JimboSpins's review"Best in this price range"

Mackie SRM1801
The SRM1801 is a powered sub woofer that puts out 1000 watts of booming low end sound. It is very portable and light weight. Every since this sub has been added to one of our set ups our low end sound has become very clean, even when pumped up to max levels. This is the perfect bass woofer for smaller venues and clubs. I do not recommend using it in a bigger space or an outdoor space because I don’t feel like it sounds as good.
We originally purchased this back in 2010 and have used it probably over 30 times now for smaller clubs and venues. This sub has a low frequency filter and it also has a high pass filter that will let you run it to your main amplifier without the need to have an extra crossover. For the money this will be the best sub woofer that you can purchase. Mackie has many great subs but most of them cost a good amount of money so I was actually surprised to see them come out with a woofer that was affordable for anyone and still had a great sound with amazing features.
Another thing that surprised me with this woofer is how light it is, I did not expect it to be anywhere close to as light as it is. I have no problem getting this in and out of the storage unit and to shows via our van. The frequency response is 50Hz to 115 Hz. This 18 inch woofer is well worth the money, and out of all of my years being a DJ, sound engineer and “roadie” I have not heard many other woofers that can compete with the sound of the Mackie SRM1801 (in this price range). This woofer is a must have for any DJ who needs to add some boom for their sets.

Eric S.'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good sound, but not reliable"

Mackie SRM1801
How long have you use it?

- Pair purchased in May 2011

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

- Some other models, but nothing very correct (Behringer)

What is the particular feature you like best and least?

- Plus: Good build quality, good bass, nice finish.
- Minimum: may I stumbled onto a series of m ..... But it's still three times that I see a box! The first exchanged with a new one, the second, they try to fix it in vain!

How would you rate the quality / price?

- For my part, ZERO! Too bad, because they sound good (when they work), but are not reliable!

With experience, you do again this choice? .

- NO, I would take the Yamaha box.

Mackie SRM1801
We use a pair of SRM-1801 for about a year. We decided to ettendre down the frequency response of the RCF ART-315 in order to establish a system of small and medium power portable facillement (power from 1200 to 1700W, depending on whether one or two subs with the heads cut encombement) .

Personally, I like the roundness of the bass it delivers. The fact that HP is in direct radiation gives an impact that I have not found a box type "band-pass".

The only complaints I would make is that the volume knob is not resolved at delas of + /-6dB. During our first test benefits the entire system, we used the internal filters in order to connect the head and, despite vain attempts balancing sub / mid-high thanks to the knobs, we never got the sound we wanted. So we invested in a digital processor DBX DriveRack PX-to do everything back to normal and now our little meveille all works! But this criticism is to be taken back because, at the base, the sub is made to work with heads Mackie SRM probably very consistent in this configuration ...

So to summarize, I recommend it for anyone looking to extend their heads down Mackie active but for others, I sincerely believe that a processor upstream will be the only way to do it well and sing to calm low volume ! Otherwise, for about € 1200 a pair, the investment is excellent and, after a good twenty outputs, it shows no signs of wear or fatigue!
