Picking up where our SWA1501 leaves off, the Mackie SWA1801z ups the ante with even more wattage and a bigger 18" transducer
. The SWA1801z features an internal 800-Watt
FR (Fast Recovery) Series amplifier
and a high-precision 18" transducer
custom designed for optimal performance with the amp
and enclosure. Onboard Mackie Active electronics ensure seamless integration of the amplifier
at all times, creating a system that is highly efficient and versatile. Add it all up and this high-output system will peel the paint right off the walls!
TRUE MACKIE ACTIVE DESIGN
Active doesn't just mean the SWA1801z has an amplifier
bolted on its back - it means optimized electronics that provide complete control and maximum performance over all components. The onboard Active system controls the crossover
, protection for the transducer
and electronics, and provides real time
vigilance over the entire system. There is simply no way that you can get this kind of full system functionality by strapping an amp
on the back of a passive speaker box.
NO NEED FOR AN EXTERNAL CROSSOVER
Connecting and setting up the SWA1801z is a breeze. It accepts a stereo
or mono line-level
signal via female XLR
input jacks. Male XLR
Thru jacks are provided for daisy-chaining the signal to additional SWA1801z cabinets. The built-in crossover
routes the high frequency
content to the high-pass output jacks, which can be used to feed the inputs of full-range Active speakers, such as those in the Mackie SAz Series, or an amplifier
powering a pair of passive speakers. A Subwoofer Level
control lets you adjust the balance between the subwoofer
and the full-range speakers.
THE SECRET TO OUR POWER
The SWA1801z's built-in amplifier
, which produces 800 watts
continuous power, sits on a massive heatsink, eliminating the need for fans and dramatically extending life expectancy. A tremendous benefit of having the amplifier
inside the subwoofer
enclosure is that the SWA1801z functions as a complete system, optimizing acoustic, electronic, and mechanical designs to achieve the highest level
of performance and value.
SOLID WOOD CONSTRUCTION
For high-output loudspeakers, real wood just sounds better-and it looks better, too! The SWA1801z enclosure is made of select 15mm Baltic birch plywood and finished in black splatter paint. Carrying handles are integrated into each side for easy loading, and casters are attached to the rear for transport. Since you will probably want the full-range enclosure nearby, a pole mount receptacle is strategically placed on top of the enclosure.
