Mackie Designs added an ultra-compact 2-way powered loudspeaker into its successful HD Series – the HD1221 high-definition powered loudspeaker – at the 2010 InfoComm show.
Built upon the same design as its larger counterparts, the HD1221 delivers 1,200 watts of peak system power via efficient Class-D amplifier technology. Its asymmetrical design also makes it a good option as a stage monitor.
“We designed the HD1221 to give our customers Mackie’s premium high-definition, high-output sound in a lightweight, ultra-portable and versatile package,” said Ben Olswang, Mackie brand product manager. “A compact loudspeaker has never performed better.”
The 12-inch neodymium woofer is matched with the 1.75-inch heat-treated titanium compression driver that is fitted into a custom-designed, user-rotatable 90 x 50-degree horn by Martin Audio.
Three user-selectable voicing modes allow the user to easily adjust the loudspeaker’s tone for the application at hand.
The rugged all-wood cabinet is pole-mountable, stackable, flyable and delivers the perfect angle for use as a stage monitor.
The HD1221 will be available worldwide August, 2010, and will have a U.S. MSRP of $999.99.
