The Yamaha HS7 is a popular model of monitor speaker designed for professional audio applications, including recording studios, mixing/mastering environments, and home studios.
The Yamaha HS7 is designed as a studio monitor, which means it offers a flat frequency response and accurate sound reproduction. It is specifically tuned to provide a neutral and transparent audio representation, making it suitable for critical listening and mixing tasks.
The HS7 features a 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified design. It has a 6.5-inch cone woofer for low-frequency reproduction and a 1-inch dome tweeter for high-frequency reproduction. The combination of these drivers allows for a balanced sound across the frequency spectrum.
The HS7 has a frequency response range of 43Hz to 30kHz, which covers a wide range of audible frequencies. This ensures that you can hear both the low-end and high-end details of your audio material.
The monitor speaker has a built-in amplifier with a total power output of 95 watts (LF: 60W, HF: 35W). This provides ample power to drive the drivers and deliver a clear and dynamic sound.
The HS7 offers room control and high trim switches on the rear panel. These switches allow you to adjust the speaker’s response to match the acoustics of your room or personal preference. The room control switch helps compensate for bass buildup when placed near walls, while the high trim switch allows you to fine-tune the high-frequency response.
