The CDD5TX-WR is a weatherised two-way passive micro speaker incorporating a 70V/100V line transformer and designed for discreet positioning in architectural installations — including bars, museums, foyers, concourses, exhibition centres and HoW as well as outdoor applications where it will be subject to changing environmental conditions, but sheltered from direct exposure to the elements. It features a unique, patent-pending 5” (125mm) LF/0.7” (19mm) HF Coaxial Differential Dispersion driver in a rigid ABS moulded enclosure with a dual cable gland for easy daisy-chaining of cabinets without the need for external breakout boxes and is supplied with a dedicated omni-directional mounting weather resistant bracket.
The Coaxial Differential Dispersion technology employed in the CDD5TX-WR delivers more consistent audience coverage than systems with fixed X° x Y° coverage patterns — projecting relatively more output to the rear of the audience to distribute sound evenly front-to-back, while having wide horizontal coverage close-up. Its innovative CDD driver achieves ‘point source’ summation of the LF and HF sections — eliminating off-axis variations in frequency response in the crossover region associated with non-coaxial designs. Improving on conventional coaxial designs, which can suffer from high-frequency beaming, the driver features a static waveguide that merges seamlessly with the unique cone shape — maintaining the dispersion pattern out to very high frequencies.
The visually-distinctive enclosure can be used in either horizontal (landscape) or vertical (portrait) orientation, with rotation of the driver easily accomplished by removing the screw-free, protective grille. The curved shape of the enclosure allows it to be surface-mounted close to a wall or ceiling by means of the supplied omni-directional bracket or an optional close-mount ceiling bracket.
CDD5TX-WR features a water and particle resistant grille made from zinc plated mild steel with powder coated finish and is suitable for operating temperatures between -20°C to +70°C and environmentally tested to meet IP54.
Finished in black (RAL9005) or white (RAL9016) as standard.
A full-range, passive two-way system, the CDD5TX-WR may be used without a controller. However, the EQ and limiter functions of a controller such as the Martin Audio DX0.5, DX1.5 or DX2, or an MA Series amplifier with onboard DSP will maximise its capabilities. When used with a CSX subwoofer, crossover and EQ functions can either be performed by the DX0.5, DX1.5 and DX2 system controllers, or by an MA Series amplifier with onboard DSP option.
CDD-WR loudspeakers meet a rating of IP54 and feature a weatherised water resistant grille made from zinc plated mild steel with a powder coated finish. CSX-WR subwoofers in the series are have an IP24 rating and feature a zinc plated mild steel grille with powder coated finish, plywood cabinets with polyurea finish and are flyable with stainless steel fixings.
Applications include outdoor restaurants, bars and hotel areas, and near field systems in outdoor stadia, transport hubs, concourses and theme parks.
