Martin Audio Announces Additions and Upgrades to CDD Installation Series




Martin Audio has announced new additions and upgraded voicing for its CDD series—as well as improved production capacity—as part of a concerted effort to meet the growing needs of installation applications.

CDD was original launched in 2015, bringing engineering innovation to installed applications, combining distinctive curved enclosures with patent protected Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology. Delivering class-leading performance, fidelity and coverage consistency to venues that demand the ultimate in cutting-edge technology and style, CDD is also pitched at a highly-competitive price point. Martin Audio further extended the range in ensuing years with both weatherized and marine editions to cater for all outdoor environments including cruise ships.

During the pandemic, Martin Audio has seen a plethora of small to medium installations, both indoors and out, to keep sales of CDD extremely buoyant. Bars and restaurants upgraded systems or extended to outdoor areas to better cater for clientele in changing conditions; houses of worship adapted to socially-distanced congregations with the need for improved coverage and consistency, while education facilities similarly needed better solutions to manage socially-distanced students.

Martin Audio has taken the opportunity to maximize the potential of the series by increasing production capacity, while extending product lines to include transformer variants of the popular 8” and 10” models, as well as improving the voicing across the series for an up-to-date sound and consistency to the family, straight out of the box.

In terms of increasing production capacity, Martin Audio has achieved this through improved sourcing of suppliers as well as changing the 12” and 15” from their normal UPM Formi cabinet construction to wooden cabinets. Dom Harter, Managing Director, explained, “The 12” and 15” models in particular have always seen capacity constraints so by moving to wooden enclosures, using innovative bended wood techniques, we have not only been able to retain the classic aesthetics of the CDD design and performance, but now have the capability to increase production by tenfold.”

Extension of the series includes new 8” and 10” versions, with 70V / 100V transformer options, as well as weatherized variants, enabling daisy chaining of loudspeakers for increased amplifier efficiency in larger installation projects. Harter added, “We have seen increased requests for additional transformer versions to complement the current 5” and 6” transformer models, as larger scale projects are all about efficiency of the installation.”

Finally, to coincide with this, Martin Audio has also launched new DSP settings across the range to bring the voicing up to date. These are available to complement any amplifier solution but in addition to this there are also new FIR-based presets for iKON amplifiers and DX4.0 controller to further enhance the sound quality performance ‘out of the box’ to make installations even easier and better performing.

New voicing settings for CDD are available to download now, while wooden cabinet changes are available from January and the transformer additions to follow in February.

Dom Harter summed up, “We’re delighted to extend and improve our best-selling CDD series as well as increase the production capacity to maximize its absolute sales potential as we see increased demand of small to medium installation projects at this time.”
