MEYER SOUND LEOPARD : Compact Linear Line Array Loudspeaker
The LEOPARD compact linear line array loudspeaker is a member of Meyer Sound’s award-winning LEO® Family of loudspeakers, designed to reproduce audio faithfully with tremendous power, superior intelligibility, and extremely low distortion. Like its bigger siblings LEO-M™ and LYON™, LEOPARD delivers the advantages of self-powered design, linear response, and precise directional control.
MEYER SOUND LEOPARD - Features and Benefits:
- Compact cabinet with small footprint and extraordinary power-to-size ratio
- High peak power output with exceptional linearity and transient reproduction, at any output level, with extremely low distortion
- Self-powered for simplified setup and increased reliability
- Flexible rigging and transport options
- Integrates easily with Meyer Sound’s LYON, 900-LFC, and 1100-LFC loudspeakers
MEYER SOUND LEOPARD - Applications:
- Small- to medium-sized touring and fixed installations
- Clubs, theatres, houses of worship, corporate AV, and theme parks
- Downfill, midfill, sidefill, and outfill for LYON; midfill, sidefill, and outfill for LEO-M
LEOPARD breaks new ground in loudspeaker array performance, providing exceptional phase coherence and consistent coverage in a light, compact cabinet, making it extremely versatile. Its innovative amplifier, driver, and horn designs ensure that LEOPARD systems reproduce any sound source with linearity over a wide dynamic range, from speech and classical music to rock and EDM. LEOPARD loudspeakers are optimized for use with minimal processing, yielding excellent performance right out of the box.
LEOPARD is portable and easy to configure. Its low weight and narrow profile make it well-suited for small- to medium-sized touring acts and fixed installations, where scalability and ease of rigging are essential. A newly-designed class D amplifier affords unprecedented efficiency to LEOPARD, significantly lowering distortion while reducing power consumption and operating temperature. The onboard amplifier and control circuitry are contained in a single, field-replaceable module. For low-frequency enhancement, LEOPARD pairs with Meyer Sound’s 900-LFC low-frequency control element, which can be flown as part of LEOPARD arrays without transition hardware. The 900-LFC shares with LEOPARD the advantages of excellent power-tosize ratio, improved efficiency, and versatility.
In addition to working as a standalone system, LEOPARD can also be used as a supplemental fill loudspeaker in LEO-M and LYON systems. LEOPARD systems can be driven by Meyer Sound’s Galileo Callisto™ 616 array processor, which provides matrix routing, alignment, and processing for array components. To guarantee optimum performance, LEOPARD systems should be designed with Meyer Sound’s MAPP™ software.
LEOPARD and 900-LFC loudspeakers work with Meyer Sound’s RMS™ remote monitoring system, which provides comprehensive monitoring of system parameters from a Mac® or Windows® based computer. LEOPARD includes Meyer Sound’s QuickFly® rigging with captive GuideALinks™, which allows easy setting of splay angles from 0.5 to 15 degrees. Rigging options include the MG-LEOPARD/900 multipurpose grid, MCF LEOPARD caster frame, PBF-LEOPARD pull-back frame, and MTF-LYON/ LEOPARD transition frame.
"With the LEO Family we set out to reduce distortion to the theoretical limits and both LEOPARD and 900-LFC bring us even closer to the goal of the ultimate linear loudspeaker system. Quality components, amazing technology, incredible convenience, and elegant design are critically important, but it’s really the results that matter. To borrow an analogy from the auto industry, sometimes you have to just get behind the wheel and take it for a spin. With LEOPARD and 900 LFC, you just have to listen.”
