I have had both. You can't really compare them. The Mackies have the stupid rear firing passive radiator. Placement is always tough with a nearfield, but it is an even bigger issue with the Mackies. True you have the presets on the rear for acoustic space and roll-off, but you can not place them against the wall, or in a soffit, due to the passive radiator.
The Mackies are louder, but less defined in the mid bass region. The haflers don't have the depth, frequency wise.
