At this year’s Prolight + Sound Show in Frankfurt, Martin Audio unveiled its new CDD-LIVE! Series.
Comprising three full-range models and two subwoofers, CDD-LIVE! covers practically all professional stand-alone and distributed applications — from sound reinforcement and monitoring for live bands, DJ’s and corporate events, to installations in dance clubs, ballrooms, theatres and performing arts centres.
At the heart of the series is Martin Audio’s patented Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology. Combining the ‘point-source’ benefits of coaxial design with the consistent coverage of Differential Dispersion, CDD-LIVE! full-range systems project sound evenly front-to-back while exhibiting wide horizontal coverage close to the speaker — delivering ultimate fidelity and impact to all corners of the audience.
Onboard Class D amplification, DSP and Dante Digital Audio networking assure simplicity of stage set-up and efficient installation, while tour-grade enclosures and comprehensive mounting options — including pole mount, wall brackets, yokes and rigging inserts — provide maximum flexibility in deployment.
Dom Harter, the recently appointed managing director of Martin Audio, said: “Until now, most industry self-powered portable loudspeakers have been underpowered, light-duty systems or very high-end systems out of reach of many users. Now, with the multi-purpose CDD-LIVE! Series, Martin Audio brings everything rental companies, system integrators and musicians require from a self-powered loudspeaker at a commercially sensible price.”
Harter continued: “This will mean that rental companies can offer efficient and exemplary coverage, delivering rapid ROI, while system integrators will be able to offer more competitive tenders and win more business.”
