New York, NY (February 12, 2019)—Martin Audio has announced its latest optimized line array, expanding its Wavefront Precision Series with the introduction of a new Longbow edition.
The overall Wavefront Precision Series, first introduced in 2017, presents Martin Audio’s self-powered MLA Series systems in a new line array format with a scalable approach to external system amplification.
Now the Wavefront Precision Longbow (WPL) now brings that approach to large-scale touring and installation applications. Designed as a complete system with external iKON multi-channel amplifiers, automated DISPLAY optimization software and the VU-NET control platform, WPL is intended for traditional touring and install sound projects, ranging from stadium and arena tours to sizable House of Worship installations.
WPL incorporates 2 x 12” (300 mm) drivers with Hybrid horn/reflex loading, 2 x 6.5” (165 mm) cone drivers on a midrange horn which covers the vocal frequency range from 300 Hz to 4 kHz, and 3 x 1” (25 mm) exit HF drivers operating from 4 kHz upwards. WPL’s horizontal dispersion pattern is intended to provide consistent frequency response off-axis, with minimal variation from the on-axis response.
The maximum peak outputs of the LF, Mid and HF sections are 139 dB, 140 dB and 145 dB per enclosure at 1 meter and 6 dB crest factor respectively.
WPL is shipping, and systems having already been delivered to multiple US customers, according to Martin Audio.
