Martin Audio Announces Two High-Performance Cardioid Subwoofers

Flyable SXCF118 and SXC115 purpose designed to partner WPS and WPM line arrays

Martin Audio has announced the release of two new compact, high performance cardioid subwoofers, the SXCF118 and the SXC115, suitable for both live sound reinforcement and fixed installations.

The SXCF118 is a flyable version of the SXC118 released last year and has been purpose designed to accompany the WPS optimized line array system, while the ground stack SXC115 is set to partner 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 optimized bass reflex porting.

This arrangement produces a cardioid dispersion pattern which maximizes the front radiation, while reducing unwanted radiation behind the subwoofer. The recommended iK42 amplifier optimizes the DSP parameters for front and rear drivers to maximize the rear rejection—from 21dB at 43Hz to 28dB at 75Hz. This keeps low frequencies away from stages and walls as well as reducing reverberant energy in the room—greatly improving low frequency response accuracy and impact.

PreSonus Eris E7 XT Joins the Family

Once upon a time, there was a family of Eris who lived at PreSonus down on the Louisiana bayou. There was a great big Eris named E8 XT; a middle-sized Eris named E7 XT, who just recently joined the family; and the cher petite  E5 XT. The Eris family also had two sets of nearly identical twins: Eris E4.5 and E4.5 BT and Eris E3.5 and E3.5 BT. (The Eris family included two cousins, E44 and E66, but that’s a story for another night.) Over the years, the Eris family became very popular on the bayou and far beyond, and for good reasons.

Eris E8 XT is very powerful indeed, and his 8-inch woven composite woofer and large size results in a deep rich voice that reaches all the way down to 35 Hz. His voice is best appreciated in a moderately large studio space for those that appreciate a big bass sound. Eris E5 XT, with his 5-inch woofer, sounds great in smaller spaces, such as bedroom studios, but his voice doesn’t reach as low as the mighty E8 XT, and he might be too small to fill large studio spaces.
