◗ Compact, high performance three-way line array enclosure ◗ High power - maximum SPL 129dB continuous, 135dB peak (single unit) ◗ Superior bass impact - all horn design ◗ Wide bandwidth - 60Hz-18KHz ± 3dB (single unit) ◗ True 90° (-6dB) horizontal mid and HF pattern control ◗ Very smooth off-axis response - useable out to 120° (-10dB) ◗ Compatible with the full-sized W8L Line Array ◗ Fast, integral rigging system with variable splay angles ◗ Common grid may be used for flying or ground stacking ◗ ViewPoint™ array optimisation software ◗ Loudspeaker management preset files for a wide variety of configurations applications ◗ Medium/large scale touring, theatre, stadia, club ◗ Compatible with W8L, W8LS and WSXa The Martin Audio W8LC is a compact line array enclosure designed to bring superb next-generation line array performance to concert, theatre and commercial events. It meets the need for a high power, high bass impact system that is versatile and scalable for a very wide range of applications in the live sound, corporate and fixed installation fields. W8LC grids allow systems to be flown or ground stacked as required. Though compact in size, the W8LC is a full-bandwidth system and may be used without subwoofers in many applications. Where additional low frequency extension is required, W8LCs may be complemented by the W8LS Line Array subwoofers, WLX horn and reflex loaded subwoofers or WSXa horn loaded subwoofers. Following the all-horn design philosophy of the full-size W8L Longbow, the W8LC is a 3-way system that combines line array principles with innovative horn loading techniques to produce a very powerful compact line array with impressive dynamic impact. The low frequency section of the W8LC comprises a horn loaded 12" (300mm)/3" (75mm) coil neodymium driver that is reflex loaded to extend the LF output to below the natural cut-off point of the horn. This Hybrid® technique marries the very high efficiency of horn loading with the extended low frequency response of a reflex enclosure. The mid horn of the W8LC utilizes 2 x 6.5" (165mm)/1.5" (38mm) coil, maximum efficiency drivers to produce 106dB at 1m for a 1W input - a significant efficiency gain over direct radiator systems. The W8LC’s HF section comprises three 1" horn elements to produce a low-curvature vertical wavefront with an efficiency of 109dB at 1m for a 1W input. This optimal HF curvature enables W8LC enclosures within the array to be splayed up to 7.5° without introducing gaps in the HF vertical coverage.

The loudspeaker system shall be of the three-way horizontally formatted line array type. The low frequency section shall consist of one 12" (300mm) cone transducer, horn and reflex loaded in a Hybrid® bass system. The mid frequency section shall consist of two 6.5" (165mm) cone drivers coupled to a constant directivity horn using toroidal phase devices. The high frequency section shall consist of three 1" (25mm) exit HF compression drivers mounted on vertically coupled waveguides with a constant directivity horn. The enclosure shall be constructed of heavily braced multilaminate plywood with all flying hardware integral and captive. The loudspeaker shall be operated with a separate dedicated electronic controller. Performance of the loudspeaker system with its electronic controller shall meet or exceed the following criteria: Frequency response measured 1 metre on axis shall be 60Hz-18kHz ±3dB. High frequency dispersion at -6dB points shall be 90˚H x 7.5˚V. Power handling shall be 400W AES, 1600W peak LF, 200W AES, 800W peak MF, 100W AES, 400W peak HF.

Weight 58kg (128lbs). The loudspeaker system shall be the Martin Audio W8LC.



The WSXa is a folded horn subwoofer which has been specifically designed to reproduce very deep bass frequencies with maximum efficiency, speed and impact. It is intended to be used with Martin Wavefront Series loudspeakers such as the W8 and W8C and also the W8 line array enclosures in the most demanding touring situations where extreme levels of bass are required. It is also ideal for reproducing the concentrated bass energy of contemporary dance music in club environments. It features a powerful 1000 Watt, 18" (460mm) driver with magnet structure and suspensions specially engineered for very large linear excursion. The internal 'S' shaped folded horn - a Martin hallmark - is over 7 feet (2.1 metres) long and couples the driver to the airload by means of a modified hyperbolic expansion law. This results in an efficiency typically 5dB greater than ported direct radiator sub-bass systems and contributes to the exceptionally fast transient characteristic of the WSXa. The WSXa is designed to be ground stacked and ultimate performance is achieved by close coupling a stack of four or more WSXa’s mirror imaged on their sides to increase the combined horn mouth area. For large outdoor systems, stacking mirror imaged pairs up to six or more high will form a tall line source which will focus the bass into the audience yet retain good horizontal coverage. The WSXa is constructed from multi-laminate birch ply and is fully equipped for touring with rear castors and bar handles.
