12 ch pwr mixer, 8 Mono, 2 Stereo, 500 watts/ch 4½, reverb, 2 x 7-band EQ
The EMX5000-12 is an ideal choice for performance venues, houses of worship, boardrooms, media presentations, and any small, budget-conscious sound reinforcement system. "The trend in contemporary sound reinforcement systems is simplicity and flexibility," states John Schauer, product manager, Professional Audio. "The EMX5000 Series takes that concept a step further with the addition of high power output and advanced signal processing."
Essentially integrated PA systems, both units provide flexible audio mixing and patching options, 9-band graphic EQ, dual integrated 500-watt amplifiers, and unprecedented dual onboard 32-bit digital effects processors. Compact designs eliminate the need for additional outboard gear, thereby reducing setup times.

All mono input channels feature balanced XLR-type mic inputs with switchable +48 Volt phantom power, line-level phone jack inputs, inserts on channels 1-8, peak level indicators, switchable high pass filters, and continuously variable gain controls. An integrated carrying handle provides easy plug-and-go system setups.
Built-in amplifiers provide 500 Watts (x 2) of efficient stereo power. Yamaha's EEEngine technology offers high power output, cool operation and low current draw. Integrated Yamaha Signal Processing (YSP) custom tailors the response to match with that of Yamaha Club Series speakers.
The mixer contains dual on-board 32-bit digital signal processing systems, each offering a selection of 16 programs, based on Yamaha's acclaimed SPX series effects processors. The effects sends feed the internal effects processors and can also be used with external devices (which then return signals back to one of the two stereo sub inputs). A flexible 9-band graphic EQ on the stereo output provides feedback control and signal shaping. "The Yamaha EMX5000 Series offers the routing, patching flexibility, power, and signal processing you'd expect from a small P.A. system," states Wayne Hrabak, marketing manager, Professional Audio. "Users can now 'just add speakers.'"
