Holy Bejesus

By Poppa D

from Atlantic County, New Jersey

the Mackie FR2500 hooked it up and as soon as we played our first song we were all picking our jaws from the floor! The power this thing puts out is nothing short of amazing. Loved it so much I went and bought another AND the FR800 to run our monitors. Why so much power, we play about 10 outdoor shows a year and we want everyone to hear us! And they do. Great buy I would recommend them to any and every one!

Awesome, clean, powerful

By Geren

from Columbia, MD

Clean and powerful. I just ran a 3 hour concert with one of these, pushing two full-range cabs on each side. I had the amps turned up about 75%, and I could still make it far too loud in the room, which was a small (150 seat) theater. At the end of the gig, the amp had been powered up for a total of about six hours, and ran for a sound-check/rehearsal, as well as the show. It wasn't even warm! The only negative is that, even though Mackie claims you can run as low as 2 ohms per side, the amp really doesn't want to do it.

By DJdisco

I recently bought two of these FR-2500 Mackie amps and they are worth every penny. I swapped my older QSC MX1500a amps (325/channel @ 8 Ohms), and these Mackies far outperform the QSCs by 2.5 times. You can't get better sound for the money; this is every DJs dream amp; it simply rocks and it shows time after time again. I've been a DJ since 1984 and I simply play at home now; however, that doesn't stop me from buying great equipment, after all, music is endless. I was skeptical at first, but then I went for the FR-2500 and I haven't had any regrets, except not having changed earlier..... TO ALL DJs - BUY THESE AMPS! THEY MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOUND PERFORMANCE, VALUE AND OVERALL COST. THIS IS A VERY WELL KEPT SECRET - LET'S SHARE IN THE WEALTH. I strongly recommend the FR-2500 for any sound reenforcement project. The lows sound awesome and the highs are crips and clean.... Jose Alfonso :)

The Mighty Mackie!

By Deathwish Entertainment

from Houston, TX

I just purchased this amp and man was it worth it. I am a mobile DJ and I don't need to carry 3-4 amps to a gig. I use the Mackie 2500 for the 2 tops and run my self-powerd sub through my Rane TTM56. So, far it gets the job done. I would recommend this amp to anybody.

Bang Worth Your Buck!

By Butch Chowski

from California

Recently bought this amplifier to run 2 JBL MRX528 Dual 18" Subwoofers. And let me tell you, this amp powers these subs to their full potential. The Amp itself is very user friendly, the settings on the back panel are very easy to locate and switch on and off unlike other amplifiers. The design is very solid and simple, and not just that, this amp rarely clips (with clip meters on) when it is ran is bridged mode. Great buy and would definately recommend to anyone.


You Can Trust The Mackie Name!

By Pastor C

from Phoenix, AZ

I just bought the Mackie FR 2500 2-Channel Power Amp, and it is great! I am using it to power my subwoofer in my church sound system! Great buy! Great Quality! I wish it had extra in and out's!




from Peoria, AZ

I bought this amp to power 2 yamaha s115v loudspeakers which are rated 500 rms @ 8 ohms each, Ive powered these babies for more than 4 to 5 hours without this amp even gettin close to warm. It gives a very crisp clean sound for these speakers, gonna buy another one for another pair as well, Mackie rocks!!


3 years going, going & going

By Dj AL"Musique Solilel" Huerta

from South Gate Ca.

I purchased a Fr 2500 3 years ago and gig at least six times a month. With the revival of Disco music in Los Angeles the crowds want it loud. The amp has never let me down even in an outdoor summer event, stays kool to the touch. I am going to buy one of the newer and lighter FRS models only 22 lbs. Thanks Mackie for building them like a tank! Dj AL "Musique Soliel"
