5.1-Channel Sound

The MusicCast Speaker Base uses Yamaha Digital Sound Projector technology to produce sound beams that reflect off the walls of your room to deliver true 5.1-channel surround sound.

10 Speaker Drivers in a Wood Cabinet

The large capacity cabinet is built using MDF materials with a central array of eight beam speakers and oval woofer units on both sides that together create Yamaha's Digital Sound Projector sound beams. Beams can be adjusted to cover a wider listening area with the remote control or with the dedicated Home Theater Controller app, for more people to enjoy the powerful, expansive sound.

Dual Built-In Subwoofers with Bass Reflex Ports

The subwoofers mounted on the left and right sides of the bottom surface come equipped with independent bass reflex ports. The ports reduce unwanted resonance by facilitating a smooth flow of air. Combined with the cabinet's large-capacity construction, the unit is designed to deliver rich and clear bass. The two subwoofers act in unison to deliver 60W of total power.
