Martin Audio Blackline X8

Blackline X8 RRP From £325

Martin Audio Blackline X8The Martin Audio Blackline X8 is an ultra-compact passive two-way system with an 8” (200mm)/2” (50mm) voice coil LF driver and a 1” (25mm) HF driver mounted on a 90° x 50° horn. This can be easily rotated for horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on venue requirements. Its very small size gives no indication of its high output capability.

As a stand-alone loudspeaker, it has a multitude of professional applications — from distributed sound reinforcement, HoW and AV events to frontfill/infill and use as a micro stage monitor. Complemented by a BlacklineX subwoofer, it is the ideal, simple-to-use system for portable applications and installations which call for an unobtrusive system that can deliver pristine sound over short and medium throw distances.

The X8 is constructed from plywood and fitted with a screw-free steel grille, M8 inserts for wall brackets and eyebolt suspension, plus a pole-mount socket with a removable bung that maintains clean lines in install applications. Finished in black textured paint as standard, the X8 can be supplied in white or any RAL colour to order.

A full-range passive two-way system, the X8 may be used without a controller. However, the EQ and limiter functions of a controller such as the Martin Audio DX0.5 will maximise its capabilities. When used in conjunction with an X115, X118 or X210 subwoofer, crossover and EQ functions can be performed by the Martin Audio DX0.5, or by an MA Series amplifier with onboard DSP option.

Please call us at Old Barn Audio on 01892 752246 if you have any questions, or would like to buy either a Martin Audio Blackline X8 passive two way speaker system or any other product from the BlacklineX Range.
