Audio equipment maker Mackie has announced the redesign of the MRmk line of powered studio monitors.

The MRmk3 family adds a 10-inch subwoofer, MR10Smk3 and a 6.5-inch two-way, MR6mk3.

According to Mackie, a new treat is a minimum diffraction waveguide for improved sound and directionality.

Each two-way monitor offers a polypropylene woofer and one-inch silk dome tweeter. Available woofer sizes are 5.25-inch, 6.5-inch and 8-inch. The onboard amplifiers are Class A/B with powers matched to the individual model: 50 watts for the MR5mk3; 65 watts for the MR6mk3; 85 watts for the MR8mk3 and 120 watts for the subwoofer. The sub uses a 10-inch glass composite woofer.

The two-ways also offer two-setting bass boost and boost/cut for high frequencies. Inputs include XLR, 1/4-inch TRS and RCA.

Stated frequency responses: MR5mk3 — 57 Hz–20 kHz; MR6mk3 — 46 Hz–20 kHz; MR8mk3 — 38 Hz–20 kHz; MR10Smk3 — 35–180 Hz.

Prices: MR5mk3 — $199.99; MR6mk3 — $259.99; MR8mk3 — $329.99; MR10Smk3 — $449.99.
