Overview

The lightweight Mackie Thump TH-15A Active Speaker delivers deep low-end and real power in an extremely portable package. Designed by the same team that produced the best-selling Mackie SRM450v2, the active TH-15A offers Class D Fast Recovery amplification that pushes 400W of power to the high-frequency compression driver and the bass-pounding 15" woofer.

The Thump TH15A also has Mackie active processing, including a precision crossover, and driver time-alignment, which provides total optimization for maximum system efficiency. Versatile by design, the Mackie TH-15A is equipped with a user-adjustable 3-band EQ for tone control. Since it can be pole-mounted or used as a wedge, the Mackie Thump TH-15A represents the best value available for a complete stage speaker setup.

More than Just a Powered Speaker Cabinet
The TH-15A has 2 built-in power amps”300W for the 15" woofer and 100W for the high-frequency compression driver. Mackie's Class D Fast Recovery low-frequency amp drives the woofer more efficiently with less heat byproduct than other speakers. Also Mackie Active technology (based on the popular SRMv2 Series) divides the frequencies via a precision 2-way crossover and also time aligns the signals so low-frequency and high-frequency signals arrive in sync to every member of your audience. Active compression provides a first line of defense for the drivers and thermal circuitry protects the amplifiers and power supply should things get too hot. All the onboard electronic systems work together dynamically to produce superior quality sound previously unavailable in this price range.

Portability Meets Versatility
Not only is the Mackie TH-15A a superb PA enclosure, it also makes a superior monitor wedge”just lay the cabinet on its side and turn it up. The compact, lightweight design means zero strain, whether mounting it on a high pole or loading up the van. The TH-15A speaker's wide frequency response makes it ideal as a keyboard, vocal, or even bass guitar monitor. The Thump has incredibly smooth response and dispersion over a wide range of frequencies, so you can crank it without the fear of earsplitting feedback.

Exceptional Sonic Performance
TH-15A powered loudspeakers put out a tremendous amount of sound for their size and price tag. The two-way ported design generates ample quantities of chest-pounding bass, and its 1" compression driver ensures smooth, wide dispersion. Mackie inserted a 3-band equalizer at the input to give you all the tonal control you could ever want, with an available 15dB boost or cut at 80Hz (low shelf), 100Hz to 8kHz (sweepable mids) and 12kHz (high shelf). With the Mackie TH-15A speaker's extremely versatile EQ, you can add some extra thump to that kick drum, bring out the sizzle in your hi-hats, add pop to vocals, or correct acoustic anomalies in the room.

Protecting Your Investment
Mackie added some extra circuitry to keep the Thump TH-15A speaker's performing at its best, even when pushed really hard for long periods of time. Each driver has its own transparent compression circuit, which helps protect them from damaging transient peaks. An over-excursion filter, inserted just before the low-frequency amplifier, protects the woofer from bottoming-out when the low end is driven to the maximum. This means you can hit them hard without fear of thermal damage. Things can get pretty hot in the real world, so if the electronics do overheat, separate thermal switches activate and shut down the high- and/or low- frequency amplifiers until they cool down. These extra protections ensure long life and great-sounding loudspeakers you can always count on.

When I first took the speaker out of the box it was the first time that I had seen it, as there was no display at the store. I had only seen and read about it on the net. I only hooked 1 of the speakers up and ran my DR-880 thru it and wow what a sound. The name Thump is correct. My old PV speakers do not even come close to the sound of these Mackie Thumps. The sound is great, and the bass that it puts out is out of this world clean and crisp. I would recomend this speaker to anyone anyone.

Got my first brand new th-15a and it didnt work at all. Couldnt get any sound out of it and had to take it back. The one that did work sounds good except when its at a low volume or its a part of the song that doesnt have alot going on, you can hear a fizz. But it does have alot of bass so if your a dj and cant afford a sub like me this is the best way to go.

Awesome!

