Martin Audio has announced new additions and upgraded voicing for its CDD series of installation loudspeakers, alongside improved production capacity.

Martin Audio CDDCDD was launched in 2015, combining distinctive curved enclosures with patent protected Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology for venues demanding the cutting-edge technology and style at a highly-competitive price point. Martin Audio further extended the range in ensuing years with both weatherised and marine editions to cater for all outdoor environments including cruise ships.

The company has now extended product line to include transformer variants of the 8-inch and 10-inch models, as well as improving the voicing across the series for an up-to-date sound and consistency to the family.

In terms of increasing production capacity, Martin Audio has achieved this through improved sourcing of suppliers as well as changing the 12-inch and 15-inch from their normal UPM Formi cabinet construction to wooden cabinets.

‘The 12-inch and 15-inch models in particular have always seen capacity constraints so by moving to wooden enclosures, using innovative bended wood techniques, we have not only been able to retain the classic aesthetics of the CDD design and performance, but now have the capability to increase production by tenfold,’ Managing Director Dom Harter explains.

Extension of the series includes new 8-inch and 10-inch versions, with 70V/100V transformer options, as well as weatherised variants, enabling daisy-chaining of loudspeakers for increased amplifier efficiency in larger installation projects. Harter added, ‘We have seen increased requests for additional transformer versions to complement the current 5-inch and 6-inch transformer models, as larger scale projects are all about efficiency of the installation.’

To accompany this, Martin Audio has also launched new DSP settings across the range to bring the voicing up to date. These are available to complement any amplifier solution but in addition to this there are also new FIR-based presets for iKon amplifiers and DX4.0 controller to further enhance the sound quality performance out of the box to make installations even easier and better performing.

New voicing settings for CDD are available to download, with wooden cabinet changes available from January and the transformer additions to follow in February.

‘We’re delighted to extend and improve our best-selling CDD series as well as increase the production capacity to maximise its absolute sales potential as we see increased demand of small to medium installation projects at this time,’ Harter says.
