We will look some of the content found in the Mackie Thump 15a manual in this blog post. We might also give you a download link to download the file in pdf format.
The 1300W Mackie Thump loudspeakers raise the bar for the series by delivering tried-and-true, heart-pounding low-end with Dynamic Bass ResponseTM technology in brand-new, professional enclosures. You are able to achieve maximum adaptability with built-in mixers and speaker modes tailored to certain applications.
Together with the 1200W Thump18S Subwoofer, your Thump speakers will provide the most earth-shattering low-end.
These are the most adaptable and powerful Thump loudspeakers we’ve ever made, with the class-leading performance you need.
Mackie Thump Setup
You can rapidly set up the loudspeakers by using the methods below.
1. Turn off all initial links to witches’ powers on all machinery. The master volume, level, and gain settings should be completely off.
2. If a subwoofer is being used, connect the outputs from the mixing console (or other signal source) to the loudspeaker’s inputs before connecting the mix out to the subwoofers’ inputs. Ensure that the gain knob on the subwoofer is set to “U.” (unity gain).
3. If a subwoofer is not being used, attach the mixing console’s outputs—or those of another signal source—to the loudspeakers’ inputs on the back panel.
4. Ensure that the gain knobs on the loudspeakers are close to or set to “line.”
5. Insert the line cord firmly into the IEC connectors on the subwoofer’s loudspeakers and attach the other ends to grounded AC outlets. The appropriate voltage may be accepted by the subwoofer or loudspeaker, as stated close to the IEC connector.
6. Turn on the signal source (the mixer, if applicable).
7. Switch on the subwoofer.
8. Turn on the speakers.
9. Turn on the signal source and turn up the primary L/R fader of the mixer to a volume that is comfortable for hearing.
Things to Keep in Mind:
Avoid extended exposure to loud music. For details on wearing hearing protection, please refer to the Safety Instructions on page 2. As a general rule, turn on the mixer (or other signal source) first, followed by the subwoofers, and then the Thump loudspeakers. As a result, it’s best to turn off the mixer first, then the subwoofers, then the Thump loudspeakers.
This will lessen the likelihood that any upstream equipment noises, such as turn-on or turn-off thumps, may be heard through the speakers.
Keep the packing supplies and shipment boxes coz you could require them later on. Additionally, cats will like playing in them and surprise springing out at you. Keep in mind to act as though you are shocked!
Mackie Thump 15a Safety Instructions
Keep all ventilation apertures clear. Follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions. Installing this equipment close to heat sources like radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other devices that generate heat is not recommended. This includes amplifiers. Do not undermine the polarized or grounding-type plug’s safety function.
One blade on a polarized plug is wider than the other. A grounding-type plug includes three grounding prongs in addition to two blades. For your safety, there is a wide blade or a third prong available. Consult an electrician to replace the outdated outlet if the supplied plug does not fit in your outlet.
All servicing should be directed to trained service workers. When the device has suffered any kind of damage, such as a broken power cable or plug, liquid spills or things falling within the device, exposure to dampness or rain, malfunctioning, or dropping the device, servicing is necessary.
This equipment must not be subjected to splashing or dripping, and no objects containing liquids—such as vases or beer glasses—should be placed on it. Avoid overloading extension cords and wall outlets to prevent fire or electric shock.
Thump loudspeakers are made to be placed on the floor or stage as the main PA or as monitors. Through the built-in connection on the cabinet’s bottom, they can also be mounted to a pole. Verify that the pole can handle the loudspeaker’s weight. The SPM200 is a fantastic subwoofer alternative. Thump loudspeakers are not riggable since they lack rigging points. A Thump loudspeaker should NEVER be hung from its handles.
Verify that the support surface (such as the floor or other surface) possesses the mechanical properties required to sustain the loudspeaker’s weight (s). To prevent them from toppling over or being unintentionally pushed over when mounting loudspeakers on poles, make sure they are stabilized and secured.
