Check the input level. Sounds like the signal is being clipped.

SOURCE: stand for Mackie MR5

My best advice to you is to get your stands where I get mine - on eBay. They usually have a great selection of stands, tripods (although I personally would not put my nice Mackie reference monitors on tripods - too unstable).

Also, you will most likely find them for quite a lot less on eBay.

However, I believe Musiciansfriend.com (my favorite web site) may be having a fall sale very soon, or end of summer sale, and they have been known to reduce their prices heavily on things like stands, sound reinforcement, and other accessories during a big sale.

If FixYa sold such things, I wouldn't be sending you anywhere off site, but since you cant get them through us, I am giving you my absolute number 1 and number 2 choices that should solve your problem well.

If looking on eBay, be sure to measure your monitors, or get the information from the literature that came with the monitors. It's bit easier on Musiciansfriend.com, and here is a link to the stands they havce available there:

Another option is monitor wall mounts, as we have to two of four reference monitors in our home studio wall-mounted, and it's great getting them out of the way and not taking up floor space or valuable desk space.

I hope whatever decision you make will be one you are happy with.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: What type of fuse would you use for Mackie tweeter?

I would contact Mackie and see what they say. The MR5 is already protected internally by the built in amplifier circuitry as far as I know.They can be reached here:http://www.mackie.com/support/index.html

SOURCE: mackie MR5 speakers run hot even when not in use.

IF that speaker runs noticeably hotter than the other channel speaker, you need to take it to an authorized repair center. Your monitors are apparently active types, so unless you are a trained audio technician, you should refer service to the pros. Apparently, the problem is in one of the power amplifiers in the affected monitor.

SOURCE: How do i hook up my mackie mr5 speakers to my

yes - trs or xlr inputs will give you the same result, as long as you use the correct cables.

Make sure the mackies are off when you plug them in or you'll get a nasty thump. Equally, make sure the volume is down on your interface initially.

One speaker stopped playing bass


Sound like either the crossover or the driver has blown or, if you're lucky there is a loose connection internally if you have only checked external connections.

Tweeter is shot. Where can I buy another one.


These parts can be ovtained directly from Mackie. Please call them and have both the model number and serial number of the MR5. There are differences sometimes in the "runs" which use different actual speaker drivers. having the serial number will insure that you get the proper replacement driver.

You can locate a service center here:

Replace High Frequency Transducer (Tweeter) on


You should order an exact replacement from Mackie since this is a reference monitor.

Consider putting a limiter or fuse in series to protect the speakers if this was due to overdriving it.

Mounting a Makie MR5 on a tripod speaker stand..


Hi there. Search "top hat". There are 2 different depths. Compare measurements to space available in and on the enclosure where you plan to install it. (bottom)
