Signature sound, clever convenience. The Mackie CR8-XBT 8'' Multimedia Monitor Speakers take the world-renowned performance of Mackie's CR series and injects it with even more functionality. Whether you're a musician, content creator, gamer, or you just love listening to music and care about sound quality. The CR-X series has been built with you in mind.
Experience studio-quality sound without the hassle of additional hardware, complex routing, and sophisticated setup procedures. With an easy-to-use design that doesn't compromise on quality, the CR8-XBT monitors let you plug-in and listen with phenomenal clarity and depth from the get-go. And with handy Bluetooth connectivity, you can stream and control your sound wirelessly from the palm of your hand.
Built with convenience and flexibility in mind, these high-performance speakers can be adapted to suit your needs. Want to listen in silence? Simply plug your headphones into the front 3.5mm headphone output. Want to swap the powered speaker to the other side? A switch on the rear panel lets you do that. And with plenty of connectivity options to choose from, you can connect a wide variety of sound sources in seconds.
The sound you've been looking for
Musician? Producer? Content creator? Gamer? Whatever you do, you want to be able to hear your sound with the clarity, depth and power it deserves. And with the Mackie CR8-XBT Multimedia Monitor Speakers, that's exactly what you can do. With a high-performance design consisting of a powered speaker and a passive speaker, each with an 8'' woofer and 0.75'' tweeter, you can hear every detail of your sound with outstanding definition.
The powered speaker simply links to the passive one using the included cable. A convenient switch on the back lets you choose which side your powered speaker is placed (Left or Right), so you can adapt your speakers to suit your positional needs with ease.
Once you've got your speakers positioned and connected, you can plug in your sound sources in one of four ways - left and right 1/4'' TRS connectors, left and right RCA connectors, an 1/8'' (3.5mm) stereo mini-jack, or wirelessly via Bluetooth. Every connector can be found on the rear panel of your powered speaker, keeping cables out of your way for a tidy workspace.
But that's not all. On the front of your powered speaker, you'll find a handy 1/8'' (3.5mm) stereo headphone output. When you plug your headphones into this port, the audio output of your speakers is defeated, so you can listen without disturbing your neighbours or others in your house. The overall volume of your speakers can be controlled from the front panel of the powered speaker too, giving you complete control over your levels without having to strain yourself reaching around to the back panel.
Wireless audio streaming
If you have a Bluetooth-enabled device that can play music, you can stream your sound directly to your monitors without being tied down by cables. Stream and control your sound from your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or other device, and enjoy every detail with that signature CR series sound quality.
