    Comments about Mackie DLM8 8” Active PA Cabinet:

    Just started using a DLM system at band practice after hearing about them late last year. These things kill! Tons of volume – enough to compete with a DW drum kit and an SVT-810 rig – and lots of options on the back panel you don't find on other monitors. For practices, we don't even need a separate mixer anymore! The only thing we mic at practice right now is vocals, and those go right into the back of the singer's monitor, which controls level, EQ, reverb and – wait for it – feedback elimination. We've never heard the vocals so loud and clear! And not having to turn down your volume to get rid of feedback is awesome.

    Our bassist also picked up a DLM8 for a queue wedge and loves it. We're certain it's the lightest piece of equipment he owns. It's tiny, but it really handles a beating.

    Anyway, if you're looking for your new PA, look no further. The size/shape of these speakers is a bit odd at first (compared to other designs), but once you hear them there's no turning back.

    Thinking about picking up the sub next for bass/kick reinforcement. If it's anything like these top boxes, we'll be in for another pleasant surprise.
