Pack your power and go with the Mackie HD1501, a 1x15-inch powered subwoofer supplying 1,200 Watts peak in a compact, portable system. Class-D Fast Recovery amplification enables the HD1501 to pump loads of clean power through a custom 15-inch driver, while convenient tuning features, internal crossovers, and protection circuitry designed by EAW allow the HD1501 to put the professional touch on any performance. Want rich, articulate bass for gigs and tours? Here you go.

Accurate Bass Reproduction

The powered sub pumps 600 Watts RMS/1,200 Watts peak power using Mackie's Class-D Fast Recovery amplification system, which maximizes power output while minimizing distortion. The Fast Recovery design helps the amplifier recover quickly when pushed into clipping, so loud performances are still great performances.

Custom EAW 15" Driver and Efficient Cabinet Design

If punchy, throbbing, well-tuned lows are what you love, you'll be pleased with Mackie's HD1501 for its EAW-designed ported, direct-radiating design that delivers ultra-smooth, extended low frequencies. The powered subwoofer's custom 15-inch driver, also contributed by EAW, works hand in hand with the built-in amp to deliver big sound as efficiently as possible. Precise phase control features and tuning filters put you in the driver's seat of your sound.

Built-in Limiting for Hassle-Free Operation

Keep your low end happy with protective measures designed to keep the show up and running no matter what. Peak and RMS limiting, over-excursion, and thermal protection give you peace of mind when pushing the subwoofer really hard during intense sets.

Able to survive everything from stage rage to constant touring abuse, the heavy-duty HD1501 features an ultra durable enclosure made of 15 mm birch, along with a powder-coated dent-defying steel grille and textured paint that hides exterior blemishes.

Portable, Professional PA

Just pair up the HD1501 Powered Subwoofer with any full-range loudspeaker for an extremely portable PA that delivers unmatched clarity and eliminates the need for tons of expensive and heavy outboard gear. The entire system features protective circuitry including peak and RMS limiting, over-excursion and thermal protection to keep those lows pumping at all costs.

Power and Agility

The HD1501 Powered Subwoofer delivers 1200 watts of peak power using Mackie's Class-D Fast Recovery amplification. Class-D amps allow for extremely high-output in a design that is much lighter than traditional amplifiers. Normally, a sub that can push that kind of power is no fun to lug around. Okay, Mackie can't promise a fun load in, but they can say that your subs are now probably lighter than your bassist's rig. It's also really compact, which means you might even be able to carry it all by yourself -- sorry roadies. Plus, the Fast Recovery design allows the amplifier to recover more quickly when pushed into clipping. This means less distortion when things get too loud.

Tweaked and Tuned

Mackie has once again called on the sonic geniuses over at EAW to make the HD1501 the most punchy, chest-pounding subwoofer in its class. The ported, direct-radiating design means super-low frequency extension that is smooth and powerful. EAW also custom specified the 15 inch driver to work in perfect harmony with the amplifier. Some of the other guys claim high wattage, but use limiters to reduce the amount of actual power that hits the speaker. That's like buying a 40-year-old single malt scotch and mixing it with Mountain Dew. Mackie would never do that to you... the woofer is designed to soak up each and every bit of power the amp puts out. Precision phase control and tuning filters make the HD1501 the perfect companion to the HD1521 or SRM450v2, especially when using the high-pass outputs. A finely tuned, phase aligned and undeniably professional PA system is just a couple of patches away.

Ready for Anything

The HD1501 embodies Mackie's Built-Like-A-Tank philosophy and is certifiably road-worthy. First off, the enclosure is built using 15 mm birch. Wood is not only more durable than plastic, but delivers a more natural sound. Mackie covered the HD1501 in durable textured black paint that minimizes the risk of scratching. The grill is equally robust, made using powder coated steel and flush with the enclosure to avoid denting. But Mackie also thought of the install market and you can flip off that trademark Mackie Blue LED on the front if you want the HD1501 to blend seamlessly into the background. Throw in the fact that is one of the most compact subwoofers available and you've got an ultra-professional bass bin that's extremely portable.
