These Speakers Rock!

Ask me a question

Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

Bought a set of BR-15?s (Factory Restocks). The price sure was right and a really great deal. The speakers arrived in perfect shape, not a dent or scratch on em.?I wanted a smaller and a little lighter 15? speaker to use for a smaller venue I play twice a month, and these fit the bill. Before buying, I Compared the BR-15?s to the Peavey PV-115 and the plastic PR series. The specs are similar but I thought these Yamaha?s were a better speaker. At 46 lbs, they are fairly light and their slightly smaller size makes them very easy to get on and off stands. Not to mention, saving my back by letting me leave my massive 60 lb Peavey SP5?s At home. These speakers are well built and will stand up to normal abuse. Now that I?ve done a few shows with them, I?m very happy with the sound. They sound great, and the louder I push them, the bass seems to come alive. If you want more bass, then you?ll need subs. About the only negative I could find was that the BR-15 is no longer made in the U.S.A. As it states in Yamaha?s own product brochure and the Musician?s Friend In-depth review of the BR series. They are actually now made in Indonesia. Well, at least it?s not the dreaded ?China? stamped on there. Still, all in all, these are really great speakers!

Great crowd reaction

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

A decade after the "glory days" of my college band, I decided to re-enter the live gig world solo or with a buddy as a duo acoustic act. Several solo musicians emphatically suggested going with 15's if not subs with smaller speakers. Since I may be lugging it around alone, I chose the former. I got BR15's and have been extremely satisfied.Not only is the sound full and deep, but the babes in the crowd can't seem to stay clothed when brown-eyed-girl pumps through these speakers. They stand in front of those speaker screens and start to shed layers. I've seen 18 B's, 8 C's, and 4 D's in my last two gigs. I, as a serious musician, have been appalled by this behavior, but a performer must adapt.That being told, these speakers have been reliable and dependable. I've also played several gigs with the old five-piece band and the BR15's have been solid with enough capacity for a pretty good sized room.

    Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

    OK...so we used to use the Yamaha S115 Club Series speakers for our band. But they belonged to our former bass player. I own the Yamaha PA head, so we needed to find new speakers for the band. Looked again at the S115 Club Series--they are fine but quite heavy. I'm an old guy (and none of the folks in the band are all that young) and have had surgery for a couple of hernias. So we were looking for the Yamaha quality of sound, but wanted something a bit more easy to lift and transport. These seemed to fit the bill. Also got them during a special MF sale and the price was killer. So far we've used them during band rehearsals and just last evening at a large hall gig. They seemed to work just fine. Easy to get them up on stands, sound was good and they recorded well, also. Though that is only limited use to this point in time, they seem to be doing the trick just fine. We're happy. They also seem rugged enough.

    Push To The Limit

    By Back40FrontMan

    from Nashville

    Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

    I bought 2 of these 4 years ago while I was DJing down in Florida. They were great had plenty of punch and clear highs. I then moved to Nashville 2 years ago and have been using these as 2 of my 4 mains. Ive pushed them hard for long hours with no problems ever. I would have thought they would have blown awile ago, but they are still going strong. My only complaint is I wish they would have speakons..but other than that great speakers.

    Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

    These speakers are AMAZING!you can really pump some volume out of these, my school has 2 of these, and they have way more than enough power to support a general use auditorium that seats 621 people with 2 levels!I also use them to DJ dances, and they have unbelievable bass output, really, really strong speakers. they can really take a beating. I've pumped 800 watts per channel through these things for at least 2 hours at max volume, I haven't noticed any loss of quality or damage since we've gotten them. These speakers are perfect for almost anything!

    Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

    These speakers are impressive. Punchy low end, crisp and clear mid and upper range. Well constructed. They're not too heavy(46lbs)making it easy on the back. I've been making a good living doing gigs of all kinds for over 35yrs. I've played through Peaveys, Bose, JBLs and to me, these speakers hit the sweet spot. I use a Mackie 808M p.a. head and was able to dial in the speakers in no time. Solid investment, you won't be disappointed.