By Russ D.

from Minnetonka, MN

Comments about Mackie Thump TH-15A 15" Active Loudspeaker:

I bought these while on sale because I am getting back into being a mobile dj after about 5 years off. These speakers are just awesome. Very good sound with a lot of power. I haven't had to use the built in equalizer, but like that it's an added feature. they have very good bass response and are pretty light for a 15" speaker. I can't wait to do my first show with these puppies!!

Great Speakers but there's One Thing...

By Barry

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Mackie Thump TH-15A 15" Active Loudspeaker:

Normally I do not write reviews but there is no truly accurate reviews and nothing to determine what you will get from this speaker from short term and long term. I work in audio system design so I will try not put use a lot of technical terms that no one understand except audiophiles. First off, these speakers produce some of the best low end sound of any active single 15in speaker, in any price range point blank period. For this reason alone it is well worth the "small investment" comparatively speaking. You can run these all night at high volume and not worry about overheating loss of sound quality or anything...on the low end. Warning... your high end WILL go out eventually I promise you that. There is no doubt about this! But it is easily replaceable with high end driver that is more suitable for this speaker. After you have replaced it you have a nearly perfect speaker for a price that is unbeatable. I have installed these in many clubs, lounges, and churches. To avoids problems I just replace the high end 1in driver (which is less than 40 bucks) straight out the box, install them in the location with the correct additional subs or speakers and I have had nothing but fantastic feedback from the owners.

Get more than you pay for

By rockwizard

Comments about Mackie Thump TH-15A 15" Active Loudspeaker:

These cabinets are perfect for the budget minded DJ.I got them for the weight and price only, after I did the in-store test. Little did I know how good they would actually sound when I got them home. The trick to loosing the hum, is to use a good mixer. I noticed a big difference when I switched them from my numark mixer and tried them with my Pioneer mixer. I got a lot more bass, headroom and little to no hum/ distortion. THESE THINGS HIT!! Thats coming from the owner of QSC HPR152i.

Outstanding speaker for an amazing price!!!!

By DJ Tonic

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Mackie Thump TH-15A 15" Active Loudspeaker:

I have been a DJ for 16 years and have done everything from a small karaoke venue to large dance clubs. I have used many different types of passive speakers in the past and most recently I was using peavey setup. I decided to make the switch to an active powered speaker to hope to limit my weight of my current setup and hoped that I could match the sound. So after months of testing at my local guitar center I tryed a pair of these Mackie Thumps. I was really impressed with the sound and how clean and crisp the highs and lows were. I mean lows these things really do thump. Once a got them home and hooked them into my mixer wow it was even more amazing. Then after my first show I was even more impressed. I got so many complements from everyone about how amazing they sound. If anyone wants a great speaker no matter if you new to being a DJ or have been at as many years has myself. Try these out you will not be disappointed.

Can't beat them for the price.iused them at a reception hall for about 120 people and they did their job,crystal clear and clean hard hitting bass plus they lookedgood on that tri pod. They are loud but I would recommend gettin an extra one if you have more people than this or u have a really big hall.got 2 play at a lounge next week can't wait to shake the spot with the thumps.definately worth the money

AWESOME speaker

By Tommy Thompson

from Punta Gorda

Comments about Mackie Thump TH-15A 15" Active Loudspeaker:

After reading reviews I decided I would give these a shot and I'm glad I did. Mackie did a good job with these. The price seemed to good to be true, but don't let that fool you. I am a mobile DJ and play everything from oldies to current hip hop/rap. These speakers really do thump. The only complaint I have is that Mackie didn't insulate the woofer ring and air escapes through the edge...so it makes some noise when pushing bass through it. I took 5 minutes and 5 dollars and bought some weather stripping. Pulled the speaker put that around the edge...problem solved. I run these with a powered sub and my sound has never been better.

Good Speaker

By Murdog

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Mackie Thump TH-15A 15" Active Loudspeaker:

I finally did a gig with this speaker--playing my roland v-drums through it, as a near-field monitor. The band told me that it made my kit sound like a totaly new kit, and added new presence in the stage mix. I know reviews on the street seems to be mixed at best. But, for me, this speaker rocks.
