All of the previous reviews are absolutely true! Try them out at your nearest music store. I first heard these speakers at a gas station along a very noisy/busy highway. With my window rolled down, the DJ was cranking them at a nominal level to a point where I could hear the highs, mids, & and almost ?feel? the bass projected all the way out to the highway from inside my car! So I turned around, pulled into the gas station, & asked the DJ, "Where's the sub?". Surprisingly, he was only using a pair of SRM450's on tripod stands raised to 6 feet high ? dat?s it! I?ve been using these speakers + an SWA1801 sub as a drum monitor (electronic & acoustic), keyboard monitor, FOH mains, home stereo replacement speakers in conjunction with a Mackie1202 mixer. It?s the last speaker you?ll ever need. With all the built in electronics, you?ve a built-in soundman in the speakers, Plug?n?Play and worry free! Sell your old speakers and BUY SRM450?s NOW!!

We have been using these mackies for our blues band for over 5 years.The original Mackie dealers have sold to a bigger company and maybe they will figure out how to make their self powered speaker design last through a couple of years of one night gigs in bars where the cabs have to be moved in and out and then stored. I noticed all of the comments on this product were from musicians who have the system in their church where it never gets moved. But my band plays alot of one nighters and the mackie cabs have not been able to hang in there.We have had quite a few problems with getting them repaired as well as having to use our monitors as mains, and having no monitor for ourselves at a show when several of these incidents have occurred.The Mackie system costs too much to keep a spare on hand for when this happens.Great sound quality but they have a way to go before I would suggest that a working musician rely on it.

Music at a whole new level!

By soundman

from san jose, ca

These powered monitors take your music to the next level of listening. They have excellent sonic response and projection. Highs are crisp, lows are tight, but not muddy. Plus, they last very long and are very reliable. I've used mine every week for five years, and it still performs like the day I bought it!

Will King

By My review

from Dawsonville, Ga

Been using the Mackie powered speaker for 4 years now for our church youth group. We play in a 4,000 sq ft room, crank em less than half way, and they still make you deaf. They produce amazing sound, especially with a Mackie powered sub, are easy to set up, and kick like crazy. I hate to use anything else. Very good speaker.

No Problems Here

By The Morons Band

from R.I.

We have been using these speakers for four years now. They take a lickin and keep on kickin. We have never had one problem and we play out every weekend. We had the JBLs before these and had nothing but problems. We mix these with the SWA15 sub and been able to cover any venue that we do. Nothing to big but any local clubs in your area. Highly Recommend.

Plain and simple,,, THE BEST

By DJ Slim-eez Mobile DJ Service

from Kalamazoo Michigan

I have used my set on the road often and abuse them alot. Never seen them clip yet and have tried too. I have used them in a high school gym along with a 1501 sub and sounds awesome, also used them in small venues such as back yards without the sub and they sound amazing. People tell me all the time about the great sound I have. I would never recommend the other best selling speaker to ANYONE. Mackie is the way to go if you want great highs, lows, and the in betweens. I would never think twice about the other brands. Spend the money you won't regret it.

Best speakers for me

By Mackie SRM450

from BATON ROUGE, LA

I have been using the Mackie SRM450's for two years now, almost every weekend. I also bought the some cheap cases at first, but then ordered the Mackie bags and they are great. I would recommend these speakers to anyone. I am a vocalist with keyboards and guitar. I hardly adjust the EQ. I am TOTALLY pleased!

Best monitor for value

By Worship Leader

This monitor is great it can handle the high power of rockn' roll and has the clarity to sound a symphony and not lose any of the instruments

As good as it gets

By TheKloonge12

from Dayton, OH

What else is there to say, Mackie is as good as it gets. Wonderful quality. It is prefect for live gigs or even using it as an accoustic amp with a mixer. Great product to get. The sound quality is unsurpassed.

Great for live music

By mackiemania

from San Jose, CA

This monitor handles live music extremely well. It projects sound further into the crowd than some others I have used. The bass and treble are amazingly clear. The cabinet is easy to transport and setup, making it a very versatile monitor!

Good Live Monitor

By seekg

from Farmington Hills, MI

I use two of these as monitors when I play for a large group (50+) in a large space. These monitors give a very clear and separated sound even at high volumes. However, I find that I have to EQ the treble down on my mixer in order for the highs to not be overpowing. This isn't a big deal, and I think it's just the way Mackie makes their gear, because I've encountered the same thing with other mackie products. When compared to house passive monitors, which frequently are muddy sounding and inconsistent, the Mackies blow them away. These are my go to live monitor.

Great speaker, "ehh" price

By lifestyle

from san francisco, Ca

These a Great speakers. The base is what i like the best, but sometimes you can hear the fizzing sound if you have a really good ear. But thats just me. Anyways, these speakers are made by Mackie. Enough said. But if you want to go into details, these speakers are strong. If you turn it up at the right volume where you won't bust your eardrums, but still can hear the fine tune, a tune sounds better than if you play without this set or with any other set. The options on the EQ is not very surprising, but it's workable. I always carry a spare set when my band go out. But its just precautionary. These are really reliable speakers and after 5 years, I have only gone through one set. So right not I'm using the second one I bought, and another backup. We love these speakers.

Great speakers, clear sound

By Joel

from Eugene, OR

I've used both these and JBL Eon's, and honestly they're pretty similar, so you can't go wrong either way. I'd say the JBL's sound a bit better when they're cranked, but if you're not playing them quite as loud, I like the sound of the Mackie's more. I'd think these would make better monitors, practice speakers or stage fills than the JBL's would.

Happiness

By WillMattJim&Pedro

from Harriman State Park, NY

Sending a 57 directly into it and miking the srm450 (for band practice recording), I've been getting excellent results; Everybody can hear my aphonic muttering now, and clear across Lake Tiorati the cars come by to see who it is ruining nature. I love the speakers, they are loud and true to the sound sent through them. Bad: No combo jack like srm350 has Good: everything else

They Can take a beating

By Jeff Landry

from Houston

I run a small dj company and one of the djs took a short cut to place these speakers at an event. Half way though the event the speakers fell of the 2 floor of the venue. I ran over to see what had been done to my speakers but they were fine. They sound even better than the day I bought them now.
