Mackie introduces new flagship loudspeaker series

Mackie has announced its new flagship DRM Series professional powered loudspeakers.

The DRM loudspeakers, with their 2300W of power, class D amplifiers and built-in full colour displays, are designed for a wide range of applications, particularly mobile DJs, bands, install, Houses of Worship, rental systems, and more.

Available in the 1600W 12" DRM212, 1600W 15" DRM215, 2300W 15" 3-Way DRM315, 2000W 12" DRM12A Array, and 2000W 18" DRM18S Subwoofer – plus all models are available in passive boxes. Universal power supplies (100-240V) feature Power Factor Correction technology that regulates incoming voltage for peak performance even with unstable AC power.

At the heart of every DRM Series loudspeaker, is Mackie’s Advanced Impulse DSP module. Precision crossovers, transducer time-alignment, and carefully tuned FIR filters overcome inherent physical attributes that can contribute to poor sound, especially at high SPL.

"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 on the back panel for quick setup. Full-range models offer 3-band parametric EQ, venue specific voicing modes, alignment delay, user presets, and system lock, while the subwoofer features a variable crossover, cardioid mode, and more.

Custom high-sensitivity woofers and titanium diaphragm compression drivers housed in braced plywood cabinets are designed for consistent performance, while the DRM Series is also equipped with M10 flypoints, dual angle pole mounts, and available line array configurations. Both the DRM212 and DRM215 feature angled cabinet designs to allow for use as floor monitors.Every DRM Series model is available as a passive version.
