MEYER SOUND M'ELODIE : Ultracompact High-Power Curvilinear Array Loudspeaker

Sometimes, big things come in small packages. The self powered Meyer Sound M’elodie ultracompact high-power curvilinear array loudspeaker is a good example. M’elodie is Meyer Sound’s newest generation of a strong family line: the celebrated M Series. Meyer Sound's M’elodie brings the sonic signature and easy to use rigging of the MILO family of loudspeakers, along with an extraordinary power-to-size ratio to a package smaller than the company’s MICA compact high-power curvilinear array loudspeaker. As a result, Meyer Sound's M’elodie is compact enough for small theatres, ballrooms and clubs, as well as being an outstanding performer in theatrical productions and corporate AV applications.

MEYER SOUND M'ELODIE : FEATURES

MEYER SOUND M'ELODIE : APPLICATIONS

  • Exceptional power-to-size ratio
  • Wide and even horizontal coverage pattern
  • Very small footprint keeps a low profile appearance
  • Seamless integration with MICA
  • QuickFly rigging with captive GuideALinks simplifies use in flown or groundstacked arrays, alone or with MICA and/or 600-HP subwoofer
  • Corporate AV
  • Small theatres
  • Houses of worship
  • Ballrooms
  • Downfill or sidefill for systems using MICA
  • Frontfill

While Meyer Sound's M’elodie can be used as a main system in small venues, its broad 100-degree horizontal coverage makes it ideal for use in larger venues, too, as it is designed to integrate seamlessly with MICA. M’elodie’s QuickFly rigging, which features captive GuideALinks for the maximum in flexibility and safety, make it easy to add as downfill to a MICA array, but individual M’elodie cabinets also work exceptionally well for frontfill or under-balcony coverage. Best of all, M’elodie’s small footprint takes up little truck space.

Meyer Sound's M’elodie is the latest self-powered loudspeaker from Meyer Sound, the company that introduced controller-assisted loudspeakers more than 27 years ago and self-powered sound reinforcement systems over 11 years ago. With an all-new low-frequency driver and amplifier, plus Meyer Sound’s famous complex crossover, driver protection, and frequency and phase correction circuitry, M’elodie provides a reliable, low-distortion solution for a key segment of the sound reinforcement market.

M’elodie's diminutive size belies a powerful voice: conservatively rated at a maximum peak output of 131 dB SPL, Meyer Sound's M’elodie is capable of filling rooms much larger than one would expect.

MEYER SOUND M'ELODIE COMPONENTS : The Heart of the System

M’elodie is a three-way system in which each Meyer Sound-designed and manufactured driver is powered by its own amplifier channel.

Low/Mid-Frequency Section:
The low and mid frequencies in Meyer Sound's M’elodie operating frequency range are produced by two new neodymium magnet 8-inch cone drivers with 1.5-inch voice coils. The two drivers work in a two-way configuration in which they operate in parallel at lower frequencies to obtain the greatest acoustic output, while one driver rolls off before the crossover frequency to maintain optimal polar and frequency response through the crossover region.

 

High-Frequency Section:
Meyer Sound's M’elodie uses the same 3-inch diaphragm, 1.2-inch exit, neodymium magnet compression driver found in M’elodie’s larger sibling, MICA, to produce the smooth, extended high-frequency response that is a hallmark of the MILO family. The driver is mounted on one of Meyer Sound’s patented REM manifolds, which is coupled to a low-distortion, 100-degree horizontal coverage, constant directivity horn. The REM produces a wave front with low distortion and radiation behavior similar to that of a high-frequency line source, yet the high output generated by compression drivers. The horn’s smooth, controlled, narrow vertical dispersion minimizes destructive high-frequency interactions between cabinets, an essential quality for line array applications.

A single 3-inch diaphragm, 1.2-inch exit, neodymium magnet compression driver is mounted on Meyer Sound's patented REM manifold.

MEYER SOUND M'ELODIE SELF-POWERED ADVANTAGE

Having manufactured self-powered sound reinforcement loudspeakers since 1995, Meyer Sound has pioneered and refined this technology to produce systems that are powerful and reliable. Self-powered systems eliminate heavy, expensive, amplifier racks and large loudspeaker cables, thereby lowering costs. With no need to calibrate gain and crossover settings, self-powered systems are easy to use and go from the truck to fully rigged and back in minutes.

M’elodie features an all-new, three-channel class AB/H amplifier conservatively rated at 1275 watts total burst output (2550 watts peak). The amplifier/processing module is field replaceable and includes limiting to extend driver life and hold long-term power compression to a minimum. Meyer Sound’s Intelligent AC power supply automatically adjusts for any line voltage worldwide and provides both soft turn-on and transient protection.

Like all Meyer Sound self-powered systems, M’elodie contains all of its amplification and processing circuitry within the cabinet, yielding greater performance, lower overall system cost, and extremely fast setup and teardown. A new, three-channel class AB/H amplifier provides 1275 watts total burst output (2550 watts peak) power to M’elodie.

