Stunningly Simple. Impressively Professional.
What is it that makes one portable PA system stand out amongst the rest? Sound quality and output power? Flexible yet simple operation? Portability? Definitely all of the above and MORE.
With the new STAGEPAS 1K, Yamaha's primary focus was to design a complete sound system that delivers professional quality sound despite a very simple setup and operation process that allows users to focus on what matters most - their performance.
J-Curve Slim Line Array. The high-frequency speaker array is comprised of 10 small-diameter 1.5" speakers. By adopting a J-curve array configuration, the high-frequency unit achieves vertical coverage of 30 degrees across a span of 170 degrees. With such a long, 10-driver array design the STAGEPAS can deliver clear, high quality sound consistently over longer distances, projecting uniform, high-quality sound from the front to the rear of the audience.
Class-leading 12-inch compact subwoofer. The subwoofer features a 12-inch speaker unit which is hardly compact, and actually the largest in its class. However, for the STAGEPAS 1K's new design Yamaha focused on reducing enclosure size and weight in order to improve portability, thus achieving the smallest class cabinet on the market for a subwoofer of this size and power. By incorporating Yamaha's own Twisted Flare Port technology to reduce port wind noise that can occur with compact bass-reflex subwoofers, the low-end output is maximized, producing very deep, powerful, distortion-free bass.
1000W amp. Also at the top of its class for output power, the 1000W Class-D amplifier module is capable of delivering an impressive 119 dB SPL from the deceptively compact speaker cabinet. And just as importantly, we've leverage Yamaha's decades-long experience as a manufacturer of professional PA products, and innovator of related technologies to ensure that with great power comes great stability, and that the STAGEPAS 1K maintains the same accurate, superior-quality sound even at high output.
Digital mixer with versatile input. With outstanding flexibility for a PA system of this size, the 5-channel digital mixer features three channels of mono microphone/line inputs and stereo inputs, with two of the mono input channels equipped with HI-Z connectivity for direct input of acoustic-electric guitars and other instruments. In addition to Phone and 1/8" mini jacks, the stereo connections support playback with Bluetooth devices as well as a wide range of input sources from instruments to CDs, PCs and smartphones.
Professional control with a single knob. STAGEPAS 1K comes equipped with a wealth of sound shaping functions, including 1-knob EQ for optimized multi band EQ setting, industry standard SPX reverb, and the "Mode" control for master output compression settings that match various applications such as "Speech" or "Music". Each of these functions can be set via a single knob, and have simplified many of the tough tasks like EQ and compression to get you great sound fast.
STAGEPAS Editor. STAGEPAS Editor is a dedicated remote control application that allows users to adjust volume and EQ at a distance via Bluetooth during rehearsal or performance. You can also save the adjusted settings for certain songs or applications in order to shorten your setup process in the future and maintain consistency from one performance to the next. STAGEPAS Editor is available for both Android and Apple devices.
