The speaker manufacturer has added to its BlacklineX series

Extending the manufacturer’s BlacklineX series, Martin Audio has unveiled the X218 subwoofer and the XH15 passive two-way system, designed for the club and entertainment markets. The X218 is a dual-driver, high-performance subwoofer with an operating range of 42Hz to 200Hz (+3dB). It produces 141dB peak SPL (half space) with low distortion and can be used singly or stacked horizontally. It features dual 18-inch/4-inch voice coil, long-excursion drivers in a reflex enclosure with eight large ports to reduce air turbulence at high output levels. The X218 is fitted with a 35mm pole-mount socket for mounting BlacklineX full-range enclosures, while integral M10 inserts provide for eyebolt suspension of a single enclosure.

The high-power Blackline XH15 has been designed to improve the performance of the existing Blackline X15 in a wide-bandwidth system. Extended frequency response is provided by a 15-inch LF driver and a 1.4-inch exit compression driver mounted on a rotatable 80˚ x 50˚ constant directivity HF horn. The LF driver features a water-resistant cone and a lightweight, high BL, neodymium motor system with inside/outside coil windings for improved heat transfer. An aluminium demodulating ring reportedly reduces distortion and improves midrange clarity at high levels.


Staying with the entertainment market, Martin Audio has also launched the S.Series passive two-way systems. The enclosures feature a user-rotatable horn for vertical or horizontal orientation and multiple M8 threaded inserts. The trapezoid enclosures are braced internally to reduce panel resonances and improve sonic performance and are finished in a textured black paint, with drivers protected by a perforated steel grille. Rear ports couple the low-frequency output to walls or the ceiling, while the LF drivers have demodulating rings to reportedly provide clear, distortion-free vocal reproduction, even at high SPLs.

The S.10 is a compact, two-way passive loudspeaker with a 10-inch/2.5-inch voice coil, LF driver and a 1-inch exit HF compression driver with a 1.4-inch polyimide diaphragm. The S.12 is a two-way system featuring a 12-inch/2.5-inch voice coil LF driver unit and a 1-inch exit compression driver with a 1.4-inch polyimide diaphragm on a rotatable 80° x 50° HF horn. Finally, the S.15 features a 15-inch/3-inch voice coil LF drive unit and a 1-inch exit HF compression driver with a 1.75-inch polyimide diaphragm for extended high-frequency response.
