While distributed loudspeakers are often employed in
an attempt to overcome reverberation and improve intelligibility, large
venues pose problems of scale that conventional loudspeakers designs cannot
address. The Meyer Sound SB-2 provides an effective solution to these
problems. Featuring a tight 20-degree coverage pattern with high output
capability, the Meyer Sound SB-2 offers the ability to cover individual
zones with highly intelligible, full-range sound while avoiding overlapping.
A hybrid, two-way system, the Meyer Sound SB-2 uses a waveguide to achieve
directionality at high frequencies and a parabolic array of cone drivers
at mid-to-low frequencies.
Because the Meyer Sound SB-2 achieves very tight directional control
in the critical mid frequencies, it enables designers of distributed systems
to circumvent the usual tradeoffs between even sound pressure levels and
minimized combing. Its tight directional control also minimizes reverberation,
maximizing intelligibility. And with its high peak SPL output, the Meyer
Sound SB-2 can throw over much longer distances than conventional loudspeakers.
The Meyer Sound SB-2 comprises 28 4-inch cone drivers, a 2-inch throat
(4-inch diaphragm) compression driver, an integral complementary MOSFET
power amplifier with 1240 watts burst capability, optimized signal processing
circuitry, and compatibility with RMS remote monitoring system.
