Loudspeakers

d&b audiotechnik and Martin Audio Loudspeakers

Loudspeakers make the most important contribution to the "sound" of a PA system and its ability to maintain its low-volume voicing at peak output levels. They also play a vital role in ensuring consistency of sound throughout an arena. Our choice of loudspeakers results from thorough research, including A/B comparisons between a number of widely-known manufacturers, and represents a balance between performance and price-point that errs on the side of performance.
