The new Mackie SA1532z puts out an astounding 1300W and creates the highest
SPL you can coax from a standard power outlet—a staggering 138dB. That's like
standing next to an industrial strength pile-driver, only one that's a lot more
musical and a whole lot more HiFi. These amps are so powerful and convert so
much electricity to sound, that we highly recommend you give each Mackie SA1532z
its very own circuit, unless of course, you just enjoy resetting circuit
The SAz Series
represents Mackie's best to date; our ultimate Super Active Loudspeaker systems
re-designed from the ground up and tuned by the gurus at Eastern Acoustic Works
(EAW). The SA1532z is a 3-way, Active loudspeaker featuring our Optimized
WaveFront™ horn design, providing better coverage, detail, and vocal
intelligibility — something previously unattainable in this class. As a final
touch, we pack all this amazing technology into an EAW-tuned wooden enclosure.
With This Much Low-End, Who
Needs a Sub?
Ever wonder why don't you see 24- or 36-inch LF transducers?
You'd think they'd blast bass like the god of thunder himself was on drums.
Turns out, as woofer cones get bigger, they get slower due to the atrocious
amounts of air they must move — bass gets "mushy" and craps out. So, instead of
an 18" woofer, we opted to deliver faster, tighter bass by using dual 15" LF
transducers with 3" high-temperature voice coils (which keeps the SA1532z's
These dual 15s have 35% more surface area than a single
18-inch woofer and can respond to transient attack much faster — especially when
driven by up to 20 amps of current. You'll get the tightest bass you've never
heard. Three-way accuracy's never been this loud before.
Don't Skimp On The Highs
We gave the Mackie SA1532z's a new 1.75" titanium design
high-frequency transducer with a Neodymium magnet structure. A driver this
state-of-the-art simply isn't found in any other pro audio SR system. The
SA1532z's 6-inch Neodymium midrange transducer is capable of four times the
output of previous designs. And our Optimized WaveFront™ horn design allows the
HF horn to fire slightly down into the midrange, providing more predictable,
consistent coverage and a wicked smooth transition between the mids and highs.
Our "competition" can't even come close to the quality and performance of the
loudspeakers in this class.
cabinet is constructed using both 18 mm multi-layered plywood and pressure
injected structural resin. Weight balanced carrying handles are integrated into
the sides and top for easy loading and transport.
Hear and Feel The
When you hear the Mackie SA1532z, the first thing you'll
experience is chest-pounding bass that is clean and crisp; then you'll notice
the clean, accurate, and warm quality of the midrange. You'll hear vocals that
have incredible detail, without being harsh. And beats that are clear and
defined with amazing low-end punch. As you crank up the volume, you'll realize
this remarkable fidelity doesn't go away as the loudness increases. You're
hearing blisteringly loud and accurate at the same time, a phenomenon not common
to conventional PA systems in this class. These speakers will not only make you
sound better — they will inspire you play better!
