Mackies new MRmk2 Reference Monitors and new TH-12A powered loudspeaker
Mackie has unveiled a complete redesign of its popular line of MRmk2 Mackie Reference Monitors.
The studio monitors feature new professional transducers specifically designed to match the respective amplification. Both models employ a 1-inch neodymium magnet-driven soft dome tweeter featuring ferro-fluid cooling to help protect against power compression during wide dynamic playback. The manufacturer reports its 5.25-inch (MR5mk2) and 8-inch (MR8mk2) hyperbolic-curved cone woofers reduce severe cone resonances, minimising distortion.
‘Mackie is well known for delivering professional monitoring solutions at affordable prices,’ remarked Mackie product manager, Matt Redmon. ‘Our new MRmk2 monitors deliver on all fronts, from an extended low-frequency response unmatched in their category, to the clear definition of mids and highs upon which engineers stake their reputations.’
The precision Class-A/B amplifier section features XLR, TRS and RCA connectivity, along with user-adjustable acoustic controls for simple room correction. The cabinet is rear-ported and features a custom Waveguide and molded baffle, offering balance to the HF / LF content while increasing both the stereo imaging and depth of field.
Mackie also announced a new addition to its Thump Series of portable, powered loudspeakers – the Thump TH-12A. The manufacturer believes its 400W, two-way 12-inch Thump Series loudspeaker is suitable for applications that demand high-output and professional sound.
The same team that created the SRM Series powered loudspeakers designed the new TH-12A. Its Class-D Fast Recovery amplification provides 400W of total system power, tuned to match the custom-designed 12-inch high-precision woofer and 1-inch compression driver. An integrated three-band EQ on the back panel allows the user to dial in the TH-12A’s tone, making it suitable for simple room correction or tonal adjust per application.
