Mackie Announces Much Anticipated SRMv2 Active Loudspeakers

SRM450v2 Active LoudspeakerFRANKFURT, Germany – 12 March, 2008 – Ten years after launching the SRM450 and creating the Active loudspeaker market, Mackie today announced the next generation of its industry-standard SRM Series Active loudspeakers. The SRM450v2 and SRM350v2 provide the ultimate in power, clarity and punch and re-set the bar for performance in the active loudspeaker category.

In addition to the renowned active electronics and rugged polypropylene cabinet featured in the originals, the new models feature high-tech Class-D, fast-recovery amplification, and ultra-efficient switching power supplies along with a lightweight neodymium woofer and an all-new titanium dome compression driver. The SRM450v2 is 11 pounds lighter than its predecessor and now cast in a distinctive midnight blue enclosure.

“The change in sound from the originals is noticeable across the entire frequency range- the low end is punchier, the highs are more brilliant and the clarity of the mids are greatly improved thanks to the tuning expertise from EAW’s engineers,? said John Boudreau, Mackie Brand Group VP. “The original SRM’s have been the industry standard for sound quality for a decade; we needed to step it up and create a new standard- that’s what we’ve done with the SRMv2,? finished Boudreau.

The SRM450v2 features a built-in 300W class-D, Fast Recovery LF amp / 100W HF amp and weighs 40 lbs. The SRM350v2 features a built-in 165W class-D, Fast Recovery LF amp / 30W HF amp and weighs 26 lbs. The SRMv2s will be available domestically in February 2008 and internationally in March 2008. The SRM350v2 will be €599 and have a U.S. MSRP of $699.99. The SRM450v2 will be €799 and have a U.S. MSRP of $899.99. Hear their European debut at Prolight + Sound 2008, Frankfurt, Germany in Halle 4.1 Stand F51.
