Martin Audio SXCF118 and SXC115 Now Shipping

FOH Staff • New Gear • February 3, 2021

Martin Audio announced that its new SXCF118 and SXC115 compact cardioid subwoofers are now shipping.

More details from Martin Audio (www.martin-audio.com):

Purpose designed to partner the WPS and WPM line arrays respectively, these essential additions to the product portfolio are suitable 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” (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 SXC115 follows similar principles and contains a 15” (380mm) front facing driver and 12” (300mm) 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.

Stated Martin Audio MD, Dom Harter, “We are delighted to actually start shipping these innovative cardioid subwoofers to customers. Demand has been strong and our initial production run has all been allocated, but fresh order demand will start to ship from our UK factory from late February.”
