Martin Audio 15inch Ultra-compact Coaxial Differential Dispersion System
Ultra-compact Coaxial Differential Dispersion System
Ideal for medium-to-large rooms, the CDD15 is a very high-power, passive two-way system designed for installations that demand the ultimate in sonic performance from a single enclosure. It combines very high output capability with exceptional fidelity and coverage consistency. Its coaxial drive unit comprises a powerful 15” (380mm)/3” (75mm) voice coil LF driver and a 1.4” (35mm) exit HF compression driver with a 3” (75mm) pure titanium diaphragm.
The Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology employed in the CDD15 delivers more consistent audience coverage than systems with fixed X° x Y° coverage patterns — projecting relatively more output to the rear of the audience, while having wide horizontal coverage close-up. Its innovative CDD driver achieves ‘point source’ summation of the LF and HF sections — eliminating off-axis variations in frequency response associated with non-coaxial designs. Improving on conventional coaxial designs, which can suffer from high-frequency beaming, the driver features a static waveguide that merges seamlessly with the unique cone shape — maintaining the dispersion pattern out to very high frequencies.
The visually-distinctive composite enclosure can be used in either horizontal (landscape) or vertical (portrait) orientation, with rotation of the driver easily accomplished by removing the screw-free, protective grille. The CDD15 can be suspended by eyebolts or by means of an optional horizontal yoke.
Finished in black (RAL9005) or white (RAL9016) as standard, the CDD15 can be supplied in any RAL colour to order.
A full-range, passive two-way system, the CDD15 may be used without a controller. However, the EQ and limiter functions of a controller such as the Martin Audio DX0.5, DX1.5 or DX2, or an MA Series amplifier with onboard DSP will maximise its capabilities. When used with a CSX subwoofer, crossover and EQ functions can either be performed by the DX0.5, DX1.5 and DX2 system controllers, or by an MA Series amplifier with onboard DSP option.
