Mackie Thump TH-15A DJ Product Review
"Thump" up the voume w/ Mackie
Mackie are one of those DJ supply stores that’s known for continuous grade A equipment, like their Onyx 820i. If you’re a working DJ who wants quality in your audio set up, go to Mackie. If you want acclaimed mixers with impressive feaures, go to Mackie. In order to say these things, I would have to have a lot of confidence in Mackie and their DJ gear. For example, I would have to have a lot of confidence in their Thump TH-15A. Let’s hope its features and the quality of these speakers live up to Mackie (and my) expectations, or else I’ll have to swallow my words.
The Mackie Thump TH-15A offers:
- Deep low end and real power in a lightweight, portable design
- Class D Fast Recovery amplification that pushes 400 watts of power
- User adjustable 3 band EQ for tone control
- Best value for a compete stage solution, thanks to Thump being pole mounted & used as a wedge
Weight and Dimensions:
- Width: 16.8 in/427 mm
- Depth: 15.8 in/401 mm
- Weight: 36 lb/16.3 kg
- Height: 27.1 in/689 mm
Mackie Thump TH-15A
Remarkably, Thump is mobile DJ friendly, as it’s very compact and lightweight enough to take anywhere without worrying about the size bringing you down. When people buy these speakers, most will be impressed at what they get for such a low price. However, I know a lot of working DJs know that this is nothing compared to other high-end speakers on the market. Unfortunately, those are way expensive, so if you don’t have the money, the Thump is definitely for you. It’s perfect for any club gig.
The best part about these speakers isn’t the mobility; the best part is the sound. Mackie did a good job naming it THUMP, because that’s exactly how it sounds with great high and low resolution, loud, clean sound, deep (rich) bass, and an equalizer that perfects whatever flaws working DJs may find. Trust me when I say you’ll find very few complaints in the sound department. On top of that, you know the features and portability are amazing, and did I mention that setup is a breeze? Just plug in and play. So does Mackie’s Thump do nothing but impress? If you’re a working DJ who is sort of on the picky side, then you probably won’t be impressed with the plastic exterior, which brings the quality (and definitely the durability) of the Thump down. But don’t let this detail make you lose sleep at night, because it doesn’t bring it down by much.
All and all, working DJs have a good product here. Take advantage of it until you want an upgrade.
