Mackie 524 overview

  • 1Description

The MR524 Studio Monitor from Mackie is a powered 5" 2-way reference speaker that is designed for mixing and monitoring in your home or project studio. It features a logarithmic waveguide system that aims to minimize reflections and diffractions for a wider sweet spot, plus a custom-tuned rear port to help ensure an even bass response.

The MR524 is equipped with matched amps and drivers for an optimized 50W Class-A/B bi-amplified system. The speaker can also be optimized to your mixing environment with the adjustable acoustic space filters designed to maintain a flat response in typical placement configurations. Additionally, a high-frequency filter applies a boost or cut to compensate for particularly bright- or dull-sounding rooms.

The MR524 has been designed with flexibility in mind, featuring XLR, TRS and RCA monitor inputs. The speaker has been housed in an all-wood cabinet that has been treated with acoustic absorption material for a tighter response. Additionally, the MRS10 studio subwoofer can be added for a more powerful, extended low end.

  • Designed for superior mix translation and accuracy for professional results in any studio
  • Equipped with Mackie’s proven logarithmic waveguide design
    • Ultra-wide dispersion for enhanced stereo imaging and listening sweet spot
    • Precise acoustic alignment offers incredibly balanced sound across the entire frequency spectrum
  • 1” silk dome tweeter provides fast transient response for detailed high end and vocal clarity
  • 5” polypropylene woofer delivers responsive, dynamic low frequency response
  • 50-watts of bi-amplified Class A/B amplification
  • Frequency response: 45 Hz – 20 kHz
  • Optimize MR monitors for your mixing environment

    Mackie 524 reviews

    MR524 - 5" 2-Way Powered Studio Monitor (Single) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really enjoying these These Mackie speakers are really surprisingly good, especially for the price. They do take more power to drive than the Tannoy Reveal 501A's they replaced, but that's no big deal. It took a little bit of time to find just the right spot and angle for them on my desk, but now I'm treated to nice, deep, tight bass unlike anything I expected. These are rated to 50Hz and I can tell that's not an over exaggeration. The highs are much less sibilant and noisy than the previous Tannoy speakers I had. I listen to a lot of EDM, Rock, and Metal so mids and lows are critical. I do have a small subwoofer which fills out the sound just a little bit, but honestly these don't need it.� I compared these to the MRMK3 speakers, and these really improve the clarity and accuracy of the music. I also cross-shopped PreSonus, Sterling Audio, KRK, Focal, Yamaha, and Pioneer. All the brands have their pluses and minuses, so it really comes down to personal preference.� For what it's worth, I didn't find the Mackie MR524's to be quite as clear or bright as the PreSonus Eris E5's, but ultimately the lack of mid-bass response from the PreSonus speakers was the deciding factor. The PreSonus would be fantastic if you're primarily listening to classical or vocal music, but for everything else I think Mackie has them beat hands-down for the same price. I drive the Mackie's from my computer via Optical S/PDIF to a Yamaha RX-V1 receiver. I then pass the unbalanced output to a CleanBox Pro for balancing and run XLR to the speakers themselves. I keep volume on all devices around 50-60%. I have no doubt I could blast these to ear-deafening levels but I actually like my neighbors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bang for your buck I'm very happy with these monitors. They seem well built and have good clarity. I use them for video production some am mostly mixing dialogue or dialogue over music.
