Berkeley, CA (March 19, 2010)–Meyer Sound has announced Mina, the smallest member of the Milo family of self-powered line array loudspeakers; the speaker will begin shipping in June.
Designed for live sound and installation applications facing size and weight limitations, Mina is aimed at smaller venues such as theatres, ballrooms, and houses of worship. Mina is less than 18.5 inches wide, yet reportedly capable of producing up to 128 dB SPL at one meter. Its operating frequency ranges from 75 Hz to 18 kHz over a 100-degree horizontal coverage area. Each Mina loudspeaker weighs 47 pounds, making it a possibility for integrators working with historic theatres and other venues with strict rigging requirements. Mina can be installed as main arrays, and can integrate with M’elodie and Mica line arrays as fill subsystems.
In a Meyer Sound-patented trapezoidal enclosure, a three-inch high-frequency compression driver is coupled to a low-distortion, constant directivity horn through a new acoustical combining manifold derived from the proprietary Rem ribbon emulation manifold. Two 6.5-inch neodymium magnet cone drivers produce the low and mid frequencies.
Mina deploys Meyer Sound’s new three-channel Class-D power amplifier and has 950 Watts of output (1900 W peak). The optional RMS remote monitoring software reports all operating parameters of each amplifier to the system operator’s computer. Other available options include weather protection and custom colors.
