Frequently Asked Questions About The Thump Loudspeakers
Can I add a subwoofer to it?
Yes, you can add a subwoofer for chest thumping low end.
Can I use it with an instrument?
Yes, its 2-channel mixer lets you plug your instrument or microphone into channel one and your iPod, MP3 player, or another line-level source into channel two.
What type of inputs and outputs does it have?
It has two combo 1/4″ and XLR inputs and an XLR output.
What is the difference between Class A and Class D amplifiers?
Class A amplifier output circuits work like traditional tube amps, by directly converting the input signal into amplified audio output. This can result in warm analog tones, but Class A amps are typically larger and more expensive. In a Class D amplifier, the input signal goes through a digital-to-analog converter that then turns it into amplified audio output. Class D amps are typically cheaper, more efficient, lighter, and are often used in subwoofers.
Is it durable?
Yes. The 12A was rigorously tested to ensure your pa speaker won’t let you or your audience down.
What is the difference between active and passive speakers?
A passive speaker contains only the driver, frame, and grille. An active speaker also includes a power amplifier. For smaller venues that don’t need loud volumes, an active monitor can be cheaper than purchasing or renting an amplifier for your passive speakers. Active monitors are also easier to transport, set up, and tear down.
What is the difference between a 2-channel mixer and a larger 8- or 12-channel mixer?
A 2-channel mixer only has two channels, sometimes called input channels. It can be used to connect multiple speakers for active monitoring, but it does not have enough power or EQ features to handle a full sound system. A larger mixer can handle multiple channels for a PA or DJ-style sound system, as well as provide additional EQ and effects.
What is the difference between “Mic” mode and “Instrument” mode?
The Mackie’s Mic Mode is optimized for spoken word vocals to maintain clarity at higher volumes. Instrument Mode balances low-frequency response with high-end clarity. It allows a variety of instruments to be heard clearly in spaces where spoken vocals are less present.
What is the difference between a FOH and a monitor?
A FOH (front-of-house) speaker sends the same mix to all audience members – no matter where they are sitting or standing. A monitor speaker’s signal is controlled by a separate external mixer and is usually aimed at the performer so they can hear their own vocals and instruments clearly.
Is it difficult to set up?
No, Mackie’s speaker design makes setup easy for anyone who can plug in a mic or instrument cable.
How heavy is this speaker?
It weighs 29 pounds.
What type of power supply does it use?
It comes with a universal internal power supply that thumps accept wall power with the appropriate power cord.
What warranty does the speaker come with?
1-year warranty that covers speaker defects, accidental damage, and workmanship issues.
