If the cone is damaged, it is possible to get it 're-coned'. If you can find a shop that does this type of speaker repair.

Otherwise, call around music stores (by that I mean places that sell musical instruments and PA gear) and see if they sell/sevice Mackie. If you are comfortable taking the old woofer out, just order the part and DIY.

It is not critical that the woofer is an exact replacement (doesn't have to be a Mackie speaker), the important things are:

1) it fits and screws back into the speaker cabinet
2) it is electrically similar to the original (same impedance 4 ohm or 8 ohm) and wattage rating

Hi; My mackie srm450 is not giving bass anymore what can I do to repair it ?


FIrst of all this is not a repair site per se. We help by providing information that you may require to repair something.

For your specific problem, there can be many causes. The speaker itself can be defective, the amp may be blown or the crossover could be malfunctioning. Without seeing the actual unit, I cannot possibly know which is the case. These are decent units and rarely fail in this manner. In my experience, the likely problem is the speaker itself. You can contact Mackie directly for a replacement. If you have an ohmmeter, disconnect one of the speaker wires and measure across the speaker terminals. You should read either 6 or 3.6 ohms. If you read infinity, the coil is open and the speaker must be replaced. If you feel that you cannot attempt this repair, please update this with your location so I can suggest a repair facility close by.

Thanks,
Dan

Hi there, I am after a replacement 'right hand' handle for an SRM450. Can you tell me where I can buy one online? Cheers, Andrew


I'm sure you can get them from Mackie. They have free parts manuals at their site, but I didn't see one for the SRM-450. They do list email and phone technical support. I would drop them a note or give them a call and I'm sure they can take care of your problem:
Their contact info is on this site: http://www.mackie.com/scripts/contact_support.asp
Hope this helps

Mackie SRM450 speaker keeps making a 'popping' sound


First thing is to verify that a ground loop from your driving equipment is not causing the problem. Easiest way is to drive it with a BATTERY operated little CD player so no ground loop could exist.

Verify that your power cord is in tight and try another cord to verify it is OK.

Beyond this, service is probably required. If unit is out of warranty, you could have a person open it up to see if anything is obvious.

A possible proble is bad connectors or worse, a cracked circuit board.

Analyzing if noise is from both the woofer and high range speaker is a first step.

Repair a Mackie SRM 450 Speaker The Speaker is making a crackling sound while playing. The sound keeps cracking up.


You probably need to replace the diaphragm. The diaphragm is located behind the back cap. Simply remove the back cap, remove the diaphragm, clean the voice coil gap with a piece of masking tape, install a new replacement diaphragm, reinstall the back cap. That it!
You can see videos on how to replace diaphragm at this link.

Mackie srm450 power light out


if its the blue front light you are talking about it is a fiddly but simple fix.
1 phone mackie and order an l.e.d. about £2
2 when it arrives take out the woofer and carefully lay to the side.
3 use a very small philips screwdriver, a tiny bit of blue tack, a mirror and a torch to remove the screw holding the small circuit board with the l.e.d.in place (the blue tack is to put on the tip of the screwdriver to hold the screw and the mirror and torch is so that you can see it)
4 remove the small circuit board and un-solder the l.e.d from it take note of the orientation of the contacts as they only work one way round) and resolder the new one in place.
5 check that it works and re-fit the board and screw ( this can take 2 seconds or 2 hours depending on how lucky you are and how sticky the blue tack is.
6 re-fit the woofer and grill.

the other way is to split the cabinet using the screws on the back and then the repair is obvious from number 4-5

Mackie srm450 the tops on one speaker is not working


Hi There, This is quite a common problem with the Mackie SRM450's. You will find that you need to replace the diaphram on the top. This can be done by removing the 16 screws from the back of the Mackie (quite a long pain in the **** job) with a long handled cross head screw driver.

Once you have done this you should then remove the hex bolts from the back of the drive where the black and right terminals are. When this is done, pull off the cover and swap the diaphram out. With the new diaphram in place reverse the steps above but before you screw the back on, power it up carefully and check the sound is now working.

If the diaphram keeps going eg every 3 to 4 months then you will need to change the driver which is quite expensive to do. If you need spares and are based in the UK, contact LondonSpeakerShop.com who carry spare parts or can undertake the repair.

Hope this helps.
