Yorkville’s élite series loudspeaker systems are the result of years of
research, pushing the limits of modern state-of-the-art sound reinforcement
technology. Engineered for the serious pro audio user, élite systems are among
the most advanced, most versatile and most efficient high powered portable P.A.
Today’s élites, from the highly efficient two-way E10 to the 2400 watt E2152 have some of the most advanced component protection and crossover technology available today. They have been carefully designed to bring you the latest in Yorkville’s advanced loudspeaker engineering.
Ideal for any small PA rental house, installer or sound company, these loudspeakers may replace a number of specific application cabinets in any inventory.
A modified trapezoidal shape and recessed input jack panel and handles mean these cabinets can function perfectly as a wedge monitor or front-of-house loudspeaker. Unlike some ‘multi-function’ loudspeakers currently in the marketplace, great care has been taken in the design process to ensure that élite cabinets will perform without compromising functionality as either a monitor or a front-of-house enclosure. Neither application was considered as an afterthought.
Several of the élite loudspeakers are loaded with 80° x 50° rotatable ABS Waveguide horn assemblies (the E10 utilizes a 100° x 25° horn). The ability to rotate the horn assembly ensures that the cabinet can provide optimum high frequency dispersion when the loudspeaker is used in either a vertical, horizontal or arrayed application.
Integrated stand mount adapters and flyware means these enclosures can be utilized in any permanent install or touring application. In addition, the modified cabinet shape means the élite series can be installed much closer to vertical surfaces and in some cases, under balconies in tight locations, and can be arrayed in a much tighter less obtrusive cluster.
Of course, the élite series has retained the features and high quality sound that have made them so popular including Yorkville's famous two year (even if you break it!) transferable warranty.*

Advanced Crossover Networks and Protection Schemes
The majority of the élite range feature seamless driver interaction through sophisticated high-slope passive networks and ingenious component protection schemes. Rugged jackplates are inset and include a combination of both Speakon™ and 1/4" phone jack inputs.
Advanced PTC™ Horn Protection makes its debut in the élite series.
PTC™ is an ingenious current sensing / self resetting breaker that offers some serious advantages over current protection schemes used in many loudspeaker cabinets. This protection scheme, while always present in the signal path, remains inaudible until it becomes necessary for it to react. It kicks in at a point where it effectively reduces output to the horn and protects that diaphragm from damage due to excessive power input or signal distortion. Unlike a breaker it does not require a physical reset to allow signal back to the horn driver, and unlike a bulb or fuse, does not need to be replaced if the circuit is tripped, and the fuse is blown.
Where PTC shines is in heavy feedback environments where most horn diaphragm damage occurs. In rare situations even where a microphone might be dropped in a monitor, the sustained ‘squeal’ can destroy diaphragms in seconds. PTC™ will significantly reduce output level to the horn to protect the diaphragm. When the situation has been rectified, and the feedback eliminated the horn will return to full operating level within half a second.
The E2152 features the ATP™ (Active-Transistor) protection system, which allows the horn driver to operate at levels significantly above those required for normal operation. The ATP™ brickwall element of the protection circuit uses power transistors configured to operate linearly yet have the fast attack required to protect against harmful transients. Along with ATP™, the crossover also incorporates air core coils and polypropylene capacitors to guarantee reliable and distortion free operation at extreme levels. The sonic benefit is higher output and greater transparency when operating at high levels.
