The DLM Series
Mackie's DLM Series powered loudspeakers deliver premium-quality sound from a compact, portable package. If you want to get maximum performance from a system that takes up minimal space, these Mackie speakers should be on your shopping list.
The heart of the powerful DLM8 powered speaker is Mackie's TruSource™ driver, which combines a 8" woofer and a 1.75" compression driver in one vertically-aligned, common-magnet speaker. This design eliminates the interference between the highs and lows that occurs with traditional 2-way speakers, so you hear exceptionally smooth, focused sound.
An ultra-efficient Class D amp delivers up to 2,000 watts to the driver giving you some serious headroom, while the TruSource digital signal processor keeps everything clear and consistent across the entire frequency range. And you get all this in a super-compact speaker enclosure that weighs only 22 pounds.
Integrated digital mixer
This powerful 2-way speaker also includes an integrated Mackie DL2 digital mixer, which gives you two input channels with an impressive list of audio tools. Independent channel level, a 3-band EQ and 16 great-sounding effects (including reverb, chorus and delay) give you plenty of control over your sound, while a bright OLED screen makes it easy to make adjustments in the darkest venues. And, if you visit the same venue often, you'll appreciate the instant recall feature, which allows you to call up the mix from your last appearance there with the touch of a button.
Small speakers, big possibilities
The DLM8's compact design makes it an ideal speaker for a touring solo artist or small combo. Even if you expand your system to include a Mackie DLM12 speaker and a DLM12S subwoofer or two, you'll still be able to fit the entire setup into most cars.
You don't have to treat them like boxes of fine china, either. The rugged, roadworthy PC-ABS cabinet is tough enough for travel, and the ergonomic top carry handle makes loading and carrying the speaker much easier. A powder-coated, 20-gauge steel grille protects the woofer from harm, plus it just looks cool.
These go-anywhere speakers can be installed, well, just about anywhere. You can pole-mount the DLM8 on a tripod or atop your DLM12S sub using the SPM300 speaker pole (sold separately). You can also wall-mount them with the SWM300 articulated arm (also sold separately) or fly them from the ceiling with standard M10 rigging hardware (ditto). If you're using your speaker as a monitor, the integrated kickstand keeps it at the perfect angle. If you're not using your speakers for anything at the moment, the stackable design makes storage easy.
