LOUD Technologies eNews • June 2009


InfoComm 2009
is here and LOUD is excited to show off all the latest gear from our family of brands, including offerings from EAW, Mackie and Martin Audio. LOUD has two separate demo rooms, each chock full of new gear, ready for your discerning auditory analysis.

Demo Room #202A

Demo Room #202C
Martin Audio

Both Demo Rooms will feature scheduled presentations at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm every day during the exhibition. You can also swing by Booth #6501 to talk with our staff and learn more about the technological and design innovations that separate LOUD gear from the rest of the pack.

Here’s a sample of what we will show this year:

EAW has over 30 years experience providing sound reinforcement solutions that embody a full-system approach, incorporating technology suited equally to both science and art. This year, an expansion of the innovative MicroWedge Series and a new member of the EAW Commercial line take center stage.

MicroSub Photo

The MicroSub Stage Subwoofer is a single-15" ultra-versatile stage subwoofer, designed to address the unique environment of onstage low frequency demands. The MicroSub can be configured and interlocked with other MicroSubs or with other MicroWedge units. Due to its small profile, it serves as an excellent side fill monitor, particularly in a club setting. For optimal performance, it is tuned at 35Hz, operating in the range from 27Hz to 150Hz. It features external DSP with one-way filter. Axial SPL Sensitivity is 92dB (LF - whole space) or 98dB (half space) at 27-150 Hz. Nominal input impedance is 8 Ohms LF, with minimum input impedance of 7.6 Ohms at 165Hz. The unit’s High Pass Filter is a 12db/octave Butterworth filter at 28Hz. Able to produce high sound pressure levels, the MicroSub has a calculated SPL Axial Output Limit of 122dB average/128dB peak (LF - whole space) or 128dB average/134dB peak (half space).

DX1208 Photo

The DX1208 Digital Matrix Mixer features 12-inputs and 8-outputs in a 1U-rackspace. Eight inputs are mic/line capable, with selectable 48-volt phantom power. Four additional inputs on unbalanced RCA connectors allow the users to “stack” inputs, and four S/PDIF inputs are available with sample rate conversion to 48 kHz. All 12 inputs are included in the audio matrix and can be assigned DSP functions prior to exiting the 8 outputs. The DX1208 can receive six logic inputs and send three logic outputs. Communication is accomplished via USB, RS-232, or Ethernet. EAW DX Navigator software is included, allowing access to all of the system’s settings and configurations as well as the expected range of user-adjustable processing.

Martin Audio
Renowned for integrity in design, technical excellence and the longevity of its products, Martin Audio takes system creation into a further dimension with this year’s offerings, including the innovative OmniLine.

ASX Sub Photo

ASX SubWoofer
Aside from the sheer size of a cabinet designed to house a patented 21&quo; transducer, Class-D amplifier and full DSP, the ASX Ultra-High Performance Active Subwoofer revolutionizes ultra-efficient, low frequency sound reproduction. The ASX provides double the output capability of a conventionally driven loudspeaker driver of the same size. When incorporated into a Martin Audio Hybrid® horn design, the complete system can deliver an unsurpassed 152dB peak output (measured) from a single enclosure. Additionally, the adaptive control loop technology maintains linearity up to the maximum output level and power compression is virtually eliminated. Designed for premium club installations and stadium installations, the dynamic and low-distortion sonic signature of the ASX has to be experienced to be believed.

OmniLine Photo

The Martin Audio OmniLine® Articulated Column delivers consistent audio coverage with unprecedented accuracy in a wide variety of architectural environments, using only one amplifier channel per array in many applications. By utilizing a complement of unique, Martin Audio designed drivers, and mechanical alignment techniques, the only processing required is simple EQ and Limiting. A powerful software application provides extremely accurate inter-cabinet and array angles, in order to achieve optimum coverage over a pre-defined area. OmniLine’s aesthetically pleasing cabinet is finished in neutral light grey.
