Mackie has announced the availability of the all-new, modernized refresh of their industry favorite SRM450 and SRM350 High-Definition Portable Powered Loudspeakers.
They say that, featuring a powerful new 1000W amp platform, significantly upgraded sound quality and a host of easy-to-use digital sound-shaping tools, the new SRM450 and SRM350 deliver the unparalleled ease-of-use, professional sound quality and indestructible portability that has made SRM a live sound legend.
"The original SRM450 was the first active portable loudspeaker and, today, is still the most recognized speaker out there," remarked Greg Young, Mackie Product Manager. "SRM has always meant pro performance and sound quality at an incredible price. The new SRM450 and SRM350 continue this legacy, offering improved power, sound quality and flexible tools perfect for any gig."
Here's more details in Mackie's own words...
The all-new SRM450 and SRM350 both feature a powerful new 1000W amp platform paired with custom drivers, meeting the high-output demands of modern portable applications. Featuring two new powerful, but easy-to-use, audio tools, these new SRMs can simplify setup at the gig and produce results simply not found in any other speakers at this price. Choose between four application-specific speaker modes, each re-voicing the SRM to sound its best for the application at hand. Also built-in is an intelligent feedback destroyer that makes soundcheck easier than ever. At the push of a button, SRM instantly identifies and eliminates feedback using up to four narrow 1/16th octave filters. Both models now benefit from Mackie's HD Audio Processing, which combines powerful patented acoustic correction DSP with optimization features like a precision crossover, driver time alignment and phase correction. The result is premium, professional sound quality that is noticeably more open and natural than competitive designs. Application flexible, the SRM450 and SRM350 feature an integrated 2-channel mixer with input-friendly Wide-Z™ inputs. Perfect for the singer/songwriter and more, just connect and easily mix multiple sources without the need for a separate mixer. Plus, with a wide range of mounting options and a rugged, lightweight polypropylene cabinet, SRM is extremely durable and portable.
