Mackie this week launched the all-new Thump Series Powered Loudspeakers with over 1000 watts of power per speaker. The Thump Powered Loudspeakers feature precision crossovers, transducer time alignment and a 3-band EQ with a sweepable mid. With flexible mounting options, combo mic/line inputs and a great wedge angle, Thump full-range loudspeakers provide the application flexibility for rental, staging or permanent installs.
Mackie has also added a new Thump18S 18-inch Powered Subwoofer is a 1200-watt, professional band-pass design,. The Thump18S is designed to match with Thump top boxes, delivering what Mackie says is “high-output, chest-thumping low end perfect for any sound system.” (N.B.: Chest-thumping — that’s a new adjective I have not seen before in a press release. Also, I have to say that I love the “Thump” series product name. It’s a breath of fresh air in an industry that tends to either use model numbers — yawn — or ridiculous made up word-sandwiches like TrueBass™ or VibrrrGlass™ for product titles. Thump is short, spelled normally and totally logical for chest-thumping speakers! digress.)
The Mackie Thump Series will be available globally Q2, 2014. The Thump12 lists for $389.99, the Thump15 will list for $469.99 and the Thump18S will lists at $879.99. Here are all the specs.
