WPL is a full-scale line array which is capable of exceptionally high output for its modest size and weight. A three-way, bi-amped system, its very high output is achieved by utilising Martin Audio’s trademark horn-loading technology across all frequency bands — increasing the acoustic output of the low frequency section, as well as the midrange and HF.
It incorporates 2 x 12” (300mm) drivers with Hybrid® horn/reflex loading, 2 x 6.5” (165mm) cone drivers on a midrange horn which covers the vocal frequency range from 300Hz to 4kHz, and 3 x 1” (25mm) exit HF drivers operating from 4kHz upwards. Each section features innovative horn-loading techniques and refinements which raise the acoustic performance of WPL to a superior level — both in terms of output and smooth 90° horizontal coverage patterns of the mid and HF horns. Sonically, WPL’s exemplary horizontal dispersion pattern translates to an incredibly consistent frequency response off-axis, with minimal variation from the on-axis response.
The maximum peak outputs of the LF, Mid and HF sections are 139dB, 140dB and 145dB per enclosure @ 1m and 6dB crest factor, respectively — ensuring that a WPL array will meet the most demanding requirements for throw and clarity in the largest venues and outdoor events.
