The compact Meyer Sound UPJ-1XP
was designed for flexibility. With a simple turn of its 80-degree by 50-degree
VariO rotatable horn, it can provide optimum horizontal or vertical coverage
for any installation. With its extraordinary size-to-power ratio and generous
rigging options, the Meyer Sound UPJ-1XP is well suited for use as a single,
primary loudspeaker or as part of multicabinet horizontal and vertical
arrays. Applications include AV presentations, small- to medium-sized
sound reinforcement systems, fill, delay, effects, and distributed systems.
Designed and manufactured at Meyer Sound's factory in Berkeley, California,
the Meyer Sound UPJ-1XP's transducers include one 10-inch cone driver
and one 3-inch diaphragm compression driver. The proprietary drivers are
powered by an onboard 2-channel, Class-D power amplifier that delivers
300 watts of total burst power.
With IntelligentDC technology, the Meyer Sound UPJ-1XP receives power
and balanced audio from a single loudspeaker connector, available as a
Phoenix™ 5-pin male, sealed SwitchCraft® EN3TM 5-pin male, or sealed ECO-M
7-pin male. The use of composite multiconductor cables (such as Belden®
1502 or equivalent) allows a single cable to carry both DC power and balanced
audio to the Meyer Sound UPJ-1XP. The loudspeaker's amplifier and signal-processing
circuits store DC power and tolerate voltage drops, thereby accommodating
light-gauge cables and lengthy cable runs.
Meyer Sound UPJ-1XP loudspeaker systems require an external MPS-488HP
IntelligentDC power supply. The rack mount multichannel power supply can
deliver DC power and balanced audio to eight UPJ-1XP loudspeakers at cable
lengths up to 150 feet with just 1 dB of loss in peak SPL using 18 AWG
wire. Longer cable runs are possible with heavier wire gauges.
The Meyer Sound UPJ-1XP cabinet is coated with a textured black finish
and includes heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant 6061-T6 aluminum end plates
with threaded M8 attachment points for basic eyebolt rigging and third-party
pole assemblies. QuickFly® rigging options include the MAAM-UPJ array
adapter (also made from 6061-T6 aluminum), MUB-UPJ U-bracket, and MYA-UPJ
mounting yoke assembly. Other options include weather protection, custom
color finishes, and cabinets without handles.
