Mackie Introduces New Studio Monitors

Mackie has introduced the XR Series, a new line of professional studio monitors comprised of two models — the 8-inch XR824 and 6.5-inch XR624.

Drawing from Mackie HR Series monitors, XR monitors feature a logarithmic waveguide, a high-output 160-watt power amplifier and premium transducers including a Kevlar LF driver.

The monitors also feature Mackie’s new ELP Bass Reflex System which utilizes an extended-length, internally curved port to reportedly improve bass response and output capability.

The XR Series Studio Monitors can be sonically optimized to the specific mix environment, featuring user-controllable acoustic space tuning controls. There are three different acoustic space settings that adjust for monitor placements close to walls and in corners.

Both high- and low-frequency EQ controls are available for final sonic adjustment to the mixing space. Other features include an eco-friendly, auto on/off functionality that senses when a signal is present and turns that monitor on or off. Each monitor also has acoustic isolation pads.

The monitors will be available in November.
