Martin Audio CDD12

Martin Audio CDD12 from£POA

The Martin Audio CDD12 is a compact, passive two-way speaker system that has been designed for installations that require high output levels. Its high-specification 12” (300mm) LF /1” exit HF Coaxial Differential Dispersion (CDD) driver delivers perfect sound across the audience over medium-throw distances.

The CDD technology employed in the Martin Audio CDD12 delivers more consistent audience coverage than systems with fixed X° x Y° coverage patterns. Projecting relatively more output to the rear of the audience, while having wide horizontal coverage close-up. Its innovative Coaxial Differential Dispersion (CDD) driver achieves ‘point source’ summation of the LF and HF sections — eliminating off-axis variations, in frequency response associated with non-coaxial designs.

The LF driver has a 2.5” (65mm) voice coil and efficient motor with an aluminium demodulating ring to minimise distortion, while the HF driver utilises a 1.75” (44mm) polyimide diaphragm and features a low-compression phase-plug to reduce non-linearity.

The visually distinctive composite enclosure can be used in either horizontal (landscape) or vertical (portrait) orientation, with rotation of the driver easily accomplished by removing the screw-free, protective grille. The beautifully curved shape of the Martin Audio CDD12 allows it to be surface-mounted close to a wall via an optional wall bracket or suspended from a ceiling by eye-bolts or a horizontal yoke option.

A full-range, passive two-way system, the CDD12 may be used without a controller. However, the EQ and limiter functions of a controller such as the Martin Audio DX0.5, DX1.5 or DX2, or an MA Series amplifier with onboard DSP will maximise its capabilities. When used with a CSX subwoofer, crossover and EQ functions can either be performed by the DX0.5, DX1.5 and DX2 system controllers, or by an MA Series amplifier with on-board DSP option.
