Frankfurt, Germany (March 23, 2012)—Meyer Sound has announced the 1100-LFC low-frequency control element, a new self-powered loudspeaker for touring and installations that reproduces the operating range of 28 Hz to 100 Hz.
“As an industry, we are accustomed to subwoofers carrying a distinct harmonic tone. This ‘sound’ of any subwoofer becomes part of how a product is evaluated,” says John Meyer, CEO of Meyer Sound. “Linear loudspeakers lack this enhancement, and are measured by their ability to precisely reproduce the electronic signals without altering the sonic characteristics. Bringing Meyer Sound’s linear technology and our advances in loudspeaker headroom and peak level control to the low-frequency domain makes the 1100-LFC quite an exciting direction for us.
“Only when the signal that goes into a loudspeaker is identical to the output signal can you accurately predict, control, and measure the coverage pattern of a multi-element soundsystem,” continues Meyer.
The 1100-LFC’s high peak power output is claimed to enable transient reproduction and low-frequency clarity at extreme operating levels. “For those who have worked to keep obtrusive low-frequency energy away from the stage, walls, and neighborhoods, MAPP Online Pro [acoustical prediction program] has been great for us to virtually experiment different design concepts,” says Luke Jenks, Meyer Sound’s product manager, loudspeaker products. “The 1100-LFC completes this picture as a tool that allows us to control the low-end coverage pattern in a large-scale powerful and high-fidelity system like never before.”
The 1100-LFC can integrate in a Mica or Milo line array or a JM-1P arrayable loudspeaker system. RMS remote monitoring system provides monitoring of system parameters. Weather protection and custom-color finishes are available.
Meyer Sound will begin shipping the 1100-LFC low-frequency control element in June, 2012.
