The Ultra-X40 incorporates a three-channel, Class-D amplifier

Meyer Sound has completed a redesign of its point source loudspeakers and unveiled Ultra-X40, a new series that features a concentric driver configuration with dual 8-inch neodymium magnet cone drivers coupled to a low–mid waveguide surrounding the single 3-inch diaphragm high-frequency compression driver. The 110° x 50° Constant-Q HF horn is field rotatable and reportedly ensures a uniform bandwidth coverage pattern in both horizontal or vertical orientation. The Ultra-X40 also incorporates a three-channel, Class-D amplifier that produces a total peak output power of 1,950W and a low power consumption. Preliminary performance specifications include an operating frequency range of 60Hz to 18kHz, with linear peak SPL of 130.5dB measured with M-Noise, free-field at 4m and referred to 1m.

M-Noise has been developed following extensive spectral analysis of the varying crest factors in music and how these measurements compare to pink noise. It is a test signal that will provide standardised measurement of a loudspeaker system’s maximum linear output. M-Noise can reportedly be used to determine the linear peak SPL of any loudspeaker system, regardless of manufacturer, size or design.

‘It’s vital to have an accurate and consistently repeatable way to measure the linear peak SPL of a loudspeaker when reproducing music,’ said vice president and chief loudspeaker designer, Pablo Espinosa. ‘Pink noise may get you in the ballpark but you could still be off by 6dB or more when you switch to music programme. However, if you measure your maximum level using M‑Noise, you will know for certain your real-world limit for sustained, linear and full-bandwidth music reproduction.’


Meyer Sound has also added two further products to its catalogue: the MPS-482HP and the UPQ-D3. The MPS-482HP is a two-channel, half rack-space power supply with audio and 48V DC and can be used to expand the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of Meyer Sound’s IntelligentDC remotely self-powered systems. The UPQ-D3 from Meyer Sound will become the third member of the UPQ series and incorporates a new Class-D amplifier module and an 80° x 80° coverage option. The company has also redesigned the UPQ-D1 and UPQ-D2 cabinets and reduced their weight by 12%.
