Wavefront Precision

Passive Optimised Line Array Speakers

World’s First Optimised Line Arrays With Scalable Resolution

The Queen's Award

Since the mid-2000s, Martin Audio has been an innovator in the sphere of optimised line array speaker technology, and now with Wavefront Precision, the series offers a scalable approach to the finite level of control, consistency and coverage required for any given event or installation. At the highest resolution, this award winning and patent protected series will provide unprecedented control for hard cut off areas like reflective back walls and suppression of unwanted noise pollution.

Comprising WPM, WPS, WPC and WPL, with all sizes catered for from a mini line array to large format array, Wavefront Precision is Martin Audio’s best ever selling line array series being deployed at major festivals, concerts and corporate events while also being installed into houses of worship, live venues and auditoria around the world.

Where to Buy or Rent

Wavefront Precision: Optimised Line Arrays

Adopting the principle of scalable resolution, with external, dedicated multi-channel amplifiers, Wavefront Precision line arrays are uniquely flexible, upgradeable and financially accessible.
Scalable Resolution
With exceptional line array performance guaranteed by the acoustic design itself, scalable resolution unlocks the full potential of a Wavefront Precision array and provides an adaptable pathway into the world of advanced optimisation.

The greater the resolution of the array in terms of individually driven enclosures, the more precisely our prediction and optimisation software, DISPLAY, can fine-tune audience coverage and hold the frequency response and SPL’s throughout the venue within a tight window specified by the user.

For the first time in the marketplace the decision on the level of resolution and control that is right for the install, client, event or budget is yours.

Standard line array results vs. Scalable resolution

With scalable resolution, the commercial advantages are clear:

  • Design systems to better suit project budget targets.
  • Ability to increase resolution over time by buying more amps at later stage.
  • Dynamic deployment within a venue or site where the main PA could be driven by enclosures with more dedicated amp channels than may be necessary for delays.
  • Adaptable rental pricing based on event dynamics and clients’ resources.

Wavefront Precision: Scalable resolution – the choice is yours

Display Optimisation
DISPLAY is incredibly powerful. Based on an acoustic model accurate to within ±1dB of measured data, it provides a virtual environment in which arrays can be configured and optimised and delivers unrivalled coverage consistency over the audience — right from switch-on.
DISPLAY Optimisation Process

By reducing sound impacting non-audience areas, rear walls and ceilings, the detrimental influence of the room can be significantly ‘dialled-out’ — increasing clarity and intelligibility in challenging acoustic environments.

DISPLAY leaves nothing to chance and takes the guesswork out of array design and deployment — generating predicted frequency responses throughout the venue and providing comprehensive rigging information, including mechanical safety analysis.

Array DSP parameters calculated by DISPLAY are easily uploaded to the iKON amplifiers via Ethernet, using Martin Audio’s VU-NET™ real-time control and monitoring software.

Amplification, DSP And Networking
Wavefront Precision line arrays are designed as complete systems with dedicated, high-performance iKON multi-channel Class D amplifiers, capable of very high power outputs and feature high-speed Ethernet communication for system control and monitoring via VU-NET, plus Dante™ digital audio networking. With the option to transmit digital audio over a single CAT5 cable, quality is maintained over long cable runs and integration with other devices in the sound system is straightforward.

Because the amplifiers are external to the loudspeaker enclosures, the resolution of the array can be increased as required by simply adding more amplifier channels to drive more array enclosures independently — increasing the level of control available to DISPLAY to fine-tune coverage and reduce room influence. External amplifiers also facilitate ease-of-servicing in fixed installations.

iKON amps provide powerful DSP processing of up to 1000 FIR filter taps @ 48kHz on each output channel. This high number of taps is essential to implement DISPLAY’S wide bandwidth optimisation capabilities.

The complete system approach not only guarantees that Wavefront Precision arrays perform repeatedly and effortlessly to their design maximum, but also that they are compatible worldwide.


Design and Materials
It’s not only the consistent coverage, flexibility and scalable resolution that set Wavefront Precision line arrays apart. Their exceptional sonic performance and exemplary horizontal pattern control are born from Martin Audio’s trademark, innovative approach to high-efficiency acoustic design.

Wavefront Precision enclosures are constructed from plywood with a durable painted finish and fabric-backed protective steel grilles. Discreet side pocket handles and rear grips are provided to assist handling and splay-angle adjustment, while integrated rigging systems assure quick, efficient and safe construction of arrays.

SX Subwoofers
The Wavefront Precision Series can be augmented by a complement of either ground-stacked or flown SX Subwoofers.
