Recommended Power

The MACARIAS boast a sensitivity of 91dBs, meaning most amplifiers should be capable of driving them effectively. However, to stay on the safe side and to ensure good bass control, we do recommend pairing them with an amplifier that delivers anything above 50W. We've conducted tests with a 300B (7W) amp and found that they sound fantastic at regular listening levels in a well-treated room. It's important to note, though, that at higher listening volumes, the lower frequencies will demand more power for better control. By keeping this in mind and letting us know your intended electronics, we can help make sure your listening experience is truly extraordinary.

We aim to ensure that your experience with the MACARIAS is unparalleled in your personal space. Therefore, to achieve the absolute best sound quality, we encourage you to email us at contact@macoacoustic.comto inform us about the electronics you plan to pair with your MACARIAS. This will allow us to confirm the compatibility and ensure that your setup delivers the optimal auditory experience.

Materials and Finishes

Stone: Sculpted from a single piece of Granite or Quartz, the Stone model is the epitome of luxury. It comes standard in a natural finish; it can be polished as an upgrade for an extra luxurious touch. Quartz comes standard in white, however if you would like your Quartz baffle in a specific colour, contact us for a quote.

Acoustically, our stone models (i.e., Granite and Quartz) have the most definition. The stone’s dense mass ensures no interaction with the acoustic driver, allowing it to transform the signal into distortion-free, pristine, and detailed sound.

Thermal Treated Wood: The wood models - offered in Walnut, Ash, and Maple - exude a classic coziness and natural elegance. Our wood is thermal treated to enhance the durability and resistance. Wood MACARIAS come standard in a natural finish; gloss can be added as an upgrade.

The wood models have a warmer tone with a warmer mid-range, enriching the voices and instruments.

Birch Ply: The Birch model is formed by many layers of ply. With its beautiful natural lines, the rough finish of the Birch gives this baffle its unique raw, laid back look. It comes standard in a natural finish; gloss can be added as an upgrade. If you would like your Birch baffle in a specific colour, we can do automotive custom work to further personalize your baffle; contact us for a quote.

Sonically, while warmer than the stone models, Birch is the more neutral of the woods.

Bases

Grounded: Also called the Single Leg, the Grounded Base comes standard with the MACARIAS. This base supports the baffle closer to the ground, with isolation provided by VIABLUE™ UFO absorbers. Sitting closer to the ground, it produces a deeper bass and more bass extension.

Floating: An upgrade option, this base uses 5mm of damping compound at its connection to the baffle coupled with VIABLUE™ UFO XL absorbers in the legs. Engineered to suspend the baffle in the air, it literally makes the MACARIAS "float", reducing interaction with the floor to an absolute minimum, resulting in more defined bass and increased separation.

MACO™ DRIVERS

All MACARIAS will come standard with two 15 inch MACO™ paper cone drivers.

The final versions of the MACO™ Drivers are featured below.

FAQs

What are the sonic differences between the baffle materials?

In addition to aesthetics, each material has its own sound and personality. Every material interacts differently with sound, adding its own flavor and tonality to the music.

Overall, the wood options have a warmer tone. Solid wood has a warmer mid-range, which enriches the voices and instruments. Birch is the more neutral of the woods.

The stone models (i.e., the granite and) quartz have more definition. The stone’s dense mass ensures no interaction with the acoustic driver, allowing it to transform the signal into distortion-free, pristine, and detailed sound.

What are the sonic differences between the two base options?

The Grounded Base, which comes standard with the MACARIAS, produces a deeper bass as it sits closer to the ground.

The Floating Base, which is an upgrade, suspends the baffle in the air, reducing interaction with the floor to an absolute minimum, resulting in more defined bass and increased separation.

What is "thermal treated" wood and why did you choose to use it?

In our ongoing commitment to offering the highest quality and most durable materials, we're excited to announce that as of April 2024, our wood* baffles will now undergo thermal treatment. The thermal treatment process enhances the durability and resistance of the wood, and also deepens the color, enriching its elegance.

The ability to thermally treat our woods means that we can now offer additional wood options previously unavailable due to stability concerns. Therefore, in additional to Walnut, we are excited to introduce the MACARIA in thermally treated Ash and Maple.

*Does not include Birch Ply.

What is the ideal power and room set-up for the MACARIAS?

The MACARIAS have a sensitivity of 91dBs so most amplifiers should be able to drive them however we do recommend anything above 50W to stay safe and ensure good bass control.

We have tested them with a 300B (7W) amp, and they sound fantastic at regular listening levels in a well-treated room. Just keep in mind that at high listening levels the lower frequencies will demand more power to have better control.

We aim to ensure that your experience with the MACARIAS is unparalleled in your personal space. Therefore, to achieve the absolute best sound quality, we encourage you to email us at contact@macoacoustic.com to inform us about the electronics you plan to pair with your MACARIAS. This will allow us to confirm the compatibility and ensure that your setup delivers the optimal auditory experience.

The ideal distance from the wall for placement of the MACARIAS is 3-6ft.

What parts do you use in your crossover?

At MACO™, we never cut corners. Our crossover uses top grade components such as the humongous custom-made capacitor and inductor. We have also made sure to use minimal parts on the signal path and point-to -point connections.
