The XE300 is the definitive, high-performance compact monitor. It features a high-specification 12” (300mm) LF /1.4” exit HF Coaxial Differential Dispersion driver to deliver perfect sound over the artist’s listening plane. The LF driver section has a 3” (75mm) voice coil and efficient motor with an aluminium demodulating ring to minimise distortion, while the HF driver utilises a 1.4” (35mm) exit HF compression driver with a 3” (75mm) pure titanium diaphragm.
- Very high-SPL, compact two-way stage monitor
- Coaxial ‘point source’ performance
- Differential Dispersion™ technology for consistent coverage
- Defined, rectangular coverage plane at head-height
- Complete system with iK42 for consistent high performance
- Visually-appealing, low-profile plywood enclosures
- Built-in risers for steeper monitor angle when required
- Side panel rubber feet for extra protection when up-ended
- Easy to carry and manoeuvre
- M8 rigging inserts
- Stage monitor
Its unique Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology produces a horizontal coverage pattern which varies from 60° when the performer is directly over the monitor, narrowing to 30° further back. This narrowing delivers a near-rectangular coverage plane at head-height to maintain the sound level and balance independent of distance from the monitor.
The XE300 enclosure is constructed from multi-laminate birch ply, with integral ergonomic handles and finished with a hard-wearing paint. A strong, perforated steel grille with an acoustically transparent cloth backing provides protection for the Coaxial Differential Dispersion driver, while moulded feet on the base prevent movement onstage with additional rubber feet on the side panels providing added protection if the monitor is upended when carrying.
Frontal reflex ports couple with the floor to increase LF output and inbuilt risers can be used to increase the monitoring angle for longer-throw applications.
XE Series monitors are designed as a complete system with the iK42 4-channel Class D Amplifier, offering a unique combination of power and audio performance seamlessly combined with advanced DSP, proprietary VU-NET™ software control and Dante™ digital audio networking. State of the art components and a finely optimised design results in generous power reserves that ensures pristine sound quality is maintained even under the most extreme conditions. As well as maximising the capability of the monitor, this ensures that the monitor engineer and artist can be confident that they will experience this same high level of consistent performance from an XE monitor anywhere in the world.
Martin Audio XE300
The loudspeaker shall be a two-way system ultilising Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology and shall be operated in conjunction with a dedicated controller amplifier.
Its transducers shall consist of a reflex-loaded 12” low frequency driver and a coaxially-mounted 1.4” exit high frequency compression 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. A third static waveguide shall increase the effective size of the horn mouth.
Low and high frequency sections shall be integrated by an internal 1.1kHz passive network or an external active crossover. Passive or active operation shall be selected by a switch on the input panel. Input connectors shall be NL4 type.
Horizontal dispersion shall vary from 60° to 30° and vertical dispersion shall be 90°. The on-axis frequency response shall be 67Hz-18kHz +/- 3dB. The loudspeaker shall produce a maximum SPL of 140dB peak in active mode and 139dB peak in passive mode, calculated at 1 metre. Power handling shall be 350WAES, 1400W peak. Rated impedance in passive mode shall be 6 ohms. Rated impedance in bi-amp mode shall be LF: 6 ohms, HF: 8 ohms.
The enclosure shall be made from plywood and incorporate pocket handles and threaded inserts. The drivers shall be protected by a perforated steel grille with scrim cloth backing.
Dimensions, including feet, (W x H x D) shall be 556mm x 293mm x 470mm (21.9in x 11.5in x 18.5in). Weight shall be 19kg (41.9lbs).
The loudspeaker shall be the Martin Audio XE300.
