The CDD5TX-WR is a weatherised two-way passive micro speaker incorporating a 70V/100V line transformer and designed for discreet positioning in architectural installations — including bars, museums, foyers, concourses, exhibition centres and HoW as well as outdoor applications where it will be subject to changing environmental conditions, but sheltered from direct exposure to the elements. It features a unique, patent-pending 5” (125mm) LF/0.7” (19mm) HF Coaxial Differential Dispersion driver in a rigid ABS moulded enclosure with a dual cable gland for easy daisy-chaining of cabinets without the need for external breakout boxes and is supplied with a dedicated omni-directional mounting weather resistant bracket.

The Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology employed in the CDD5TX-WR 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. Improving on conventional coaxial designs, which can suffer from high-frequency beaming, the driver features a static waveguide that merges seamlessly with the unique cone shape — maintaining the dispersion pattern out to very high frequencies.

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.

CDD5TX-WR features a water and particle resistant grille made from zinc plated mild steel with powder coated finish and is suitable for operating temperatures between -20°C to +70°C and environmentally tested to meet IP54.

Finished in black (RAL9005) or white (RAL9016) as standard.

A full-range, passive two-way system, the CDD5TX-WR 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 with a water-resistant cone and a coaxially-mounted 0.75” dome high frequency driver. The HF driver shall be 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 with a waterproof cover incorporating a dual cable gland. 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 with stainless steel screws for wall and ceiling mounting. The drivers shall be protected by a powder coated, zinc plated steel grille with Declon® backing and a secondary grille with hydrophobic mesh. The loudspeaker shall meet the IP54 environmental rating and incorporate a 70V/100V line transformer.

Dimensions (W x H x D) shall be 160mm x 230mm x 149mm (6.3in x 9.1in x 5.9in). Weight shall be 3.4kg (7.5lbs).

The loudspeaker shall be the Martin Audio CDD5TX-WR.
