Today, Martin Audio enjoys an international reputation for supplying superb professional loudspeaker systems across the spectrum of touring, theatre and installation applications. Since 2008 Martin Audio systems have been deployed every year on the main stage at Glastonbury festival, the largest green-field music and performing arts festival in the world!

Martin Audio LE Series stage monitors have always set the standard for touring and stage applications. LE series monitors utilise differential dispersion horn technology to define a high frequency coverage footprint that is particularly useful for stage monitor applications.

The LE700 is a large format two-way, bi-amp, stage monitor for live sound applications. The wedge shape cabinet houses a bass reflex loaded 15″ LF driver and a 1.4″ HF compression driver mounted on a differential dispersion horn. These work together to provide a flat frequency response from 60Hz upto 15kHz at ±3dB. The system can be powered with 750W programme and provides a powerful output with maximum SPL of 123dB continuos and 129dB peak.

The Blackline F215 is a two-way passive, trapezoidal enclosure with dual 15″ (380mm)/3″ (75mm) Voice coil low frequency drivers and a 1.4″ (35mm) exit titanium diaphragm compression driver, mounted on a rotatable 80° x 50° constant directivity horn. Below 250Hz, both LF drivers operate together to produce low frequencies, whilst above 250Hz, only the upper LF driver is used to reproduce the midrange up to the crossover point. This technique avoids the uneven response which would occur if both drivers were allowed to operate together over the mid-band. The Blackline F215 can be used as a stand-alone full range system and is the ideal choice for drum monitors and side-fill applications.

Wavefront series systems are tailormade for professional sound reinforcement. Applications include a wide variety of stand-alone or distributed sound requirements, from theatre, cabaret, festivals and nightclubs to churches and AV presentations.

The qualities of the Wavefront W2 have established its success as a powerful stand-alone system. This switchable active/passive two-way cabinet uses specialist high power drive units to achieve maximum SPL’s from a very compact enclosure. It combines smooth, dynamic full frequency performance with exceptional articulation for a portable stand- alone system. Designed to meet the industry requirement for a 12″ (300mm) driver plus horn configuration, Martin Audio’s version is more refined for superior, professional results. Where additional low frequency extension is required, the W2 system may be complimented with the WS18X

The award-winning Wavefront W8C is lightweight and compact. It can be rigged quickly to deliver outstanding power and performance in smaller configurations than was previously possible with other loudspeakers. Audience experience is enhanced by true musicality, warmth and intelligibility – even at high SPL’s.

Ground-breaking three-way technology marries a low-mid horn-loaded 12″ (300mm) cone drive unit with a unique combination of 6.5″ (165mm) high-mid driver loaded by toroidal phase plug and horn plus a 1″ (25mm) exit HF device, optimised for very high frequencies.

The Wavefront W8CS is a stunning powerhouse of high efficiency horn-loaded bass in a compact flying enclosure to match the W8C. Its unique port assisted, folded-horn design combines high efficiency and characteristic bass impact with the LF extension of a reflex enclosure.

The W8CS can either be used as the sole source of low frequencies in a W8C system or may be used in conjunction with WS218X ground stacked subwoofers in arena systems and flown as part of the main W8C array. It features a very high power 800 watt 15″ (380mm) driver with magnet structure and suspensions optimised for large linear excursion. The folded-horn loading results in an efficiency typically 5dB greater than direct radiator bass systems. In addition, output below the horn cut-off frequency is achieved by venting the drive unit chamber via a unique Linear Flow‰ port, which provides low frequency extension with reduced distortion and air-noise. The dimensions of the W8CS are identical to the W8C allowing it to be flown with the same rigging arrangements.
