MESSE: TAPCO Release Affordable PA Speakers

Series 69 from Mackie spin off.      31/03/04
New for the MESSE are the TAPCO Series 69 loudspeakers. TAPCO is an old audio company name associated with good value products (started in 1969 with a 6 channel PA mixer designed by Greg Mackie). Mackie have revived the brand with this range of speakers. These are a range of speakers designed to give the sound and build quality associated with speakers at a higher price point.

6912 (12" bass driver)
The 69 range consists of two models the 6912 (12" driver) and 6915 (15" driver). They are both 8 ohms and can handle 250W continuously. The difference comes in their frequency response (as you'd expect) with the 6912 providing coverage from 70Hz to 20kHz and the 6915 50Hz to 16kHz.

6915 (15" bass driver)
Although we didn't get to here them at the show their construction was very rugged. These look like they will last the rigours of a touring life. The suggested pricing for these is $339 and $369 (expect the street prices to be $40 less) and they will be available soon (Q2 2004). Further details available at the new TAPCO web site ( http://www.tapcogear.com).
