Sales - SA1521 Active 15
The SRM450 re-defined live sound. So much so that a lot of folks have asked for MORE OF EVERYTHING.
The new SA1521 truly fulfills the demand for MORE OF EVERYTHING.MORE power (500 watts). MORE transducer (RCF Precision 15-inch LF transducer). MORE SPL (133dB peak!).
The SA1521 is a truly collaborative effort between Mackie, EAW Engineering and RCF Precision. It's an honest-to-gosh technology breakthrough - an active, full-bandwidth solution with seamlessly integrated power and control, premium transducers and that wonderfully wide dispersion that lets everyone in the audience hear the same thing.
Put the SA1521 up against the most popular 15" two-way systems in the world and what happens? You suddenly discover that the competition is obsolete - problematic in design, poor in definition and basically nothing more than a 15" and a 1" playing separate tunes.
It doesn't take long to realize that the new SA1521 truly RE-DEFINES 2-way 15-inch speaker systems.The SA1521 is an Active speaker system that expands the performance envelope of previous Mackie Active products. It has better resolution, output and linearity than the SRM450 and higher output than the SR1530 product. It also sets a new standard for 15-inch woofer/ 1-inch compression driver based systems through it's smoothness, power and mid-band performance. This leads to a compact product with a broad range of applications that is powerful and very easy to use.
Several state of the art advancements in transducer technology have been incorporated in the design of the SA1521. The compression driver uses a new 1.75-inch titanium diaphragm featuring a 3-slot, optimized geometry phase plug. When coupled to the low-distortion, high-output horn, the SA1521 provides uniform power response and correct phase alignment characteristics at the crossover frequency. With the resulting 75°x 65° dispersion pattern,the SA1521 provides very open, natural sound reproduction at extreme output levels.
A 15-inch high-efficiency RCF Precision woofer produces tight, punchy bass. The woofer's magnetic structure delivers an exceptional amount of magnetic force and is responsible for the system's high sensitivity and high efficiency by providing tight control over the cone's movement. This tight control over the woofer's moving mass results in unusually smooth low-frequency response from 50Hz up to the mid-frequency crossover point at 1300Hz.
The amplifier for the compression driver incorporates a Class AB topology, renowned for its clarity, warmth, and high-voltage output to generate extreme SPL levels. A Class G design is used for the low-frequency amplifier, which features two power supplies for improved efficiency and
more output power per pound.
The internal processor provides complete system management of all electronic and acoustic functions. These include an electronic active crossover, electronic phase alignment, electronic time correction, electronic equalization, and complete amplifier and component protection.
To ensure long term reliability,the amplifiers are mounted on a massive extruded heatsink, which is convection cooled and dramatically extends the life expectancy of the heat-producing components.
The SA1521 cabinet is constructed using both multilayered plywood and pressure injected structural resin. The combination provides a robust enclosure with useful ergonomic features. There are three-part cast aluminum handles on each side of the enclosure placed at the speaker's center of gravity for easy carrying and setup. Handles are also located on the top and bottom of the cabinet for easy movement and relocation. A built-in pole-mount cup is provided on the bottom,and a full-size, oval punched, weather-resistant steel grille protects the front of the cabinet.
