Mackie MR6MK3 6-Inch 2-Way Powered Studio Monitor
  • Perfectly matched amps and drivers for optimized performance.

  • This speaker sounds great and turned out to be quite powerful.
  • If you are considering these Mackie MR mk3 series speakers then you must be an audiophile.
  • Pricey (the price is for one speaker), the price point seems high.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Mackie MR6MK3 6-Inch 2-Way Powered Studio Monitor
  • The size and sound was perfect for our room size, which was about 3,000 square feet.
  • They have a weak low end, which is okay for monitors this size.
  • The set up process was extremely simple and easy, just plug and play, although the weight of each speaker was heavier than I expected.
  • If you plan on using them as desktop monitors, they are quite wide and deep, so make sure you have enough space.
  • I guess I didn't pay enough attention to the size because these are bigger than I expected.

What customers say about "Audio"
Mackie MR6MK3 6-Inch 2-Way Powered Studio Monitor
  • So I use these monitors with my computer set up too and again I am very impressed with the sound quality. Very flat response and great power.
  • Very clear and distortion free even at higher volumes. Fantastic low response that is clear and not muddy at all.
  • They sound quite phenomenal, the built in amplifiers drive them beautifully with minimal distortion across the frequency response.
  • The highs are also crystal clear and depending on the quality of the source, create a nice image of the sound.
  • They have a weak low end, which is okay for monitors this size.

What customers say about "Features"
Mackie MR6MK3 6-Inch 2-Way Powered Studio Monitor
  • This new improved monitor is heavy at weighing just over 12 pounds and being well constructed of a solid all wood cabinet.
  • This speaker provide seamless transition from high to low frequencies give you a crystal clear true sound.
  • What you get is a high output with controlled low frequency performance.
  • They are a much better solution to PC speakers but I do recommend getting a good interface or sound card to make sure you are utilizing the speakers to their full potential.
  • With TRS and XLR jacks, this monitor isn't recommended for the general consumer, but for audio professionals and hobbyists only.
