Meyer Array Offers Predictable Coverage

Meyer Sound announced the coming release of its JM-1P arrayable loudspeaker. The self-powered, high-Q system is designed to integrate in tight-packed clusters. The speaker's 20-degree horizontal by 60-degree vertical pattern delivers coverage while minimizing reverberation in large or reflective acoustical environments.

Meyer Sound announced the coming release of its JM-1P arrayable loudspeaker. The self-powered, high-Q system is designed to integrate in tight-packed clusters where horizontal coverage must be scaled to exacting requirements, according to the company. Meyer Sound officials said the speaker's 20-degree horizontal by 60-degree vertical pattern delivers coverage while minimizing reverberation in large or reflective acoustical environments.

Single JM-1P cabinets can be used as a point-source system in either horizontal or vertical orientations. The loudspeaker is also suited to critical applications, including theaters, houses of worship, theme parks, stadiums, concert halls, and nightclubs. In touring sound, it offers flexible solutions for center- and side-fill systems, according to the company.

The JM-1P features Meyer Sound's REM ribbon emulation manifold technology, which results in low distortion and a tight pattern control, while a constant-Q horn ensures a uniform response throughout the coverage area. Quickfly rigging options allow for easy mounting and flying in a variety of applications.

"The JM-1P gives sound designers the flexibility to accurately tailor coverage in highly reverberant or oddly shaped environments," said John Meyer, CEO of Meyer Sound, in a statement. "You can conform your horizontal coverage to fit the room, so you maintain a smooth response at all seats while avoiding echoes or excessive reverberation."

The JM-1P's high-frequency section is driven by a 4-inch diaphragm compression driver, complemented by a 15-inch long-excursion cone transducer for the low-mid section. Power is supplied by a dual-channel class AB/H amplifier with a total power output of 1,275 watts (2,550 watts peak), while onboard processing includes electronic crossover, comprehensive driver protection, and correction filters for flat frequency and phase responses.
