Mackie HD Series

FOH Staff • New Gear • April 7, 2009

The HD1521 2-way and HD1531 3-way deliver up to 1800W of peak system power. precision crossovers, transducer time alignment and phase correction circuitry right in the box, in addition to patented acoustic correction processing that the manufacturer says counters the inherent physical attributes that can make typical loudspeakers sound honky or washed out.

With custom transducer design and system tuning by EAW, 15-inch neodymium woofers are matched with the 1.75-inch heat-treated titanium compression driver. The HD1531 3-way also features a 6-inch midrange driver and Mackie’s WaveFront mid/high horn system. A user-adjustable 3-band EQ with a sweepable mid lets the user EQ the system for the application at hand. The all-wood cabinets feature 12 integral fly-points for horizontal or vertical rigging and both models are pole-mountable. Integrated protection circuitry and robust build quality ensures years of reliable use.

HD Series High-Definition Powered Loudspeakers are expected to be available in the Americas and Asia in June 2009.  The HD1521 will be $1,249.99 MSRP. The HD1531 will be $1,499.99 MSRP.
