Overall: I play singer song writer/folk music in some resturants where performance space is really small. Although I use a Vocalest live to power my 48V fanom power mike, and add harmony now and then, you could just plug a good mike into the speaker direct and sound just fine. I have a flute player with me and we plug her mike directly into the DLM,add a little reverb and it sounds great. People frequently comment on how great we sound. Including the owner. The sound is HD. Awsome. I also needed something lighter than my old SM450s. This speaker fits the bill perfectly. When I bought my DLM 12 I was looking for the DLM 8,but I couldn't find one at the time. I plan on getting the DLM 8 also and will use it in really tight spaces. The efects on these units are really nice. My only concern is the Mike switch on channel 1. Turn the level all the way down before hitting the switch because the gain is enormous and you will have instant feed back in some casses. I put a cover over the switch so it can't be pushed by some one that isn't familiar with the unit. It would be great if Mackie put a 48 volt mike switch on the DLMs to power the really nice vocal mikes I use. I look for easy,simple,light weight, equipment set up. This is it. I am also a fiddle player and I plug directly into the back of the unit and sit in with bands. I can be heard with out pluging into the bands PA.

Overall: This sub is fantastic. Lightweight by comparison to competition. Small footprint tight sound. Works extremely well with the DLM 12 speakers And looking forward to buying the DLM eights in the future. 200 shows a year power and weight is a concern. Makie Has address this with small size and outstanding power and sound.

Overall: I have recently upgraded from Mackie 450 V2 speakers to the DLM 12 and could not be happier..the addition of RCA inputs as well as vocal effects on seperate channels makes this PA so versatile. never had issues with Mackie Products in the past and have NO reason to think that will be the case here. Clarity and full sound at low volumes and Insane power when you need it.

Overall: I just checked out the Mackie DLM loudspeakers. They are way cool. Unique, compact design, tons of power and a built-in digital mixer. The DLM12 full-range speakers sound amazing with 2000 watts, plus you can run them with the DLM12S Subs for extended bottom-end. The DLM8s make great stage monitors OR you can use them as top boxes too. Get two of each and a DL1608 Digital Mixer for a totally killer PA – mains, wedges and wireless mixing… Awesome.
