Check out this video for an overview of the DLM series:

Onboard Digital Mixer and Presets

The DLM12 features an huge array of presets and mixing options, which are easily accessible through the onboard DL2 digital mixer. For starters, you get two channels with combo TRS/XLR jacks to accommodate virtually any input source. Channel two includes stereo RCA inputs to connect MP3 players and other media sources, while a thru output jack enables easy connection to additional speakers. Once you've got your inputs set, the DL2 digital mixer allows intuitive control of your sound with individual three-band EQ on each input, multi-band feedback suppression, and 16 gig-ready effects. Also included are six different speaker modes specifically voiced to cater to various performance scenarios. The 'soloist' mode, for example, brings out read more the best of a guitar and vocal input, while the 'DJ' mode accentuates those frequencies need to really shake the dancefloor. Once you've selected the effects and modes you want to use and crafted the best setup for a gig, you can save all settings in one of three user presets locations.

TruSource Driver Alignment

One of the many innovative features of the DLM series is the introduction of Mackie's TrueSource driver alignment technology. By aligning a 1.75-inch compression driver and 12-inch woofer into a single vertical column, the DLM12 increases efficiency while reducing the overall weight and size of the entire speaker. TruSource technology effectively centers the entire frequency range (an impressive 38Hz - 20kHz) to one point which reduces overlap and fidelity loss that sometimes comes with traditional 2-way systems.

Easy Portability and Versatile Setup Options

For all its many features and uses, the DLM12 remains a remarkably small unit, coming in at a full third smaller than comparable powered speakers. As any mobile DJ will appreciate, a pair of DLM12s can easily fit in the trunk of your car and make it to the stage in one trip. A set of M10 rigging hardware makes installation a breeze, while a standard speaker-stand socket allows mounting on stands or in a satellite setup with a subwoofer. The DLM12 also makes a fine stage monitor, with a built-in kickstand along with a monitor preset mode. If you have multiple DLM speakers set up at a distance, the DLM12 is equipped to compensate for the difference with up to 300 milliseconds of alignment delay.

Very impressive little speaker. it has a lot of punch to it. It works amazing as a stage monitor. I also used it to DJ a wedding of 150 people. I paired it with a DLM12s subwoofer, and it worked great in a medium sized reception room. Mackie customer service in my experience is second to none. That being said, i've only had to call them for one issue, because of the quality they put into their products in the first place. the issue was resolved with no hassel immediately.
