Martin Audio Announces New Hybrid Double 18” Subwoofer



Martin Audio has announced a new subwoofer to its line up with the introduction of SXH218––a hybrid passive subwoofer with two extremely high-powered 4.5” coil, 18” drivers.


The ideal companion for Martin Audio’s new WPC optimized line array in low end heavy applications or high performance permanent installations such as nightclubs, the SXH218 is already set to be a popular choice with its rental partners and installers.


Managing Director, Dom Harter, commented, “It looks destined to be the fastest selling subwoofer we’ve introduced in some time. We’ve already received significant pre-orders from a key rental partner in the US; it’s already been installed into a new nightclub in Miami, and we’re pretty confident that when we showcase the subwoofer to our European partners, we will sell out of our initial production runs.”


The subwoofer can achieve an impressive max SPL of 148dB and is powered by either one channel of an iK42––from the company’s bestselling iKON amplifier range––or for full output a bridged pair of channels.


SXH218 will ship from April 2018.
