Bold North Audio MS10-W replacement woofer for Yamaha NS10

Make Your Yamaha NS-10s Sound Like New

The odds are great that your Yamaha NS-10 monitors don't sound the way they used to. Studio monitor woofers live an especially hard life. They are often pushed past their design limits for hours at a time. Voice coils singe and deform while suspensions fatigue. The net result is increased distortion, an audible change in timbre and outright failure. This unacceptable for an industry that relies on the consistency and reliability of its tools.

Even if your NS-10s work, the woofers should be replaced every few years to restore the sound that made it the de facto standard of near-field monitors. Unfortunately, Yamaha stopped producing parts several years ago, and replacement woofers are entirely unavailable.

The Cure: Bold North Audio's MS10-W

Introducing the most accurate reproduction of a Yamaha NS-10 woofer yet developed. Many have tried but none have succeeded in recreating the exact timbre of the woofer used in the most widely used studio monitor in history…until now.

MISCO’s goal in developing the MS10-W was not to improve upon the NS-10’s woofer performance but to exactly match its sound. Making a drop-in driver with a white cone is easy; getting a perfect sonic match is very difficult.

The proof that we succeeded is in the measurements and the listening.
