Martin Audio has announced the X218 subwoofer, extending its best-selling portable BlacklineX series.

Martin Audio X218 subwooferLaunched in 2016, BlacklineX was the first new series developed under the management of Dom Harter and was an instant hit, delivering performance and value for a range of applications including portable sound reinforcement and stage monitoring for live bands, DJs and corporate events, to installations in nightclubs, bars, commercial spaces and houses of worship.

The original line-up comprised just a 15-inch and single 18-inch subwoofer. Joining it, the X218 is a dual-driver, high performance subwoofer with an operating range of 42Hz-200Hz +3dB. It produces high output levels – 141dB peak SPL (half space) – with low distortion and can be used singly or stacked horizontally. It features dual 18-inch/4-inch voice coil, long-excursion drivers in a reflex enclosure with eight large ports that reduce air turbulence at high output levels.

For versatility in deployment, the X218 is fitted with a 35mm polemount socket for mounting BlacklineX full-range enclosures, and integral M10 inserts provide for eyebolt suspension of a single enclosure.

When used with BlacklineX Series full-range systems, crossover and EQ functions can be performed by the DX0.5 or DX4.0 system controllers or by a Martin Audio amplifier with onboard DSP.

‘Our double-digit growth for the last three years has been largely born out of a new product drive and this latest addition to the best-selling BlacklineX series starts the year off nicely,’ Harter says. ‘It will further drive our pedigree and success in value-led portable and installation applications.’

The X218 will ship worldwide from early May 2020.
