Overview

The Mackie SRM150 Compact Active PA Speaker is ideal for a wide variety of applications ranging from boardroom A/V to live musical performance in coffee houses, piano bars, rehearsals, and more. The SRM150 speaker combines Mackie's proven mixer and SRM Active loudspeaker technologies to create a powerful 3-channel PA system that is ultracompact, versatile, expandable, affordable-and sounds good too.

Don't be fooled by the small size. The SRM150 is big both on features and sound quality. The built-in 3-channel mixer offers 2 combo XLR/line inputs-with true 48V phantom power-a stereo channel for CD/MP3 players, and Mackie's powerful 3-band Active EQ. The SRM150 speaker can even be mounted on a mic stand, making it an excellent personal audio monitor.

Built-In Mackie Mixer
At the very heart of the SRM150 is a Mackie mixer, with all the versatility and features Mackie is known for. Channels 1 and 2 can be used for mic/line sources, thanks to the handy Neutrik combo jack, which accepts either 1/4" TRS or XLR connections. True 48V phantom power is supplied, so you can use even the most finicky condenser mics with confidence.

Channel 1 also has an added feature. Simply plug in your guitar, bass (or any other Hi-Z instrument), press the CH1 Instrument switch and you get all the benefits of a DI box, without any hassle or added expense.

Dedicated Stereo Inputs
The Mackie SRM150 monitor's Channel 3 is reserved for stereo devices, such as an MP3, CD, or tape player. Just connect to the dual RCA jacks from your device and use the Channel 3 Level control to balance the gain with your other inputs. This is a truly handy feature for performers working with backing tracks, MIDI sequencers, or drum machines.

Glorious Mackie 3-Band EQ
Mackie invested tremendous resources optimizing the center frequencies of their 3-band active EQs. By selecting 100Hz, 2.5kHz, and 12kHz for the lows, mids, and highs respectively, they created an equalization scheme of a highly musical nature. SRM150's EQ bands work very independently of each other, allowing you to cut or boost a specific band without affecting the others. With up to 15dB boost/cut capability per band, the onboard active EQ provides plenty of tone-sculpting latitude and feedback control.

High Output, Premium Quality Sound
The Mackie SRM150 PA speaker's powerful 150-watt Class-D amplifier with an equally impressive 5.25" full range, has a weather-resistant neodymium driver, which was developed by the speaker gurus at EAW. The SRM150 puts out a blistering 120dB SPL @ 1 meter, far more than the competition offers. The SRM150 sounds great, whether you're accompanying a vocalist with your acoustic at the coffee house or making an A/V presentation to the board of directors.

The Ultimate Personal Monitor
Not only is the Mackie SRM150 an excellent loudspeaker system for compact PA applications, but it also works well as a personal monitor. The onboard 3-band EQ facilitates feedback suppression and offers the same great tone-shaping capabilities as other legendary Mackie compact mixers. Mic stand ready with an included boom arm adapter, the SRM150 puts total control right at your fingertips. In addition to standmounting, the SRM150 was designed to provide the proper monitoring angle when used in traditional floor wedge and tabletop placement.

Rear Patchbay
Want to use a second SRM150 or an SRM450? The rear panel Thru jack provides connectivity for an extra powered monitor, or for sending a mic level output to the front of house system (by activating the mic/line switch). The Main input also has a dual purpose. It can obviously be used to receive monitor mixer signals, but can also be used to link more SRMs.

Applications Galore
Uses for the Mackie SRM150 are virtually limitless. Below is a short list of some obvious, as well as not-so-obvious applications:
¢Compact, portable performance PA system
¢Executive boardrooms
¢A/V presentations
¢Tradeshow demonstration booths
¢Classroom instruction
¢Aerobics instructors
¢Live music performance monitors
¢Personal practice with stereo tracks
¢PA system expansion for "Cry" or "Green" rooms
¢Recording studio playback to remote rooms

