A Powerful Investment in Premium Point Source Performance

While line arrays and constant curvature arrays provide advanced solutions for large and medium-scale venues, individual point source loudspeakers continue to be as relevant as ever when it comes to shorter-throw systems for live sound applications and installations.

Alongside Wavefront Precision and TORUS arrays, the exciting FlexPoint™ Series completes a trio of premium loudspeaker categories to deliver the Martin Audio signature sound experience from the intimacy of the smallest gallery to the largest festival.

Where to Buy or Rent

With state-of-the-art acoustic design and technical innovations throughout, the FlexPoint Series sets a new benchmark in performance and versatility for compact, standalone loudspeakers. FlexPoint systems deliver the very highest quality sound to match the expectations of prestige venues and top-flight touring artists, while their passive two-way configuration heeds the need to reduce running costs and amplifier count.
Comprising five models, the FlexPoint Series covers a vast range of professional applications—from live sound reinforcement, theatre sound and Corporate AV to distributed sound systems for installations and immersive environments. From the miniature FP4 to the powerful FP15, FlexPoint loudspeakers are compact and discreet — providing ultimate clarity, detail and coverage at all sound levels without affecting sight lines or detracting from venue architecture.
FlexPoint systems are also designed to integrate perfectly with Wavefont Precision and TORUS arrays where fill and delay loudspeakers are required — ensuring the same superb sonic characteristics and consistent coverage throughout the venue.
Coaxial Point Source Innovation

Coaxial Point Source technology lies at the heart of FlexPoint systems. While the frequency response of non-coaxial systems varies off-axis depending on the listening position, a coaxial system improves summation of the LF and HF sections at the crossover point — resulting in a smoother and more consistent frequency response off-axis.

Additionally, FlexPoint coaxial drivers exhibit exemplary dispersion patterns — achieved by trademark innovative acoustic technology which starts by incorporating a two-stage waveguide within the magnet structure. The first stage of the waveguide blends the circular exit of the HF compression driver into a slot exit. The second stage merges the slot exit into a specially contoured LF cone which determines the overall coverage pattern. This approach yields several important benefits:

  • It achieves constant directivity characteristics in the horizontal plane.
  • It avoids a separate add-on horn which would impede the wavefront from the cone and cause irregularities in the frequency response, both on and off-axis.
  • With the perimeter of the cone acting as the horn mouth, pattern control extends to a lower frequency than would be possible with a smaller add-on horn.
  • While many traditional through-the-pole designs can suffer from high frequency beaming, the FlexPoint two-stage waveguide maintains wide constant horizontal coverage out to very high frequencies.


Adaptable, Multi-Purpose Enclosures

FlexPoint enclosures are constructed from birch plywood, finished in hardwearing paint and available in black as standard. Steel grilles with a triple-layer polyester backing present a discreet, professional appearance, while resisting dust and water ingress to IP54 environmental rating.

With the exception of the miniature FP4, each model in the range features a multi-angle enclosure — facilitating either portrait or landscape orientation by rotating the driver within the enclosure. To make this operation quick and easy, and without the need for tools, the grille is secured by proprietary quick-release latches, and the driver fixed to the baffle by means of captive release clamps. Loosening these by hand allows the driver to be quickly rotated through 90° and retightened.


Flexible Deployment Options

Threaded inserts in each FlexPoint enclosure support a wide range of mounting options and accessories, depending on the model. These include eyebolt suspension, yoke, wall bracket, truss and mic stand mounting for the smaller models. The larger models also incorporate dual pole-mount sockets into the base of the enclosures and have a rigging bar accessory option for truss mounting that allows quick deployment with easy down-tilt adjustment.


Flexible Deployment Options

Subwoofer Flexibility

Where required, Martin Audio SX subwoofers can be used in conjunction with FlexPoint systems to extend low-frequency performance and impact. SX subwoofers offer a full complement of options from single and double 10”, 12”, 15” and 18” as well as a cardioid 15” and 18” and the ultimate subwoofer performance of the Hybrid® horn/reflex loaded SXH218.

Prediction Software

Whether utilised in standalone applications or augmenting other Martin Audio systems, FlexPoint loudspeakers work in conjunction with DISPLAY 3 prediction and modelling software.


Flexible Electronics

FlexPoint systems support a flexible electronics package but must include either a Martin Audio DSP amplifier or controller in order to access settings.

For the optimum sound performance, Martin Audio iKON amplifiers with onboard DSP are recommended.

Alternatively, but for primarily installation projects, Martin Audio VIA amplifiers in conjunction with a DX4.0 system controller, or DX0.4 / DX0.6 controller will provide a more cost-effective option.

When used with iKON amplifiers or DX4.0 controllers, systems utilise Vu-Net. When used with DX0.4 or DX0.6 controllers, systems have standalone software.
