The Mackie DLM8 and DLM12 each deliver 2000 watts into the most compact, professional portable loudspeaker design ever. Featuring TruSource™ technology, the DLM loudspeakers are equipped with Mackie’s TruSource driver that incorporates the high-output 8" [DLM8] and 12" [DLM12] woofer and 1.75" compression driver into an incredibly compact common-magnet design. Powerful TruSource DSP delivers seamless clarity, consistent dispersion and unmatched fidelity.

These versatile loudspeakers feature the Mackie DL2 integrated digital mixer, providing a dual-channel mixing solution for a wide array of possible connections with incredible channel features like 3-band EQ and 16 great-sounding effects. Plus, system processing like a multi-band feedback destroyer, six speaker modes and Smart Protect technology provide the tools needed for truly professional applications.

With configuration options that include pole / wall mounting and flying, the sleek DLM loudspeakers are a powerful solution for high-end installs. The ultra-compact form factor includes a rugged PC-ABS cabinet, powder-coated grille and integrated kickstand for personal monitor use.
