Overview

The Mackie Thump TH-15A delivers deep low end and real power in a lightweight portable 2-way powered loudspeaker. Designed by the same team that produced the best-selling Mackie SRM450v2, the TH-15A speaker features a user-adjustable 3-band EQ. The Thump loudspeaker's Class-D Fast Recovery amplification pushes 400W of power to the high-frequency compression driver and bass-pounding 15" woofer. Mackie Active processing, including a precision crossover and driver time-alignment, provide total optimization for maximum system efficiency. Versatile by design, the Mackie Thump Loudspeaker is equallly functional polemounted or used as a wedge.

More than Just a Powered Speaker Cabinet
The Mackie 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 by-product than other speakers. But so much more goes into a Mackie loudspeaker design than just amplifiers. 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 Thump 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 Mackie TH-15A loudspeaker'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 ear-splitting feedback.

Exceptional Sonic Performance
Mackie Thump 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. We even 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'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
Because you demand the most from your speakers, Mackie added some extra circuitry to keep your TH-15As performing at their 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 that the Mackie Thump TH-15A loudspeakers offer long life and great sound you can always count on.

Great for small events

By TC

from Waterbury, CT

The rating is in comparison to other powered speakers in this price range. Don't compare these to QSCs, other Mackies, or even JBL Eons. Those are in a different class... PROS: The price is fantastic. Overall sound is good. They are extremely portable and lightweight. The frequency repsonse is what sold me. You get some impressive lows and they rarely bottom out. They are linkable and have a built in crossover. Plus the built in compressor and sound processing are nice features... CONS: They're just not as loud as I had hoped and the OL (red) light is pretty much always on any time you need some volume (even with the level setting even). I've ran them for hours with the light on to see what would happen and it never clipped, but it's still nerve racking. Basically the "Level" nob on the back of the speaker should just stop at the halfway point... COMPARISON: If you're comparing these to the Beringer 215Ds, it comes down to what you are looking for. The Behringers are louder in general, but provide less low end (hip hop type) bass. The Behringers would be more appropriate for use with a sub. These aren't as loud, but are a more clear and they hit lows the Behringers won't even recognize. Great starter set of speakers, 2nd set, or for use in smaller venues. Overall I'm happy with these.

Love my Thumps

By Fast Eddie

from Westland, Mi.

After a lot of careful thought and checking out other top brands that are much more expensive these are with no doubt the best bang for the buck! I bought two of these to use as monitors and back-up mains in case heaven forbid, anything should happen to my Mackie active 3212's! A lot of thought was put into the design for ease of handling, stacking and versatility! They look great and with 15' woofer's don't take up much room. They are very light and easy to carry to gigs! They sound absolutely awesome.. would love to have two more to finish my monitor mix!

Great Sound for the Price

By DJ P

from Bakersfield, CA

Just picked up a pair of these to replace my Behringer 215As and used them at a house party. The speakers sounded much cleaner than the Behringers and definitely had better low end for hip hop bass. They do run pretty hot when you touch the back of the speaker and I could smell the burn in of the electronics, something I never experienced with the Behringers. Not a concern now, hope these hold up long term. In summary, these sound better and are lighter than the Behringers. If you want to get the Tapco version of this speaker, they are identical except for cosmetics and are much cheaper.

Clear Highs, and Thunderous Lows!

By DJ Cleveland

from Chicago, IL

These speakers are one of the greatest investments I've ever made. I am a karaoke dj, dj, and vdj. These speakers can handle anything I throw at them. I got great quality, with a small amount of money to burn. That's HOT!! If you purchase these speakers, you're definetly in for a treat! And the crowd (up to about 350) will love you!

Crisp and CLear

By Vincent

from United States

I used the Makie Thump for a gig the other night in a bar where there are acousticv issues. These solved the problem. I am a big fan!
