Frankfurt, Germany (April 14, 2017)—In amongst a slew of new products, Martin Audio unveiled its new XE Series stage monitors at this year’s Prolight + Sound Show in Frankfurt.
The XE Series sports low-profile enclosures with Martin’s own Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology and a patent pending third static waveguide. The XE300 (1 x 12” LF) and XE500 (1 x 15” LF) are intended to provide a defined coverage pattern that allows the artist freedom of movement, while reducing overlap with adjacent monitors.
The XE series is designed as a complete system and is partnered with the new iKON 4-channel amplifier.
Jason Baird, R&D Director, offered, “XE changes the game with the introduction of high performance Coaxial Differential Dispersion drivers with an additional contour-molded static third waveguide that increases the size of the HF horn mouth to maintain pattern control over a wide frequency band and avoid spill outside the coverage area. Its rolled contour reduces diffraction and further improves pattern consistency at the lower end of the HF passband. “
