Mackie XR824 8 Inch Professional Studio Monitor
Mackie XR824 8 Inch Professional Studio Monitor is designed by Mackie with the intention of revealing your true mix in a way that feels natural and accurate without the fatigue monitors can bring after long hours at the mixing desk. Mackie engineers have worked towards this because when it comes to monitoring, accuracy is everything, making the Mackie XR824 an excellent studio monitor. Its 8″ Kevlar woofer recovers from transients with incredible speed, resulting in exceptionally accurate low-end response. High and low frequencies are in perfect acoustic alignment, by virtue of the XR824’s logarithmic waveguide, giving rise to excellent clarity and articulation. Experience extended low frequencies, by means of this monitor’s ELP Bass Reflex System. The Mackie XR824 8″ studio monitor features an eye-catching black woodgrain finish. It can be used in various applications for recording studios, video production houses, voice-over studios, and more.
The monitor has XLR and TRS audio inputs and a 36 Hz to 22 kHz frequency response. For clarity, it features an XR logarithmic waveguide that matches the dispersion pattern of the 8″ Kevlar woofer for midrange transition, which recesses the 1″ tweeter so that its active area is on the same axis with the woofer. It provides the acoustic alignment of high and low frequencies for balance.
The ELP Bass Reflex System utilises an extended length, internally curved design that provides extended low-frequency response and increased output capability, even at high volumes without any “air noise”, which plagues typical ports. The built-in room optimisation adapts to suit any mixing environment, and the included foam isolation pad reduces unwanted vibrations. Making these monitors easily adaptable to suit your personal mixing environment. The three adjustable switches: Acoustic Space, HF filter, and LF filter, provide maximum ease of use.
Finally, the XR series monitors are equipped with a rigid, ultra-low distortion Kevlar woofer that maintains its shape even under a high amount of stress. This provides fast recovery from transients and accurate, detailed low-end.
