Mackie HD speakers

Mackie has introduced two new high-definition loudspeakers, the 1800W HD1531, and 1600W HD1521. Both speakers incorporate the company's acoustic correction processing that delivers transducer time alignment and phase correction, and features a 15-inch neodymium woofer with 3-inch voice coil, and a 1.75-inch titanium compression driver with heat-treated titanium diaphragm. Also integrated is Mackie's fast-recovery circuitry, which helps the amp recover from the occasional aggressive transient, to provide clean audio under most situations.

The HD1521 offers a 700W RMS low-frequency amplification, and 100W RMS high-frequency amplification. It's made from birch plywood and weighs roughly 80 pounds. With the HD1531 users receive a tri amplified system that offers an extra 6-inch high-output mid-range transducer; it weighs approximately 96 pounds. Both speakers also come with 12 integrated fly points for hanging the speaker either horizontally or vertically, as well as the ability to be mounted on a pole or stand.

They are available for purchase -- priced at $1200 for the HD1531, and 1000 for the HD1521.

    does the set of two speakers weigh 80lbs or does each speaker weigh 80lbs?

    That's the weight of each speaker. Not lightweights by any means.
