View our rental Terms & Conditions

 Sometimes you need all the bottom-end you can get. That's where the Mackie SWA1501 Active Subwoofer System comes in. The SWA1501 features an internal 500-Watt Mackie FR  Series amplifier and a high-precision 15" speaker, custom designed for optimal performance with the amp and enclosure. Connecting and setting up the SWA1501 is a breeze, it accepts a stereo or mono line-level signal via female XLR input jacks. Male XLR Thru jacks are provided for daisy-chaining the signal to additional SWA1501 cabinets. The built-in crossover routes the high frequency content to the high-pass output jacks, which can be used to feed the inputs of full-range Active speakers such our QSC K12 powered speakers, or an amplifier powering a pair of passive speakers. A Subwoofer Level control lets you adjust the balance between the subwoofer and the full-range speakers.
