W8CS

$550.00 $2,921.57

Important technical advances at Martin have enabled the team to decrease size and improve performance for venues which require bass to be flown. Outperforming previous generations of speakers, the Wavefront W8CS is a stunning powerhouse of high efficiency horn-loaded bass in a compact flying enclosure to match the W8C. Its unique port assisted, folded-horn design combines high efficiency and characteristic bass impact with the LF extension of a reflex enclosure. The W8CS can either be used as the sole source of low frequencies in a W8C system or may be used in conjunction with WSX ground stacked subwoofers in arena systems and flown as part of the main W8C array. It features a very high power 800 watt 15" (380mm) driver with magnet structure and suspensions optimized for large linear excursion. The folded horn loading results in an efficiency typically 5dB greater than direct radiator bass systems. In addition, output below the horn cut-off frequency is achieved by venting the drive unit chamber via a unique Linear Flow‰ port, which provides low frequency extension with reduced distortion and air-noise. The dimensions of the W8CS are identical to the W8C allowing it to be flown with the same rigging arrangements. The enclosure is constructed from multi-laminate birch plywood and is fully equipped for touring with rear castors, top and bottom flip handles and pocket handles on the cabinet sides. It is fitted with two load certified MAN flying points which link between cabinets to provide a fast and secure means of assembling an array.

DESCRIPTION

Important technical advances at Martin have enabled the team to
decrease size and improve performance for venues which require bass to
be flown. Outperforming previous generations of speakers, the
Wavefront W8CS is a stunning powerhouse of high efficiency horn-loaded
bass in a compact flying enclosure to match the W8C. Its unique port
assisted, folded-horn design combines high efficiency and
characteristic bass impact with the LF extension of a reflex
enclosure.
The W8CS can either be used as the sole source of low
frequencies in a W8C system or may be used in conjunction with WSX
ground stacked subwoofers in arena systems and flown as part of the
main W8C array.
It features a very high power 800 watt 15"
(380mm) driver with magnet structure and suspensions optimized for
large linear excursion. The folded horn loading results in an
efficiency typically 5dB greater than direct radiator bass systems. In
addition, output below the horn cut-off frequency is achieved by
venting the drive unit chamber via a unique Linear Flow‰ port, which
provides low frequency extension with reduced distortion and
air-noise.
The dimensions of the W8CS are identical to the W8C
allowing it to be flown with the same rigging arrangements. The
enclosure is constructed from multi-laminate birch plywood and is
fully equipped for touring with rear castors, top and bottom flip
handles and pocket handles on the cabinet sides. It is fitted with two
load certified MAN flying points which link between cabinets to
provide a fast and secure means of assembling an array.
