Martin Audio W8LS

Martin Audio W8LS Dedicated high performance sub-bass system from£POA

The Martin Audio W8LS is a dedicated high performance sub-bass system designed to augment the low frequency output of the W8L in large scale applications, where the sub-bass enclosures must be flown.

The physical dimensions of the Martin Audio W8LS are identical to the W8L and this means it is equipped with the same proprietary rigging system, allowing flown arrays to be constructed rapidly and safely.

It features twin, 1000 watt 18″ (460mm) drive units with magnet structure and suspensions engineered for maximum linear excursion. The drivers have been reflex loaded by ports at either end of the enclosure and the substantial internal bracing is employed to minimise energy absorption by the cabinet walls at the very high pressures generated within the enclosure itself.

Please call us at Old Barn Audio on 01892 752246 if you have any questions, or would like to buy either a Martin Audio W8LS or any other product from the Martin Audio Line Array Range.
