Martin Audio: XE Series Monitors

by Michael Eddy

Martin Audio had a U.S. launch, and demonstrated a range of new optimized line arrays, stage monitors, and amplifiers, at InfoComm 2017 in Orlando. In the stage monitor category, the company introduced its XE Series that features engineering innovation to monitoring.


The company brings engineering innovation to stage monitoring with its new XE Series. Featuring unique Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology with a patent-pending third static waveguide, the XE series is designed to deliver perfect monitor sound with a defined coverage pattern that allows the artist freedom of movement, while reducing overlap with adjacent monitors.

“The world of stage monitoring has been stagnating for far too long with much of today’s monitor technology based on decade-old solutions,” Jason Baird, R&D Director, commented. “XE changes the game and the fact that you can go right up and over the monitor as well as further back without significant changes in SPL or tonality improves the flexibility for an artist and sound engineer.”

Other new Martin Audio products introduced at InfoComm 2017, included: Wavefront Precision Series, a new generation of multipurpose line arrays designed to bring Martin Audio’s signature sound, coverage consistency and control to a broader range of live events, permanent venue installations and budgets. To accompany this series there are two new subwoofers the SX118 and SX218, a single 18” and double 18” respectively. Also launched was the latest LE Monitor Series, which scales down the technology found in the XE Series to bring engineering innovation to everyday stage monitoring.
