Mackie has released an all-new flagship range of DRM Professional Powered Loudspeakers.

Mackie DRM Professional Powered LoudspeakersOffering up to 2.3kW of power, DSP and built-in full colour displays, the line is suited to use by mobile DJs, rental companies and bands, as well as in installations and houses of worship. DRM models include the 1.6kW 12-inch DRM212, 1.6kW 15-inch DRM215, 2.3kW 15-inch three-ay DRM315, 2kW 12-inch DRM12A Array, and 2kW 18-inch DRM18S Subwoofer. These models use class-D amplifiers with next-gen system protection. Universal power supplies (100-240V), and feature Power Factor Correction technology that regulates incoming voltage for peak performance even with unstable AC power.

All models are also available in passive versions.

At the heart of the DRM Series loudspeakers is Mackie’s Advanced Impulse DSP module. Precision crossovers, transducer time-alignment, and meticulously tuned FIR filters overcome inherent physical attributes that can contribute to poor sound, especially at high SPL. The result is crystal clear, punchy sound typically experienced only with massive touring systems. ’Advanced Impulse DSP is the result of countless hours of testing, tuning, and comparing,’ says Mackie Director of Product Marketing, Matt Redmon. ‘It’s almost like the speakers disappear and you get an incredibly immersive listening experience, even at wall-shaking levels.’

The DRM Control Dashboard features a best-in-class high-contrast, full-colour display on the rear panel for quick and easy set-up. The default screen shows all the most important settings, levels, and meters. Full-range models offer three-band parametric EQ, venue specific voicing modes, alignment delay, user presets and system lock. The subwoofer features a variable crossover, cardioid mode, and more.

‘Mackie has always made intuitive control and ease-of-use a top priority,’ says Redmon. ‘We needed a display that was easy to read and always shows you what is important at a glance. DRM Control Dashboard was the answer.’

Custom high-sensitivity woofers and titanium diaphragm compression drivers housed in braced plywood cabinets are designed for consistent performance in the most demanding applications. On the exterior, each DRM is covered in a touring-grade textured coating and paint that is made to last. The unique ported design of DRM cabinets allows for punchy, responsive bass while simultaneously helping to keep the amplifier cool.

DRM Series Loudspeakers offer all the configuration options necessary 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.

Up to four DRM12A cabinets plus two DRM18S subwoofers can be flown for venues, houses of worship and other large spaces. For customers that require passive loudspeakers, every DRM Series model is available as a passive version. Available in select countries, MX Series Professional Power Amplifiers are a match for DRM Series Passive Loudspeakers.
