CDD-LIVE 8 - Overview

The Martin Audio CDD-LIVE 8 is an ultra-compact, self-powered, two-way system featuring an 8" (200mm) LF/1" (25mm) exit HF Coaxial Differential Dispersion driver which can be easily rotated for horizontal or vertical orientation. Its small size gives no indication of its high output capability and exceptional fidelity. As a stand-alone loudspeaker, it has a multitude of professional applications - from small-medium scale sound reinforcement, AV presentations and HoW to distributed systems, frontfill/infill and use as a micro stage monitor.

With wide coverage close-up, the Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology employed in the CDD-LIVE 8 delivers more consistent audience coverage than systems with fixed X° x Y° coverage patterns, and 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.

A self-powered system, the CDD-LIVE 8 incorporates a two-channel Class D amplifier, DSP and Dante™ digital audio networking - simplifying set-up, enhancing control and eliminating amplifier racks. The onboard amplifier delivers 1000W LF + 300W HF peak output to the drivers, and its switched-mode power supply auto-ranges to global mains voltages from 100 to 240V 50/60Hz.
