How do u tell the diff btween V1 & V2

Post by bassface » 29 Mar 2018, 11:58

Hi all im looking to buy a small powered PA system and ive come across a pair
of Mackie SRM450 powered monitors at the right price and location
problem is i don't want the Vers 1 because they are notorious for
overheating and cutting out where as the Vers 2 supposedly fixed that issue
(Whew!) my question is how do i tell the difference between them; there are cosmetic changes between them
but i dont know what to look for.


anybody help? Thanks

there is a version 3 now as well. I'd email Mackie support. You say there are cosmetic differences? look at pics of each version to try and spot a difference. There may be something printed on the back as well

EDIT: it seems on the back where the controls are the model number is prominent with the version in a circle next to it
