Mackie MR5 MKIII Reference Monitor Details

The Mackie MR5 MKIII Reference Monitor is specifically designed from start to finish for your music, aimed at revealing the full range and natural character your music deserves. Optimizing features include an enhanced waveguide system for a wider sweet spot and custom-tuned rear porting for smooth, extended bass response. With a wide range of full-range options and a powerful studio sub, you can be sure MRmk3 has the right setup for your studio.

The ability to reveal the character of your music is easily the biggest reason to get professional studio monitors and Mackie MRmk3 monitors are packed with design features to enhance this experience. From the added punch and bass extension provided by the custom-tuned ports to the rugged all-wood cabinet packed with sound-tightening acoustic absorption material, you can be confident that MRmk3 monitors are revealing the full-range, natural character that your music deserves.

When Mackie designed the new MRmk3 Powered Studio Monitors they didn"?t start on paper, they started with music. Mackie poured through countless hours of music from every possible genre and source. Then, we began the iterative process of designing and redesigning all the critical components that go into a professional studio monitor until we believed we"?d created the perfect marriage. The result is acoustic optimization through features such as MRmk3"?s all new minimum-diffraction waveguide that delivers unmatched clarity and an open feel that instantly connects you to the music. Furthermore, optimized electronics as well as custom-matched amps and drivers add in clarity and balance unlike anything else in their price range. Because "" most importantly "" MRmk3 monitors are designed from start to finish for your music.

All studio spaces are different and having the right connection types and customizable control over your acoustics is important. Want more bass? Pump up the low end by up to 4dB and feel the difference. Or, boost or cut the highs to get the exact amount of sizzle and shimmer you want. Adding an MR10Smk3 studio subwoofer to your system only adds to the experience. It not only delivers the chest-pounding punch critical for genres like hip-hop and dance, but also lets your mains focus on what they do best for optimum studio performance.

Great for a first monitor! December 25, 2010
Reviewer: Al  
These guys are surprisingly - Great! I got a pair of these two year's ago and love their sound. When testing these in store I tried them against everything in there price range (BX5a, KRK, and more that I cannot remember, but not the new JBLs) and they were by far the best overall sound. It actually has bass proportional to its highs (also has bass and treble 3 position EQs). In this price range its hard to find a set of well balanced speakers, most lack bass, and the few with enough have thin or harsh highs. The best part is the high quality soft-dome tweeter, and solid cabinet.
BUT THEY BLOW OUT! I do not know why but I have had two monitors die on me. On one the amp just quit out, and on the other the Low freq. died (suspected bad voice-coil) and the high freq. amp burnt-out. I would say that if you do decide to get these; get a (in all other situations rip off extra warranty) good deal extra warranty.
