Yamaha Design “Synapses” STAGEPAS 1K
A slim, easy-to-use, portable PA system with a powerful sound.
A compact and sturdy cabinet with a slim vertical bar. The STAGEPAS 1K features a trapezoidal cross-section with the side surfaces on the bar sloping inwards towards the front at four degrees and those on the subwoofer sloping outwards by the same amount, so that the contrast between the two functional shapes with differing personalities creates a sharp appearance.
Ten small-diameter units, arranged in a J-shape as viewed from the left, deliver uniform volume and sound quality over a wide range. The speaker array and spacer assembly can be easily inserted and removed from the subwoofer for easy setup with no special expertise required.
The layout of the handle and mixer were arranged to fit into the limited space, like fitting in pieces of a puzzle. What appear at a glance to be straight parts are in fact finely shaped to a curve with a radius of 12 m. The result is a rigid and sturdy cabinet.
When illuminated on stage, the subwoofer gives a slim-looking effect thanks to the vertical highlights of the rounded sides of the cabinet front.. The resolute stance of the STAGEPAS 1K creates a contrast of static and motion juxtaposed with the performers.
