Martin Audio CDD-LIVE! 8

CDD-LIVE! 8 RRP £1,495

Martin Audio CDD-Live 8The Martin Audio CDD-LIVE! 8, another new product from Martin Audio is an ultra-compact, self-powered, two-way system. It  features an 8” (200mm) LF/1” (25mm) exit HF Coaxial Differential Dispersion driver that is easily rotated for horizontal or vertical orientation.

Due to its small size, there is no indication of its high output capability and exceptional fidelity. As a stand-alone loudspeaker, it has a multitude of professional applications — from small-medium scale sound reinforcement, AV presentations and HoW, to distributed systems, frontfill/infill and use as a micro stage monitor.

With wide coverage close-up, the Coaxial Differential Dispersion CDD technology that has been employed in the CDD-LIVE! 8, delivers more consistent audience coverage than systems with fixed X° x Y° coverage patterns. As well as this, its innovative CDD driver achieves ‘point source’ summation of the LF and HF sections — which eliminates the off-axis variations in frequency response associated with non-coaxial designs.

A self-powered system, the CDD-LIVE! 8 incorporates a two-channel Class D amplifier, DSP and Dante™ digital audio networking — simplifying set-up, enhancing control and eliminating amplifier racks. The onboard amplifier of the CDD-LIVE! 8 delivers 1000W LF + 300W HF peak output to the drivers, and its switched-mode power supply auto-ranges to global mains voltages from 100 to 240V 50/60Hz.

DSP functions — including parametric EQ, delay, muting, gain and preset selection — can be controlled over Ethernet from a PC or Windows® tablet via intuitive VU-NET™ proprietary software. As an alternative to its analogue inputs, the CDD-LIVE! 8 is Dante enabled for digital audio distribution and control over a single CAT5 cable to maintain audio quality however long the cable run.

The CDD-LIVE! 8 is an incredibly versatile two-way system. Its multi-angle enclosure can be used in either horizontal or vertical orientation, with rotation of the driver easily accomplished by removing the screw-free, protective grille. The tour-grade enclosure is constructed from multi-laminate plywood and finished in a hard-wearing polyurea coating. Integral fittings include a top-hat for pole mounting and multiple M8 inserts for attachment to a wall-bracket, yoke or universal bracket with a wide range of up and down tilt angles.
