The Mackie C300Z is a passive loudspeaker, with character and power. It provides wide dispersion and an accurate sound, but most importantly it will stand the test of time. The C300Z sports components from the ubiquitous SRM450 with custom design and tuning by Eastern Acoustic Works. What this means for you is that your audience hears you and clear!
Passive design with SRM450 components
The Mackie C300z passive loudspeakers are a quick way to expand your system, allowing you to add speakers and more power as needed. The C300z speakers offer the same drivers and studio sound quality of Mackie’s SRM450. They’re designed for optimum performance with Mackie powered mixers and power amps.
Lightweight speakers with heavy-duty components
The C300z two-way loudspeaker weighs less than 45 pounds, but it packs a ton of punch. The C300z features 600-watt peak power capacity, a 1.75-inch mylar high-frequency compression driver, and a 12″ low frequency transducer with a 3″ voice coil that can handle extreme temperatures both in the cabinet and in the outside world.
Precision-designed crossovers for maximum clarity
The crossover in the C300z employs Mackie’s unique Low Impedance Compensated Crossover (LICC) design. With EQ and crossover points meticulously chosen so that beam-width patterns match in both drivers, C300z loudspeakers offer natural sound at all volume levels with precise reproduction of the critical midrange and high frequencies for vocal clarity.
Rugged construction with multiple mounting options
The C300z loudspeaker features an injection-molded composite chassis that’s rigid enough to prevent unwanted resonance and standing waves forming inside the cabinet. Plus, it shrugs off impacts that would turn lesser wood boxes into toothpicks. For added convenience, the C300z has built-in fly points for hanging plus a socket in the bottom for stand mounting. Their asymmetrical trapezoidal cabinet means they can also recline for floor monitor use.
