The Mackie ShowBox is a revolutionary all-in-one live performance solution made for singers, guitarists and small bands. This portable rig combines a 400-watt amplifier, PA speaker, 6-channel mixer, effects unit and audio interface in one battery-powered device. With the ShowBox, you get studio-quality sound anywhere.

Powerful Sound That Goes the Distance With a 400W Amp

ShowBox pushes up to 12 hours of crisp, clear audio thanks to its built-in 400W amplifier. The custom-designed drivers and advanced DSP provide smooth, even coverage with plenty of headroom. Take this portable PA system anywhere without sacrificing sound quality. Fill small venues, outdoor events, house parties and more with rich, detailed tone. The integrated battery gives you ultimate freedom to roam the stage and get close to the audience.

Intuitive Breakaway Controller Puts You in Control

The ShowBox's breakaway controller attaches right to your mic stand, putting vital functions at your fingertips. Adjust channel levels, add effects, shape EQ - all without taking your hands off your instrument. Store snapshot settings for different parts of your show. The detachable controller slides back into the main unit for easy transport and storage. Everything you need is integrated into one smart design.

Mix and Shape Your Sound With Integrated Effects

The ShowBox frees you from racks of outboard gear with its built-in 6-channel mixer, dual multi-effects engines and feedback destroyer. Use the intuitive breakaway controller to dial in compression and EQ for each channel. Add rich reverbs or crispy delays with the touch of a button. Two dedicated voicing modes optimize your tone for acoustic guitar or vocals.

Get Creative With Amp/PA Modes, FX, Looper

ShowBox goes way beyond a basic PA speaker, with creative tools that help you craft your signature sound. Choose between "PA" and "amp" voicing modes to optimize the tone. Utilize the FX loop to incorporate your favorite stompboxes. Sculpt your tone with the parametric EQ and compressor. Add lush reverb or delay with the dual effects engines. The built-in looper lets you create layered backing tracks on the fly. ShowBox encourages creativity at every turn.

Record, Stream, Play Tracks Via SD, USB-C, Bluetooth

In addition to being an incredible live rig, ShowBox enables recording, streaming and track playback. Plug in an SD card to capture pristine recordings of your shows. Connect to your computer via USB-C to interface with your favorite DAW. Use Bluetooth to mix in backing tracks or playlists. ShowBox is more than just a PA - it's an all-in-one hub for your live performance ecosystem.

Keep The Crowd Rocking With Backup Tracks and Recording

When you connect over Bluetooth, the ShowBox becomes the ultimate backing band, letting you play wireless and use tracks for missing instruments or backing vocals. An SD card slot allows 24-bit/96 kHz recording of your gigs. And you can easily stream performances via USB-C. Whether you want to capture your live sound or extend your range, the ShowBox has you covered.
