Meyer Sound has announced the release of the 600-HP compact high-power subwoofer. Including the power of the 700-HP ultrahigh-power subwoofer to a MICA-compatible package, the self-powered 600-HP was designed for use in flown applications. The 600-HP’s operating frequency range of 33 Hz to 150 Hz provides a complement to other Meyer Sound self-powered products, including the UPA-1P compact wide coverage or UPJ-1P compact VariO™ loudspeakers and flown MICA array.
The 600-HP's power and bandwidth handle high continuous operating levels and extreme transient information with minimal distortion in its operating frequency range. The unit is a self-powered system, and the transducers, amplification and control electronics work symbiotically.
The 600-HP's tuned cabinet houses two newly designed, back-vented, long-excursion, 15-inch cone drivers manufactured by Meyer Sound. The drivers have been engineered for efficiency at low frequencies to provide optimal performance in subwoofer applications. Each driver features a 4-inch voice coil, and is rated to handle 1,200 AES watts.
An integral 2-channel Class-AB/H amplifier with complementary MOSFET output stages supplies total power of 2,250 watts (4,000 watts peak). The amplifier, control electronics and power supply are integrated into a single field-replaceable module mounted in the rear of the cabinet. The cabinet is constructed of hardwood and coated with a textured black finish. Integral metal grilles lined with acoustical black mesh protect the cone drivers.
When fitted with the optional rigging frame, the 600-HP can also travel in stacks on the MCF-MICA caster frame. Exterior cabinet dimensions are suitable for both European and U.S. truck widths. An optional QuickFly rigging kit is available, installed at the factory or as a field upgrade.
Options available for the 600-HP include weather protection and finishes in custom colors for fixed installations and other situations requiring specific cosmetics.
An optional RMS remote monitoring system module allows comprehensive monitoring of all key system parameters on any RMS-equipped host PC. In addition, Meyer Sound’s MAPP Online multipurpose acoustical prediction program allows quick prediction of coverage, frequency response, impulse response and maximum output of the 600-HP and other Meyer Sound loudspeakers and loudspeaker systems.
