SIGNATURE SOUND FOR PORTABLE & INSTALLATION
The new portable BlacklineX Powered Series integrates all of our engineering expertise into easy-to-use, quick-to-deploy, high-powered loudspeakers that bring professional quality sound, top-flight performance and road-worthy durability into the hands of hard-working industry professionals — from musicians, music bars and mobile DJ’s, to corporate AV, House of Worship installations and more.
With optional Bluetooth control, streaming and a built-in three channel mixer, BlacklineX Powered puts Martin Audio signature stadium sound at your fingertips.
DURABLE COMPACT ENCLOSURES
Enclosures are constructed from plywood for enhanced sonic properties and finished with a hard-wearing textured paint for durability on the road. Cloth- backed perforated steel grilles on the XP12 and XP15 protect the drivers from damage and dust ingress, while not impeding airflow at low frequencies.
CONSTANT DIRECTIVITY HF HORNS
CONSISTENT TONAL BALANCE
The optimal 80° x 50° high frequency horns have the same vertical and horizontal mouth dimensions for pattern control down to the crossover frequency in both planes delivering consistent tonal balance. Horns are user- rotatable for horizontal or vertical enclosure orientation.
MAXIMISE USAGE AND ROI
BlacklineX Powered full-range enclosures are compact and designed for vertical or horizontal operation.
Mounting options include wall bracket, eyebolt suspension and pole- mounting. Ergonomic handles assist portability and the symmetrical, multi-angle enclosures are designed to present the optimum angle when used as a stage monitor.
HIGH-EFFICIENCY CLASS D AMPLIFICATION
POWERFUL, CONSISTENT PERFORMANCE
Designed to match the BlacklineX Powered Series transducers, high-efficiency 1300W and 2000W Class D amplifiers ensure Blackline XP systems can deliver very high output levels. PFC (Power Factor Correction) within the power supplies smooths and reduces the overall current drawn from the mains supply to improve consistency of performance.
INTEGRATED CHANNEL PROCESSING AND MIXER
Onboard DSP maximises BlacklineX Powered capabilities and versatility. LF and HF drivers are protected independently by both RMS and peak limiters for years of optimal usage, while a 24dB/octave crossover precisely optimises the LF to HF transition for the most efficient response. A rotary encoder interface and multi-function colour screen on the rear panel provide metering and control of a three-channel mixer with three-band EQ on each channel, plus selection of three voicing presets and operating modes — including full- range, monitor and use with subwoofer so the enclosures can quickly adapt to a multitude of scenarios without added, external processing.
Bluetooth® Control & Streaming Options
An optional Bluetooth® app provides audio streaming and control from Android and iOS phones and tablets*. As well as streaming, the Bluetooth option offers control of the onboard DSP, mixer and mode functions — enabling access to the mixer EQ, mute and level to optimise the speaker set-up remotely. It also enables two speakers to be linked for stereo playback.
* App not available at launch. Expected Autumn 2019.
