The Mackie DRM18S is a state-of-the-art active subwoofer, loaded with 2000 watts of power and innovative DSP to ensure top-notch sound. It’s built for demanding live performances, with a custom high-sensitivity transducer and a roadworthy, texture-coated 18mm plywood cabinet. Beyond that, the DRM18S is a breeze to set up, thanks to Mackie’s DRM Control Dashboard, which features a high-contrast, full-colour display on the sub’s back panel. For world-class sound and no-fuss setup, you can’t beat Mackie’s DRM18S.
Top-shelf construction offers world-class sound
Because of its top-shelf construction, the DRM18S offers world-class sound. Its 18″ high-excursion woofer delivers exceptional sensitivity, bass response, and reliability — whatever your application, the DRM18S can tackle it. Enjoy smooth yet punchy low-frequency response thanks to a front-ported, direct-radiating design. Experience peak performance while avoiding blowouts courtesy of next-gen protection circuitry. Benefit from optimal acoustic performance by virtue of roadworthy 18mm plywood construction and internal bracing. Beyond that, a pole cup makes installing pole-mountable speakers child’s play.
Loaded with advanced features
The DRM18S is packed with innovative technology, including Impulse DSP for peak performance. Experience reference-quality sound — even at high SPLs — thanks to the precision acoustic correction, while linear-phase FIR filtering minimizes inherent anomalies, phase issues, and muddy bass, resulting in punchy, accurate low-frequency reinforcement. Setup is a snap, thanks to a user-adjustable variable crossover point that allows you to match the DRM18S to any speaker system, plus a DRM-specific mode for full-range DRM speakers. You also get an Alignment Delay control for delay stacks, along with a cardioid mode for easy setup of a directional subwoofer array. Save and recall up to six user’s presets, and benefit from Mackie’s DRM Control Dashboard, which includes a high-contrast, full-colour display and quick, 1-knob access to configuration, processing, and more. The DRM18S has all the features that we demand — and then some.
