Achieving the 'mastered sound' while keeping a wide dynamic range
The Mackie SWA2801z combines dual 18-inch drivers, a built-in 800-Watt FR Series power amplifier, and Mackie's trademark Active onboard electronics to achieve greater levels of performance and output that mere "powered" subwoofers.
Specifically designed to outperform traditional 2 x 18-inch systems, the Mackie SWA2801z benefits from Mackie's award-winning Active electronics, which provide much greater integration of all components in the system than traditional "powered" loudspeakers. Mackie Active electronics are customized for each driver/cabinet/amplifier combination and provide complete, real-time control over critical functions such as crossover filters, equalization, as well as protection for both transducer and electronics. Active electronics also allow for flawless integration with full-range loudspeakers, which can be stacked or pole-mounted - whether the SWA2801z is positioned vertically or horizontally.
XLR connections on the back of the SWA2801z provide stereo input, Loop-Through and High Pass outputs, while a Subwoofer Level control allows the user to easily blend the SWA2801z with its full-range counterparts. Carrying handles are built into each side of the robust enclosure and allow for easy loading. Heavy-duty casters are attached for smooth transport.
The Mackie SWA2801z, which is the perfect compliment to Mackie's recently expanded SA and SR Series Active full-range loudspeakers, is currently shipping to authorized Mackie Active dealers throughout the United States. The subwoofer carries a suggested retail price of $2299.99.
