Top-flight sound companies provide high-output, high-quality sound to large audiences all over the world, on a daily basis. They have to—or they're out of business. That's why they employ experts to design and tune their systems and use arrayable cabinets loaded with multiple drivers. Systems that feature large, wide-dispersion horns, and subwoofer stacks—all configured to match the requirements of each venue.

At Mackie we believe that smaller venues, including clubs and houses of worship, also deserve high-quality, affordable sound. That's why we collaborated with the loudspeaker design gurus at EAW and came up with a solution—the Mackie S400 Series Precision Passive Loudspeakers with Tetrad Driver Alignment Technology.

Compare the coverage pattern of our S408 with a "garden-variety" two-way 15" speaker system at left. The 15" system breaks down on the outer edges of its coverage pattern, due to unmatched dispersion characteristics of the 15" transducer and horn plus the difficult crossover point between a large 15" driver and a small horn. This tends to "muddy" the overall sound, even for those directly in front of the speaker. The Mackie S408 projects consistent, focused, high-quality sound to its very limits, providing clearer, more accurate sound to the entire audience—even when used in highly reverberant spaces, like churches, gymnasiums and banquet halls. Tetrad Technology brings superior sound to more of your audience.

The S410s Precision Passive Subwoofer

The S408 full-range enclosure is designed to integrate perfectly with the S410s subwoofer. While most compact and portable subwoofers use either a single 15" or 18" driver and a folded-horn design to maximize bass, the S410s has four 10" drivers per cabinet, providing much tighter bass response, greater power handling, and far more punch—all the way down to 40Hz.
