Mackie SRM450 PA Speaker Reviews
The sound clarity is incredible. Never has any PA speaker been so clear and distinct. A normal passive speaker system is: mixer - amp - crossover - speakers. The Mackie ACTIVE speakers change that entirely. The signal goes from the mixer directly to the electronic crossover. Then it goes to two seperate power amps. The low frequency power amp (300watts) powers a high performance 12" transducer custom made by Mackie. The high frequency amp (150watts) drives a compression horn.
The most incredible sounding speaker money can buy. Though they are not cheap, it is well worth the money. It would take a stack of speakers twice the size as one of these to produce the same volume, and they still wouldnt sound half as good.Jared rated this unit on 2001-06-29.
