Mackie Introduces SWA2801z Dual Subwoofer
Mackiehas introduced a new Active subwoofer, the SWA2801z, which combines dual 18-inch drivers, a built-in 800-Watt FR Series power amplifier, and Mackie’s trademark Active onboard electronics to reportedly achieve greater levels of performance and output than powered subwoofers.
Specifically designed to outperform traditional 2 x 18-inch systems, the Mackie SWA2801z benefits from Mackie’s Active electronics, which provide much greater integration of all components in the system than tradition powered loudspeakers. Mackie Active electronics are customized for each driver/cabinet/amplifier combination and provide complete, real-time control over critical functions such as crossover filters, equalization, as well as protection for both transducer and electronics. Active electronics also allow for flawless integration with full-range loudspeakers, which can be stacked or pole-mounted–whether the SWA2801z is positioned vertically or horizontally.
XLR connections on the back of the SWA2801z provide stereo input, Loop-Through and High Pass outputs, while a Subwoofer Level control allows the user to easily blend the SWA2801z with its full-range counterparts. Carrying handles are built into each side of the robust enclosure and allow for easy loading. Heavy-duty casters are attached for smooth transport.
The Mackie SWA2801z is currently shipping to authorized Mackie dealers and retails for $2299.99. More information on the Mackie SWA2801z Dual Subwoofer
