I purchased this amp brand new and, after about 5 months, the amp started shutting down and the red 'Over Load' lights would come on. It would then reboot itself. It would work fine until it got warm again, but do the same thing over and over again. I called Mackie and had no problem or issues with them. After explaining my experience, they sent me out a brand new unit and I had it within 2 days!. I understand that somethimes stuff happens, but I am happy overall because they took care of me properly and with the utmost courtesy and professionalism. I will now think of them first and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them in the future.

I have bought a Tapco (Mackie) 1400 watt power amp new -- driving Peavey PR15 speakers also new. Embarassingly it shut down intermittantly. I returned it and exchanged for a Mackie FR1400 - same thing. This is not overdriven - running 55-65% of power on both channels and no peaking on the board. This has happened in 4 different locations - so unclean power isn't the issue. I am tired of finishing shows on my powered monitors only.

Overheating cure

By Sidewinder-XfMXO

from Georgia

Comments about Mackie FR 1400 2-Channel Stereo Power Amplifier:

If you use this amp you probably have it housed in an skb case. The problem is the cooling tunnel needs to be kept clear. This is for the out ports on the sides of the amp as well. Since there is only like 1/2" on the sides for the air to get out I cut holes in the side of my skb case about 3" by 4" & riveted heavy screen over it, you can feel the hot air coming out the sides nicely.

Best Darn Amp Around!

By MusicMan-S9K2X

from Portland, OR

Comments about Mackie FR 1400 2-Channel Stereo Power Amplifier:

I bought the 800wt version of this amp to run my two Mackie S215 speakers. These amps are the best around. I would never trade it for any other brand. Mackie ROCKS!!!!

too hot out of the box

By Blutarsky3

from Mobile, AL

Comments about Mackie FR 1400 2-Channel Stereo Power Amplifier:

Has a nice full sound, and neat features. I bought this amp because it was reasonably priced and I have always trusted the Mackie name...until now. It overheated one hour into its first gig while only pushing vocals and harmonica through two PR12s..not only that, it was only turned up half way! It cut on and off through out the entire gig. Thank goodness I had a back-up. Took it back the next day.

These FR1400 amps really sound good! Just make sure that you use an external blower fan with it to keep it cool.

Mine runs all night long

Comments about Mackie FR 1400 2-Channel Stereo Power Amplifier:

I've been using one for 3 months in both 2 channel mode & bridged mode with no problems. Thing keeps going for 5+ hours a night. Good clean power, simple controls, easy to set up. I couldn't be happier than I am with this amp. When I trade in my powered mixer for a full-featured mixer, I will be buying a couple more of these.

Completley embarrased!

Comments about Mackie FR 1400 2-Channel Stereo Power Amplifier:

I bought this to power 2 sub cabs for my dj system and the amp gets hot and continually shuts down after about 3 hours of use. After placing 2 house fans on the front and back of the amp all was fine. This amp has completely embarrassed me on several occasions. Will not ever trust this again, not even with a replacement. Will spend the extra money for a crown! Have several friends with the same experience with this amp!

Not Reliable Enough

Comments about Mackie FR 1400 2-Channel Stereo Power Amplifier:

I have an fr 1400 that I have finally found a use for, a door stop. These things overheat and shut down at the drop of a hat. May be ok for using around the house, but I would not use it live. Not to mention these things are way heavy.

Works great until it gets hot

By Jim

Comments about Mackie FR 1400 2-Channel Stereo Power Amplifier:

Have had this for about a year. It needs additional air flow to keep from overheating. Otherwise it works great. I will look for a better designed cooling system in an amp when it comes time to replace or add on.