So I went to Guitar Center last night to test out the Mackie SRM150 and the Behringer Eurolive B205D spot monitors ( mic stand style). I had read pretty good reviews about the B205 with and a couple even specifically lashed out against the Mackie?s. I went to Kirkland because they specifically had the B205?s in stock. I put both monitors through a side by side test with a) an Ipod, B) Guitar, C) vocal, D) Guitar and vocals combined The first thing worth noting is that the overall tone and sound you get from a spot monitor is certainly NOTHING like you get from a 12? speaker. As a general rule, very thin tone comparatively. Having said that, I think the 3 band eq in both units makes a HUGE difference. Both speakers came alive with richer tones when the low and mid EQ were increased. Unfortunately for the B205d, that is where the rubber meets the road as far as I was concerned. With the low end EQ turned up, the B205d speaker could not handle the thud and was cracking and popping whereby the Mackie continued to deliver smooth low end tone even with the low eq maxed out. Additionally, when I play acoustic I sometimes ?slap? near the sound hole or strings. At higher volume and with the low eq up, the B205?s picked up everything with it?s overdriven snap, crackle, and pop. Not so much on the Mackie. I think the internal speaker on the Mackie is slightly larger than the B205, and if that?s what made the difference, then so be it. I suspect it is just better components in the speaker and crossover. Over all 4 tests above, I found the Mackie to create better overall tone and sensitivity over the B205?s. The B205?s may have been slightly louder at lower volumes, but that?s about it. Another interesting note is that they had a display set up with these side by side, but he had to swap out the B205 because the speaker was already blown in the display before we had even started! One more reason to be nervous about the B205's. I suspect at the end of the day, that these types of monitors are just going to be trouble in general if they are overdriven or abused in any way. If handled with care for lighter acoustic shows, they should work fine. I understand that price is an issue, and $75 a unit is quite a difference, but in terms of quality of sound, there is no question the Mackie SRM150 is better.

I bought this speaker new from GC late 2014, early 2015. The thing has been awesome up until about 3 months ago (Sept 2016). The sound is crisp, loud, and cuts through even in a full band setting - it is perfect monitor. It also weighs like 10 pounds, if that, so it really is the perfect monitor! There's already enough heavy stuff to deal with! I never really understood the value of a good monitor until I got this. I used it as a monitor in an acoustic duo setting which was fantastic. And then I moved into a full band setting with drums and bass and it worked there as well. Then, one day (at practice fortunately) it just cut out. The thing I tip my hat to Mackie for is that they include a 3-year warranty. There was a place local here in NJ, and the tech told me the preamps go in them a little too often. Lo and behold, that's what it was. He replaced it and had it back to me next day - awesome service. So I get it back and it is working through 2 practice sessions. We get to gig day, I hook it up and it works for about 30 seconds and now the blue light is fading in and out and there is absolutely no audio. Like a power surge, but I use a power conditioner (Furman) to ensure that kind of stuff doesn't happen. So now it is down again and I'm taking it back again to that awesome company to fix it (seems like a different issue now). But, do you think I can trust this thing live again? Heck no. I have heard wonderful things about the Behringer speaker similar to this one, so I think I'll try that. It is a shame. I'll also be writing Mackie as this speaker is awesome but not being able to hold up (was not abusing or overloading it) under normal (but not very often) usage is just unacceptable.

So, bottom line - great sound from a little speaker - but be very wary.

Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

recently purchased two of these to go along with 2 SRM- 350's. It is nice to have them so close. We use them for vocals, keys and guitar. They work great. Just don't try to drive bass and drums thru them... ain't happening. In the proper application- perfect!

Powerful little Mackies!

By Lu White

from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

This little personal monitor packs a powerful punch! We are an oldies band that sings songs with 3 and 4 part harmonies and honestly - I thought this monitor would not be powerful enough. But the first time we all fired up our Mackie SRM150s, we actually had to turn the volumes down because they were so powerful! The sound is great too. They are also lightweight and portable. When you are lugging around your own PA and backline, you don't need the added burden of lugging giant floor monitors too. The SRM150s perfect no matter what kind of venue we are playing, including the standalone performances in those smaller venues. They are versatile and everyone in my band recommends them a thousand percent!

Perfect for our 2 man show (and then some).

