May 22 2019, 01:15
Designed to set a new benchmark for full-bandwidth, high definition portable audio at a user-friendly price point, Martin Audio has announced BlacklineX Powered, bringing new active options to its BlacklineX family of portable sound reinforcement solutions. The new self-powered portable range from the British brand, was launched in a special event in London, anticipating its presentation at InfoComm 2019.

The new Martin Audio BlacklineX Powered range includes the 12-inch XP12 and 15-inch XP15 full range enclosures plus the compact but powerful 18-inch XP118 subwoofer. The portable PA speakers feature integrated acoustic, DSP and amplifier technologies to achieve the clarity, precision and richness of tone that audio professionals will recognize from Martin Audio. The range’s debut – spurred by customer demand – follows the international success of the passive BlacklineX Series of portable enclosures – now officially the fastest-selling portable series in Martin Audio’s 48-year history.

And it's not only about integrated amplifiers and processing. The new BlacklineX Powered offers optional Bluetooth control, streaming and a built-in three channel mixer, placing increased flexibility and features within easy reach of every user – from live venues, DJs and corporate events to permanent installs, particularly houses of worship. Users will also recognize the road-ready construction, quick set-up and adaptability of this range developed by one of pro audio’s founding brands. 

“BlacklineX was the first series the team developed and launched after I became Managing Director,” recalls Martin Audio MD, Dom Harter. “It’s become the fastest selling portable series the company has ever launched and a significant contributing factor in Martin Audio’s rapid success over the last three years. The introduction of a self-powered series makes perfect sense and by leveraging our engineers’ expertise in acoustic, DSP and amplifier technologies, we have crafted a very forward-looking portable range with a classic Martin Audio sound.” 

BlacklineX Powered will begin shipping worldwide in July 2019, and will feature as part of Martin Audio’s presentation at InfoComm 2019, taking place on booth 6743 and in audio demo room W224C, from June 12-14 at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida.
