Martin Audio Debuts New Flyable 15” Subwoofer for Wavefront Precision

The ideal companion for Wavefront Precision, Martin Audio's new ultra-compact SXF115 flyable passive subwoofer is capable of 136dB at one meter.

Martin Audio has added to its impressive subwoofer line up with the introduction of SXF115--a passive subwoofer featuring a powerful, long-excursion 15" (380mm)/4" (100mm) voice coil driver in an ultra-compact bass reflex enclosure, capable of 136dB at 1 meter.


The ideal companion for Martin Audio's new Wavefront Precision Mini (WPM) optimized line array, it can extend the performance down to 42Hz and can be flown as part of an array or ground-stacked separately. Cardioid operation can be achieved by arranging the SXF115 in forward and rear-facing pairs.

The design of the 15" driver maximizes output while minimizing power compression and distortion, and four reflex ports reduce air noise at very high output levels. The SXF115 enclosure is constructed from multi-laminate birch ply, finished with a durable polyurethane coating and equipped with a perforated steel grille, skids and twin bar handles. An M20 threaded fitting in the top surface facilitates pole-mounting of up to four WPM or MLA Mini enclosures.

Managing Director, Dom Harter, commented, "Wavefront Precision line arrays have sold very successfully and across more varied applications than initially expected. With that has come demand for additional subwoofer solutions. We recently added the high output SXH218 for WPC and now we're pleased to introduce for WPM the flyable SXF115. The SXF115 is also compatible with MLA Mini in fixed installations where ground-based, rack-mount amplification is preferred, so we expect to see very healthy sales of this sub."

SXF115 will ship from May 2018.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
