Martin Audio (Kitchener, Ontario) will introduce the new compact W8LS Line Array Subwoofer at InfoComm in early June; this product completes its W8L Line Array system.

The W8LS is a dedicated, high-performance, sub-bass system designed to augment the low-frequency output of the W8L in large-scale applications where the sub-bass enclosures must be flown. It's physically identical to the W8L and features the same proprietary rigging system, allowing flown arrays to be constructed rapidly and safely.

Featuring a high-power, dual-long excursion 18-inch direct radiator design, the W8LS produces 138dB continuous and 144dB peak from a single half-space unit; it has an extended response of 32 Hz to 180 Hz, ±3 dB, and a usable response to 28 Hz (-10 dB). The cabinet has twin, 1,000-watt 18-inch (460mm) drive units with magnet structure and suspensions engineered for maximum linear excursion. The drivers are reflex-loaded by ports at either end of the enclosure, and substantial internal bracing is employed to minimize energy absorption by the cabinet walls.
