Berkley, CA (April 10, 2015)—Meyer Sound has unveiled two new additions to its LEO line array systems: the Leopard line array loudspeaker and the 900-LFC low-frequency control element, both of which will begin shipping this summer.
John Meyer, founder and CEO of Meyer Sound, explained the new additions, noting, “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. Quality components, amazing technology, incredible convenience, and elegant design are critically important, but it’s really the results that matter. To borrow an analogy from the auto industry, sometimes you have to just get behind the wheel and take it for spin. With Leopard and 900 LFC, you just have to listen. Once you hear it, you’ll want it.”
According to the company, the new system offers greater phase coherence and seamless, uniform coverage, with a reported 10 times less distortion. Powering the system are newly designed class-D amplifiers that are said to consume less power and generate less heat. Leopard is intended to be used to anchor a main system in a medium-sized venue or integrate with Lyon in down- and out-fill systems. A half-ton motor can fly a half-dozen Leopard and two 900-LFC loudspeakers, the latter of which is based on its big brother, the 1100-LFC.
The result, says Meyer, is a complete system solution when combined with its new MAPP XT software for acoustic prediction, Compass RMS for real-time system performance monitoring, the Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system, and the new MDM-5000 distribution module for routing AC power, audio, and RMS signals.
