The Mackie HR824 MONITOR High Resolution Powered Monitor - pair. The ideal choice for professional studios due to its clarity, broad stereo imaging, ruler-flat response, and extended low-frequency range.

The Mackie HR824 MONITOR is found in countless professional studios due to its clarity, broad stereo imaging, ruler-flat response, and extended low-frequency range versus other studio monitors. With such astonishing sound quality, there is little wonder why the HR824 was approved for THX compliance on its initial trial. Mackie Active technology makes the HR824 possible.

Onboard FR (Fast Recovery) amplifiers provide 150 watts to the 8.75 inch German-engineered MF/LF driver (aka the “woofer”) and 100 watts to the waveguide-loaded HF driver (aka the “tweeter”). The result is a smooth, accurate transition from lows to highs, with an ample 100dB SPL@1 meter output. Frequency response is verifiably flat from 39Hz-20kHz, with a 3dB down point at 37Hz. With extremely even dispersion for a wide "sweet spot" and user-adjustable controls for a variety of acoustic spaces, the HR824 is not only the choice of hundreds of professional studios, they can also be found in the tour buses and home studios of many top recording artists.

Several years ago, many manufacturers started using “Active” interchangeably with “Powered” in describing their studio monitors. But make no mistake; a true “Active” design means that a studio monitor contains separate onboard amplifiers for each driver, plus onboard Active crossovers (which eliminates the need for external processing and eliminates phase anomalies), and time-correction circuitry, so the highs and lows reach the listener at the same time. You can trust this internal amplification and processing to push the Mackie HR824 speakers to the “max” without any danger of pushing them beyond their limits - whilst bringing you the sound quality that Mackie engineers intended in all instances.

Move off-axis with passive monitors (and most powered monitors, for that matter) and you will experience prominent midrange and high frequency dispersion problems. In contrast, the HR824 's waveguide-loaded tweeter greatly improves both vertical and horizontal coverage, matching the high-frequency polar pattern to that of the bass transducer (the "woofer") for seamless midrange transition. Thanks to the computer-assisted design of the logarithmic waveguide the HR824 's high-frequency imaging is stunningly accurate, delivering a much broader sweet spot than almost any other monitor on the market today.

The Mackie HR824 's extended low frequency response is achieved, in part, by a mass-loaded 6 inch x 9 inch honeycomb passive radiator that fires out the rear of the enclosure. This passive radiator works in concert with the high-precision, German-designed LF driver to deliver extended low-end response without resorting to a "ported cabinet" design. How does it work? Servo-feedback circuitry monitors the LF transducer's motional parameters and applies appropriate control and damping using the passive radiator. This constant correction produces tight, articulate bass without the tubbiness, distortion or overhang common among most small monitors. Rear panel Acoustic Space, LF roll-off and HF adjustment controls for use in matching the acoustic properties of any room will help you get the right sound to deliver consistent and accurate final mixes. Mackie HR824 's deliver "high-end" performance without the high-end price tag.

The main features of the Mackie HR824 MONITOR include:

  • The ideal choice for professional studios due to its clarity, broad stereo imaging, ruler-flat response, and extended low-frequency range
  • 8.75 inch low-distortion LF transducer with onboard passive-radiator provide ample, tight bass response down to 37Hz
  • 1 inch HF transducer loaded onto logarithmic waveguide for wider dispersion pattern more closely matching that of LF driver
  • True Active design with FR Series amplifiers - 150W for LF / 100W for HF with onboard time - and phase-correction crossover
  • Low Profile design, ideal for left, right, center (LRC) applications
  • Acoustic Space, LF roll-off and HF adjustment controls for use in matching the acoustic properties of any room
  • Non-fatiguing through hours of use
  • XLR, 1/4 inch jack and RCA inputs
  • Low Profile design, ideal for left, right, center (LRC) application
