July 15, 2008 by Mobile Beat

Las Vegas, Nevada- InfoComm – June 18, 2008 – Mackie today enters the lightweight power amplifier category with their new FRS Series – the FRS-1300, FRS-1700, and the FRS-2800. FRS Series amplifiers combine Mackie’s legendary Fast RecoveryTM circuitry with a modern switching power supply for exceptional sound and performance in portable applications.

“In true Mackie fashion, the FRS Series amps combine clean power and performance in a lightweight design,” says Mackie product manager, Greg Young. “Fast RecoveryTM means your sound stays clean, even when pushing them to their limits. These amps are perfect for the rig on-the-go, and give you more power for your dollar- so they won’t break your back or your wallet,” finished Young.

The FRS Series features Mackie’s legendary Fast RecoveryTM circuitry for clean, undistorted sound and the ultimate in punch and clarity-even at clipping. New high-current switching power supplies make them super-efficient and ultra-lightweight-perfect for portable PA rigs. “Built-like-a-tank” construction and Mackie reliability mean the FRS amps will withstand the rigors of the road, and perform flawlessly during gigs. More powerful and quieter than others in their price range, FRS Series amps satisfy even the most demanding systems.

The FRS Series include a high-resolution, 6 segment LED meter per channel, defeatable clip limiter, subsonic filter, and on-board protection circuitry (short, under-impedance, over-current and thermal). The FRS Series includes 3 powerful models – the FRS-1300, FRS-1700 and FRS-2800 with rated output of 1300W, 1660W and 2800W respectively @ 4 Ohms bridged. The FRS Series have an MSRP of $519.99 for the FRS-1300, $649.99 for the FRS-1700 and $769.99 for the FRS-2800. The entire series is now available.
