||The new JM-1P arrayable loudspeaker system was the main focus when Meyer Sound returned to PLASA 2009 in London. Also shown on the stand was the new UP-4XP compact loudspeaker, which is powered by a remote 48V power supply and ideally suited for installations as well as portable applications.
The self-powered JM-1P arrayable loudspeaker system provides precise horizontal control in a tight-packed array, while delivering a impressive power output of 138 dB max peak SPL at one meter. The JM-1P's consistent polar response and trapezoidal enclosure allow for tight-packed arrays with each JM-1P cabinet adding 20 degrees to the horizontal coverage of the array, with minimal overlap in high frequencies. An array of three JM-1P loudspeakers provides 60 degrees horizontal coverage; an array of four JM-1P loudspeakers provides 80 degrees of horizontal coverage, and so on. For sound designers working with highly reverberant or oddly shaped spaces, the JM-1P can accurately tailor the horizontal coverage to fit a room with a smooth response maintained throughout the venue, minimizing echoes or excessive reverberation. The JM-1P features easy-to-use QuickFly rigging, and can be flown in both vertical and horizontal configurations.
