Efficient speaker design

Mackie built these speakers to look and sound great, with vibration-resistant MDF (medium-density fiberboard) cabinets with brushed-metal faceplates. Each features a rear port for extended bass response, and waveguide technology for wider sound dispersion. There's even a handy speaker placement switch that lets lefties put the speaker with the volume control knob where it's most convenient.

Now includes Avid's Pro Tools First DAW — an industry favorite

This Mackie hardware includes powerful Pro Tools First recording software, a highly popular choice among recording artists and producers. It also now comes bundled with Avid's The Music Collection suite of 23 plugin effects. Software is redeemed using your unit's serial number.

Product Research

Features

Overview: Featuring Mackie's signature CR Series sound, the CR3-XBT multimedia speakers are the perfect choice for home studios, content creators, gamers, or as upgrade desktop speakers.

Built-In Bluetooth 4.2: The CR3-XBT features music streaming via Bluetooth 4.2. A convenient front-panel push-button lets easily pair your smartphone, tablet, or other Bluetooth enabled device and instantly stream music.

Two-Way Speaker Design: Each Mackie CR3-XBT multimedia monitor speaker features a two-way driver design with one 0.75" ferrofluid-cooled, silk-dome tweeter and one 3" polypropylene-coated woofer with rubber sound. This combination of premium drivers provides a rich and natural studio-quality sound.

Built-in Amplifier: One CR3-XBT speaker includes a built-in 25W RMS/50W Peak Class D amplifier which powers it along with the passive speaker. The amp can provide clean, articulate stereo sound and an ultra-wide frequency response of 80Hz to 20kHz.

Bass Reflex MDF Enclosure:  The CR3-XBT multimedia monitor speakers employ a bass reflex enclosure with custom-tuned rear-firing ports for smooth, even bass extension. These all-wood MDF cabinets, with vinyl wrap, provide a natural sonic character superior to low-grade plastic designs. The CR3-XBT speakers do not included grilles.

Convenient Controls: A convenient front-panel volume knob gives you easy access to the On/Off/Volume functions, and a rear-panel "master" power switch is also provided. When both controls are On, a ring around the Running Man logo will illuminate white. A rear-panel speaker placement switch (L/R) lets you choose which side of your desk gets the speaker with the volume knob.

Analog Inputs: The CR3-XBT multimedia speakers give you a choice of analog inputs provided on the rear-panel of the powered monitor. Inputs include:

  • Two 1/4" TRS balanced/unbalanced (L/R)
  • Two RCA unbalanced (L/R)

Speaker Cable: Because the amplifier is built into only one of the CR3-XBT multimedia monitor speakers, you'll need to connected the included 6.5' speaker cable between the two loudspeaker's rear-panel spring-clip terminals.

Headphone Jack: A dedicated front-panel headphone jack (3.5mm) is provided. Plugging in headphones defeats the speakers for truly silent work and you can quickly adjust levels with the main volume knob.

Pro Tools First: The Mackie CR3-XBT monitors include the option to download Avid Pro Tools First professional recording software. This powerful DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) lets you create, mix, and produce music and online content. Pro Tools First offers up to 16 tracks of audio recording and editing, along with over 20+ plugins that include EQs, Compressors & Dynamics, Reverbs, Delays, and more.
