      Many of you may remember Dan's recent review of the SRM350 active
      loudspeakers by Mackie. But what about all of you who have already
      invested money in outboard amplifiers that you are already very
      happy with. For you Mackie has created the C300z passive loudspeaker.

      When I first entered the live music scene several years ago,
      loudspeakers were little more than wooden boxes with speakers
      installed in the front. These square and rectangular boxes worked
      fairly well in the hands of experienced sound crews and engineers
      who could afford the best equipment to get the most out of them. For
      the less experienced however, these cabinets were a breeding ground
      for resonant frequencies and standing waves that turned their sound
      into an undesirable mush. With much effort and experimentation with
      placement, most were able to get results they could live with.

      While newer speakers and electronics were developed over the years,
      the problems with the cabinet designs were for the most part
      ignored. That was until Mackie introduced their line of injection
      molded polypropylene speaker enclosures. It has been my experience
      that Mackie does not approach a problem from only one direction, but
      they tend to innovate on several angles at a once. This is achieved
      by hiring people who use and therefore understand firsthand the
      problems associated with most loudspeakers and work hard to solve
      these issues. This was especially true with the C300z passive
      loudspeakers.
