Yamaha VC Series: Versatile lineup for a variety of requirementsSix models, three with back cans and three without, offer compatibility with a wide range of installation needs. Models that do not have back cans are more lightweight and budget friendly, and include back covers that protect the speaker unit and circuitry from dust and moisture.



Yamaha VC Series: Extremely Low-profileReduced physical depth allows installation in ceilings and walls where space is limited.



Yamaha VC Series: Elegant design blends with any décorSeveral aspects of VC Series design reflect a strong emphasis on functionality as well as aesthetics.

Shallow, lightweight, and flexible design can easily adapt to the strictest installation limitations, ensuring superb audio performance wherever they’re placed without spoiling interior design.



Yamaha VC Series: High-impedance and low-impedance supportedBoth high-impedance and low-impedance connections are supported, and speaker wattage can be easily switched even after installation.

So not only can a large number of speakers be installed with a high-impedance connection, but also a large number of speakers can be installed with a low-impedance connection due to its 16-ohm capacity. And the need for additional unit is minimized and systems can be designed to ideally meet the requirements of any application.



Yamaha VC Series: Safer, Faster InstallationThe VC Series ceiling speakers feature low profile back cans, light weight, and mechanical features that contribute to significantly safer, faster installation. In addition, large mounting clamps with non-slip treads ensure secure mounting.




Yamaha VC Series: Fast

Double threaded screws used for the speaker clamp mechanism allow the clamps to be tightened twice as fast as conventional screws.


Yamaha VC Series: Paintable

The supplied grilles can be painted any color to match interior decor.


Yamaha VC Series: Lightweight

Reduced weight increases installation flexibility while lessening the burden on installation personnel.


Yamaha VC Series: Portable

A built-in “carrying band” not only makes the speaker easy to carry around, but also increases safety when working on a stepladder.
