The XP12 and XP15 are self-powered, portable, two-way systems

Martin Audio has added to its BlacklineX family with the 12-inch XP12 and 15-inch XP15 full-range enclosures and the 18-inch XP118 subwoofer to form the BlacklineX Powered series. The products offer optional Bluetooth control, streaming and a built-in, three-channel mixer to reportedly provide increased flexibility and features for live venues, DJs and corporate events to permanent installs, particularly houses of worship.

The XP12 and XP15 are self-powered, portable, two-way systems with 1,300W Class-D amplification. They have on-board DSP with a rotary control interface along with three-band channel EQ, independent LF and HF peak and RMS limiters. A user-rotatable 80° x 50° horn and vertical and horizontal mounting options are also featured. The enclosures are constructed from plywood and finished with a hard-wearing textured paint. Cloth-backed perforated steel grilles protect the drivers from damage and dust ingress. The XP118 extends the low-frequency operating range of the combined system down to 42Hz and can be used singly, stacked in omni or cardioid mode, or flown via integral M10 insets. It is a self-powered sub with an 18-inch driver, 4-inch voice coil and 2,000W Class-D amplification.


In other news, Martin Audio has added the fourth model to its Wavefront Precision optimised line array series. The WPS is a passive three-way system that integrates a high density of drive units in a very compact enclosure. It features two 8-inch LF drivers, four 4-inch midrange drivers and four 1-inch exit HF compression drivers loaded by a moulded HF horn that occupies the full width of the enclosure, defining the 100° horizontal constant directivity coverage pattern of both the HF and midrange sections.

The 4-inch midrange drivers are compression-loaded to raise efficiency and enter the horn walls via annular slots close to the HF throat to sum effectively with the HF wavefront. The four 1-inch compression drivers reportedly deliver high-frequency sound without the harshness and distortion of larger-format devices. The 8-inch LF drivers are set back behind the walls of the HF horn, with a small volume of air in front of each driver increasing the output at the upper end of its operating range. The LF exit apertures are spaced apart horizontally to provide LF horizontal pattern control.
