The Mackie HR824 Studio Monitor is an active, biamplified speaker that delivers a wide, deep, and incredibly detailed sound field. You can actually hear distinct tonal qualities of an instrument's low end. High frequencies and midrange are clean and articulate. A low-frequency acoustic space control makes it easy to tailor the sound to your space. Internally powered by 2 smaller versions of Mackie's FR M•1200 power amp, delivering 150W for the lows, 100W for the highs. Features a 1" alloy dome high-frequency transducer, an 8-3/4" low-frequency transducer, 1/4" and XLR inputs, overload/clip LED, and logarithmic wave guide. 34 lbs.
