The products listed below are a few of our most popular items kept in stock, but please do get in touch for a full inventory of our audio equipment.



X15+ Mid-top Speaker

The Blackline X15+ is a very high-output, wide-bandwidth, two-way system. It boasts the highest output of the Blackline range of speakers.
They can be used in passive mode with just one amplifier channel, or engage the active crossover switch on the rear to run in Bi-Amp mode to get the most out of the system. An incredibly loud yet still Hi-Fi & articulate mid-top speaker. When flown we have used these for audiences of up to 350 people with ease.


X12+  Mid-top Speaker

The Blackline X12+ is a high-power, high-output, two-way system equally suited to portable live sound applications and fixed installations. 

Like the X15+ they can be used in passive mode with just one amplifier channel, or engage the active crossover switch on the rear to run in Bi-Amp mode to get the most out of the system. A very Hi-Fi sounding mid-top speaker that still packs a punch. They are also much smaller & lighter than the X15+.


X8  Mid-top Speaker

The Blackline X8 is an ultra-compact passive two-way system with an 8” (200mm)/2” (50mm) voice coil LF driver and a 1” (25mm) HF driver mounted on a 90° x 50° horn which can be easily rotated for horizontal or vertical orientation, depending on venue requirements. Its very small size gives no indication of its high output capability.
Perfect for small stages as foldback monitors, or as discrete speakers for a conference. Very versatile.


SX212  Subwoofer

With twin high-efficiency 12" (300mm)/3" (75mm) voice coil long-throw bass drivers and optimally-sized reflex ports to minimise air noise, the SX212 is the perfect sub-bass where low frequency extension and impact is required from a very compact, unobtrusive, low-profile enclosure.

A very punchy and accurate bass delivery with a surprising amount of depth. Our favorite sounding subwoofers! Perfect for Pubs and smaller venues.



F1MH & F2B

The F1MH / F2B combo from Martin Audio is renown for its ability to deliver incredibly high SPL levels over large areas. It can be rigged quickly to deliver outstanding power and performance, in much smaller configurations than was previously possible. 

Audience experience is enhanced by true musicality, warmth and intelligibility - even at very high volume. This system really excels at live open air events. 

The perfect system for that real concert experience! 

1 Stack a side with subs will cope with audiences up to 600

2 Stacks a side with subs will cope with audiences of up to 1200


Impulse Audio VLF Subwoofers

After extensive testing of several of today's leading manufacturers subwoofer designs, we took the unanimous decision to stock Impulse Audios BMS driven single 18" reflex subwoofers. 

They have a frequency range of 30Hz to 120Hz  ±3db and an SPL output of 130db continuous and 138db peak!

Powered by a powersoft K10, these really generate some serious pressure.

Fantastic sounding subwoofers!



XTA DP448 & DP226

As the demands placed on professional audio systems continue to steadily increase, so must the technology be advanced to maintain the expected quality and useability. Based on a completely new processing platform, running at a native sample rate of 96kHz, the 4 Series set a new standard in terms of performance, flexibility, and ease of use.



Powersoft K series

Powersofts K Series is the flagship of their technologies, ranking in the "Top Class" amplification of the global pro audio market. Offering various power ratings in 6 models ranging from 2 x 2400 W/ch @ 4 Ω to 2 x 9000 W/ch @ 2 Ω, still maintaining the 1 unit size, the K series represents a new milestone of switch mode amplification providing incredible power with the lowest weight and highest efficiency.


Powersoft M Series

The M Series represents a superb value from a premium brand with unparalleled efficiency, good for the environment and easy on the power bill. The size and weight is an absolute minimum thanks to the 1 U standard and the reduced depth of the equipment. M Series models are available in 4 channel - providing up to 1250 W/ch on 4 ohm - and two channels - offering up to 1500 W/ch on 4 ohm


Lab.Gruppen FP+ Series

To achieve the extreme power-to-size ratio in the FP+ Series, LAB GRUPPEN engineers refined and upgraded two proprietary technologies: the regulated switch-mode power supply (R.SMPS™) and the patented Class TD™ output stage. Both are incorporated in all four FP+ Series amplifiers. Working together, this new generation of proprietary circuits produces more power from a smaller package while at the same time maintaining LAB GRUPPEN’s peerless reputation for sonic excellence.
