Mackie Launches All-New SRM-Flex Portable Column PA System

USA – At NAMM 2020, Mackie is showing its latest entry into the portable PA market, the all-new SRM-Flex Portable Column PA System. Featuring an ultra-lightweight design, legendary SRM Series sound quality, a full-featured six-channel digital mixer, and complete wireless control and streaming, SRM-Flex is perfect for solo acts, small bands, presentations, events, DJs, and more. Packed with premium features and capability, SRM-Flex offers an incredible value not before achieved at this price point.

The modular design of SRM-Flex features a 10” LF woofer in the molded cabinet base module which also contains the 13,00W amplifier and built-in digital mixer. The three-piece tower houses a wide-dispersion array with 6 x 2” high-performance HF drivers for clear, whole room coverage. This modular tower design allows the user to easily change the height of the mid and high frequencies to match the ear level of the audience.

“Portability is a major factor with a portable PA, and SRM-Flex delivers,” said Craig Reeves, Mackie product manager. “At under 30 pounds, the SRM Flex is easy to carry one handed, and it’s small size means it will fit easily into the trunk of your car, or even on the bus.”

The SRM-Flex has been meticulously tuned, utilising the latest in acoustic measurement technology for crystal clear sound that is balanced and punchy. Whether plugging in a mic and a guitar or streaming music from a phone, SRM-Flex offers exceptional sound worthy of the SRM name.

The built-in six-channel digital mixer provides everything needed to get the sound and mix just right. Two flexible Mic/Line inputs accept microphones, instruments, and more. There is also a dedicated stereo channel with dual 1/4” line inputs and a dedicated 1/8” Aux In / Bluetooth streaming channel. Channels 1 and 2 are equipped with individual two-band EQs and Reverb level controls with three different reverbs to choose from. To tailor the entire system to your application, there are three voicing modes available at the push of a button. Connecting to a second SRM-Flex or house PA is easy via the professional XLR mix out.

Control is fast and easy, even mid-performance, thanks to dedicated physical controls for every critical adjustment. For even more freedom, the SRM-Flex Connect app allows wireless control from an iOS or Android device. The app not only provides the same control available on the SRM-Flex itself, but offers even more customisation such as front LED and metering behaviour, presets and more.

“SRM-Flex is incredibly easy to get up and running and sounding great,” remarks Reeves. “And with full physical controls plus complete wireless control, adjustments on the fly are stress-free.”

For an up close and personal look at it, and the rest of the newest Mackie gear, visit Mackie at NAMM 2020, 16-19 January, at the Anaheim Convention Center in room 201D.
