If you want to complete your PA with serious low-end, the Mackie DRM18S powered subwoofer is the ultimate solution. Decades of innovation in DSP technology and amplifier design allowed us to optimize the DRM18S to its fullest potential. With ultra-efficient power, an over-engineered cabinet, and Advanced Impulse DSP tuning, the Mackie DRM18S has everything you need to shake the room.
When setup time is limited, changes need to happen on the fly, or you just want to get your system going without extra hassle, the last thing you need is the controls on your loudspeakers being difficult.
The DRM Control Dashboard™ starts with a big, bright, full-color display that is easy to read and offers unmatched visual feedback on levels, adjustments, and more. The default window keeps you informed on every critical setting at a glance. Big green level meters let you know clearly when you have signal and if it is clipping.
But how do I control it? One single knob, that's it. Spin to select what you want, push in, set it how you like it, done.
Subwoofers are naturally omni-directional. This means that the sound they project goes in all directions. This can sometimes cause excess bass buildup, feedback issues, and more on stage. That's where cardioid comes in. Cardioid subwoofer setups are incredibly helpful when you want all that rumble off of the stage and out to your audience. It accomplishes this by utilizing multiple subwoofers, with one facing in the opposite direction. This works because the rear-facing sub cancels out quite a bit of the bass that would otherwise be shaking the stage and in turn sends it all you your audience. The DRM18S has settings located in the DRM Control Dashboard that make it easy. You can arrange them side by side or in a stack.
