New York, NY (August 10, 2012)—Audio providers Capital Sound and MHA Audio both recently chose Martin Audio’s Multi-cellular Loudspeaker Array system for the companies’ various live events.
Capital Sound is a British rental company that designs sound stages for bands including Take That, The Killers and Stereophonics. “Unlike line arrays, MLA calculates and controls each individual transducer throughout the array to create a uniform sound field across the length and breadth of the audience area,” said Capital Sound technical manager Ian Colville. “Parameters that have traditionally been difficult to predict and control—SPL variation, frequency response and coverage cut-off—can be accurately defined in the prediction software and re-calculated, if necessary, ‘on the fly.’”

As part of the growth of MHA Audio, a professional sound system and production management provider, the company purchased the MLA System 36 (24 MLA enclosures and 12 MLX subwoofers) to fulfill the company’s busy schedule of live events. “MHA Audio is excited to offer the MLA System to our clients. The MLA’s ability to create a uniform response through the listening area, control coverage and its unparalleled sonic quality sets a new standard of excellence in professional audio far beyond anything that is currently available,” said MLA owner Mike Scarfe.
