New Martin Audio WPS line array now shipping

Martin Audio has announced that its new WPS, the fourth model in the Wavefront Precision optimised line array series that was unveiled in June and premiered at InfoComm 2019 in Orlando, will be shipping with effect from early September.

The Wavefront Precision architecture is designed to deliver greatly improved coverage, consistency and control.

The latest addition to the Wavefront Precision range can achieve a peak SPL of 133dB and is well suited for applications that require a high output array with reduced weight and footprint. This makes it ideal for live sound reinforcement and installations in theatres, concert halls and Houses of Worship, while rental companies should see scope in deploying WPS arrays as front-fill, delay or side-hang support for larger Wavefront Precision systems.

The passive 3-way system integrates a high density of drive units in a very compact enclosure, specifically 2 x 8” LF drivers, 4 x 4” midrange drivers and 4 x 1” exit HF compression drivers loaded by a moulded HF horn which occupies the full width of the enclosure — defining the 100° horizontal constant directivity coverage pattern of both the HF and midrange sections. 

For extended low frequency performance, WPS is designed to be partnered with the SXC118 cardioid subwoofer and its flyable variant, SXCF118.

Dom Harter, managing director, stated: “We were delighted with the response we received from the market when WPS was first announced and are pleased to have been able to bring it to market on time. Wavefront Precision has been the company’s fastest ever selling line array series, and we are delighted that the journey is continuing with the launch of WPS.”

He added that for anyone who missed its first showcase at InfoComm 2019, there will be an opportunity to both hear and interact with WPS – along with the rest of the Wavefront Precision series at the Martin Audio Open Days (September 17-19).
