Martin Audio SXCF118

The Martin Audio SXCF118 is a compact, high performance cardioid subwoofer. The flown version of the SXC118, it is the ideal partner for flown WPS arrays. Combining maximum low frequency output with pattern control. It features an 18” (460mm) forward facing driver and a 14” (356mm) rear facing driver, each driven independently by separate amplifier channels and DSP. Each driver has its own chamber with optimised bass reflex porting.

This arrangement produces a cardioid dispersion pattern which maximises the front radiation and reduces unwanted radiation behind the subwoofer. The recommended iK42 amplifier optimises the DSP parameters for front and rear drivers to maximise the rear rejection — from 21dB at 43Hz to 28dB at 75Hz. This keeps low frequencies away from stages and walls as well as reducing reverberant energy in the room. Greatly improving low frequency response accuracy and impact.

In front of the enclosure, the output from the two drivers is additive, giving an extra 2dB of output when compared with a conventional 1 x 18” subwoofer.

The addition of the input cover accessory makes the SXCF118 weather resistant and suitable for outdoor usage.
