Mackie's TH-12A powered speaker offers a big stage sound without the big money. This budget-friendly Thump Series speaker includes one 300-watt amp for the 12" woofer and a 100-watt amp for the 1" tweeter. The included equalizer, time alignment, and crossover circuitry work hand-in-hand to help the amps' power output to elicit maximum peformance from the two drivers. And to make sure you don't overdo it, Mackie incorporates a sub-sonic filter to eliminate over-excursion, a thermal shutdown and reset circuit, and independent high- and low-filter compressors so you don't push your drivers over the limit.
Connect and control
The back panel of the TH-12A includes the one XLR input for your mixer output, or you can directly connect a microphone for a lecture or presentation. The XLR "Thru" output lets you daisy-chain additional TH-12A speakers for larger events. Mackie also includes a single microphone and line level control. Shape your sound with the included 3-band contour equalizer, or switch it off and let the speaker play the signal coming from the mixer.
The TH-12A's tough polypropylene cabinet includes three handles for portability and a weather-resistant perforated metal grille to protect the speaker. Using the included pole insert, you can mount this Thump speaker on a tripod stand or on a speaker pole mounted over a powered sub. Its angled design also lets you use it as a floor monitor in a live performance.
