W8LMD

Three-way Mini, Vertically Arrayable Enclosure

Where to Buy or Rent

The Martin Audio W8LMD is a mini, wide-dispersion vertically arrayable enclosure. It can be used individually and in small quantities for short to medium throw applications (up to 30 metres) as well as a downfill element for the W8LM.

Features

  • Stand alone vertically arrayable enclosure
  • Line array downfill element
  • Consistent 120º (-6dB) horizontal mid and HF pattern control
  • 20º (-6dB) vertical dispersion
  • Tripod mountable singularly or in pairs
  • Amplitude shading switch
  • Passive or Bi-Amp format
  • Compatible with WMX, WLX, WSXa, WS2A & WS218 subwoofers

Applications

  • Short to medium throw arrays of 1 to 4 cabinets
  • Vertically arrayed downfill for W8LM systems
  • Theatre sound reinforcement
  • Corporate events
  • Fixed installations

Its 20° vertical dispersion requires fewer cabinets to cover the same area as a conventional line array element, yet it still benefits from the smooth, predictable coverage of a vertically coupled system.
