Martin Audio Now Shipping New Cardioid Subwoofers

martinMartin Audio is shipping its SXCF118 and SXC115 compact, cardioid subwoofers. Purpose designed to partner the WPS and WPM line arrays respectively, these essential additions to the product portfolio are designed for both live sound reinforcement and fixed installations

The SXCF118, a flyable version of the SXC118, has been engineered to match the WPS optimized 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” (460-millimeter) forward-facing driver and a 14” (356-millimeter) rear-facing driver, each driven independently by separate amplifier channels and DSP. Each driver has its own chamber with optimized bass reflex porting. This arrangement produces a cardioid dispersion pattern which maximizes the front radiation, while reducing unwanted radiation behind the subwoofer.

The SXC115 follows similar principles and contains a 15” (380-millimeter) front-facing driver and 12” (300-millimeter) rear-facing driver, each driven, again, independently by separate amplifier channels and DSP. Each driver, similarly, has its own chamber with optimized 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.
