The Martin Audio MLA Mini is part of a suite of award winning loudspeakers and Old Barn Audio are proud UK Distributors for Martin Audio’s newest incarnation.
Martin Audio MLA Mini is quickly establishing it’s credentials as a sound investment, not only providing powerful and exciting sound for such an ultra-compact format, but also because it’s versatility and lightweight design offers a diversity of usage and with transport savings and labour required for setup.
The next generation of its Martin Audio MLA (Multi-cellular Loudspeaker Array) technology, MLA Mini’s ultra-compact size, lightweight and radical design form a compelling solution for both live and installed sound culminating in a scalable, high octane solution, yet within budget.
To exemplify this, a twelve-box array will throw 35 metres and deliver dynamic music in venues of up to 1000 people. The key that unlocks the power of the Martin Audio MLA Mini is the MSX mini-sub power plant, which complements the main system and houses the amplification, networking and DSP necessary to power and control itself and four MLA Mini enclosures.
The system can be flown, ground-stacked or pole mounted. In its simplest setup, four MLA Minis can be pole-mounted above the MSX with adjustable tilt angle, and function as a plug ‘n’ play system, with the user recalling onboard presets instead of using laptop control. At the other end of the scale, up to sixteen MLA Minis can be flown in an array and powered by four ground-stacked MSX subs.
Each Martin Audio MLA Mini enclosure houses 2 x 6.5” (165mm)/2” (50mm) voice coil LF drivers and a column of 3 x 1.4” (35mm) aluminium dome HF drivers on a 100° horizontal dispersion horn. The 15” (380mm) reflex loaded MSX can be integrated into flown arrays or ground-stacked separately.
MSX also contains nine channels of Powersoft Class D amplification to provide drive while the onboard DSP interacts with bespoke DISPLAY2.1™ intelligent software for accurate array optimisation.
With each individual cell under software control, ‘hard-avoid’ areas can also be programmed in to reduce sound spill, and vertical coverage can be fine-tuned electronically in-situ without the need to re-rig the array.
Arrays and MSX’s can be controlled from a laptop or wireless tablet running VU-NET™ control software thus eliminating trial and error tuning.
These attributes make it the obvious solution for small-to-medium scale theatre and live music venues; corporate AV events; fixed installations in concert halls, ballrooms and HoW — as well as side-fills for Martin Audio MLA Compact systems in a live context.
