Service for the SA1521 is available only
from one of our authorized domestic ser-
vice stations or at the factory service center
located in Whitinsville, Massachusetts.
Service outside the United States can be ob-
tained through local dealers or distributors.
If your SA1521 needs service, please fol-
low these instructions:
1. Review the preceding troubleshooting
2. Call Mackie Tech Support at 1-800-
898-3211, 7 AM to 5 PM PST, to
explain the problem in detail. They will
ask you all sorts of impertinent ques-
tions in the hope of sorting out the
problem. If it appears that the SA1521
needs repair, request an RA (Return
Authorization) number. Have your
loudspeaker's serial number ready. You
must have an RA number before you
can obtain service at the factory or an
authorized service center.
3. Keep this user's manual and the detach-
able linecord. We don't need them to
repair the loudspeaker.
4. Pack the loudspeaker in its original
packaging, including protective wrap,
endcaps, and box. This is very impor-
tant. When you call for the RA number,
please let Tech Support know if you
need new packaging. LOUD Technolo-
gies is not responsible for any damage
that occurs due to non-factory packaging.
