Meyer Sound Launches 3 New Loudspeakers
Meyer Sound introduces 3 new 48-volt, DC-powered loudspeakers.
UPM-1XP 48 V DC loudspeaker is the low-voltage version of the UPM-1P three-way loudspeaker. The UPM-1XP is capable of 123 dB peak SPL over an operating frequency range of 75 Hz to 20 kHz.
UPJunior-XP 48 V DC VariO loudspeaker is designed to combine the advantages of the low-voltage, self-powered concept with the VariO constant directivity horn. The 80 x 50-degree pattern can be changed from horizontal to vertical orientation. Power output is 126 dB peak over a 70 Hz to 20 kHz operating range.
UMS-1XP 48 V DC subwoofer is designed to extend low-voltage system response to an operating frequency range of 25 Hz – 160 Hz and a peak SPL of 127 dB at 1 meter. Dual 10-inch cone drivers included.
Meyer Sound self-powered low-voltage systems incorporate on-board amplifiers and signal processing. Unlike their AC-powered cousins, the UPM-1XP, UPJunior-XP, and UMS-1XP draw DC power from a remote rack-mount power supply. The loudspeakers receive 48-volt DC power and balanced audio via a five-pin connector. These systems can be installed using Class 2 wiring without using conduit. "Amplifier circuits are designed to store power for peak demands, allowing the flexibility of lengthy cable runs while still preserving the advantages of self-powered systems," according to Meyer Sound. RMS remote monitoring system is available for monitoring of loudspeaker and amplifier parameters as well as individual loudspeaker muting.
In addition to the newly announced systems, which will begin shipping in April 2012, Meyer Sound’s low-voltage, DC-powered product line also includes the UP-4XP loudspeaker, MM-4XP miniature self-powered loudspeaker, MM-4XPD directional miniature loudspeaker, and the MM-10 miniature subwoofer. These products can be ordered with custom colors to match any decor.
