THE ANCIENT ART OF MACKIE THUMP

By

March 13, 2014

Mackie SRM Series

 

The portable PA system market is always highly competitive and Mackie has decided it’s time to give its smaller SRM350 (10-inch) and SRM450 (12-inch) speakers, plus its Thump range of powered subs, all a booster shot in the arm – an injection of 1000 watts, among other things. Both these SRM models now have 1000 watt amplifiers and DSP control that gives the user a choice of four speaker modes that re-voice the cabinets to suit the venue. If you still need help, there’s also an in-built feedback eliminator (FE) that clamps down on those nasty squeals and squeaks with a 1/16th octave filter. You get four bands of feedback elimination, after that you’re on your own. An integrated 2-channel mixer lets you use the SRM’s in a pinch without a mixer.

The improved Mackie Thump (wasn’t that The Goodies’ ancient form of martial arts using black pudding?) powered subs come in a 12-inch and 15-inch types and have effectively doubled in power from the predecessors with that 1000 watts. A new 18-inch model, the Mackie Thump 18S, has a 1200 watt amp. Mackie already has larger SRM models and 18-inch subs designs, and these improvements close the gap. Technical specs are up on Mackie’s website at www.mackie.com which could also do with a make-over.
