      I bought ONE Mackie SRM1801 about 6 or 8 months ago to use with my own band. So far, I have only been able to use it once. PLENTY of punch from kick drum. Good support for bass guitar for the multipurpose room we were playing. (250 people at a college alumni reception in another state, no one under the age of 40) We play blues, Motown, classic blues, a little funk. The one sub handled my band nicely.

      Then, around Dec 1, I had a "new church" client rent my "small system" which included the single SRM1801, a pair of JBL Eon315 for mains and four Mackie TH12A monitors. The agreement was that the client "keeps" the system at their facility until their contract is up. The contract is for 12 months.

      The client LOVES the system and are very glad I "made" them take the subwoofer. They were convinced it was not necessary...but after using it, they understood the impact it makes on their music. Rich, warm, "full" sounding. And light enough that they can pack it away. (Their facility is the multipurpose room, cafeteria-auditorium with stage, at the local Junior High.)

      KEEP IN MIND, all tools are intended for certain applications. I own JBL PRX618S-XLF for my larger system and use those subs at multiple events requiring hard driving low end or long throw and large audience coverage. I would not use the SRM1801 (even if I owned a pair) for those types of events. But, in the world of "small venue, budget priced, active subwoofers", the SRM1801 has served my client and I well.

      One works fine for 350 people in a worship service. One worked very well for supporting the low end of my band at that one "college alumni" event.

      Mated with the Eon315 mains (around 300 Watts) and the Mackie TH12A monitors (200 Watts) these SRM1801 fit nicely. If you happen to have an active crossover, you will appreciate the more focused low frequency reproduction.

      Nice tool. Use it for the size events it was intended. If you do, then you will probably be happy. I am.

      Granted, some (many? most?) "new" models on the market have some difficulty when they first reach the real world. The SRM1801 has been on the market long enough that I am comfortable with the one I have.

      My current plan is to purchase a second in the near future.

      It looks so good but maybe that's the problem, you know, "to good to be true". I've used it twice and looking to sell it, it can't be trusted. It begins to clip as soon as it gets warm (not even very warm. Right where you need it, there it goes and you're waiting for it to just shut down, (like a lot of the reviews talk about). I own a large amount of Mackie equipment, the early stuff and let me tell you, never have I had the scare with any of it that I got from this sub when this thing started doin it's own thing. What happened to this company, I thought I might be interested in the DLM Series (2 subs n 4 12" tops) but right now, nobody has them to audition them and none of the stores I go to do any promoting on Mackie equipment like they did when I purchased my stuff. C'mon Mackie, get it right again, you got my e-mail, do something for the consumer before we all abandon you!

      Comments about Mackie SRM1801 18" 1000W Powered Subwoofer:

      Used this sub in a SMALL bar for a year with no problem(own 2 and switched out most times). Then started using them in place of my heavier mobile subs... One died in the middle of a mid-sized gig, the other two months later. I WAS a big fan of mackie. I own SRM450's, have owned mackie mixers and amps. LOVED THEM...THIS SUB...NOT! Then Mackie tried to put blame on me. After I talked to them about the first one going(which they will not repair and i had to pay 70 to have thier repair tech from cascio music look at) I ran the second one EXACTLY how they reccomended...1400 down the drain!!! Cant depend on them and thats how I make my money. DO NOT BUY THESE!!!!

          I was disappointed to receive my "Stupid Deal of the Day" purchase. Upon my arrival home, although the package was clearly marked that it weighed over 70 lbs., the box was torn and the sub was improperly packaged for shipment. There was no packing material to support the sub from shifting about and that was the cause for it's return; the sub was damaged due to it shifting around in the box. Although the price was right, I will not purchase a "Deal of the Day" unless it is new and properly packaged for shipment. To add insult to injury, I was not credited for the shipping charges!

          This is the second of these that I purchased recently at a good price . The first one worked so well that it was natural to get another one when the offer arose . I daisy-chained this speaker with the first one being careful to match the phasing and settings . The results were awesome and I remain very satisfied with these speakers . In the future I can either use them together or with seperate systems as needed .
          The supplied connections and controls make these amplified speakers versitile for numerous different audio uses . Do note the weight which shows the robust construction yet can be a reason for caution if carrying these upstairs or in confined areas . These speakers are a great value at the sale price .

          Floor shaking bass with dependability . Built in amplifier is well matched and simplifies installation . Sound is great and fully adjustable . Rugged construcion makes breakage unlikely . Only drawback is the weight which can be expected with a heavy duty speaker . This is a great buy if you catch it on a sales promotion !

            Worst Sub Ever

            By FreeReign

            from Denver, CO

            Comments about Mackie SRM1801 18" 1000W Powered Subwoofer:

            Don't buy this sub.
            Easy to use. The built in crossover is a nice feature, but no feature is worth anything if the product fails again and again.
            We bought this sub 14 months ago and it failed on us 3 times. We bought a 3 year warranty and the first 2 times it went out were due to two seperate power amp issues that were covered by the manufacturer's warranty. The third time the sub went out was just a couple weeks ago and the warranty company said it wasn't worth the cost to ship it back since these subs have known problems. Anyway, we got a gift card for the full purchase price. Probably going to buy a QSC Ksub. If you buy the Mackie Sub... Good luck!
            You get what you pay for.

            Versatile Value

            from in a house

            Comments about Mackie SRM1801 18" 1000W Powered Subwoofer:

            These are a no-brainer. I run two per side for my sound company Black Tie Sound. The design gets you into the small-footprint system with the big-cabinet coverage. Balance output with gains, hook-up quick with internal crossover. Use an outboard crossover to control. Look nice, tremendously versatile. I gave a 9 only because the cab is fixed at 125hz high-pass. But....much over 125 and you'd run into trouble anyway so........

            As a sound company using these the only problem I have is making people realize you don't need Woodstock cabinets these days to cover some good size events.
            Simple is good.
            Solid, no significant energy transfer through cabinet.
            I see no better deal, quality of build, watt.

            Comments about Mackie SRM1801 18" 1000W Powered Subwoofer:

            This is a good sounding sub but in the end it's garbage because it doesn't last for anything.
            Not really anything bad to say about the features it was pretty plain and straight forward.
            Great sound, when it works.
            My band bought one of these and had to return it within the first month because it just died.
            Our replacement lasted a little less than a year (In that time we only used it for about 7 or 8 gigs) and died, this sub is garbage made with cheap components. There are dozens of postings about how this thing died on people after only using it a few times.
            If this thing lasted it would be worth it but as it stands this isn't worth a dime.

            Comments about Mackie SRM1801 18" 1000W Powered Subwoofer:

            I had a large gig this weekend...using two of these a crossover and some Yamaha mains...the soundsystem far exceeded my expectations. I think using a crossover is key with any sub, and last weekends gig had nice crisp bass. My band opened for some Country stars who played with just acoustics and their voices....the sound was just fantastic. I have only used them twice so far, but I would highly recomend them.
            Decent features...not overly heavy and have plenty of power!
            Only had 2 gigs...so far so good.
            I've used a number of subs over the years...for the price I paid, on sale, these are just really great subs.
