Features

FRS / FRX amplifiers are equipped with the technology to keep the show going without interruption.

RESPONSIVE

FAST RECOVERY

FRS / FRX amps feature sophisticated Fast Recovery circuitry for the cleanest sound available. At Mackie, we know that people can often run their amps right up to clipping levels, so we designed our amps to handle these kinds of real-world conditions. What we came up with is circuitry that allows the FRS amps to deliver ultimate power, without sacrificing sound quality.

MODERN

EFFICIENT, LIGHTWEIGHT POWER SUPPLY

The FRS power supply employs a “soft” switching design that ensures that when the transistors switch, very little heat or errant energy is generated, so the FRS amps run quiet as a mouse, and cool as a cucumber all while being much more compact and weighing considerably less than a conventional linear supply, helping make our FRS amps super lightweight and ultra-portable. 

FAILSAFE

COMPLETE PROTECTION CIRCUITRY

FRS / FRX amps come with complete system protection. Built into every amplifier is a defeatable clip limiter, a subsonic filter and short, under-impedance, over-current and thermal protection. The power supply also includes real-time monitoring circuitry that keeps track of operating conditions in order to prevent over load failure.

LIGHTWEIGHT

PORTABLE POWERHOUSE

Despite being heavy on power, our FRS / FRX amps are the lightest Mackie amplifiers ever. Other amps in their class either weigh a ton, or don’t deliver on wattage. Thanks to the design of our super-lightweight and sophisticated switching power supply, we saved on the pounds, without sacrificing on performance.

Series Line-Up

From 1700 to 5000 watts, FRS / FRX Series amplifiers have the performance to satisfy even the most demanding systems.
