Meyer Sound returns to Federation Square

Meyer Sound returns to Federation Square

Published: ASIA

AUSTRALIA: A recent upgrade at Federation Square in Melbourne has seen Meyer Sound’s existing 15-year-old CQ-1 loudspeaker system replaced with UPQ-1P wide-coverage cabinets. Tested against a number of other outdoor speakers, the UPG model was selected based on its sensitivity and dispersion characteristics. 

The UPG-1P houses a constant-Q horn that provides 80-degrees horizontal and 50-degrees vertical coverage at SPLs up to 136dB. To help the speakers withstand the elements for the next 15 years, the wood is sealed and a two-part topcoat paint similar to that used in military applications is applied. On the inside, the manufacturer states that its circuit boards have been tested to military specifications by an independent laboratory, including testing for salt invasion.

‘After 15 years of continual outdoor service, it came time to replace our Meyer CQ-1 delay speakers in the plaza. They had dealt with all of Melbourne's radical weather changes in this time and only needed minor servicing to keep them running,’ says Andrew Stratton, multimedia systems administrator. ‘We had done testing with other IP-rated outdoor suitable units and found that none come even close sonically to the Meyer Sound range. Side by side comparison of other units showed that the UPQ model offered far better sensitivity and dispersion, in a far more ruggedly built cabinet.’
