Meyer Sound Announces New Self-Powered UPQ-1P Wide Coverage Loudspeaker

Meyer Sound has announced the release of the self-powered UPQ-1P wide coverage loudspeaker. With its exceptional power-to-size ratio and pristine sound quality, the new Meyer Sound loudspeaker is sure to find its place in theatrical, nightclub, house of worship and corporate AV applications.

The latest addition to the company’s famed UltraSeries™ of loudspeaker products, UPQ-1P demonstrates the same consistent and smooth sonic signature of Meyer Sound products found in an impressive list of Broadway productions as well as performance venue and nightclub installations. UPQ-1P delivers a robust peak power output of 136 dB SPL with low distortion while offering flexible rigging options, wide vertical coverage and gradual off-axis rolloff to accommodate a range of installation requirements.

“Meyer Sound products have been widely used in theaters, churches and live venues. Now our customers are demanding smaller and lighter loudspeakers with high-quality performance across the frequency range,? says John Meyer, CEO and Co-founder of Meyer Sound. “UPQ-1P is the answer to their request, and with the same coherent phase response that people have come to expect from Meyer Sound products.?

In a patented trapezoidal enclosure, UPQ-1P weighs in at 105 pounds (47.63 kg) and measures 19 inches x 28 inches x 18 inches (482.60 mm x 711.20 mm x 457.20 mm). The high-performance loudspeaker is distinguished by its 80-degree by 50-degree constant Q horn, which provides exceptionally uniform response throughout the wide coverage area and gentle high-frequency rolloff.

Designed and manufactured by Meyer Sound at its Berkeley, Calif. headquarters, UPQ-1P’s drivers meet stringent performance specifications and rigorous quality controls. Its high-frequency section employs a four-inch diaphragm compression driver and a 15-inch neodymium magnet cone driver provides low-frequency content. For additional sub bass power, Meyer Sound 600-HP and 700-HP subwoofers are fitting complements.

As a self-powered Meyer Sound loudspeaker, the UPQ-1P carries integral amplification, complex crossover, driver protection, and frequency and phase correction circuitry onboard. This ensures a flat acoustical amplitude and phase response across its wide operating range of 55 Hz to 18 kHz.

UPQ-1P features versatile rigging end plates incorporating threaded M10 attachment points for basic eyebolt rigging, and Meyer Sound’s easy-to-use QuickFly® MYA UPQ mounting yoke is available as an option. Additional QuickFly rigging, flying and mounting systems will be available in the future.

The UPQ-1P will start shipping in May 2008. A narrow coverage version of the UPQ loudspeaker is in development; the UPQ-2P will feature a 50-degree by 50-degree narrow and symmetrical coverage pattern.
