Waterloo, Ontario, Canada (December 6, 2006)–The WS218X high-performance sub-bass system has been released by Martin Audio, conceived to provide “maximum bass impact and definition for theater sound systems, club sound reinforcement and special effects sub-bass applications.”
Designed for use with Martin’s large-scale Wavefront and Blackline systems, the WS218X features twin 1,000-watt, 18-inch (460mm) drivers spec’d as capable of reproducing low frequencies down to 35 Hz. Each driver employs a magnet structure and suspension engineered for maximum linear excursion along with high-temperature, 4-inch (100mm) voice coils.
The WS218X produces a high power output of 136 dB continuous and 142 dB peak. The birch-ply cabinet is fitted with six pocket handles and four 4-inch (100mm) castors for easy deployment. It also features large area porting to reportedly reduce air noise.
