Martin Audio has introduced the Screen 2/2P system, which is aimed at small cinemas, preview theatres, screening rooms and post-production suites, and accommodates the various digital formats of modern films. Martin say the Screen 2, which can be run either active or passive (2P), exhibits low distortion, wide bandwidth and uniform coverage. Designed to be run bi-amped, the system uses a single 15in (380mm) LF driver, reflex-loaded with a single horn-loaded 1" (25mm) HF unit.Martin has also introduced the Effect 3R, a two-way passive surround system suited to medium-sized cinemas, screening rooms and under-balcony applications. It features an 8" (200mm) bass driver and a 1" (25mm) HF unit mounted on a 90 x 90 degree waveguide which controls directivity above 2kHz. The Effect 3R has THX approval from Lucasfilm. Both products have already debuted at the new Warner Bros screening rooms in London.
