Martin Audio AQ5

Ultra-compact, wide angle system


AQ Series

The AQ Series is an integrated ultra-compact package, designed to fulfil the need for high performance installed sound in pubs, bars, restaurants, retail outlets, conference facilities, post production suites, theatres, educational institutions, places of worship, museums and exhibition centres.

Styled to be architecturally unobtrusive, seven full range enclosures make up the range, from the ultra-compact AQ5 to the very high power AQ15.

The AQ5 and AQ6 are thick-walled structural ABS foam enclosures with the remaining models constructed in heavily braced MDF. All models feature flush mounting, tough, acoustically transparent steel grilles and are finished in RAL7030 grey as standard.

Other RAL colours are available to order.

The seven full range AQ Series loudspeakers are complemented by four dedicated, high power sub-bass enclosures, ranging from the ultra-compact AQ112 to the very high power AQ215.

A high performance AQX controller has been specifically designed to manage AQ Series loudspeakers. The controller is housed in a single rack unit and provides user-selectable active crossover, limiter and trim functions for all AQ system combinations.

The precise acoustical performance, style and ease of installation of the AQ Series will provide the contractor with all the answers in a single package.

AQ5 Ultra-compact, wide angle system

The ultra-compact AQ5 is equipped with two 5.25" (130mm) ICT™ (Inductively Coupled Transducer) drivers optimally splayed for smooth, very wide coverage. The AQ5’s HF diaphragms are driven via inductive coupling, avoiding the tweeter burn-out commonly associated with miniature loudspeakers. ICT™ technology also eliminates the need for a crossover as the inductive coupling provides a complementary transfer function for the tweeter.