      Bought these with Crown X4000 amp. The sound emphasizes higher frequencies a little more than I like but a bit of EQ fixes that.

      Man! What a difference 5 inches makes! I am running 2 of these as mains and am using my SoundTech 10's as monitors. These babies really punch out the base and everything in between. I highly recommend these.

      Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

      These things are great. Put some power behind them and you can blow out a room with ease.They aren't quite as rugged as the club series, but if you treat things like crap, regardless of what it is, it's gonna suffer. These babies have whithstood some serious wear and tear. I use them as my mains and they can compete with any Mackie's out there.You'll be happy you bought them, and you'll have enough left over for cables and stands and still have money left. I own four of these.

      Good Speaker, Unreliable Dealer

      By nixon1327

      from Conway, AR

      Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

      These Speakers are great. Good sound, handles heavy road abuse. So I decided to get two more from musician's friend. NEVER order anything from here if you have any need for it within the same month. The first time I got one BR15 and one BR12. So I sent the 12 back. Packing Mistake? Today, I got the replacement. It was a BR15 at least. But the grill and speaker were almost completely detached from the cabinet. So I just asked for my money back this time. My advice: If you got the time and don't mind risking the headache, go ahead and get it here. You'll probably save a little cash. But if you're a working musician and need the gear you buy, go somewhere else. You might pay more, but you'll save a lot of time and trouble.

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

      These are great speakers. I use them for dj'ing. Yamaha recomends to use their club v series for dj'ing, but these are great for dj'ing. These speakers are plently for a school cafeteria and other places about that size. They hit all the high's with a very clear horn, and all the lows with a powerful bass. The only thing i have negative to say about them is that I had a little trouble getting the speakers on stands because the mount was a little tight, but in then end it all worked out, it just took a little more effort than I expected. I would definitely buy this product again!

      Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

      I've been using a pair of these over a year and they've held up very well. Compared to features of comparable brands these are somewhat "old school" but totally reliable, consistent and roadworthy. I've been in music for over 20 years and the sound they give reminds me of the "good old days." There are better sounding speakers out there but very few can be used and abused and still perform as consistently as these do night after night with almost no maintenance.

      Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

      I've had a set of these for 3 years now and I think they are awesome. Small medium and large venue's. Although we always add some subs at large venue's I still think these are great quality. Straight Quarter inch jack inputs are nice. I'm glad that the handles aren't plastic because they've been through a lot. Definately get some speaker stands with these. I highly recommend these.

      I bought a set of these for my church and they are loud. I've had all the older people come up to me and said they could finally hear what people were saying. They could use a little more bass but a couple hundered dollar amp and sub solved that problem. A great quality and sound for the price. A must have in my book.

      BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Yamaha BR15 15" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet:

      The most important aspect of this speaker is the price. At the price, you're getting a really good speaker that is capable of producing sound, and having a long life. Its should be bought instead of any Nady, Behringer, etc. The cab is rugged, yet light in weight. The sound produced by it will get the job done, however, it doesn't have the dynamic range as slightly more expensive cabinets. With a good EQ/Mixer, the sound can be manipulated for great vocal use in bands, and to produce highs if there is a subwoofer to pick up the low end. One positive thing about it is that you don't need a very expensive amp to make it sound loud. A mid level QSC RMX, or even an entry level CROWN XLS will get the job done well. Its not ideal for full range sound of DJs and house system installs. Use it right, and it really is a lot of bang for your buck.

      I use these speakers to gig with a med-ized band, I DJ with them and I've used them to monitor mixes with. They have great handling of all freq and with the right eq's and processors you can really feel the bass. In a college dorm they work great because they are light and rugged (i have dropped them) and they fill space evenly and nicely. Good Value for getting the job done right.
