The Meyer Sound UPQ-1P also provides extremely high power
output with low distortion in a compact, vented two-way enclosure. In
addition to the constant-Q horn, the loudspeaker features a low frequency
15-inch neodymium magnet cone driver and 4-inch diaphragm compression
driver, which are designed and manufactured at Meyer Sound's Berkeley,
California headquarters. The Meyer Sound UPQ-1P is suitable for a range
of sound reinforcement applications, as a front-of-house main loudspeaker
in small to mid-sized venues, or as a fill loudspeaker in larger systems.
A proprietary two-channel, class AB/H power amplifier with complementary
MOSFET output stages yields a total power output of 1275 W. Audio input
is routed through an electronic crossover and correction filters, as well
as through driver-protection circuitry. Phase-corrected processing ensures
a flat acoustical amplitude and phase response, resulting in exceptional
impulse response and precise imaging. Each amplifier channel has sophisticated
limiters that are easily monitored with the limit LEDs on the unit's rear
The Meyer Sound UPQ-1P's modular amplifier and processing electronics
incorporate Meyer Sound's Intelligent AC power supply, which adapts to
any power voltage worldwide and provides soft-turn on and transient protection.
The Meyer Sound UPQ-1P comes standard with XLR input and looping output
connectors; an enhanced version of the loudspeaker includes polarity switching
and input attenuation (from 0 dB to –18 dB). The UPQ-1P is also
compatible with Meyer Sound's RMS remote monitoring system, which offers
comprehensive monitoring of system parameters on a Windows-based network.
The Meyer Sound UPQ-1P's durable trapezoidal enclosure has a textured,
hard-shell black finish, an integral pole mount receptacle, and versatile
rigging end plates. The end plates are made of heavy-duty, high-strength,
corrosion-resistant 6061-T6 aluminum, with threaded M10 attachment points
for basic eyebolt rigging. QuickFly rigging options include the MPA-UPQ
pick-up and array plate and MYA-UPQ mounting yoke. Other options include
Meyer Sound weather protection, custom cabinets without handles, and custom
color finishes for specific cosmetic requirements.
