Yorkville's New YSM2P Active Monitors

May 4, 2005

The YSM2P powered speaker enclosure system is an advanced studio monitor. It is equally at home in a professional recording studio, project studio, or even a living room. Development of the renowned YSM1P has helped us provide the YSM2P with functionality and user-friendliness at a truly reasonable cost. Components include a 1-inch domed tweeter and a 5 1/4-inch woofer. The woofer is a low-resonance 4-ohm driver fabricated with a woven laminate cone (which helps promote use of the full 32 watts of power from the YSM2P's internal LF amplifier). The HF side of amplifier is capable of delivering up to 14 watts to the 1-inch, high-performance tweeter. Optimal performance is also achieved by use of an active crossover specifically developed for the YSM2P . The YSM2P also features an input trim control for precision tweaking according to room acoustics.

A smooth frequency response gives the YSM2P ample source representation without equalization. A precisely tuned active crossover enables each driver to take advantage of the bi-amplification. 1/4-inch or XLR input jacks allow for maximum versatility.

The input, located at the rear of the enclosure, accepts line-level signal only (not speaker level). It is ideal to use balanced, shielded cables with a 1/4-inch (TRS) or XLR connector however unbalanced ? inch jacks can also be used. Each YSM2P should be connected to a single line-level source (e.g., the Right or Left line output from a mixer or preamp). If you want to use multiple YSM2P's, they can be interconnected using "Y" adaptors.

The Input Trim control allows you to adjust the volume of each monitor until the desired sound level and Left/Right (or Front/Rear) balance is achieved. If clipping distortion becomes audible, reduce the Input Trim level. If more signal reduction is needed, lower your line level from the source with the mixer¼s master level controls.

Shielded drivers ensure the YSM2P's can be located close to computer and video monitors or hard drive recording systems.

The YSM2P uses a bi-amplification system with separate power amps for the tweeter and the woofer The YSM2P utilizes an electronically active crossover network tuned specifically for each driver. This type of crossover network divides the signal much more precisely than traditional passive crossover networks.
