MEYER SOUND UPJUNIOR-XP : Ultracompact VariO Loudspeaker

The Meyer Sound UPJunior-XP delivers the same sonic signature and robust peak power output as the UPJunior, with the same rotatable VariO horn, while also offering the advantages of IntelligentDC technology, making it an elegant solution for installations where AC cabling is not feasible. Powering the Meyer Sound UPJunior-XP from an external MPS-488HP IntelligentDC power supply affords the flexibility of lengthy cable runs without conduits.


  • IntelligentDC technology affords the flexibility of lengthy cable runs without conduits
  • Exceptional SPL to size ratio
  • Extraordinarily flat amplitude and phase responses for tonal accuracy and precise imaging
  • Constant-Q horn affords uniform response throughout coverage area
  • VariO horn allows loudspeakers to be oriented horizontally or vertically
  • With QuickFly rigging can be mounted as a single cabinet or flown in multicabinet vertical and horizontal arrays


  • Portable and installed AV systems
  • Conference centers, presentations, ballrooms, and houses of worship
  • Theatrical sound reinforcement
  • Frontfill and under-balcony fill

The Meyer Sound UPJunior-XP was designed for flexibility. With its extraordinary size-to-power ratio and generous rigging options, the ultracompact UPJunior-XP is well suited for use as a single, primary loudspeaker or as part of a multicabinet horizontal or vertical array. Applications include AV presentations, small- to medium-sized sound reinforcement systems, fill, delay, effects, and under-balcony coverage. Whether the loudspeaker is oriented horizontally or vertically, its 80-degree by 50-degree VariO horn is easily rotated to obtain the optimum horizontal and vertical coverage for any installation.

Designed and manufactured at Meyer Sound's factory in Berkeley, California, the Meyer Sound UPJunior-XP's transducers include one 8-inch cone driver and one 2-inch diaphragm compression driver with an efficient 0.75-inch exit. 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 UPJunior-XP 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 UPJunior-XP. The loudspeaker's amplifier and signal-processing circuits store DC power and tolerate voltage drops, thereby accommodating light-gauge cables and lengthy cable runs.

The Meyer Sound UPJunior-XP 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 UPJunior-XP 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 UPJunior-XP 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-UPJunior array adapter (also made from 6061-T6 aluminum), MUB- UPJunior U-bracket, and MYA-UPJunior mounting yoke assembly. Other UPJunior-XP options include weather protection and custom color finishes for fixed installations and installations with specific cosmetic requirements.
