Mackie has introduced the DLM Series, a new line of ultra-compact, powered loudspeakers with 2,000 watts of onboard Class-D power, as well as proprietary Mackie TruSource technology and a full-featured integrated digital mixer/processor.

The series includes two full-range models (DLM8, DLM12) along with a high-output compact subwoofer (DLM12S).

“With DLM you are seeing Mackie’s commitment to delivering groundbreaking technology,” states John Boudreau, Mackie senior vice president. “Yes. It’s amazing that DLM speakers are a third smaller than anything in their class. But it’s the unmatched power, processing and fidelity that really sets DLM apart from everything else on the market.”

Mackie’s TruSource driver incorporates a high-output woofer and 1.75-inch compression driver into a compact common-magnet design, optimized with TruSource DSP to deliver clarity, consistent dispersion and high fidelity.

Both the DLM8 and DLM12 are outfitted with the Mackie DL2 integrated digital mixer, providing a dual-channel mixing solution for a wide array of possible connections with channel features like 3-band EQ and 16 effects.

In addition, system processing such as a multi-band feedback destroyer, six loudspeaker modes, and Smart Protect technology provide the tools needed for professional applications.

The ultra-compact form factor of the DLM8 and DLM12 includes a rugged PC-ABS cabinet, powder-coated grille and integrated kickstand for personal monitor use. Also included is an integrated pole-cup plus additional configuration options that include wall mounting and flying for professional installs.
