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.
