Compact, Affordable True Reference Monitors

Mackie has over 20 years of experience in designing true reference monitors, and it shows. Their Creative Reference series multimedia Monitors deliver extraordinary functionality with high-quality components in a small-footprint, affordable form factor. The Mackie CR3 3″ Creative Reference Multimedia Monitors pump out 50W of clean stereo sound from two 3″ woofers and two ferrofluid-cooled 0.75″ silk tweeters, and they have a broad frequency response range of 80Hz–20KHz. You can plug your smartphone or other audio source directly into the font-panel 1/8″ TRS input and listen via headphones through the front-facing headphone jack, which automatically defeats the speaker output when employed. Audiophiles and engineers at Sweetwater love the sound quality that comes from birch cabinet construction and custom-tuned rear bass ports — not to mention the included acoustic isolation pads!

Studio-quality monitoring at an entry-level price

The Mackie CR3 3″ Creative Reference Multimedia Monitors are well-priced to suit just about any budget — but they aren’t cheap. From their birch plywood cabinets to their ferrofluid-cooled tweeters to their smooth waveguide design, the CR3s are built with high-quality components and thoughtful design. The woofers’ small size belies their low-end punch, and the silk tweeters, kept cool by ferrofluid, articulate superbly for pleasing treble frequency production. The custom-tuned rear bass ports and included acoustic isolation pads further enhance the CR3’s sound quality, minimizing bass buildup and facilitating purer waveform production throughout their entire 80Hz–20kHz range.

High-value functionality

Mackie CR series reference monitors pack heavyweight punch in a small form factor. Each pair features 1/8″ TRS input on the front and dual RCA and 1/4″ phone jack inputs on the rear panel. There’s a selector switch for determining which stereo channel (left or right) is sent to the powered speaker, so you can have it on your left or right, and the front panel’s 3.5mm headphone jack conveniently mutes the speaker output when in use. And with 50W of power pushed through the built-in waveguide design, you can expect plenty of volume and smooth, clear sound dispersion at every listening level.
