Efficient speaker design

Mackie built these speakers to look and sound great, with vibration-resistant all-wood cabinets. 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

As of September 2019, 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.

Features

Built-In Bluetooth 3.0: The CR4BT features music streaming via Bluetooth 3.0. Just pair your smartphone, tablet, or other Bluetooth enabled device and instantly stream music.

Two-Way Speaker Design: Each Mackie CR4BT multimedia monitor speaker features a two-way driver design with one 0.75" ferrofluid-cooled, silk-dome tweeter and one 4" polypropylene-coated woofer with rubber sound. This combination of premium drivers provides a rich and natural studio-quality sound.

Built-in Amplifier: All drivers are powered by a built-in 28W RMS/50W Peak Class AB amplifier which provides clean, articulate stereo sound and an ultra-wide frequency response of 70Hz to 20,000Hz.

Bass Reflex MDF Enclosure:  The CR4BT multimedia monitor speakers employ a bass reflex enclosure with custom-tuned rear-firing ports for smooth, even bass extension. These all-wood MDF cabinets provide a natural sonic character superior to low-grade plastic designs. The CR4BT speakers do not included grilles.

Convenient Controls: A convenient front-panel volume knob with lit power-ring give you On/Off/Volume control and power indication. There is a rear-panel speaker placement switch which lets you choose which side of your desk gets the speaker with the volume knob.

Balanced & Unbalanced Analog Inputs: The CR4BT multimedia speakers give you a choice of analog inputs including stereo 1/4" TRS jacks (balanced or unbalanced) and stereo RCA jacks (unbalanced) on the back panel, plus a 3.5mm aux input (unbalanced) on the front-panel. A stereo minijack cable and a stereo minijack-to-RCA cable are included.

Speaker Cable: Because the amplifier is built into only one of the CR4BT multimedia monitor speakers, you'll need to connected the included 6' speaker cable between the two loudspeakers rear-panel spring-clip terminals.

Headphone Jack: A dedicated front-panel headphone jack (3.5mm) provides the opportunity to quickly listen to a different source, which is great for any professional. Plugging in phones defeats the speakers for truly silent work and you can quickly adjust levels with the main volume knob.

Isolation Pads: The two included professional-grade isolation pads minimize unwanted bass buildup and allow you to tilt the monitors up or down a bit for more focused listening.

Q
can i plug an audia tecnica LP 60X into these spkrs? which audio input ?

A
Yes, you can plug your turntable into these speakers. The stereo output cables on your LP60X are compatible with the RCA inputs on the back of the powered speaker. Set the pre-amplifier selector switch on the back of your turntable to the LINE position and you should be good to go. I use these speakers in the living room of a somewhat small condominium and have been very pleased with the sound quality.

You'll need a phono preamp. You'd plug the turntable into the preamp and then plug the output into the RCA jacks on the Mackie. Contact the advisors at Crutchfield. They're super knowledgable and can help you get what you need!

Q
Can this be wall mounted ?
[ Mahesh  May 22, 2019 ]

A
There are no mounts. Also there are ports on the back which of covered would affect the sound.
[ George  May 22, 2019 ]
A
Build or buy shelves. Mount the shelves on the walls and put the speakers on top of them. Duh!
[ Jeff  May 22, 2019 ]
A
There isn't any type of integrated mounting hardware or attachment points on the rear of the speakers, so you'd need to find some type of universal clamp mount to attach them to a wall.
