Mackie SP260 2×6 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 2×6 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 2×6 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.
