Mackie Has New Flagship Loudspeaker Series

Mackie says its new DRM Professional Powered Loudspeakers are its top-of-the-line loudspeaker products. With up to 2,300 watts of power, built-in DSP and full color displays, the DRM Loudspeakers offer what Mackie says is its best quality and reliability for a wide range of applications, including bands, install, houses of worship, rental systems and live events. Available models include the 1,600-watt 12″ DRM212, 1,600-watt 15″ DRM215, 2,300-watt 15″ 3-Way DRM315, 2,000-watt 12″ DRM12A Array, and 2,000-watt 18″ DRM18S Subwoofer. All models are also available in passive boxes.

DRM Series Professional Powered Loudspeakers deliver up to 2300 watts via ultra-efficient Class-D amplifiers with next-gen system protection. Universal power supplies (100-240V) feature Power Factor Correction technology that regulates incoming voltage for peak performance even with unstable AC power.

At the heart of every DRM Series loudspeaker is Mackie’s Advanced Impulse DSP module. Precision crossovers, transducer time-alignment and FIR filters overcome inherent physical attributes that can contribute to poor sound, especially at high SPL.

The DRM Control Dashboard features a color LCD display on the back panel for setup. On the default screen are all the settings, levels, and meters. Full-range models offer 3-band parametric EQ, venue specific voicing modes, alignment delay, user presets, and system lock. The subwoofer features a variable crossover, cardioid mode and more.

Custom high-sensitivity woofers and titanium diaphragm compression drivers housed in braced plywood cabinets are designed for consistent performance. On the exterior, each DRM is covered in a touring-grade textured coating. DRM Series Loudspeakers offer all the configuration options you would expect for professional applications. Equipped with M10 flypoints, dual angle pole mounts, and available line array configurations for maximum versatility. Both the DRM212 and DRM215 feature angled cabinet designs to allow for use as high-powered floor monitors.

The series also offers solutions for production and install applications. Fly up to four DRM12A cabinets plus two DRM18S subwoofers for large venues and houses of worship. For customers that require passive loudspeakers, every DRM Series model is available as a passive version. Available in select countries, our all-new MX Series Professional Power Amplifiers are the perfect match for DRM Series Passive Loudspeakers. Combine with our SP260 Loudspeaker Processor for the ultimate Mackie passive system.
