JimboSpins's review"They may be better than the EON by JBL"

Mackie SRM450v2
The Mackie SRM450v2 is a 400 watt active live speaker (2 way). It has Class D amplification and it is pretty light/portable. This speaker is pole mountable and floor wedge-able. The main reason that I even came across this speaker was because it was very similar to the JBL EON series of speakers that was actually out before this one. This got recommended to me by a fellow band member once I said that I was thinking about getting rid of my JBL’s because of the weight of them.
After I got my hands on these I realized that the sound was much better than the JBL’s which surprised me because I am a huge JBL fan. But the price was also a little more as well. The sound with these live speakers is great, you will get a crystal clear sound with no effort at all and they even have a pass thru connector and microphone input directly on the unit.
I have had this speaker for almost 2 years now and I still use it a lot depending on where we are going to be. The LF driver size is 12 inches in this powered speaker and it is great for live and studio applications. When comparing these to the JBL EON’s you will notice that the sound is actually better and they are a little lighter but when it comes to quality I still think the JBL’s are built better and come with a better price tag.
The frequency range is 45Hz to 20Hz on the SRM450’s. I have not had any bad experiences with these speakers and I don’t think that I ever will. I have only heard great things about them and I plan on having them in my gear room for years to come without having to purchase new ones. But if I needed to purchase some new ones I would quickly and probably before I would purchase the JBL EON’s.

By orienting the speakers well, by pushing them to the correct level the sound is amazing.

The sound is right, not lost in acute or aggressive mediums drafts.
It should of course add subwoofers but obvious.
For repeated or 300 people concert that is excellent.
For top level dance evenings.
There are rcf, Boose etc. but by appearing (in the same price range) I prefer the SRM450 v2.
Less variety, more rock, pop, plus Manchester.

To see the long term.

vicinity27's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" qualitée pro"

Mackie SRM450v2
use for singing a hard rock band bcp therefore need power!
I hesitated a msr 400 from Yamaha.
So at first I plugged my microphone XLR direct and surprise even not melt bcp power ...
But be careful when plugged into a mixer preamp (they are almost all I think the mixers), the speaker sound becomes almost a real pro!
I by repeating the third branch while before I fully stagepass300 does not happen at the ankle

So bought without hesitation but with a mixer if the mic signal will not be recognized speaker and sound like a micro computer Hp

Mackie SRM450v2
I've had for over five years and it rocks SA1521 thunder, I sold to save space and weight, to buy the mackie and here I am with SRM450v2 (2X lighter) and a near equal power and it farts! I also had the HK Audio active speakers and amplified with the home MACKIE M1400!! At this time I was impressed by the detail and balance of sound and punch of Mackie. The value for money is excellent, you can go with your eyes closed. Still a small reserve on the fineness of his who found a slight notch below the age of FCR, but the internal amps equalize well together. A gadget too: the international ass of the enclosure which is then turned off when there is more to its source. It's the cat pee. I do it again without hesitation that the choice of active speaker and I have in the project to acquire srm1801 to catapult my system power. However, if I had the budjet necessary, I'm gone on the FCR or JBL.

Mackie SRM450v2
I did not have these speakers but long enough time to give my opinion.

Amplified in this category I just had Ecler Philos 10A. But I listened to a lot of models.

What I like is the power and well balanced overall. I pushed once a speaker at home, she stood on a box, both placed in a corner of the wall. Ouahou! A friend who was believed that the box was plugged. So Good for low sats. There is a button elsewhere who rounded a bit low.

What I like is not material and paint because it is easily scratched.

The value for money for me excellent. It is true that many swear by RCF. But it also has good Mackie site.

I got these speakers a bit random. It's a long story. If I did not have my Dynacord course that I would have kept. Anyway Dynacord is necessarily better. So I do not think I would do not have that choice but I recommend it highly.

it is I got my first SRM450V2 this afternoon Pros: lighter than the first SRM450 is clear! for testing, I'm at home in an apartment so I could not upgrade its push but what I heard is the quality of acute bloody less aggressive than the first! medium well enough for this low I know I still have to wait to make a night to realize the difference in the end ... so first seen rather good. I start after a test "size" or I can push the
For several nights that I use, the results are very satisfactory, although this low, medium, short, but this one can and fever to go short, sufficient benefits for up to 50 people every musical style.

I use them for several mois.J have had the opportunity to try a lot of models, yamaha, RCF, JBL, ... It is true that the FCR is not the quality but the sound was greatly improved! They are lighter, and lower the appointment.
I find them really solid after several uses "wild" (balls), they are the tjs!
