Martin Audio LE Series
Martin Audio recently unveiled its new range of LE monitors: the LE1200, LE1500, and LE2100. At the top of the line is the LE2100 three-way biamp-only, differential dispersion stage monitor, which offers a low profile and very high power. This high-performance monitor is designed for large-stage applications where maximum SPL is required. It features twin high-specification 12in. low-frequency drivers, a unique 6.5in. mid-range device and a 1in. exit compression driver mounted on a differential dispersion horn. Differential dispersion technology increases the area over which a constant SPL and consistent frequency response is maintained at ear height, enabling the artist to move around more freely.
The LE1500 is a compact, high-performance stage monitor that combines high output and controlled dispersion with a discreet, contemporary design. It features a high-specification 15in. low-frequency drive unit and a 1.4in. exit compression driver mounted on a differential dispersion horn.
Finally, the Martin Audio LE1200 is an ultra-compact, high-performance stage monitor combining maximum enclosure volume with an optimum presentation angle in a low-profile, contemporary design. It features a high-specification 12in. low-frequency drive unit and a 1.4in. exit compression driver mounted on a differential dispersion horn. As with all the monitors, the rear curves of the cabinet are a single, extremely stiff, pressed and precisely machined beech laminate panel. The hardwood front rail ensures the cabinet is extremely rigid, tough, and acoustically neutral. Left- and right-handed versions are available to facilitate use in pairs.
The new monitors are optimized for use with the Martin Audio DX1 controller to provide crossover, limiting, and EQ functions. When operated in passive mode, they may be used without a controller, but benefit from the EQ and limiting functions of the DX1, which also ensures that both active and passive configurations will exhibit the same tonal balance when used together.
