HD1221 2-Way High-Definition Powered Loudspeaker produces top of the line power and unique clarity and flexibility in a design that is as sharp as it sounds. Class-D quick Recovery amplification produces 1200W of peak system power. High-Definition Audio Processing combines the next-generation Mackie Active electronics and re-defines powered loudspeakers by using Mackie’s patented acoustic correction processing for an sound that is unrivaled in the world of portable powered PA systems. The easy to use design lets you stack, pole-mount or fly your Mackie HD1221 12″ 2-Way High Definition Powered Loudspeaker making it easy to use as a premium stage monitor. MAXIMIZE YOUR OUTPUT! The bi-amplified system is super compact (even smaller than the classic SRM450) still very powerful. Providing a beefy 500W RMS low-frequency amplifier and a 100W RMS high-frequency amplifier when combined will deliver a max SPL up to 133 dB. There is a ton of debate regarding SPL measurements. The HD1221 2-Way High-Definition Powered Loudspeaker mixes the latest in Class-D amplifier technology to deliver a chest-pounding 1200W of peak system power. Both internal amps were built using Mackie’s classic Fast Recovery circuitry. Other amplifiers can “latch” when pushed to clipping causing distorted audio. The Fast Recover amplification reacts instantly to the occasional aggressive transient drastically reducing the time it takes for the amp to recover promising clean audio under the most tough situations. This Mackie HD1221 12″ 2-Way High Definition Powered Loudspeaker instantly takes the work out of setting up a perfectly tuned system. Introducing Mackie High-Definition Audio Processing. The key to high-definition live sound is the detailed measurement and analysis of the inherent problems of horns and woofers.
The high-end 12″ neodymium woofer come with 3″ voice coil and is built to handle the major power brought by the low-frequency amplifier. The magnet is built using neodymium that provides a much bigger magnetic field with much less material. This makes the woofer super lightweight without jepordizing one bit of your performance. The large 3″ voice-coil is built to handle and dissipate much more heat than traditional designs.
The 1.75″ compression driver reproduces high-frequencies with a diaphragm made using heat-treated titanium. Heat-treating increases the rigidity of the diaphragm avoiding the distortion that can occur due to inconsistencies on its surface. this will increase the life of the driver. The HF driver is mounted to a custom-designed 90 x 50 horn by Martin Audio that delivers premium performance.
The Mackie HD1221 12″ 2-Way High Definition Powered Loudspeaker delivers pro tone that is adjustable to suit the application of your choice, three-position voicing switch provides the right tone for the job. The perfect settings to use when blasting the HD1221 to its optimum volume. The “Contour” position gives a boost to both the high and low end. This is perfect for getting the best full-range tone when running at lower levels. When using the HD1221 as a stage monitor you will have “Monitor” position that will allow the vocals cut through a monitor mix keeping stage rumble and feedback to a minimum.
The 15 mm thick birch plywood cabinets are super tough designed with substantial internal bracing and a coating of durable, textured black paint. A cold-rolled, powder-coated steel grill gives it a sleek and modern look that is made to blend into the environment.
