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

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.

Sonny D

By Robert Dickey

from Lexington SC

Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

there are lots of features on this speaker I like . The EQ is just great for sax playing and the send thru is another great feature
this is my third purchase of this Mackie 150 power monitor and while I love them they do not seem to last very long without needing repairs of some kind or another. It seems the electronic boards that control the volume just are not heavy duty enough to take the 6 nights a week wear and tear. They are great while they work but they do not stand well up under pressure. I just purchased my third one today so I have one that works and will be sending the older one offf again for no volume control again. I wish there was something better out there to replace this but I do not know one.

Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

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.

      Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

      After about the 5th use, it stopped working. I had to ship to a Mackie Service Center, and it's been there since (going on three months because of parts backorder). It's been in the shop longer than in my possession, so not happy about that at all. I purchased the Behringer for work, and have borrowed for live bar band performances. Main thing is, it's still working! Also, it has more headroom and sounds just as good as the Mackie did. I hate to say it, but if you need a near-field monitor, buy the Behringer.

      I babied this product , using it only indoor . I would make sure not to give it too much volume in order not to clip that unit, but without warning it just stopped working, it was never abused. It turns on but no sound comes out, I took it to get serviced to a place mackie referred me to on feb 6 ,2013 but the part that is faulty is on back order through mackie until April . It's unacceptable if you use it to make a living with. Look at behringer instead.

      Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

      I use it for home bass guitar practice. I have an Alesis SR-16 drum machine, a cd/mp3 stereo input and vocal mic plugged into it. I have my bass plugged into my bass rig, so I don't use it for the guitar. It has surprisingly good sound for it's small size and more than enough volume for my needs. I use Monster connections for all my inputs. I am very happy with it. The phantom power is a huge plus. I use a separate mic stand for the vocal mic to have more distance from the unit. This is home practice heaven with a very small footprint! I couldn't be happier.

      Versatile Powered Speaker with Integral Mixer and Phantom Power

      By Utility Player

      from Kansas City

      See all my reviews

      Ask me a question

      Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

      I work in corporate, church and band settings and always keep my eye out for a toaster-sized powered speaker that can be mounted on a tripod stand, thrown in a case and accommodates mic or line level inputs. For years, the Anchor AN-1000X dominated that niche, but didn't have mixing or phantom power, and looping to another speaker using XLR cable got messy.

      Mackie gets points for developing the SRM-150, which meets all the above needs, and creates a new function of stand mounting for the vocalist. I purchased 10 of these units for a half-dozen classrooms, and they have performed well to amplify PCs with an option to amplify speech. I like the EQ, phantom power, daisy-chaining XLR connection, along with multiple XLR, 1/4" phone and RCA inputs.

      Rapco-Horizon LTIBLOX adapters are used for connecting PCs to the mixer-speaker input, and Ultimate Support Tour-T-Tall mic stand to elevate the unit about 6-7 feet. The fixed tilt angle of the speaker is a little strange, but can be tolerated.

      A winner!

      I bought this unit last year and it has stopped working on stage three times. The power supply has been the culprit twice and I'm about to take it for repairs for a third time. It works well in a club for vocal monitoring, but I can't rely on it.

      If It Fits Your Need

      from NW Ohio

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Mackie SRM150 Active Speaker (Black):

      Having read the other reviews, I this Mackie product isn't being fairly rated. I don't own this monitor yet, but I will soon. Our band was recently booked into a smaller staged venue than typical. As a drummer, I normally use a larger full range monitor with both vocals and a light instrument mix. We play with a higher stage volume than I prefer so I need a heavy monitor. A friend owns one of these and loaned it to me. The band had toi settle for a sidewash set-up. I was amazed at the quality and volume this little thing provided. It is clean clear and loud enough when on a stand 3' - 4' from your head. If you are looking for thunder bass you don't understand what it is designed to do. It does that very very well and is awesome in quality just as all of Mackie's products. Sure you can buy better sounding monitors for the same or a little less money but they are not nearly as handy. I sincerely believe that 2 of these with a guitar and vocals would handle a small coffee house venue.
