An Excellent Lightweight Sub for Your Rig!

At the heart of every punchy, booming, thumping, and (most importantly) well balanced PA system is a great subwoofer or two. Mackie has been building amazing PA gear for decades, and their subwoofers are some of the best in the world. The 15" HD1501 balances chest pounding thump with a truly musical Symmetrical Linkwitz-Riley crossover circuit, which lets you dial in the low-end impact right where your system needs it. Its own internal EAW amplifier supplies the HD1501 with 600 watts of power (1,200 watts peak), allowing it to generate a massive 131dB output. That's easily enough output to keep up with most midsize PA rigs. Lightweight Class D technology also keeps the HD1501's weight down to a mere 80 lbs., which makes it an excellent addition to any mobile system. If you're looking for high-end quality from a low-weight sub, the Mackie HD1501 powered subwoofer is the way to go.

6piece horn band loves the new sub!

Even at first rehearsal the band members remarked about the quality of the sub. Tonight we played our first gig and it did the job well. Band likes it, audience likes it. I use it with 2 JBL Eon 10s and it peels off the low end well enough for strong dance numbers OUTDOORS. It gives the little guys in the air the ability for vocal clarity. This was verified by audience members. I ran a Mackie 12ch filled up, with an Alesis multimix for horn/gtr/kickdrum reinforcement. Everybody's happy with this new addition. Get the Gator sub bag/dolly and you can pop it into the backseat of a toyota sedan.

Small footprint, great addition to our space

Added the Sub to a couple of JBL dual amped hanging speakers and it combines well for a very good sound in this multi-purpose room. Plenty of low end "thump" for the Kids and easily adjustable for a little less "presence" in different settings. Easily installed. Nice addition.
