Berkeley, CA (May 29, 2018)—The UP-4slim is a new ultra-compact loudspeaker from Meyer Sound intended for use in installation settings where audio systems have to understated and able to blend into the space’s décor.
The UP-4slim incorporates Meyer Sound’s IntelligentDC technology, making it the first IntelligentDC multi-way loudspeaker to be housed in an all-aluminum enclosure.
The UP-4slim is a three-way system comprising two 4-inch cone drivers, a 1-inch metal dome tweeter, a three-channel amplifier and dedicated signal processing. The two cone drivers work in parallel at lower frequencies, with one rolling off in the midrange to prevent comb-filtering effects. The high-frequency driver is mounted on a conical waveguide, and the integral three-channel amplifier produces 500 W total output power.
The UP-4slim’s operating frequency range is 65 Hz to 18 kHz, and the aluminum enclosure is ported, damped and braced to minimize resonance while maintaining uniform response to the lower frequency limit. Real-world linear peak acoustic output is 110 dB SPL using unfiltered pink noise.
The UP-4slim receives balanced audio signal and 48 V DC from a remote, rack-mount MPS-488HP power supply and signal distribution unit. Connections are via a single 5-conductor cablewith termination on a 5-pin Phoenix connector. The optional RMS Remote Monitoring System provides a display of loudspeaker operating status on a Windows or Mac computer.
The UP-4slim measures 15.90 inches high, 4.29 inches wide and 5.69 inches deep (404 mm x 109 mm x 145 mm). Weight is 14 pounds (5.9 kg). The UP-4slim may be installed using the optional U-bracket or mounting yoke. The M8-threaded top and bottom rigging plates also can be fitted to the optional external pole mount for portable applications.
The UP-4slim will start shipping in June.
