Mackie SP260 2x6 speaker processor
Frankfurt, Germany (March 22, 2012)—Mackie is debuting a range of gear designed for passive systems, including the S500 Series passive loudspeakers, FRS Series power amplifiers and the SP260 2x6 speaker processor.
The S500 passive loudspeakers utilize high-output transducers and feature NL4 and 1/4-inch inputs and thru connections. There are three full-range boxes in the series: the S512 2-way 12-inch, the S515 2-way 15-inch and the S525 2-way dual 15-inch. There is also a companion 18-inch subwoofer, the S518.
Available in two different high-powered configurations (FRS-1700 and FRS-2800), Mackie FRS Series power amplifiers utilize Mackie's Fast Recovery technology.
The SP260 2x6 speaker processor provides system optimization for both passive and powered systems. The six outputs feature five different operating modes to cover a range of systems. Each output features dedicated level control, polarity invert, high/low-pass filters, 7-band parametric/shelving EQ, 600ms delay and limiting. Two input channels provide independent 600ms delay and a flexible 5-band parametric/shelving EQ. The front-panel control also includes 7-segment LED metering per channel. The SP260 utilizes high-end 24-bit AKM AD/DA converters with a 120 dB dynamic range.
All three series are scheduled for Q2, 2012 availability.
