OVERVIEW

Designed to top a mic stand or boom.

The Mackie SRM150 Compact Active PA Speaker is ideal for a wide variety of applications ranging from boardroom A/V to live musical performance in coffee houses, piano bars, rehearsals, and more. The SRM150 speaker combines Mackie's proven mixer and SRM Active loudspeaker technologies to create a powerful 3-channel PA system that is ultracompact, versatile, expandable, affordable-and sounds good too.

Don't be fooled by the small size. The SRM150 is big both on features and sound quality. The built-in 3-channel mixer offers 2 combo XLR/line inputs-with true 48V phantom power-a stereo channel for CD/MP3 players, and Mackie's powerful 3-band Active EQ. The SRM150 speaker can even be mounted on a mic stand, making it an excellent personal audio monitor.

Built-In Mackie Mixer
At the very heart of the SRM150 is a Mackie mixer, with all the versatility and features Mackie is known for. Channels 1 and 2 can be used for mic/line sources, thanks to the handy Neutrik combo jack, which accepts either 1/4" TRS or XLR connections. True 48V phantom power is supplied, so you can use even the most finicky condenser mics with confidence.

Channel 1 also has an added feature. Simply plug in your guitar, bass (or any other Hi-Z instrument), press the CH1 Instrument switch and you get all the benefits of a DI box, without any hassle or added expense.

Dedicated Stereo Inputs
The Mackie SRM150 monitor's Channel 3 is reserved for stereo devices, such as an MP3, CD, or tape player. Just connect to the dual RCA jacks from your device and use the Channel 3 Level control to balance the gain with your other inputs. This is a truly handy feature for performers working with backing tracks, MIDI sequencers, or drum machines.

Glorious Mackie 3-Band EQ
Mackie invested tremendous resources optimizing the center frequencies of their 3-band active EQs. By selecting 100Hz, 2.5kHz, and 12kHz for the lows, mids, and highs respectively, they created an equalization scheme of a highly musical nature. SRM150's EQ bands work very independently of each other, allowing you to cut or boost a specific band without affecting the others. With up to 15dB boost/cut capability per band, the onboard active EQ provides plenty of tone-sculpting latitude and feedback control.

High Output, Premium Quality Sound
The Mackie SRM150 PA speaker's powerful 150-watt Class-D amplifier with an equally impressive 5.25" full range, has a weather-resistant neodymium driver, which was developed by the speaker gurus at EAW. The SRM150 puts out a blistering 120dB SPL @ 1 meter, far more than the competition offers. The SRM150 sounds great, whether you're accompanying a vocalist with your acoustic at the coffee house or making an A/V presentation to the board of directors.

The Ultimate Personal Monitor
Not only is the Mackie SRM150 an excellent loudspeaker system for compact PA applications, but it also works well as a personal monitor. The onboard 3-band EQ facilitates feedback suppression and offers the same great tone-shaping capabilities as other legendary Mackie compact mixers. Mic stand ready with an included boom arm adapter, the SRM150 puts total control right at your fingertips. In addition to standmounting, the SRM150 was designed to provide the proper monitoring angle when used in traditional floor wedge and tabletop placement.

Rear Patchbay
Want to use a second SRM150 or an SRM450? The rear panel Thru jack provides connectivity for an extra powered monitor, or for sending a mic level output to the front of house system (by activating the mic/line switch). The Main input also has a dual purpose. It can obviously be used to receive monitor mixer signals, but can also be used to link more SRMs.

Applications Galore
Uses for the Mackie SRM150 are virtually limitless. Below is a short list of some obvious, as well as not-so-obvious applications:
¢Compact, portable performance PA system
¢Executive boardrooms
¢A/V presentations
¢Tradeshow demonstration booths
¢Classroom instruction
¢Aerobics instructors
¢Live music performance monitors
¢Personal practice with stereo tracks
¢PA system expansion for "Cry" or "Green" rooms
¢Recording studio playback to remote rooms
¢Anywhere high quality audio is required but space is limited

Great idea but they missed on one point. If you feed signal into the main in (say monitor feeds) and add vocals through the channel one input. You can not turn off the main feed signal from passing through the THRU port back to the mixer to get the vocals only.
Limits you to either using the box for vocals only or for monitor only.
A switch to kill the main in from passing back out would have been a great addition to this product.
Has good sound for its size but this is for the coffee shop musicians.
Would have been the perfect solution for the bar band vocalist that can never hear what they want to hear in the monitors. But no way of not making a signal loop.

I have owned two of these and each one died after just a handful of uses. The first one suddenly stopped making sound; it powered-up but nothing would come out of the speaker - not even hiss with the volume maxed. The second one just refused to power-up; no blue light, no sound, no nothing. I checked the fuse - all OK there - so its looks like another internal problem. And just out of warranty - again!

Its too bad. The SRM-150 is such a great idea and from the outside it looks so professional and well built... but on the inside there are evidently some real quality/reliability issues with the electronics.

My advice to SRM-150 users and would-be purchasers: never rely on this speaker - and always bring a back-up!

For the record, I am a big fan of Mackie's other products. I am a long-time user of the SRM-350 and SRM-450 speakers and I have never had an issue with either one. I also have a pair of Mackie's FR series monitors in my home studio that I have used almost everyday for 12 years without any problems at all.

      Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

      We've purchased four or five of these for our church over the years. I bought one personally for my own use. They all needed repairs and were out of commission for long periods of time. Ultimately, they all failed or turned into strange random popping beasts or just boxes with glowing blue lights. I don't buy from this once high quality manufacturer anymore. Maybe they've improved them, but I would look for alternatives and not take the risk.

      Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

      Excellent monitor for cafe/restaurant gigs. Didn't do the job in a loud, electric blues setup. The boom attachment is easy to overtighten and gets ceased on the threads.

            Ordered an "open box" unit. Never do that again. Saved money, but not worth the agrivation. Received unit with broken fuse compartment. So had to return it, then but another one on my credit card until return is credited. 2nd unit received and works fine, but there were no instructions, no stand adapter. MF said they would send them.

                Sadly I would not recommend anyone buy this product.

                When it worked, it worked well. Easy to use. However, our unit was only used 6 times over the last 3 years and suddenly it stopped working. Apparently it cannot be repaired. Of course it is just outside of warranty so I am out of luck. I went for the brand name, and was let down.