By Skeeter

from Port Orchard, WA

Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

My musical partner in crime and I were looking for a compact system to run acoustic guitars and vocals through. We had considered several acoustic/electric guitar amps with vocal capabilities as well as lugging his Mackie active speakers and Yamaha mixer around. We play mostly small venues, and packing the larger gear didn't appeal to us. While cruising the net one night, he found the SRM150s and imediately called me. We took off to our local GC and asked to try one out. They let us hook up our guitars and play as loud as we liked. The sound was awesome. Just as a comparison, we took our guitars into the acoustic room and played through every acoustic amp they had. The Roland probably sounded better, but at twice the price, it was out of our range. We bought 2 SRM150s and couldn't wait to get them set up and play. Our first tryout was in his garage during a rehearsal/recording session. The recordings were just for practice purposes so quality wasn't a big concern. We used one as a direct input for recording both vocals and guitar, and the other as a monitor for playback. It worked great. We turned out some of the best scratch recordings I have ever done. We use them at our monthly gig at an art gallery open house and people are amazed at the sound quality. I have used mine for my iPod, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, computer, cheap Yamaha keyboard and even to play my Halloween "spooky sounds" CD. For transporting the 150, I used a small roller suitcase. With some fairly firm foam, I built a pocket that the speaker fits into. It takes up 1/2 of the suitcase which leaves enough room for 2 mics and cables, my guitar processer, 2 guitar cables and a small power strip. I can carry everything I need for a gig into the venue in one trip. The fact that this speaker mounts onto a standard mic stand means you don't have to carry a bulky speaker stand. For the price, you can't do any better than the Mackie SRM150. The only improvement I'd like to see would be some on-board effects. A little reverb to warm the sound would be nice.

Mackie SRM150 vs Behringer B205D

By Wayne

from Sylmar, Ca.

Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

First, I am not a musician, I'm a sound guy, but, not a pro-sound guy. So, I look (well, listen) to things differently. I do sound at a church, we own both, the SRM150 and B205D. They're used as personal monitors. As far as a full bass sound, neither will compete with the larger, full range speakers. Both put out plenty of sound for our application (on stage we have full drum kit, bass guitar, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, piano, Roland X6 keyboard, sax, violin, and flute, and typically, a worship leader plus minimum 4 vocalists). We run 7 independent monitor feeds. So, it is not your laid-back, oldie hymn environment. That kinda sets the stage (pun intended). I've done an A-B, side-by-side listening test. Both sound very, very close, with all tone controls at their neutral setting. I have to do this with pre-recorded music...I'm listening for full range sound, vocals plus a variety of instruments, plus, I don't play anything. A guitarist, or any musician, may have personal preference based upon nuances of their particular instrument and playing style. The B205D's struck me as having slightly less background noise. But, neither objectionable in live stage setting. None of the musicians complain about distortion or volume level during rehearsal and actual performance. Personally, I like the B205D sound a smidge better, and I tend to grab it before the Mackie. Each has had a failure. The Mackie was on a mike stand, was bumped, went crashing to the floor and stopped working. No problem with warranty repair. The B205D died during a hot summer day outdoor event where it was in direct sunlight. Again, no problem with warranty repair. Other than that, the Mackie and oldest B205D are, I think 3 years old. Used every weekend. Because of the price and slight personal sound preference, we own a total of 3 B205Ds and just the single Mackie. Finally, I see Guitar Center no longer carries the B205D. I guess, there may actually be a reliability issue...but, that's just a guess.

      Not worth it - Too low or feedback - single speaker does NOT deliver

      By w balerstrini

      from detroit, mi

      Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

      We bought two of these speakers expecting them to work like a Mackie should, but we were greatly disappointed. First of all, the single speaker does NOT deliver the quality of sound needed in a monitor. Secondly, we couldn't get them to work at a dependable volume level. Either they were too quiet, or we got too much feedback. They had to be too close to you to hear them - which became a problem. I suggest you try a personal monitor with a better speaker arrangement. We sold ours and are using Bose outdoor small non-powered speakers running off a powered monitor. Huge difference!

        I just got this little unit to give me better feedback while singing and playing piano in a jazz sextet. I plop it on top of the baby grand right in front of me and turn it a bit when the drummer is singing next to me. I love its sturdy construction, light weight, and full, rich sound output.
