Our take on the Mackie Thump12

by Bob Bihlmayer
Mackie

How loud do powered PA speakers play?

If you're considering powered speakers, you might be tempted to compare wattage ratings, but those won't be very helpful to you: these self-contained systems are engineered to precisely match their built-in amps with their speakers in order to get the most output possible. We suggest you pay more attention to the listed sound pressure level (SPL) ratings than the listed wattage ratings. These boxes are all designed to play loud and clear in appropriately matched room sizes. Generally, powered PA speakers work best in small to medium venues, like nightclubs, coffeehouses, and small auditoriums. If you're performing in larger venues, you'll probably need separate power amps and speakers.

An affordable and portable powered speaker

Mackie's Thump12 powered speaker offers offers serious performance with a reasonable price tag. The Thump12 uses a 400-watt RMS amp to power its 12" woofer and a separate 100-watt amp to drive the 1" tweeter, while the built-in equalizer, time alignment, and crossover circuitry elicits maximum performance from the two drivers. To make sure you can't overdo it, Mackie incorporates a subsonic filter to protect against woofer over-excursion, a thermal shutdown and reset circuit, and independent compressors for the high- and low-frequency amps so you don't push your drivers over the limit.

Connect and control

The XLR input accepts the signal from your mixer output, or allows you to directly connect a microphone for a lecture or presentation. The XLR "Thru" output lets you daisy-chain additional Thump12 speakers for larger events. Mackie also includes a single level control for microphone and line level signals. You can also shape your sound with the included 3-band equalizer with its sweepable midrange control.

Versatile applications

The Thump12 's tough polypropylene cabinet includes three handles for portability and a 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 even lets you use it as a floor monitor in a live performance. And whatever your application, the Thump12 continues Mackie's tradition of high performance, making it easy for you to get your Thump on.
