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.
