Awesomely Practical Speakers

Comments about Yamaha A15 15" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

These speakers are great! I use them for an acoustic duo. I use the Yahama EMX512 SC powered mixer with them and the sound is fantasic at any level. We have yet to turn the volume past 3 on the EMX512 SC mixer at any of the clubs we've played at. The clarity and punch are exactly what you could want in such a light-weight and easy to transport speaker. I have not used them at extremely high volumes yet, but I'm sure they can handle it just fine because they have an auto-limiter feature that will prevent them from blowing if the power load is too much. Perfect for a duo or even a full band in a medium sized (I would say 300 person) venue. What more could you want?
Versatile with any power amp because it has both Speak-on and 1/4" inputs/outputs on the back. They can be bridged or run in stereo very easily just by hooking them up accordingly.
Yamaha - the name says it all...
If you are going to buy 2 of these, get the pair deal, it's cheaper than buying 1 at a time if you need 2.

    Comments about Yamaha A15 15" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

    I have had these almost 2 years now an they have been great.Speakers have a good sound and dont need a lot of EQ'ing.They are not all that heavy and have a better sound then the "plastic" speaker enclousures".Anyone that needs good dependable speakers at a low price would be happy with these.

      Comments about Yamaha A15 15" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

      The speaker weighs around 50lbs, which is good in my eyes. This is a very well constructed heavy duty speaker that produces great sound. I have found the "light-weight" speakers to not have the punch on the low end and crisp high ends that this speaker can provide. Great value!!

      Great Value Good Stuff

      By Live, Loud, and Up Close,Joe

      from Morrisonville, NY

      Comments about Yamaha A15 15" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

      My old Yamaha speakers still work great but they seem to have gotten heavier after 25 years. My entire band is impressed with these A15s. We tried some of those new light weight plastic speakers, but they couldn't take the low vocals up close to the mike . I'm very happy with the sound from these cheaply priced(but high quality) Yamaha A15s , and I can put them on the stand by myself. What a deal!!! Thanks Yamaha.

      A15's

      from South Carolina

      Comments about Yamaha A15 15" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

      I love the way these cabnets sound. Great punch, balanced without the shrill highs and they don't break apart at high levels. Sounds tight in a mid size room. I drive them with a Hafler 2400.
      Not everything, but everything you need. Speakon connectors are great!
      As is the case with most fabric covered speakers - some wrinkles. But really, who cares? They are going to get banged up anyway.
      Best bang (boom?) for the buck by far! Brand name goodness for crap brand prices. Who can complain about that?

      Great Workhorse Cabs

      Comments about Yamaha A15 15" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

      I've had a pair of these for a few months and love them. I'm running them for highs and mids mounted atop a pair of B52 LX18EV3's and it's a great setup. If you just need a pair of hard working, reliable cabs these are great! They may not have many features (if any) but they sound amazing.

      Comments about Yamaha A15 15" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

      Hey guys these cabs really are good, at low level of volumen the sound is excellent. There is a feauture not mentioned by yamaha that I discover throught use, it is when you push to extreme load (above 400 watts aprox, wich is the rated program) the drivers automaticly turn off to avoid to be burn. Excellent feature no, it is? of course it is. I definetly recomend this model A15, no doubt about. Thankspractice and enjoy!

        I bought another brand and was not satisfied with the quality of the sound prior to purchase this pair of A15. I used these A15 for a friends (50 people) gathering KARAOKE party, everyone agreed that these A15 speakers are the best for the money. Of course there are other products would provide better quality of sounds but cost much more.

          These work well, here's why...

          Comments about Yamaha A15 15" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

          Yamaha's dedication to solid engineering and manufacturing excellence really show in these old-school workhorse cabs. They use real birch plywood, not flimsy MDF. They use switchcraft and Neutric connectors. They make their own speakers which are VERY strong for the price range. If you already have a good amp like QSC ( my fave) you can't go wrong with these. Highly recomended!

          I use them for medium size venues, coupled with a Yamaha Power mixer. They work pretty good, a little muddy and thin on the highs, but very good considering the price. Excellent value!

            What a great speaker. These sound fantastic. I have the more expensive CM series monitors so I knew I liked Yahama speakers and took a chance on these lesser priced mains. You can not hardly tell the difference between the two. I use them for playing live music at clubs, I have DJ a wedding reception, and used them to do sound for a High School swing choir show last week. I absolutely love them!

                I run these speakers on a Yamaha rs500 2 channel receiver at 75 watts per channel and they sound amazing at all volume levels .yes you can use these for home audio and they'll shake things off the wall .love these speakers want 2 more so I can go wire down to a 4 ohm load and double my receivers power output . Yes buy these speakers can't go wrong.

                Perfect For DJ's and Live Sound

                Comments about Yamaha A15 15" 2-Way Loudspeaker:

                I purchased these about a year ago new from musicians friend and pair these with a qsc RMX 850 and these things are the bomb. Now saying all of that I only push these at 200w at 8 ohms, each at venues from 100-250 people. Upgrading to a GX5 to get 500w each. The are a tad big heavy but good speakers need to be a little heavy. I am more than likely going to buy some more. These are some of the best speakers I have ever use and owned.

                I have had this speaker for about a month and combined it with a QSC RMX1450. It is amazing. You get the well known Yamaha quality and crisp sound at a great price. I plan on buying more A series speakers to expand my set-up.

                For the price, it is pretty hard to top these speakers. Hooks these up to a QSC and you are off to the races! I used these speakers last week and I was impressed with the clarity and bass response. They are as clear as a Bose and they bang as if they are JBL's. These are great speakers for the DJ who is looking for affordable start up gear.
