Martin Audio subwoofers shipping
Martin Audio’s previously announced SXCF118 and SXC115 subwoofers are now shipping.
The compact, high-performance cardioids subwoofers are purpose-designed to partner the WPS and WPM line arrays, making them essential additions to the product portfolio for both live sound reinforcement and fixed installations.
The SXCF118, a flyable version of the SXC118, has been engineered to match the WPS optimised line array system, while the ground stack SXC115 will add low frequency extension to the WPM.
The SXCF118 combines maximum low-frequency output with exceptional pattern control. It features an 18” (460mm) forward-facing driver and a 14” (356mm) rear facing driver, each driven independently by separate amplifier channels and DSP. Each driver has its own chamber with optimised bass reflex porting. This arrangement produces a cardioid dispersion pattern which maximises the front radiation, while reducing unwanted radiation behind the subwoofer.
The SXC115 follows similar principles and contains a 15” (380mm) front-facing driver and 12” (300mm) rear-facingdriver, each driven, again, independently by separate amplifier channels and DSP. Each driver, similarly, has its own chamber with optimised bass reflex porting. It is the perfect accompaniment to WPM or alternatively can be used with a pole mount for Martin Audio point source loudspeakers.
Martin Audio managing director Dom Harter says: “We are delighted to actually start shipping these innovative cardioid subwoofers to customers. Demand has been strong and our initial production run has all been allocated, but fresh order demand will start to ship from our UK factory from late February.”
