Meyer Sound has introduced the UP-4slim ultra-compact installation loudspeaker.
The UP-4slim incorporates Meyer Sound’s IntelligentDC technology, integrating self-powered loudspeakers with the installation ease of low voltage systems. It is the first IntelligentDC multi-way loudspeaker to be housed in an all-aluminum enclosure.
''Today’s high-end installation market is driven almost as much by appearance as by performance, and the UP-4slim makes no compromises on either point,'' said Pablo Espinosa, vice president of R&D and chief loudspeaker designer for Meyer Sound. ''When surface mounted, its understated appearance blends discreetly with any room décor, and where soffit mounting is preferred it will slide into tight spaces where other loudspeakers offering comparable performance simply won’t fit.''
The UP-4slim is a three-way system comprising two 4-inch cone drivers, a 1-inch metal dome tweeter, a three-channel amplifier and dedicated signal processing. The two cone drivers work in parallel at lower frequencies, with one rolling off in the midrange to prevent comb-filtering effects.
The high-frequency driver is mounted on a conical waveguide to produce a smooth and consistently wide 100-degree dispersion pattern. The integral three-channel amplifier produces 500 W total output power.
Other options include custom colour matching and weather protection for outdoor installations. Applications for the UP-4slim include foreground/background music and paging in commercial installations, delay and fill systems in performance venues, and portable systems for smaller rooms. It is also ideal for deployment in Meyer Sound’s Constellation active acoustic system.
The UP-4slim will start shipping in June.
