––New self-powered portable range builds on BlacklineX popularity––

High Wycombe, UK–– Designed to set a new benchmark for full-bandwidth, high definition portable audio at a user-friendly price point, Martin Audio has announced BlacklineX Powered, bringing new active options to the award-winning BlacklineX family.

Comprising the 12-inch XP12 and 15-inch XP15 full range enclosures plus the compact but powerful 18-inch XP118 subwoofer, BlacklineX Powered integrates acoustic, DSP and amplifier technologies to achieve the clarity, precision and richness of tone that audio professionals will recognize as uniquely Martin Audio. The range’s debut––spurred by customer demand––follows the international success of the passive BlacklineX Series of portable enclosures, now officially the fastest-selling portable series in Martin Audio’s 48-year history.

In addition, BlacklineX Powered offers optional Bluetooth control, streaming and a built-in three channel mixer, placing increased flexibility and features within easy reach of every user – from live venues, DJs and corporate events to permanent installs, particularly houses of worship. Users will also recognize the road-ready construction, quick set-up and adaptability of this range developed by one of pro audio’s founding brands.

“BlacklineX was the first series the team developed and launched after I became Managing Director,” recalls Martin Audio MD, Dom Harter. “It’s become the fastest selling portable series the company has ever launched and a significant contributing factor in Martin Audio’s rapid success over the last three years. The introduction of a self-powered series makes perfect sense and by leveraging our engineers’ expertise in acoustic, DSP and amplifier technologies, we have crafted a very forward-looking portable range with a classic Martin Audio sound.”

BlacklineX Powered will begin shipping worldwide in July 2019and will be featuredas part of Martin Audio’s presentation at InfoComm 2019, taking place in booth 6743 and audio demo room W224C, from June 12-14 at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida.
