Martin Audio starts shipping CDD-WR range

With pre-sales reportedly running high, Martin Audio has announced that its new CDD-WR weatherised installation loudspeaker series is now shipping.

Featuring patented Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology, the CDD-WR range delivers improved coverage and consistency, with the need for fewer speakers than those with traditional fixed dispersion X° x Y° horns, and is designed for outdoor operation where it will be subject to changing environmental conditions but sheltered from direct exposure to the elements. Weatherised mounting brackets are also available.

CDD-WR loudspeakers meet a rating of IP54 and feature a weatherised water resistant grille made from zinc plated mild steel with a powder coated finish. CSX-WR subwoofers in the series have an IP24 rating and feature a zinc plated mild steel grille with powder coated finish, plywood cabinets with polyurea finish. They are flyable with stainless steel fixings.

Martin Audio product manager David Morbey said: “We are delighted with the interest that has been shown in CDD-WR since it was first unveiled and are pleased that we are now able to get this out to the marketplace.

"Architects had already seen the value of CDD’s discreet design and fewer speakers. Now with the introduction of CDD-WR we can extend the same benefits of consistent coverage to outdoor environments including outdoor stadia, transport hubs, concourses and theme parks.”
