High Wycombe, UK – November 2020. Martin Audio has announced that it has now started shipping the ADORN series ceiling loudspeakers to Europe and North America (following the first shipments to the APAC territories in September). The extension to the popular new installation series, which brings class-leading performance, reliability and value to a wide range of installations, was first announced back in February this year.
Along with the ceiling speakers—an area of the commercial sound installation sector in which Martin Audio has always excelled—is the availability of the company’s first ever pendant speaker, which comes in black or white as standard.
Featuring Martin Audio’s signature sound characteristics, the ADORN in-ceiling series is the perfect choice for background and foreground systems which require superior sound quality from visually discreet, ultra-compact enclosures. They also provide a seamless sonic transition within a multi-zone complex using larger Martin Audio systems such as CDD or BlacklineX.
All the new ceiling models have a nominal impedance of 16 ohms, enabling four or more speakers to be driven in parallel by one amplifier channel, thereby maximising efficiency and minimising cost. The new ceiling additions are also fitted with an internal high-quality 70V/100V multi-tap line transformer with a switch to select the output level. For full-bandwidth protection, the low and high frequency sections are individually protected against overload in all models.
Comprising a 4” (100mm) LF driver and a 0.75” (19mm) silk-dome tweeter, the ACS-40TS in-ceiling speaker produces 108dB peak output at 1 metre and its ported design delivers strong bass that extends down to 73Hz. The very wide 180° conical coverage of the ACS-40TS makes it particularly suitable for low ceilings and reduces the number of speakers required for even coverage — leading to a reduction in installation cost. It features a shallow backcan for installation in ceilings with a minimum cavity depth.
Featuring a 5.25” (100mm) LF driver and a 0.75” (19mm) silk-dome tweeter, the ACS-55TS in-ceiling speaker produces 113dB peak output at 1 metre and its ported design delivers strong bass that extends down to 79Hz. The wide 150° conical coverage of the ACS-55TS makes it particularly suitable for low ceilings and it features a shallow backcan for installation in ceilings with a minimum cavity depth.
The in-ceiling ACS-55T comprises a 5.25” (100mm) LF driver and a 0.75” (19mm) silk-dome tweeter, produces 113dB peak output at 1 metre and its ported bass reflex design and backcan with generous internal volume maximises low frequency output and delivers strong bass that extends down to 62Hz. It also features a wide 150° conical coverage.
Finally, the ACP-55T pendant speaker features a 5.25” (100mm) LF driver and a 0.75” (19mm) silk-dome tweeter, produces 109dB peak output at 1 metre and delivers superb sound quality for both music and speech reproduction. Its stylish pendant enclosure is equipped with a single-point mounting system plus provision for attaching a safety cable, and also features a wide 150° conical coverage.
Stated Martin Audio MD, Dom Harter, “We’re excited to be continuing shipment of these additions to the ADORN range, which is already becoming a firm favourite of commercial installs. Our considered strategy of shipping first to the APAC region, to take advantage of expansion opportunities in those territories, is already paying off, and we are now ready to focus on our European and North American hubs.”
