Signature Sound for Portable and Installation

The Martin Audio Blackline XP12 compact powered loudspeaker delivers high sound levels - either as a stand-alone system or supplemented by a BlacklineX subwoofer to form a remarkably powerful sound reinforcement system, given its size and portability. Fitted with a screw-free steel grille, the Martin Audio Blackline XP12 features comprehensive mounting options that include wall bracket, eyebolt suspension, and pole-mounting. With a 12" (300mm) LF driver unit and a 1" (25mm) exit compression driver on a rotatable horn, this active, powered loudspeaker’s 80° x 50° dispersion pattern is ideal for medium throw applications. The XP12's enclosure is constructed from birch/poplar plywood and coated with black textured paint. The XP12 loudspeaker may be used with or without a system controller. For demanding applications, Martin Audio recommends a DX0.5 system controller configured to perform EQ and limiter functions. The DX0.5 may also be used to configure systems for additional sub-bass cabinets (XP12 + XP15 or XP118).


  • Compact passive two-way system
  • Symmetrical multi-angle plywood enclosure
  • User-rotatable 80° x 50° horn
  • Twin NL4 connectors
  • Flexible mounting options via M8 inserts

Kyle Baca - Quicksilver Mobile Entertainment
One of my ultimate favorite powered speakers. I have owned many speakers from Peavey and RCF and they have nothing on this speaker. I strongly recommend this product for small and medium shows. I used 1 speaker in a school gym and it covered so well and so efficiently. Vert satisfies with this speaker. Would definitely recommend for DJs and other entertainers.
