Mackie delivers pure studio-monitor performance at full-on loudspeaker levels with the SRM450v2 powered PA speaker. Sam Ash Direct has the guaranteed lowest price and fast free, shipping.

Incorporating technology used in their critically-acclaimed recording studio monitors, Mackie has created a loud, loveable monster in the SRM450v2 powered PA speaker, delivering pure studio-monitor performance at full-on loudspeaker levels. Weighing in at just 40 lbs., the loudspeakers distribute high-volume output utilizing the highest-quality components known to Mackie for the size and price, making them a terrific value.

Housed within the high-pressure injected polypropylene cabinet is a 12" woofer, multi-cell horn aperture, and HF waveguide engineered for an even and wide dispersion. The onboard 2-way bi-amplified system is powered by 2 built-in amplifiers: a 300-watt Class-D fast recovery LF amp and a 100-watt HF amp. The built-in phase-accurate 24dB Linkwitz-Riley electronic crossover ensures that the proper frequency is guided to the correct speaker component. This provides your audience with flawless, intelligible music and speech reproduction. A built-in protection circuit ensures the performance won’t come to a halt due to speaker overload. Bass output is so accurate and punchy on the SRM450v2 that you may very well forego hauling that subwoofer to your next gig. These babies crank, but don’t break up — just smooth, full-range sound gig after gig.

Around the back of the stylish midnight blue enclosure is an XLR connector pair (input and thru) along with a level adjustment, low-cut filter, contour switch (to add a bit of air), AC cable connection input, peak level indicator, and a power switch. You can mount the speaker on a pole with its built-in socket or fly it vertically or horizontally using its integrated M10 mounting points. You can even use the SRM450v2 as a wedge monitor.

        Comments about Mackie SRM450v2 12" Two-Way Powered PA Cabinet (Single, Black):

        Let me begin by saying I wholeheartedly agree with the positve reviews of the new Mackie srm450v2's. I am a professional singer who does vocal impersonations of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Bobby Darin. I recently decided to purchase my own sound system for smaller venues and rely on Pro sound people only for my larger events. For my type of singing and music tracks, clarity and "room filling" capability are everything. I walked into Sam Ash in White Plains, NY fully prepared to buy a pair of JBL EON 515's based on past experience with other JBL products. I had no prior experience with Mackie. I can't thank Chris, the sales person in the Live Sound Section, enough for suggesting I try the Mackie's. He hooked up both the srm450v2 and the EON 515. I sang "I've Got The World On A String" through each of them. The was no comparison. The srm450v2 was brighter and clearer that the EON 515. The JBL did not sound "warm as I've heard them described. I think people are confusing warm with "muddy" because that's how they sounded. Muddy and not as loud. I also listened to QSC K series line. They sounded clearer than the JBL, but no better than the Mackie's. Here's the real bottom line. Can you get speakers that sound better than the srm450v2? Yes, but not for this price. Mackie matches the performance of speakers costing far more. For [$] more than the cost of two JBL EON 515's alone, I was able to buy two Mackie srm450v2's, the floor stands, a yamaha mixing board, a mic stand and all associated mic cables, extension cords and adapters for my IPOD and Laptop. You can't beat that deal. I don't know why there are so many mackie haters out there. Personally, I have investigated many of the negative claims and I think that most are the result of user misuse. Overheating? Seems to be associated with the original srm450 not the new v2 and even at that, only when lying on it's side as a floor monitor. When upright on the floor or on a pole, no problem. Breaking up at high volume? I haven't heard that myself. On the downside they are heavier than the JBL's by 8lbs, but they also have two, technically, three handles so they are really a lot easier to carry. My sound man says they are easy to setup and adjust for a gig. I think these speakers could easily handle a one of my shows for 200 people. After that I would add a sub woofer perhaps. I could see where people may have been put off by the Midnight Blue color they had when the new srm450v2's were first released, but they have since brought back the classier looking Black, which I have. Great Speaker, and with my sennheiser wireless mic, they help me give great performances.

        Comments about Mackie SRM450v2 12" Two-Way Powered PA Cabinet (Single, Black):

        I am a professional singer who does vocal impersonations of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Bobby Darin. I recently decided to invest in my own sound system for use in small to medium sized venues rather than having to rely on sound reinforcement people which can be expensive and unnecessary unless the venue is large. Talk to 5 people about what the best speakers are and you get 5 different opinions. Additionally it's all so subjective. I listened to JBL EON 515's, QSC K series and could have listened to alot more. I have a pretty discerning ear, but I could hear no difference that would justify buying the more expensive JBL's or QSC's. If anything, the JBL's weren't as loud and sounded "muddy" rather than "warm" as I've heard them described. I originally walked in planning to buy the JBL's and was disappointed in them. The QSC's were fine, but no better than the SRM450's in my view and as expensive as the JBL's. I bought the Mackie SRM450v2's. They were [$] I was able to buy my whole system, the speakers, the mixing board, the stands, cables, etc for less than than the price of either the JBL or QSC speakers alone. I used the system the first time this past Friday at the exclusive West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills and the sound was great! The speakers themselves are built like tanks and the basic black color is very upscale to me. They are easy to use and paired with a yamaha mixing board and my Sennheiser EW 115-G3 mic did an excllent job. The kid who runs sound for me loved them. I will admit they are are heavier than the JBL's ( 40lbs vs 32lbs ), but I really don't think saving 8lbs is worth spending $350 and the SRM450v2's sounded louder and crisper. In my opinion if you're on the fence as to what to buy, save yourself alot of time, trouble and money and just buy the SRM450v2's. They sound great and seem virtually indestructible.
