Thump up the jam with the next evolution of Mackie’s Thump Series, new ThumpXT Loudspeakers, and a refresh of the classic Thump Loudspeaker
Mackie has completely refreshed and expanded its acclaimed Thump Loudspeaker Series, including updates to the standard Thump and the all-new ThumpXT Loudspeakers. Built with Mackie’s legendary sound, the new models live alongside the popular Thump GO making this the biggest lineup in the history of the series, featuring all-new cabinets, more power, and greater optimization options.
“Since its debut, the Thump Series has been a staple of the gigging DJ’s toolkit everywhere, but in true Mackie fashion, the team is always finding ways to take Thump to a new level of performance.”, said Matt Redmon, Director of Product Marketing at Mackie. “We’ve re-designed Thump from the ground up, giving musicians and venues the best in both quality, experience, and affordability. For weddings, clubs, patio performances, and everything in between – This is honestly the most powerful, best-sounding, and fullest featured generation of Thump that Mackie has ever produced.”
Featuring a completely new design, the all-new loudspeakers maintain Mackie’s signature Built-Like-A-Tank™ construction and versatile I/O of the popular Thump Series loudspeakers plus some powerful upgrades. The 1400W ultra-efficient Class D amplifiers provide ample headroom for demanding performances allowing vocals, instruments, and music to cut through loud outdoor venues or indoor crowds with up to 128dB and 47Hz – 20kHz for optimal clarity.
Available in Thump and ThumpXT options, both offer a built-in Feedback Eliminator in addition to a convenient Music Ducking Mode. The new ThumpXT tacks on extra capabilities with venue-specific voicing modes and supplementary controls via the Thump Connect 2 App. Access system EQ, levels, mutes, Voicing Modes, and more, then link the speakers together for Bluetooth® wireless streaming and control.
For easy connectivity and input flexibility, the Thump Series utilizes dual TRS/XLR inputs and a stereo 1/8” aux input makes it easy to quickly connect a media player on the fly. Add the new Thump Series subwoofers (Thump115S and Thump118S) with 33Hz – 200Hz frequency response and up to 133dB to your system for extra rumble. As the most compact Thump Series subwoofer ever, the ergonomic Thump115S simplifies transport without sacrificing power.
