Mackie C200 Compact Passive PA Speaker: The ultra-portable passive speaker with superior dispersion and punch.

Priced within the reach for any consumer the Mackie C200 is the ultra-portable speaker that can sound great on stage, installed in a restaurant, or in a studio. The Mackie C200's ergonomic design gives the user plenty of options. Fly it up on a wall to bring it up a to a less visible level for sound installations, floor it and use it as a monitor, or place it on a stand to project sound on stage or as a studio monitor. With such a compact size and power the Mackie C200 is ready for whatever you want to put it through.

Sound installation power-house EAW teamed up with Mackie to create the woofer the Mackie C200 uses for sound projection. EAW took their experience building speaker systems for the Vatican, Olympic arenas and much more to create custom LF drivers and HF drivers for the C200. The LF drivers can output up 500 watts of peak power. This is achieved by using a 2-inch voice coil that can handle such wattage with a cone tuned to reproduce accurately any frequency between 59 Hz - 3000 Hz. Couple them with a high frequency titanium driver and horn able to reproduce the higher frequencies you get complete tonal separation for accurate sound dispersion at any volume. Built-in the Mackie C200 is a Low Impedance Compensated Crossover, pre-tuned for you to provide the correct balance of frequencies to send to the HF and LF respectively allowing you to add even more C200s to your sound without worrying about EQ differences. In total for all this technology the Mackie C200 remains justly affordable. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Mackie products.

Product Description

Looking for renowned Mackie sound quality in a portable, lightweight package? Want to instantly upgrade the sound of your existing powered mixer or amplifier without breaking the bank? The Mackie C200 2-Way Portable Passive Loudspeakers put the superior clarity, wide dispersion, and legendary ergonomics of the SRM Series within reach of any serious musician, DJ, or small club. These compact-yet-loud speakers can be pole-mounted for use as a small full-range PA system, combined with subwoofers as needed, and even employed as high-quality passive floor monitors.

The Mackie C200 is Designed and Tuned by EAW

The new C Series Passive Loudspeakers represent Mackie's first lightweight passive speakers designed and tuned exclusively by the Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) loudspeaker engineering team--the same folks responsible for designing loudspeaker systems for the Super Bowl, the Olympics and the Vatican. And although loudspeakers for these mega-systems cost exponentially more than the humble Mackie C200, some of the same concepts applied, namely: designing custom 10" LF drivers with a frequency range from 59 Hz - 3000 Hz and a 2" voice coil that can take a pounding. And a 1.4" High-Frequency titanium Driver and Horn providing a wide, controlled dispersion pattern and precise reproduction of the critical 1000 Hz - 20,000 Hz upper mid-range and high frequencies.

Crossovers Tuned to Perfection for the Mackie C200

Tuning a crossover (i.e. voicing a system), involves dozens of critical decisions that many manufacturers overlook. In the end, it is all about balancing the design so that you get the best subjective results from the speaker while maintaining a good technical implementation. The crossover in the C Series is a unique Low Impedance Compensated Crossover (LICC) design with an asymmetrical slope. With EQ and crossover points meticulously chosen so that beamwidth patterns match in both drivers, C Series loudspeakers offer natural sound at all volume levels.

The Mackie C200 has Ultra-Wide Dispersion

A loudspeaker's dispersion characteristic shouldn't be lame just because its compact in size. Venues like coffee houses and small theatre / rec rooms can be hard to cover. Owners usually have to make do with odd shaped rooms and fixtures placed wherever they fit.

The Mackie C200's high-frequency compression driver is mounted on an acoustically non-resonant exponential waveguide, providing a wide, controlled dispersion pattern and precise reproduction of the critical upper mid-range and high frequencies. The result is an unbelievably smooth off-axis response that allows everyone in the audience to experience the same high-resolution audio no matter where they are seated.

Mackie's C200 is Thinking Inside the Box

Anyone with a factory can build a box and stick some speakers in it (and that's just what many do). But low-frequency transducers in square boxes can create resonances that reflect off the rear wall and pass through the woofer cone out of phase, and ready to mess up your sound. The Mackie C200 enclosure is an asymmetrical monocoque design with no parallel surfaces, causing mid and high frequency resonances to be reflected at angles into internal damping materials, instead of interfering with the woofer doing its thing.

The Mackie C200 is Built for Serious Abuse

Designed for use with existing speakers and power amps (and optimized for use with the Mackie PPM Series), the Mackie C200 loudspeakers are passive versions of the industry-standard Mackie SRM350 portable active loudspeakers. These speakers' injection-molded composite chassis is built for the rigors of the road. And they shrug off impacts that would turn those cheap-o, fuzz covered wood box speakers into toothpicks.

Mackie's C200 Makes a Wondeful Floor Monitor Too!

Floor Monitor A good floor monitor plays loudly without generating feedback through vocal microphones. A poor floor monitor, on the other hand, will generate feedback just about the time you turn it up to a useable level. Floor monitor feedback is often caused by uneven frequency response and dispersion; some frequencies arrive at the microphone much louder than others. These "spikes" are what trigger feedback as the floor monitor volume is increased. The Mackie C200 has incredibly smooth, spike-free response and dispersion over a wide range of treble frequencies. So you can increase its volume without boosting those nasty, feedback-inducing spikes. Without extensive tuning, no passive speaker or specialized floor wedge in this class can even come close.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (17 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Small gigs, practice areas, I don't think you could find a better set of speakers, plus they would fit in the back seat of a car"
Sound: Straight forward loudspeakers... I use them as mains in my rehearsal room with a Mackie 808M for vocals and this system doubles as a kick ass "stereo"! Excellent sound and build quality. Easy to move, makes for a real versitile small portable PA. Feature: Great durable and lightweight plastic cabinets Ease of Use: Speakon or 1/4" inputs, simple "plug & play" Quality: I've used Mackie products for years without any issues whatsoever. This particular design is awesome. You can use stands, sit them on the floor, hang them, or sit them angled on the side as floor monitors. I don't know what else you could possibly want/need? I'm sure they would work great upside down too!!! Value: If you want this level of quality, you have to pay for it. Not bad at all compared to other products in the same class. Manufacturer Support: I say "10" because I've never had to use support for any Mackie product. The Wow Factor: ? Overall: I expect these speakers to last for years and years........

Sound: I compared the Yamaha S115V speakers with these speakers head to head. The Mackie sounds cleaner. Different applications but excellent speaker. Feature: Great for a small / medium venue Ease of Use: Ok, easy. Quality: Very high Mackie quality.. period. Value: Great value Manufacturer Support: don't know The Wow Factor: If a speaker can have "sex appeal" this speakers has it. Overall: I can't imagine anything else would be better for the price.
