The Mackie XR824s Active Studio Monitors are a pair of 8’’ reference-grade studio monitors featuring a 1’’ black snoozed aluminium tweeter for improved harmonics in the upper range and an 8’’ Kevlar woofer for fast transient recovery, producing an accurate and extended low frequency response. The XR824s utilise a logarithmic waveguide that delivers acoustic alignment for a flatter and balanced sound across all frequency bands. The XR logarithmic waveguide works by matching the high-frequency dispersion pattern of the woofer, resulting in a seamless midrange transition for the perfect balance. The 160W bi-amplified Class-D Amplification spreads the amplification for both high and low frequency bands with 100W dedicated to the low frequency drivers and 60W for the high frequency drivers.
Mackie have introduced a unique way to boost the low frequency response by developing and integrating the ELP Bass Reflex System. The ELP Bass Reflex System builds on the design of traditional bass ports, opting for an internally curved design with a zero-turbulence, elliptical exit on the rear of the monitors for an extended low frequency response. This unique design allows you to hear the depth in your bass response, while eliminating the air noise that you may incur with typical bass reflex ports.
The Mackie XR824s include a specially designed internal bracing that adds stiffness to the monitors for reduced distortion and enhanced clarity. You can also optimise your monitors for your mixing environment, enabling the best sound for your space. The adaptable controls include: Acoustic Space – allows you to change your overall response to match most configurations, HF Filter – helps match the monitors to your room and LF Filter – rolls off the bottom-end to simulate smaller desktop speakers (ideal for checking how your mixdowns will sound on different systems). The monitors themselves features a black wood grain finish for the classic studio feel and come complete with custom acoustic isolation pad to reduce unwanted resonance and improve the overall bass response.