The increase in performance comes from all of the components being designed as an integrated system from the beginning, rather than being designed separately and then married together. Compromises to accommodate unknown amplifiers or loads in passive systems are entirely eliminated, as are signal losses from long loudspeaker cable runs.

Self-powered systems also enable complete consistency: each component that goes into a Meyer Sound M’elodie cabinet is tested at the factory to insure it performs identically to every other, and final testing is done to confirm consistency of each complete system. Consistency is critical in line array applications, where performance differences corrupt the coupling between cabinets that is the basis of line array theory.

MEYER SOUND M'ELODIE QUICKFLY RIGGING:
Meyer Sound builds all of its products to meet the real needs of its customers. Rigging design is key to a loudspeaker’s practicality, especially for events where efficiency in setup and teardown is paramount. This need led Meyer Sound to create the QuickFly rigging series. The subject of multiple patents, QuickFly broke new ground in providing rigid rigging that allows arrays to travel fully rigged and virtually eliminated the need for pullback cables.
But the innovations didn’t stop there. M’elodie’s QuickFly rigging features captive GuideALinks, which were first introduced with MICA’s rigging. No more sorting through a box of links to find the right one, no need for anyone to risk fingers and hands by placing them between cabinets while pinning links. At Meyer Sound, we know that setup and teardown are often done under pressure, and, while speed is crucial in these situations, working fast brings with it the possibility of accidents. M’elodie’s rigging enables shorter rigging times while reducing the potential for injuries.
  Captive GuideALinks make it safe, easy, and quick to choose any of 12 angle positions.
OPTIONAL COMPONENTS:
  • The MG-M’elodie grid can fly up to 18 M’elodie cabinets with a 7:1 safety ratio or 25 M’elodie cabinets with a 5:1 safety ratio. The grid can also be used for groundstacking M’elodie.
  • The MTF-MICA/M’elodie transition frame facilitates using M’elodie as downfill for a MICA array, for flying M’elodie under the 600-HP high-power subwoofer, or for groundstacking with the 600-HP.
  • The MCF-M’elodie caster frame allows up to five cabinets to be transported fully rigged, and is dimensioned for tight packing in both U.S. and European trucks. Durable nylon covers are also available to make M’elodie completely ready for the road.
  • The MUB-M’elodie U-bracket enables use of M’elodie for frontfill and under-balcony coverage.

MEYER SOUND M'ELODIE OPTIONS:

Custom Colors

M’elodie’s small size presents an elegant, low-profile appearance in applications where aesthetics are important. To complete the effect, M’elodie can be ordered with custom colors to match any environment. Of course, Meyer Sound applies the same meticulous approach to matching a customer paint sample for a custom loudspeaker finish as it does to assuring the highest level of performance in the product.

Rain or Shine

A beautiful look is always beneficial, but outdoor applications require robustness as well. With systems installed everywhere from outdoor shopping malls to cruise ships, Meyer Sound knows what it takes to protect loudspeakers from the elements, so you can order a weather-protected version of M’elodie with the confidence it will operate at its rated specifications, rain or shine.

M’elodie can be ordered in custom colors to accommodate situations where the loudspeaker system needs to blend into the background.

MEYER SOUND M'ELODIE SUBWOOFER INTEGRATION:

The clarity and power M’elodie provides deserves low-frequency support with the same qualities. Meyer Sound’s 600-HP high-power subwoofer provides sufficient low-frequency output for demanding applications, with a maximum peak output of 138 dB SPL over its operating frequency range of 33 Hz to 150 Hz. The 600-HP is the ideal partner for M’elodie when it is desirable to fly a subwoofer as part of a M’elodie array. Flown arrays can be built using the MG-MICA multipurpose grid for the 600-HP and then the MTF-MICA/M’elodie transition frame. The 600-HP can also be groundstacked, and even configured into a horizontal line array for uniform low-frequency coverage over a large area.

For the most extreme applications the 700-HP ultrahigh-power subwoofer can provide M’elodie with unparalleled low-frequency output.

   
 

A 600-HP compact high-power subwoofer with rigging can be flown with M’elodie using the MTF-MICA/M’elodie transition frame.

The 700-HP ultrahigh-power subwoofer is the choice for extreme low-frequency power.  

MEYER SOUND M'ELODIE MICA INTEGRATION:

Plays Well With MICA

With its high power and wide coverage, there is no better downfill option for a MICA array than M’elodie. M’elodie has been designed to match the MILO family sonic signature, so when a performing arts center, theatre, church or other location is medium-large in size or needs higher SPL, the transition from a MICA main system to a M’elodie downfill or sidefill system will be smooth.

Meyer Sound’s RMS remote monitoring system is standard on all M Series models, making it easy to keep an eye on critical performance parameters for all of the loudspeakers in a MICA/M’elodie system.
