Mackie SRM450 : MGR/Dave's user review
"Mackie SRM 450"
These speakers are powered, which eliminates the need for a powered mixer. (I just use a small non-powered mixer to mix the keyboards). They are also reasonably lightweight, being housed in plastic, compared with most of the plywood-housed PA speakers on the market.
The sound is totally overrated, in my opinion. The high end is decent and fairly clear. However the low end severely lacks power and sounds harsh in comparison with other similarly priced units. I am really disappointed with these and will either have to add a subwoofer to get adequate low end, or will have to sell them and buy speakers with 15" woofers instead.
Plastic housing, seems to be fairly resistant to dings and scratches.
Way overpriced and overrated. You will need to add a subwoofer to get what you really want out of these speakers.
