[Musikmesse] Mackie HD1501 & 1801
The HD1501 and HD1801 subs are designed to offer the same benefits as the top boxes, including Class-D Fast-Recovery amplifier technology, delivering up to 1600W of peak power, according to the company.
They feature a custom transducer design and system tuning by EAW. The company says that HD1501 and HD1801 benefit from 15-inch and 18-inch woofers respectively, as well as Mackie's active electronics.
The HD1801 18-inch subwoofer is designed for use with either the HD1521 or HD1531, and the HD1501 15-inch sub is designed for systems using SRM450v2 Active Loudspeakers (or SRM350v2s).
