The Stagepas 1K features Yamaha’s Twisted Flare Point technology which reduces wind noise in the bass-reflex port
Yamaha has announced its next-generation Stagepas, an all-in-one portable PA system for easier transportation. The Stagepas 1K comes with 170° coverage, slimline appearance and modified 1.5-inch drivers which all include high-end neodymium magnets. All 10 of the 1.5-inch drivers work together with a 12-inch subwoofer. The subwoofer features Yamaha’s Twisted Flare Point technology which reduces wind noise in the bass-reflex port. The back of the subwoofer uses a digital mixer with three mono mic/line channels, two of which contain high-Z connectivity for direct inputs as well as stereo inputs which support playback from Bluetooth devices.
The mixer is equipped with professional sound engineering tools which include a 1-Knob EQ which can process multi-bands, high-quality SPX digital reverb and a mode feature that adjusts to optimise compression to match different applications. Each function can be set using a rotary control to make EQ and compression easier to handle for users. Two Stagepas 1Ks can be connected in stereo or in mono if a greater coverage area is needed.
