The Meyer Sound UPM-1XP, with IntelligentDC technology, is a compact, externally-powered, widecoverage loudspeaker for professional sound reinforcement. It offers the same high sound pressure levels, low distortion, and uniform directional control as the Meyer Sound UPM-1P but with the added flexibility of external DC power and lengthy cable runs without AC conduits. The Meyer Sound UPM-1XP is ideally suited for wide-coverage applications requiring a small, inconspicuous cabinet where AC cabling is not feasible.


  • IntelligentDC technology affords the flexibility of lengthy cable runs without AC conduits
  • Extraordinary fidelity and power capability in an ultra-compact package
  • Wide, symmetrical pattern covers broad listening areas
  • Unique crossover design eliminates combing for consistent midrange response
  • Metal dome driver delivers exceptionally smooth high-frequency characteristic
  • Exceptional SPL to size ratio


  • Front and under-balcony fill
  • Theatrical sound reinforcement
  • Portable and installed audio-visual systems
  • Houses of Worship
  • Compact voice reinforcement systems

As a standalone loudspeaker, the Meyer Sound UPM-1XP can be used for vocal reinforcement, frontfill coverage, or delay coverage for underbalcony applications. For full-range systems, the Meyer Sound UPM-1XP can be paired with Meyer Sound’s UMS-1XP ultracompact subwoofer with IntelligentDC technology.

The Meyer Sound UPM-1XP’s high-frequency section includes a 1-inch metal dome tweeter on a constant directivity, high-frequency horn with a 100-degree beamwidth. The low/mid-frequency section includes two 5-inch cone transducers that work in parallel at low frequencies — delivering a combined acoustic output — with one of the drivers rolling off above 320 Hz to prevent interference in the crossover region due to comb filtering effects. The proprietary drivers, which are manufactured at Meyer Sound’s factory in Berkeley, California, are powered by three channels of onboard power amplification that include an active crossover, driver protection, and frequency and phase correction circuitry.

With IntelligentDC technology, the Meyer Sound UPM-1XP receives DC power and balanced audio from a single loudspeaker connector, available as Phoenix™ 5-pin male, sealed SwitchCraft® EN3™ 5-pin male, or sealed ECO-M 7-pin male. Powering the unit from an external source eliminates the need for wiring conduits while still preserving the advantages of self-powered systems. The Meyer Sound UPM-1XP’s amplifier and signal processing circuits store DC power and tolerate voltage drops, thereby accommodating lightgauge cables and lengthy cable runs.

The Meyer Sound UPM-1XP requires an external MPS-488HP IntelligentDC power supply. The single-space 19- inch rack unit distributes DC power and balanced audio to up to eight Meyer Sound UPM-1XP loudspeakers, or other Meyer Sound IntelligentDC loudspeakers. Composite multiconductor cables, such as Belden® 1502 or equivalent, can deliver both DC power and balanced audio to 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 gauges. Meyer Sound’s RMS remote monitoring system is optionally available for the MPS-488HP.

The Meyer Sound UPM-1XP cabinet is coated with a black textured finish and includes three threaded, recessed nut plates (3/8”-16 or metric M10). Optional rigging hardware includes the MYA-UPM mounting yoke, MUB-UPM U-bracket, and MSA-UPM stand adapter. Other UPM-1XP options include weather protection and custom color finishes for fixed installations and installations with specific cosmetic requirements.
