I bought a pair of these in late August, attracted by the low price and the promise of big sound. Mackie did not fail. I have used these speakers at multiple events I have DJ'd, both indoors and outdoors. They have a crisp sound and with the promised excellent bass. The fact that they're lightweight and easy to carry is a bonus. I am in the process of ordering more. Couldn't be happier!

I play keyboards and use(d) this as a live rig in small venues, or as a monitor in larger spaces.
EQ went south after 6 months.
A year later: set up for a gig -- powered up but no sound. Cables are fine, etc. Luckily sound guy had an extra monitor. Yeah I gig with it a lot but it always travels protected. The speaker on my iPhone lasted longer than this . . . even after dropping it in the sink doing dishes one night.

Anyway, from my experience this is a poorly built piece of equipment. Don't have too many complaints on the sound quality when it was working though.

    Comments about Mackie Thump12 1000W 12 Powered Loudspeaker:

    I play keyboard in a funk band, a classic rock band, and a church band. I had been running my keyboard through my Shure IEM's without running an amp. There were times that I really wanted to have some ambient sound to compete with the guitars and drums. This did the trick.

    I am running a Nord Stage 88. I simply connected the Thump to the earphone jack. The first time I used it was NYE. I played on a large stage, with at times, 4 guitars, a bass player, 2 drummers, 3 pieces of brass.

    The Thump exceeded my expectations! I had to actually turn the thing down!

        used 3 times but sat in the closet long enough for warranty to expire.
        now that I google for a fix I see many with the same problem.

          Picked this up to use with my Roland e-drum kit. I run thru our PA system, most of the time, but also use it 'stand-alone'... has pretty good power & low end.

          • Poor Sound Quality

          Best Uses

            Comments about Mackie Thump12 1000W 12 Powered Loudspeaker:

            Ordered these based on great experience with Mackie mixers over the years. The Alto Truesonic 2 models I wanted were out of stock, so I tried these to use as monitors with the Thump 15" models that I ordered for mains.

            First, they look pretty good. Cabinets are lightweight, and the green power light is a nice touch. That's about where the good ends, IMO.

            First off, Mackie really missed the ball when they passed on a Ground Lift switch. Certain buildings have enough electrical issues that 60 cycle hum can be a real annoyance. A ground lift should be a no-brainer on any powered speaker.

            Second, the separate eq controls on the speakers are more of a hinderance than a help. Even at "flat" settings, there is way too much mid-bass and the highs are nearly painful... even with eq flat on the board. Bass is not at all what I expected. When you call something "Thump," you expect there to be a ready supply of great bass. Well, these speakers have the oddest sounding bass I've ever experienced. Speakers bottom out very easily, and distort... even a lower volumes.

            Third, these speakers are supposed to be rated at 1000 watts, but their lack of presence and response makes them sound much less powerful. Even with the volume dimed on them, the sound is only moderately loud when pushed.

            The Altos that I have owned blow these away. These are going back, and I'll wait on the new Truesonics to come in.

              Comments about Mackie Thump12 1000W 12 Powered Loudspeaker:

              I'm an old school musician and studio owner for 30 years now. I know what good sounds like and quality looks like.
              These speakers are surprisingly good sounding compared to anything near their price range. I went through quite a lot of them before I decided these were the best compromise. In order to find anything that sounds as clear and still balanced and music as these you need to pretty much double and a half the price of these. They are lightweight too which is something I am appreciating more and more these days.
              They claim to be 1000W but to be fair, they sound like about 500 watt to me when put next to other 500w speakers to compare.
              Most powered monitors tend to be tinny, midrange heavy or bass heavy and not balanced. That IS the case with these. These tend to be bass heavy but it is easy to roll off bass and not lose the musicality of they sound. It is very hard to fix mids and highs so if you have to pick a devil, this is the best case.
              If you are a small acoustic group, solo artist that plays acoustic guitar than you'll love these. That is what I bought them for. If you are a hard rock band or DJ you'll like these but probably want to still by a subwoofer because even though they are bass heavy they don't produce enough bass to drive a dance bottom end like most clubs want.
              Either way they are extremely good for the price and now they look like they are 100 cheaper than when I bought them.

                  Bought these to use for stage monitors and use for rehearsals with just vocals going through them. Very powerful and clean sounding. The sound quality on these exceeded my expectations. For a small lightweight speaker these things just pound. I wouldn't be afraid to even use these as mains on small events on top of a pair of subs. You won't be disappointed with these speakers at all. For the price they can't be beat!!!!
