Martin Audio Blackline F215 Plus

Blackline+ systems are synonymous with exceptional sound quality and reliability and have become the benchmark for premium live music venues, nightclubs and installations worldwide.


All low frequency drivers used in the two-way systems now benefit from the addition of aluminium demodulation rings to minimise the variation in voice coil inductance as the coil moves in the gap. The result is improved midrange clarity and reduced intermodulation distortion at high excursions, ensuring that the sound balance and quality is maintained even at high levels.


In the development of the Blackline+ Series, special attention has also been given to matching the directivity of the low frequency drivers to the HF horns in the crossover region. This has been achieved by careful choice of LF cone profiles, together with improvements in the crossover design.


Blackline+ – superior by design.

Two-way passive reflex with dual bass drivers


The Blackline F215+ is a two-way passive, trapezoidal enclosure with dual 15” (380mm)/3” (75mm) voice coil low frequency drivers and a 1.4” (35mm) exit titanium diaphragm compression driver, mounted on a proprietary, rotatable, 80° x 50° constant directivity horn.


Below 250Hz, both LF drivers operate together to produce low frequencies, whilst above 250Hz, only the upper LF driver is used to reproduce the midrange up to the crossover point. This technique avoids the uneven response which would occur if both drivers were allowed to operate together over the midband.


Each of the two new LF drivers features a tough, water resistant cone and a lightweight, high BL, neodymium motor system with inside/outside coil windings for improved heat transfer. An aluminium demodulating ring improves the midrange performance at high levels and increased excursion is available via a triple roll surround and deep motor structure.


The F215+ can be used with or without a controller. Use of the M3+ or DX1.5 will enhance the low frequency performance of the system and provide high quality limiters to protect the F215+ from being overdriven.
