Introducing the Mackie DLM8 Powered Loudspeaker — the most powerful, professional and compact powered loudspeaker available on the market! With the compression driver and high-output woofer combined into a common magnet design, the 8" full-range DLM8 is smaller and lighter than any other speaker in its class, and it is so unbelievably versatile! The DLM8 cranks out powerful, rich audio with 2000 watts of class-D power and offers transparent, premium fidelity thanks to Mackie's TruSource™ technology (which combines unique transducer design and powerful digital signal processing). And if all that isn't enough of a reason to buy the DLM8, the integrated 2-channel digital effects mixer/processor also gives you the tools to shape your sound just the way you want it! This little wonder truly is "the new shape of sound."

Premium Fidelity and Maximum Output from a 2-Way Speaker
One of the most significant technological innovations of the DLM line is Mackie TruSource™ technology. TruSource includes custom transducers and powerful digital signal processing, and the drivers for DLM speakers feature vertically aligned high and low frequency devices, delivering near perfect coherence.

The 1.75" compression driver and 12" high-output woofer utilize a unique common magnet design that deliver professional fidelity, maximum output and consistent coverage in a compact size. This provides significant sonic improvements when compared with traditional two-way systems, which have vertically displaced drivers that create unnatural response in the most critical mid-range frequency. Try it out- play the same audio through your old 2-way speaker, and then be wowed by the clarity of the DLM8. The difference is obvious!

Huge Sound and Raw Power in an 8" Speaker Design!
DLM8 loudspeakers deliver 2000 watts of pure, raw Class-D power for maximum power in a minimum space. The ultra-efficient Class-D amplifiers have optimal heat dispersion and protection circuitry. This means that with your new DLM speakers, you can play to a larger audience than you'd be able to with other 8" powered loudspeaker systems. Trust us: Mackie's "built-like-a-tank" speakers can handle it - especially when paired with Mackie's companion DLM12S subwoofers!

Custom-Tailor Your Sound with the Integrated Digital Mixer/Processor
The onboard DL2 2-channel digital mixer/processor truly is a fully-fledged, easy-to-use mixer, with input levels for each channel, 3-band EQ and 16 digital effects to custom-shape your perfect sound. As a processor, the DLM8 has 6 speaker modes including PA, solo and monitor, and you also get a powerful multi-band feedback eliminator and 300 milisecond alignment delay to time-align the sound of stagger-spaced speakers (usually used in larger event scenarios where additional sound spot coverage is necessary). Once you get the right mix, you can store up to 3 user presets to instantly recall your settings.

Pro Portability Redefined!
With the common magnet design and TruSource™ technology advancements, Mackie has achieved the most compact design ever for a professional portable loudspeaker. Picking up this speaker feels as light and easy as lifting a bowling ball! You don't need a van to haul these speakers around- all DLM series speakers are 33% smaller and 20% lighter than the other speakers in their class, which means that you can now literally fit your entire pro sound system into a sedan! Combine the DLM8 and DLM12S subwoofer with the Mackie
DL1608 Digital Mixer for iPad to complete the most compact cutting-edge system available!

Application Versatility
While we're talking about portability, we should mention versatility as well. You can stack the DLM8 up for storage, mount it on a tripod or the Mackie
SPM300 speaker pole, fly it with standard rigging hardware and an eyebolt kit, or try wall mounting it for installation applications (using the SWM300 wall mount kit).
