The Meyer Sound 500-HP boasts an operating frequency range of 36 Hz to 150 Hz and a peak SPL of 134 dB. Designed and manufactured at Meyer Sound's Berkeley, California headquarters, Meyer Sound's 500-HP two 12-inch cone drivers are engineered for extreme efficiency at low frequencies. The high-excursion, low frequency drivers, each with 4-inch voice coils, are rated for up to 1200 Watts and housed in a tuned, rectangular enclosure that has the same width as Meyer Sound's M'elodie.
The low frequency drivers are driven by a two-channel class AB/H amplifier with complementary MOSFET output stages. Ample headroom is delivered with 1800 W of total burst output (900 W per channel). The 500-HP's modular amplifier and processing electronics are equipped with Meyer Sound's Intelligent AC power supply, which adapts to any power voltage worldwide and provides soft-turn on and transient protection. The amplifier, control electronics, and power supply are field-replaceable modules located in the rear of the enclosure. The optional RMS remote monitoring system allows comprehensive monitoring of system parameters on Windows®-based computers.
The Meyer Sound 500-HP comes standard with plastic bottom skids that protect the enclosure and align with its top slots for secure stacking. The optional Meyer Sound MRF-500 rigging frame uses captive, recessed GuideALinks, located in the front, center, and rear of the frame, that allow the subwoofer to be securely arrayed with other loudspeakers (or safely stowed). A wide range of splay angles and configurations is achieved with different combinations of front, center, and back positions for the GuideALinks, which are easily adjusted with convenient, pinned handles and slots. The rigging frame can be used to array suspended M'elodies below the 500-HP, or it can be connected to the Meyer Sound MG-M'elodie rigging grid to accommodate a variety of flown configurations, including cardioid arrays.
The durable Meyer Sound 500-HP enclosure is constructed of premium birch plywood and textured with a black, hard-shell finish. A hex-stamped, steel grille with acoustical black mesh protects the subwoofer's drivers. Other options include weather protection and custom color finishes for fixed installations and other applications with specific cosmetic requirements.
