New York, NY (June 7, 2019)—Martin Audio has announced WPS, the latest entry in its Wavefront Precision line array series, itself built on the technology of the company’s MLA series.
The WPS reportedly offers a peak SPL of 133 dB and is intended for providing live sound reinforcement and installations in theaters, concert halls and Houses of Worship.
WPS is a passive 3-way system which integrates a high density of drive units in a compact enclosure. It features 2 x 8” LF drivers, 4 x 4” midrange drivers and 4 x 1” exit HF compression drivers loaded by a molded HF horn which occupies the full width of the enclosure, defining the 100° horizontal constant directivity coverage pattern of both the HF and midrange sections.
The 4” midrange drivers are compression-loaded in an effort to raise efficiency and enter the horn walls via annular slots close to the HF throat to sum with the HF wavefront. In the HF section, four 1” exit compression drivers deliver high frequency sound. The 8” LF drivers are set back behind the walls of the HF horn, with a small volume of air in front of each driver in order to increase the output at the upper end of its operating range. The LF exit apertures are spaced apart horizontally to provide LF horizontal pattern control.
For extended low frequency performance, WPS is designed to be partnered with the SXC118 cardioid subwoofer and its flyable variant, SXCF118.
“Wavefront Precision has been the company’s fastest ever selling line array series,” says manging director Dom Harter, “and a significant contributing factor in Martin Audio’s rapid success over the last three years. The introduction of WPS extends the line to make it an all-powerful optimized line array family that will best serve customers around the world.”
