MEYER ANNOUNCES COMPACT LINE ARRAY
The latest in Meyer Sound’s flagship Leo family are its smallest and most versatile members. Boasting “tremendous” power-to-size ratio with ultra-low distortion, the patent-pending Leopard line array loudspeaker and the 900-LFC low-frequency control element offer “an unprecedented level of clarity, power, precision, and ease of use,” the company says.
“I’ve always followed my own path in this business, never satisfied until something is the best it can be,” says Meyer founder and CEO John Meyer. “With the Leo family we set out to reduce distortion to the theoretical limits and both Leopard and 900-LFC bring us even closer to the goal of the ultimate linear loudspeaker system.”
Suited to applications from mid-sized touring and live theatre to worship and live performance installations, Meyer says Leopard offers 10 times less distortion with significantly more power than its competitors, with newly designed and highly efficient class-D amplifiers that “virtually eliminate” distortion while consuming less power and generating less heat.
Each loudspeaker is optimised for an array of six cabinets or longer, with default low-mid array compensation for out-of-the-box simplicity. Six Leopard and two 900-LFC loudspeakers can be flown using a half-ton motor, and the new system includes MAPP XT for acoustic prediction, real-time monitoring, a loudspeaker management system, and a new distribution module for routing AC power, audio and RMS signals.
Based on its larger brother the 1100-LFC, the 900-LFC low frequency element is completely neutral with ultra-low distortion, Meyer says. The self-powered subwoofer is ideally matched to Leopard but also suits other Meyer systems including Leo, Lyon and Ultra.
