I got these Mackie Thump15 1000W to replace a pair of JBL Eon 515's. These Mackies are better in all aspects. They have a much bigger sound , much louder , everything ! These are ,with out a doubt, the best bang for the buck in their category. I run two bands and a one-man band with synths and drum modules. These Mackies do the job very well. My other bigger system is a full QSC set up with K12s & KW181s . With these Mackies, I will seldom have to use my big system except in the really larger venues. Big,loud, clear sound. I am very pleased and I have already recommended these to my friends.

Ordered these based on great experience with Mackie mixers over the years. The Alto Truesonic 2 models I wanted were out of stock, so I tried these.

First, they look pretty good. Cabinets are lightweight, and the green power light is a nice touch. That's about where the good ends, IMO.

First off, Mackie really missed the ball when they passed on a Ground Lift switch. Certain buildings have enough electrical issues that 60 cycle hum can be a real annoyance. A ground lift should be a no-brainer on any powered speaker.

Second, the separate eq controls on the speakers are more of a hinderance than a help. Even at "flat" settings, there is way too much mid-bass and the highs are nearly painful... even with eq flat on the board. Bass is not at all what I expected. When you call something "Thump," you expect there to be a ready supply of great bass. Well, these speakers have the oddest sounding bass I've ever experienced. Speakers bottom out very easily, and distort... even a lower volumes.

Third, these speakers are supposed to be rated at 1000 watts, but their lack of presence and response makes them sound much less powerful. Even with the volume dimed on them, the sound is only moderately loud when pushed.

The Altos that I have owned blow these away. These are going back, and I'll wait on the new Truesonics to come in.

    Comments about Mackie Thump15 1000W 15 Powered Loudspeaker:

    I purchased these speakers to upgrade our sound for bluegrass band to use in small venues. I purchased them based on price/value to power output AND the good reputation that Mackie has had in the past. We used them once with no problem. At that point I was very pleased with the purchase. We store and transported these speakers in a padded and cushioned ATA rolling case. We handle our equipment with extreme care to get maximum life and performance from the equipment. At the second gig that we were going to use them. One speaker would not power on. It was dead. The other speaker had a terrible buzz. We were able to determine that it was coming from inside the speaker-like something rattling. I am taking them in using the Mackie warranty. Let's see if Mackie stands behind their product. I am very disappointed at this point.

      Comments about Mackie Thump15 1000W 15 Powered Loudspeaker:

      Last fall when i first reviewed the Mackie thump 15, I gave it a pretty good rating. Now after using these speakers for about 10 gigs, I'm pretty disappointed. I am now getting a bad popping, crackling sound out of one of the woofers. These speaker have not been abused or pushed too hard where the clipping light would stay on(occasionally flash). Hopefully Mackie will take care of this issue .

      Comments about Mackie Thump15 1000W 15 Powered Loudspeaker:

      Very good speaker.. not good for a heavy range of sounds ie. Trap music as it overheats and breaks very quickly even at a modest sound level.
      For average use it seems to do all right but I still am sketched out at the durability of it.

      Great bass and sound until it overheats tho!

          WOW!Im sure glad I bought these speakers. This gives our traveling gospel group the BIG sound we need for congregations (from small to large churches). The highs are crystal clear and the lows rumble the pews with no problem. These are also lightweight. We used a Yamaha Stagepas before this system and these 15"s weight the same as the 10"s in the stagepass. You cant go wrong with this gear. This is for the progessional musician who is serious about their sound.

            Thump is the correct discription for this speaker. It will rattle your windows. It does a great job without weighing a ton. It does not have difficult functions and has easy to use inputs.

            I bought a pair of the Mackie thump 15s and one of the woofers was blown within 9 months. I used the speakers once or twice a month for mobile dj gigs. The speaker was not abused but began making a popping, cracking noise after about 9 months of use. The speaker was under warranty, but Mackie won't help you out. Instead they send you to an authorized repair shop. (May not be in the city you live in). My issue was resolved after several trips to the repair shop, but how long will the speakers last now?
