NAMM 2020: Mackie introduces the SRM V-Class series powered speakers
Mackie has announced the SRM V-Class series portable powered speakers. The newest members of the ever-popular SRM family come in three sizes with 10″, 12″ and 15″ woofers. With flexible input options, Bluetooth and wireless control, the SRM V-Class speakers are suited to a wide variety of applications.
Mackie SRM V-Class
The Mackie SRM V-Class series comprises the SRM210, SRM212 and SRM215. All three models are equipped with 2000 W Class-D amplifiers. According to Mackie, the amp provides plenty of headroom and delivers the “highest SPL in its class”. The speakers also feature Mackie’s Advance Impulse DSP technology with crossover and transducer time alignment. The company claims that this ensures a balanced sound across the entire dispersion zone.
The SRM210, SRM212 and SRM215 are equipped with 10″, 12″ and 15″ woofers, respectively. According to Mackie, these feature large, powerful magnets and specially designed voice coils with cooling vents. The high frequencies are handled by the Custom Sym-X horn, which reduces distortion and increases the efficiency of the HF transducer, Mackie says.
The SRM V-Class speakers feature integrated 4-channel digital mixers with two independent channels for microphone, line or instrument signals. There’s also an 1/8″ stereo aux input, and you can stream music via Bluetooth from a mobile device. This means that the SRM V-Class speakers can be used in a wide variety of settings. The SRM Connect app lets you configure the mixer settings wirelessly.
The SRM210, SRM212 and SRM215 can be set up in many different ways. The dual-angled cabinet design means that they can be used as floor monitors. They also have dual-angle pole mounts, and you can fly them using the M10 flypoints. You can also use Bluetooth to wirelessly link two speakers together, for stereo or dual zone operation.

While using Bluetooth to stream music from my phone, the direct no longer sends a signal to the subs. Neither does mix out. Any way to fix this?
