The Blackline X12 fulfils the requirement for a compact system that can deliver high sound levels — either as a stand-alone system or sup-plemented by a BlacklineX subwoofer. Featuring a 12” (300mm) LF driver unit and a 1” (25mm) exit compression driver on a user-rotatable horn, its 80° x 50° dispersion pattern is ideal for medium throw applications.

Features

  • Compact passive two-way system
  • Symmetrical multi-angle plywood enclosure
  • User-rotatable 80° x 50° horn
  • Vertical and horizontal orientation
  • Screw-free, cloth-backed perforated steel grille
  • Integral ergonomic handle
  • Pole-mount bung maintains clean lines
  • 8Ω nominal impedance
  • Twin NL4 connectors
  • Flexible mounting options via M8 inserts

Applications

  • Portable sound reinforcement
  • Live music clubs
  • Bars and restaurants
  • Nightclubs
  • Unobtrusive stage monitoring
  • Corporate AV events and conferences
  • Weddings and parties
  • Main PA infill
  • Secondary stages at festivals
  • HoW, leisure centres and retail outlets

The Blackline X12 LF driver has a 2.5” (63mm) voice coil and a high BL motor, while the HF compression driver utilises a 1.75” (44mm) poly-imide diaphragm for extended high frequency response. Use with a BlacklineX Series subwoofer will enable the X12 to operate as a dancefloor or sound reinforcement system that is remarkably powerful for its size, as well as being extremely portable.

The X12 is constructed from plywood and fitted with a screw-free steel grille, M8 inserts for wall brackets and eyebolt suspension, plus a pole-mount socket with a removable bung that maintains clean lines in install applications. Finished in black textured paint as standard, the X12 can also be supplied in white or any RAL colour to order.

A full-range passive two-way system, the X12 may be used without a controller. However, the EQ and limiter functions of a controller such as the Martin Audio DX0.5 will maximise its capabilities. When used in conjunction with an X115, X118 or X210 subwoofer, crossover and EQ functions can be performed by the DX0.5, or by an MA Series [Electronics] amplifier with onboard DSP option.

Architectural Specifications

The loudspeaker shall be a passive, two-way system. Its transducers shall consist of a reflex-loaded 12” low frequency driver and a 1.7” diaphragm/1” exit compression driver mounted on a high frequency horn which shall be user-rotatable to enable vertical or horizontal orientation of the enclosure.

Horizontal dispersion shall be 80° and vertical dispersion shall be 50°. The on-axis frequency response shall be 62Hz-20kHz +/- 3dB and the loudspeaker shall produce a maximum SPL of 128dB peak calculated at 1 metre. Power handling shall be 300W AES, 1200W peak. Rated impedance shall be 8 ohms.

The rear connector panel shall be fitted with two NL4 type connectors. Low and high frequency sections shall be integrated by an internal 2.3kHz passive network. For optimal performance the loudspeaker shall be operated in conjunction with a dedicated electronic controller.

The symmetrical, multi-angle enclosure shall be made from plywood and finished with a black textured paint. Optional white and RAL colour finishes shall be available to special order. The enclosure shall be fitted with a pole-mount socket and M8 threaded inserts to accommodate eyebolt suspension and a wall bracket. The drivers shall be protected by a perforated steel grille with scrim cloth backing.

Dimensions (W x H x D) shall be 358mm x 574mm x 337mm (14.1in x 22.6in x 13.7in). Weight shall be 17kg (37.5lbs).

The loudspeaker shall be the Martin Audio Blackline X12.
