Mackie has launched a new flagship loudspeaker series: DRM Professional Powered Loudspeakers.
Created for a variety of applications, including mobile DJs, bands, install, Houses of Worship and rental systems, the DRM loudspeakers can reach up to 2300W of power, and they include DSP and built-in full colour displays. They are available in the 1600W 12″ DRM212, 1600W 15″ DRM215, 2300W 15″ 3-Way DRM315, 2000W 12″ DRM12A array, and 2000W 18″ DRM18S subwoofer. All of the models are available in passive boxes.
The universal power supplies (100-240V) of the loudspeakers feature Power Factor Correction technology that regulates incoming voltage, even with unstable AC power. Mackie’s Advanced Impulse DSP module provides precision crossovers, transducer time-alignment, and tuned FIR filters.
“Advanced Impulse DSP is the result of countless hours of testing, tuning, and comparing,” said Matt Redmon, Mackie director of product marketing. “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 high-contrast, full-colour display and all of the significant settings, levels and meters can be found on the default screen. Full-range models offer 3-band parametric EQ, venue specific voicing modes, alignment delay, user presets, and system lock. The subwoofer features a variable crossover and cardioid mode.
“Mackie has always made intuitive control and ease-of-use a top priority,” added 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.”
The DRM is designed with custom, high-sensitivity woofers and titanium diaphragm compression drivers in braced plywood cabinets, and on the exterior, it is covered in a touring-grade textured coating and paint. It comes equipped with M10 flypoints, dual angle pole mounts, and line array configurations for versatility.
“DRM Series Loudspeakers are truly the best loudspeakers we’ve ever designed,” remarked Redmon. “But don’t take my word for it, give them a listen. You really need to hear it to believe it.”
