Multipurpose active monitoring accuracy.

The first active Mackie studio monitor with a D'Appolito woofer-tweeter-woofer design. It has one 6.7" woofer on each end of the cabinet with the dome tweeter in the center. The monitor can be set up vertically or horizontally, depending on the application.

The 2-way biamplified monitor implements servo-feedback circuitry and an elliptical passive radiator to achieve low distortion and extended low-frequency response similar to the HR824. The waveguide-loaded high-frequency aluminum dome tweeter provides the same crisp and evenly dispersed highs as all of Mackie's world-class reference monitors. The 5/8" internally braced MDF cabinet is extremely rigid and non-resonant.

The HR626 is the ideal monitor for those who need lots of bottom end, along with the low-level accuracy of the midrange for mixing and vocal placement. Thanks to its D'Appolito driver alignment design, the HR626 can be used in both vertical and horizontal positions. Placing the HR626 in a vertical position provides extremely accurate reference monitoring for mid- to large-sized studios. Because of its symmetrical left-right sound field, it can also be placed horizontally and used as a superior center channel in a 5.1 or 7.1 surround monitoring or home theater system.

The D'Appolito driver alignment design provides direct-center alignment of high frequencies in center channel applications and can be set up vertically or horizontally, dependent upon the application. The HR626 also features the D'Appolito crossover for proper phase response.

Active Electronics
True reference monitoring due to the flat frequency response provided by the active EQ, crossovers, time correction and phase alignment

No outboard amplification required

Elliptical Passive Radiator delivers:
Extended low frequency response
Elliptical geometry makes the most of the cabinet dimensions

Servo Feedback Circuit:
Lowers the distortion in low frequency range
Extends the low frequency response of the woofers
Provides tighter mechanical control of the woofers

Waveguide-loaded aluminum dome tweeter
The tweeter provides the same high-end clarity expected in a Mackie HR monitor
The waveguide ensures the high frequencies will be evenly dispersed with the lows
The die-cast waveguide looks fabulous, babe!

In another hastily-edited review of this product, I mistakenly said, "the ONLY way you would use these horizontally would be in a long narrow mixing environment." That is true when using two of these for stereo mixing of music material. I was not considering using a single speaker as the center channel in a 5.1 set-up. In that case, the D'Appolito design would be ideal, so long as it is not near a reflective surface, such as a mixing desk. The dispersion characteristics of D'Appolito arrays assure secure centering when placed horizontally. However, in that application, care must be taken to avoid early reflections from hard horizontal surfaces: above a desk or near a hard floor.In a living room environment, with the speaker placed high above a carpeted floor, it would be fine as a single center-channel loudspeaker.My apologies to Mr. D'Appolito, Mackie engineers... and anyone else I confused by my statements in the previous review. My intention was to inform potential users that this loudspeaker is superb for stereo imaging when you cooperate with its dispersion characteristics by placing it vertically. Placing TWO of them horizontally is bad for stereo imaging across a wide sound-field, and causes mid-bass phase problems. I didn't want anyone to blame these fine speakers if they did not know that and set them up improperly.


Use vertically!

I won't discuss the high quality of these wonderful speakers, except to say they are truly superb!You MUST be aware though, the D'Apollito array will cause phase / time problems if they are used horizontally. They MUST be used vertically to get the beneficial dispersion characteristics of the D'Apollito design and to avoid phase de-correlation. It IS POSSIBLE to use them horizontally, however, it is VERY difficult and you will greatly restrict the ideal listening position. The only reason you would ever use a D'Appolito array horizontally would be if you mix alone in a tube, like a long narrow mobile-truck. Place them vertically and you will hear the sweet miracle that this design creates. Numerous clients in the control room can ALL hear a reasonable stereo image without peculiar low-mid artifacts. They can stand or sit almost anywhere within the sound-field and get an accurate mix. However, if you lay them down horizontally on a shelf above your mixing desk, you will be in for an acoustical nightmare. Even if you can adjust them for that orientation, only one or two listeners will be able to hear them properly.Please ignore the mistaken information that says, "Can be used vertically or horizontally." If you place them vertically, you are in for a treat. Place them laying down, and you will wonder why they cost so much.
