LEO marks Meyer Sound’s first live sound product packaged as a system, consisting of the self-powered LEO-M line array loudspeaker, 1100-LFC low-frequency control element (also self-powered), and Galileo Callisto loudspeaker management system. MICA arrays can be integrated seamlessly as down fills, and JM-1P as in and out fills.
Because of its linearity, LEO can translate a mix to the audience with precision, with sonic tonality and balance unchanged regardless of levels. As a result, the engineer can focus more on the mix rather than compensating for unpredicted behavior found in non-linear designs.
LEO-M’s REM manifold, cone and compression drivers, and the precise phase and magnitude alignment are all specifically intended to enable accurate vertical and horizontal coverage control, even at continuously high output levels. Meyer Sound also states that as a 2-way element, LEO-M has fewer crossovers and interactions between different drivers, and facilitates an even frequency response across all frequencies.
An optimally tuned, vented cabinet houses the 1100-LFC’s two linear, high-excursion 18-inch cone drivers. A 2-channel Class AB/H bridged amplifier with complementary MOSFET output stages supplies ample continuous and peak power to the drivers. The amplifier, control electronics, and power supply are integrated into a single, rear-mounted module that is field replaceable. The 1100-LFC’s operating frequency range is 28 Hz to 100 Hz.
Note that Meyer Sound will be presenting a webinar on ProSoundWeb on November 15 at 2 pm (U.S. Eastern time) to further discuss and explain its work on sound system linearity. Find out more about the webinar here.
