Key Info

Mackie HD1501 is a 15" High-Definition Powered Subwoofer that features 600W RMS / 1200W peak of efficient Class-D Fast Recovery™ amplification

The Mackie HD1501 15-inch powered subwoofer provides intense low-frequency extension and punch to any Mackie full-range system. The ultra-portable HD1501 High-Definition Powered Subwoofer delivers 1200W of peak system power via Class-D Fast Recovery™ amplification. Class-D amp design delivers up to 95% efficiency and, along with the lightweight switch- mode power supply, drastically reduces this subwoofer’s weight.

EAW custom-designed HD Series transducers maximize efficiency and performance when matched with the system’s internal amp. The 15-inch woofer uses a ferrite magnet with a 3-inch voice coil.

Premium circuitry includes a symmetrical Linkwitz-Riley crossover, precision tuning filters and user-friendly features such as high pass outputs for stereo operation with a single sub. The lightweight and portable 15mm birch plywood enclosures feature a ported, direct-radiating design. The professional look of the HD1501 may be further enhanced by defeating the front panel LED. The integrated pole-cup accommodates a standard mounting pole. Pair the HD1501 with any Mackie full-range loudspeaker for an extremely powerful and fully high-definition PA solution.
