MARTIN AUDIO LAUNCH DD12 AT PROLIGHT+SOUND

Martin Audio adds an important loudspeaker to its comprehensive range, following the official launch of the new multi-purpose DD12 at Prolight+Sound.

The multi-purpose DD12 defines the ultimate in performance and versatility for powered, two-way loudspeaker systems. It combines onboard networking, DSP and Class D amplification with state-of-the-art transducers and Differential Dispersion™ horn technology to achieve best-in-class performance in terms of fidelity, output capability and coverage consistency across the audience.

Differential Dispersion technology delivers more consistent audience coverage than systems with conventional X° x Y° horns - providing more throw to the rear to distribute sound evenly front-to-back, while having wider close-up horizontal coverage for the front rows.

Versatility is a key attribute of the DD12. The system is designed to meet a multitude of premium stand-alone and distributed sound reinforcement requirements - from touring, theatre and portable live sound applications to concert hall and HoW installations, AV events and stage monitor use. Ideal as the main PA in small-to-medium size rooms, it can also be used as an infill loudspeaker in large-scale systems.

Whether configured as an element in a stand-alone DD12 system or part of a larger MLA/MLA Compact system, individual DD12's can be controlled and monitored from a laptop or wireless tablet PC via intuitive VU-NET proprietary software. PC connection can be made directly via USB, or via Martin Audio's proprietary U-NET network and Merlin loudspeaker and network management system.

An important feature of the DD12 is its internal memory, which allows factory 'plug-and-play' or user-generated DSP preset 'snapshots' to be recalled by means of a preset selector button on the rear panel, instead of using computer control.
In addition, comprehensive accessories support a wide variety of mounting options – including surface, ceiling and pole mount. The DD12's universal bracket facilitates a wide range of down-tilt and up-tilt angles in both portrait and landscape orientation, and can be mounted directly onto the pole of a speaker stand or attached to a scaffold clamp.

Jason Baird, R&D Director for Martin Audio, concludes, 'This market sector has been underserved from a technology and innovation point of view for far too long. DD12 will signal a true shift in fidelity, output capability and coverage and bring our Differential Dispersion™ horn technology to, quite literally, a wider audience'.
