Martin Audio DD6

Differential Dispersion Systems

Martin Audio’s Differential Dispersion™ systems deliver more consistent frequency response and SPL’s over the audience than from systems with fixed X° x Y° dispersion.

DD12 - Combining onboard networking, DSP and Class D amplification with state-of-the-art transducers, the compact DD12 sets a new benchmark for professional, powered two-way loudspeaker systems in terms of fidelity, output capability and coverage consistency. Its compact, multi-angle enclosure facilitates vertical or horizontal orientation, as well as use as a stage monitor.

DD6 - The ultra-compact DD6 is a passive two-way, multi-purpose loudspeaker system designed for premium applications which require ‘on-the-fly’ flexibility. Its high frequency horn can be easily rotated for horizontal or vertical use in a quick, tool free operation. Up to three DD6’s can be driven by the PSX self-powered companion subwoofer.

W8VDQ - Combines line array and differential dispersion technologies within a single enclosure — a unique solution to the requirement of even coverage over wide angles and medium throw distances from a single element. The W8VDQ has wide short-throw horizontal dispersion of 120°, reducing to 100° as the throw increases.

* 2-way system

* Ultra-compact Differential Dispersion™ System

The DD6's Differential Dispersion technology provides an advanced solution to the requirements of even coverage over wide angles and medium throw distances.

Designed using Martin Audio’s in-house BEM (Boundary Element Method) tools, the short throw horizontal dispersion of the horn is 120°, narrowing to 90° as throw increases. Vertically, the horn covers 60º, with greater output above the horizontal centre plane.

The combination of narrower horizontal dispersion and greater output above the horn’s horizontal centre plane creates progressively more HF output as the throw distance increases. The resultant dispersion pattern is ideally suited to covering audiences located on flat or gradually sloping surfaces.

The comprehensive mounting options offer an incredible degree of flexibility for any application. M8 inserts can be used with eyebolts and there are three dedicated brackets available; a multipurpose vertical tilt bracket which can be attached to the top, bottom or side of the DD6 and can be used with a top hat fitting or scaffold clamp, a yoke for fitting to walls or ceilings in any orientation, and a wall bracket with invisible fitting to a wall..
