Meyer Sound defined the point source array with the classic
UPA-1 in 1980, and the self-powered UPA-1P remains one of our top sellers
today. With the tremendous technology advances of the last 12 years built
into the JM-1P, we now are doing more than announcing a new product. We
are redefining point source systems.
The optional RMS remote monitoring system provides comprehensive monitoring
of system parameters on a Windows-based computer.
Technology Designed for Horizontal Control:
The technology of the JM-1P provides a versatility few other loudspeakers
can match. The new horn design in the JM-1P, combined with Meyer Sound's
patented REM ribbon emulation manifold, yields extremely tight pattern
control. This means that tight-packed JM-1P arrays exhibit very little
interaction between horns, and single cabinets or pairs of cabinets can
be deployed to deliver coverage only to desired areas, with minimal reflections
off of walls and other surfaces, or interactions with other parts of the
sound system. Meyer Sound's emphasis on low distortion enables the JM-1P
to maintain its clarity and pattern control even at high levels.
These characteristics, along with the ease of creating a groundstacked
horizontal array, make the JM-1P an excellent tool for corporate AV applications.
The ability to form small arrays of two or three cabinets with strict
control of dispersion makes the JM-1P perfect for distributed systems
in sports venues. The exceptional size-to-power ratio and the simplicity
of self-powered systems make the JM-1P an ideal candidate for AV companies
wishing to have a sound system that is simple to set up and use, yet impressively
clean and powerful.
The JM-1P is a two-way system employing components designed and manufactured
by Meyer Sound at its Berkeley, Calif., headquarters. Meyer Sound's rigorous
quality assurance guarantees the performance and consistency of each loudspeaker.
The JM-1P's wide, 53 Hz to 18 kHz operating frequency range and prodigious
output of 138 dB max peak SPL (measured at one meter) is produced by one
15-inch, long-excursion, low frequency cone driver, and a four-inch high
frequency compression driver coupled through a patented REM manifold to
an extremely accurate constant-Q horn. This horn, which distinguishes
the JM-1P, exhibits sharply controlled 20-degree horizontal by 60-degree
vertical coverage. The unit's consistent polar response and trapezoidal
enclosure allows for tightly packed arrays with each loudspeaker adding
20 degrees to the horizontal coverage of the array (with minimal overlap
in high frequencies).
As a Meyer Sound self-powered system, the JM-1P houses integrated electronics
for crossover, driver protection, and frequency and phase response correction,
in addition to its proprietary 1275 W (2550 W peak) class AB/H amplifier.
Meyer Sound's RMS remote monitoring system keeps you informed of the status
of all important system parameters.
