MEYER SOUND UPJunior: Ultra-Compact VariO Loudspeaker
Meyer Sound’s UPJunior ultracompact VariO
loudspeaker brings the sonic signature, versatile rigging, and extraordinary
power-to-size ratio of the UPJ-1P to a smaller package. The Meyer Sound
UPJunior combines the advantages of self-powered systems with the placement
and arraying flexibility afforded by a VariO rotatable horn. Though remarkably
compact and lightweight, the Meyer Sound UPJunior produces a robust peak
power output of 126 dB SPL at 1 meter, making it suitable for use either
singly as a primary loudspeaker or in multi-cabinet horizontal or vertical
arrays. Applications include A/V presentations, small- to medium-sized main
sound reinforcement systems, fill, delay, effects, under-balcony or under-canopy
coverage and distributed systems.

- Exceptional fidelity and power to size ratio
- Surprising power capability in a compact package
- Extraordinarily flat amplitude and phase response
for tonal accuracy and precise imaging
- Constant-Q horn affords uniform response throughout
- Predictable and consistent performance ensures
system design flexibility
- Rotatable VariO horn provides versatile coverage
options, whether loudspeakers are oriented horizontally or vertically
MEYER SOUND UPJunior APPLICATIONS:
- Portable and installed audio-visual systems
- Theatrical sound reinforcement
- Front and under-balcony fill
- Conference centers, presentations, ballrooms
and houses of worship
- Stage Monitoring (with optional MAAM Adapter)
MEYER SOUND UPJunior EVOLUTION AND ADAPTATION - FLEXIBILITY:
Rotate the horn to change the coverage while maintaining the orientation
of the cabinet.
Alter the orientation of the cabinet while maintaining the coverage pattern.
The Meyer Sound UPJunior was
bred for flexibility: whether oriented vertically or horizontally, it
can provide narrow, targeted coverage or wide coverage, with a simple
turn of the VariO rotatable horn, changing its 80° x 50° coverage
pattern between the horizontal and vertical planes. In size and weight,
the Meyer Sound UPJunior fits into the UltraSeries between the Meyer Sound
UPM and Meyer Sound UPJ series loudspeakers.
The cabinet incorporates aluminum end plates that provide unprecedented
mounting, flying, and arraying flexibility. Strategically placed metric
M8 threaded points allow simple mounting using either eyebolts or third-party
pole assemblies. QuickFly rigging options including the MAA-UPJunior array
adapter (also used when laying the cabinet horizontally for use as a stage
monitor), MLB-UPJunior U-bracket, and the MYA-UPJunior mounting yoke assembly.
Other options include weather protection and custom color finishes for
applications requiring specific cosmetics.
The UPJunior horn coverage is imprinted on the horn lip for easy reference.
MEYER SOUND UPJunior SELF POWERED ADVANTAGE:
The low-mid frequency section of the Meyer
Sound UPJunior employs an 8-inch neodymium magnet cone driver, while the
high-frequency section utilizes an efficient 0.75-inch exit, 2-inch diaphragm
compression driver. Both drivers are designed and manufactured by Meyer
Sound in Berkeley, California.
As a self-powered loudspeaker, the Meyer Sound UPJunior incorporates
a two-channel, class AB/bridged power amplifier and sophisticated control
circuitry housed within the cabinet, dramatically simplifying setup and
installation. The UPJunior’s on-board amplifier delivers 300 watts
of total burst power. The optional RMS™ module allows comprehensive
monitoring of all key system parameters from a Windows®-based computer.
