The CDD5 is a two-way passive micro speaker designed for discreet positioning in architectural installations — including bars, museums, foyers, concourses, exhibition centres and HoW. It features a unique, patent-pending 5” (125mm) LF/0.7” (19mm) HF Coaxial Differential Dispersion driver in a rigid ABS moulded enclosure and is supplied with a dedicated omni-directional mounting bracket.

Features

  • Ultra-compact, CDD™ passive two-way system
  • Coaxial Differential Dispersion™ technology
  • Elegant ABS moulded enclosure
  • User-rotatable coaxial drive unit
  • Vertical and horizontal mounting options
  • Screw-free perforated steel grille
  • 8Ω nominal impedance
  • Discreet mounting accessories
  • Black or white standard colour options
  • 70V/100V line transformer option

Applications

  • Bars and Restaurants
  • Museums and AV Spaces
  • Convention Centres
  • Hotels
  • Retail Outlets
  • Leisure Centres
  • Houses of Worship

The Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology employed in the CDD5 delivers more consistent audience coverage than systems with fixed X° x Y° coverage patterns — projecting relatively more output to the rear of the audience to distribute sound evenly front-to-back, while having wide horizontal coverage close-up. Its innovative CDD driver achieves ‘point source’ summation of the LF and HF sections — eliminating off-axis variations in frequency response in the crossover region associated with non-coaxial designs.

The visually-distinctive enclosure can be used in either horizontal (landscape) or vertical (portrait) orientation, with rotation of the driver easily accomplished by removing the screw-free, protective grille. The curved shape of the enclosure allows it to be surface-mounted close to a wall or ceiling by means of the supplied omni-directional bracket or an optional close-mount ceiling bracket.

Finished in black (RAL9005) or white (RAL9016) as standard, the CDD5 can be supplied in any RAL colour to order.

The CDD5TX-WR option incorporates a 70V/100V line transformer.

A full-range, passive two-way system, the CDD5 may be used without a controller. However, the EQ and limiter functions of a controller such as the Martin Audio DX0.5, DX1.5 or DX2, or an MA Series amplifier with onboard DSP will maximise its capabilities.

When used with a CSX subwoofer, crossover and EQ functions can either be performed by the DX0.5, DX1.5 or DX2 system controllers, or by an MA Series amplifier with onboard DSP option.

Architectural Specifications

The loudspeaker shall be a passive, two-way system ultilising Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology. Its transducers shall consist of a reflex-loaded 5.25” low frequency driver and a coaxially-mounted 0.75” dome high frequency driver loaded by a static waveguide that merges with moving waveguides added to the cone of the low frequency driver to define the HF horn geometry.

The coaxial driver shall be user-rotatable to enable vertical or horizontal operation as required by the application. Horizontal dispersion shall vary from 120° to 90° and vertical dispersion shall be 80°. The on-axis frequency response shall be 100Hz-20kHz +/- 3dB and the loudspeaker shall produce a maximum SPL of 116dB peak calculated at 1 metre. Power handling shall be 100W AES, 400W peak. Rated impedance shall be 8 ohms.

The input connector shall be a low-profile 13A push-lock type. Low and high frequency sections shall be integrated by an internal 2.5kHz passive network. For optimal performance the loudspeaker shall be operated in conjunction with a dedicated electronic controller.

The enclosure shall be made from ABS material and fitted with threaded inserts for wall and ceiling mounting. The drivers shall be protected by a perforated steel grille with scrim cloth backing.

Dimensions (W x H x D) shall be 160mm x 230mm x 149mm (6.3in x 9.1in x 5.9in). Weight shall be 2.7kg (6lbs).

The loudspeaker shall be the Martin Audio CDD5.
