Performance-driven passive speaker line delivers features contractors need and performance customers expect
ANAHEIM, CA, USA – JANUARY 22, 2015 – Mackie today introduces an all-new loudspeaker line specifically designed for installs seeking rich, articulate full-bandwidth response in a sleek compact design – iP Series Install Performance Loudspeakers.
“We are extremely excited to deliver a professional Mackie solution for the install market,” commented John Boudreau, SVP Product Marketing. “iP speakers deliver stunning performance and have a clean look perfect for even the most aesthetically-demanding venues.”
The series includes three full-range models (10″, 12″ and 15″) and a companion 18″ subwoofer. The full-range iP-10, iP-12 and iP-15 feature 8 x M10 rigging points and a rotatable 90°x50° horn to support both vertical and horizontal rigging. A rotatable center logo allows for clean presentation in all configurations.
Sonically, premium components include high-output, custom-designed woofers with large voice coils to handle more power for maximum output and premium 1.4″ titanium diaphragm compression drivers for smooth, consistent high-frequency response. Plus, convenient features like a choice of either Neutrik® or terminal connections can simplify an install, saving time and cost. A selection of mounting accessories delivers additional placement flexibility. Available are both a ceiling and wall-mount bracket to meet the needs of nearly any install application. The optional SP260 2×6 Speaker Processor features presets specifically for iP loudspeaker for quick setup and flawless sonic performance.
“With the demanding needs of install applications, each and every detail is important,” remarked Boudreau. “From horizontal and vertical hangs, to low-profile wall and ceiling mount accessories plus a rotatable logo that presents well in any orientation, iP series is the perfect solution when the client is focused on the perfect aesthetic.”
