Mackie Intros MRmk3 Series Powered Studio Monitors

Mackie has introduced the MRmk3 line of powered studio monitors – an update to its popular MR series.

The updated monitor line not only fully replaces the previous generation of monitors with the MR5mk3 and MR8mk3, but expands the range with the 6.5” MR6mk3 full-range monitor and MR10Smk3 studio subwoofer.

Features:

  • A newly-designed minimum-diffraction waveguide not only provides seamless transition from highs to lows, but also creates a wider sweet spot and an open feel that better connects the user to the music.
  • The power amplifiers and transducers are custom-matched for increased performance.
  • All MRmk3 cabinets are rear ported, providing added punch and bass extension and packed with acoustic absorption material for the tight sound you expect from a professional studio monitor.
  • A range of I/O options deliver the connection types needed for easy studio integration. There are even customizable acoustic controls to get the exact sound needed for the space.
  • The low frequencies can be boosted by up to 4dB and the highs can be both cut and boosted depending on the user’s needs.

The MRmk3 Series also includes the MR10Smk3 Powered Subwoofer, providing the powerful, deep low end needed for genres like hip-hop and EDM. The low-profile enclosure is rear-ported to provide even bass and features vibration-absorbing rubber feet to minimize unwanted resonances. Optimizing features include an adjustable crossover to dial in the right amount of low end for the application plus a polarity switch to make sure the mix is always in phase.

Models:

  • 5.25″ MR5mk3 Powered Studio Monitor
  • 6.5″ MR6mk3 Powered Studio Monitor
  • 8″MR8mk3 Powered Studio Monitor
  • 10″ MR10Smk3 Studio Subwoofer

The new Mackie MRmk3 Series Powered Studio Monitors will be available beginning August, 2013. See the Mackie site for more info.

  1. Mackie make great gear, but when are they going to fetch out a desk, with out mic pre amps, (maybe one mic insert) just a cheaper 24 channel desk minus all those silly mic pre amps.loads of us make dance music /electro/techno/acid house etc/ we are paying a lot of money for stuff on desks that really aren’t used. The standard desks are base on 1970’s ‘recording models’ (control room outs, drum miking etc etc)
    Gis a rough and ready desk loads of inputs ,aux sends and returns, After exhausting two vlz’s ,
    I bought a Allen and Heath zed 24, I miss the mackie, but can’t afford a grand for 24 channel mackie, the Allen and heath was half the price of a 24 04 vlz Mackie.
    Mackie thing of all the dance guys, why the hell do we need 24 or 16 mic pre amps? We don’t.
    Those monitors look good!!!

  2. I like Mackie’s preamps and hope they keep making mixer/interfaces with lots of preamps for the foreseeable future. Lots of us make music using what brandon calls “1970s recording models”.
