Neutrik speakON NL4MP connectors provide safe, reliable and flexible connectivity. Equipped with two input/parallel connectors for multiple subwoofers plus one unique output connector for flexible set up to full-range CZR loudspeakers or cardioid mode setting. It is capable the simpler connection with single 4-pole speakON cable.


Intelligent processing to maximize system performance

When used in combination with Yamaha PX Series amplifiers or other compatible signal processors, CZR Series loudspeakers can take full advantage of dedicated speaker processor tuning settings. Additionally, like the DXS XLF models, CXS XLF subwoofers are capable of use in cardioid mode provided the processor has the dedicated DSP settings (visit Yamaha pro-audio website for more information).
