Mackie Introduces New Lightweight Power Amplifiers— the FRS-1300, FRS-1700, and the FRS-2800.
The FRS Series features Mackie's Fast Recovery™ circuitry. Mackie says that new high-current switching power supplies make them super-efficient and ultra-lightweight. They also say that "Built-like-a-tank" construction and Mackie reliability mean the FRS amps will withstand the rigors of the road.
The FRS Series include a high-resolution, 6 segment LED meter per channel, defeatable clip limiter, subsonic filter, and on-board protection circuitry (short, under-impedance, over-current and thermal). The FRS Series includes 3 models: the FRS-1300, FRS-1700 and FRS-2800 with rated output of 1300W, 1660W and 2800W respectively @ 4 Ohms bridged. The FRS Series will be €499 and have an MSRP of $519.99 for the FRS-1300, €599 and $649.99 for the FRS-1700 and €699 and $769.99 for the FRS-2800. The entire series is now available domestically and will be available internationally in Q2 2008.
