The HD1501 is capable of producing 1200W of power and it does so in an extremely compact design that’s easy to move from gig to gig. Class-D Fast Recovery amplification makes the HD1501 subwoofer ultra-efficient, effortlessly delivering massive power to the 15 driver that’s custom-designed to handle the job. Expertly tweaked tuning filters, internal crossovers, and protection circuitry are designed by EAW for the ultimate in professional performance. Give your Mackie HD, SRMv2, or any other full-range system a much needed hot bass injection with the Mackie HD1501 Powered Subwoofer.
Just pair up the HD1501 Powered Subwoofer with any HD Series full-range loudspeaker for an extremely portable PA that delivers unmatched clarity and eliminates the need for tons of expensive and heavy outboard gear. The precision-tuned HD1501 is a perfect match for the top boxes, with a high-pass output specifically designed to alleviate the power-hungry low frequencies from getting to your top boxes, allowing them to do what they do best. The entire system features protective circuitry, including peak and RMS limiting, over-excursion, and thermal protection to keep those lows pumping at all costs. This subwoofer’s also a great match for your SRM450v2.
The HD1501 subwoofer speaker delivers 1200 watts of peak power using Mackie’s Class-D Fast Recovery amplification. Class-D amps allow for extremely high-output in a design that is much lighter than traditional amplifiers. Normally, a sub that can push that kind of power is no fun to lug around. Okay, we can’t promise a fun load in, but we can say that your subwoofers are now probably lighter than your bassist’s rig. It’s also really compact, which means you should even be able to carry it all by yourself. Plus, Mackie’s Fast Recovery design allows the amplifier to recover more quickly when pushed into clipping. This means less distortion when things get too loud.
Mackie has once again called on the sonic geniuses over at EAW to make the HD1501 one the most punchy, chest-pounding subwoofers in its class. The ported, direct-radiating design means super-low frequency extension that is smooth and powerful. EAW also custom specified the 15 driver to work in perfect harmony with the amplifier. The woofer is designed to soak up each and every bit of power the amp puts out. Precision phase control and tuning filters make the HD1501 the perfect companion to the HD1521 or SRM450v2, especially when using the high-pass outputs. A finely tuned, phase aligned and undeniably professional PA system is just a couple of patches away.
The HD1501 speaker embodies Mackie’s “Built-Like-A-Tank” philosophy and is certifiably roadworthy. First off, the enclosure is built using 15mm birch. Wood is not only more durable than plastic, but delivers a more natural sound. The HD1501 also features durable textured black paint that minimizes the risk of scratching. The grill is equally robust, made using powder coated steel and flush with the enclosure to avoid denting. If you use the Mackie subwoofer speaker in an install situation, you can flip off the trademark “Mackie Blue” LED on the front if you want the Mackie HD1501 to blend seamlessly into the background. Throw in the fact that is one of the most compact subwoofers available and you’ve got an ultra-professional bass bin that can be tossed in the back of even sub-compact vehicles.
