Berkeley, CA (January 22, 2021)—Meyer Sound has unveiled its new Leopard-M80 narrow coverage linear line array, available immediate. Leopard-M80 is identical to the existing Leopard design except that it provides an 80° horizontal pattern instead of the 110° coverage of the original model. Because the vertical coverage and rigging hardware are identical to the original Leopard, the new Leopard-M80 can be configured in mixed arrays of both loudspeaker variants; the company suggests using Leopard-M80 loudspeakers in the upper array section to provide focused long-throw coverage while Leopard loudspeakers below spread horizontal coverage for closer seating sections. Arrays configured with only Leopard-M80 loudspeakers can offer a long throw with reduced spill to the sides of the array, aiding use in narrow venues with reflective side walls, as well as in outdoor applications where side spill into adjacent areas must be minimized to conform to noise regulations.
Leopard-M80 also affords additional system configuration options. Leopard enables tighter horizontal control across a broad spectrum of outfill, center fill and delay applications when used in large-scale systems with Leo and Lyon main line array systems. All current Meyer Sound line array loudspeakers share a common acoustical signature. “Leopard has been one of the most successful loudspeakers in our company history and is by far the bestselling member of our line arrays,” notes Meyer Sound vice president and chief loudspeaker designer Pablo Espinosa. “With Leopard-M80 we are offering system designers and rental companies yet another option to create high-performance, cost-effective systems for any application, from a small club with Lina arrays up to massive stadium and festival systems with LEO main arrays scaling down through Lyon and Leopard fill and delay systems.” Meyer Sound • www.meyersound.com
