WAVEFRONT WS18X

The Martin Audio Wavefront WS18X is a single 18″ reflex-loaded sub-bass system. WS18X can provide additional headroom and sub-extension down to 35Hz for any of the Wavefront full range systems. A top hat fitting allows W2 and W3 mid-top cabinets to be mounted on the WS18X using an adjustable pole.


WS18X features a 1kW 18″ drive unit with magnet structure and suspension engineered for maximum linear excursion. The birch ply cabinet is fitted with four pocket handles and four 4″ castors for easy deployment. It features large area porting to reduce air noise.

WS18X is designed to be driven with high output power amplifiers with precise peak and RMS limiting. The Linea Research 44M20 four channel amplifier, can power up to four WS18X per channel. A total of 16 units can be driven from a single 2 channel amplifier.

MARTIN AUDIO

WAVEFRONT WS218X

The Martin Audio Wavefront WS218X is a dual 18″ reflex-loaded sub-bass system. WS218X can provide additional headroom and sub-extension down to 35Hz for any of the Wavefront full range systems.

MARTIN AUDIO

WAVEFRONT W8CS

The Martin Audio Wavefront W8CS is the companion sub to the W8C mid-high system. Sharing the same footprint and external dimensions, they can be flown together as a W8 point-source cluster. W8CS provides the W8C mid-high system with additional headroom and sub-bass extension down to 45Hz.


The W8CS can be used as full bass subwoofers meeting the W8C at 120Hz. Alternatively W8CS may be deployed as mid-bass sections covering 60Hz to 160Hz to compliment ground-stacked WSX, extending performance down to 35Hz.



Features

  • Sub-bass system 45Hz – 200Hz ±3dB
  • Power handling: 800W AES
  • Sensitivity 1w/1m: 105dB

W8CS is designed to be driven with high output power amplifiers with precise peak and RMS limiting. The Linea Research 44M20 four channel amplifier, can power up to four W8CS per channel. A total of sixteen units can be driven from a single 2 channel amplifier.

MARTIN AUDIO

WAVEFRONT WSX

Wavefront WSXa is a 7ft folded-horn driven by a 1000W 18″ driver. This cabinet is designed for ground-stacks. WSX reproduces high-impact bass throughout the operating bandwidth.


Deployed in multiples of four, WSX increase headroom for the W8 system and extend sub extension down to 35Hz. The WSX sub bass cabinet is best for the full sub-bass extension.



Features

  • Sub-bass system 35Hz – 150Hz ±3dB
  • Power handling: 1,000W AES
  • Sensitivity 1w/1m: 105dB
  • Max SPL: 135dB cont; 141dB peak
