Meyer Sound strengthens Leo, Lyon and MJF
Meyer Sound has added the MJF-208 to its family of self-powered stage monitors. The 325mm height low-profile, small footprint wedge weighs 20.4kg and has been designed for applications that require intelligibility over higher output levels. Portability and ease of use for the MJF-208 are enhanced by the MDM-832 distribution module, which can route up to eight channels of AC power, balanced audio and RMS monitoring data to multiple stage monitors.
The American manufacturer has also introduced a rack-mount unit for quick connection and distribution of AC power, audio signals, and RMS to Leo systems in the form of the MDM-5000. It was reportedly created in response to requests for multi-use, turnkey packages for power and signal distribution to larger Meyer Sound systems. Standard multicore connectors for audio and power can be located on the front panel, whilst discrete connectors for audio, RMS and power exist on the rear. By standardising the distribution, the module simplifies cross-rental applications and serves as a tool for streamlining Leo system setups.
Lastly, the Lyon-WXT cabinet is an extended vertical coverage option for the Lyon-W wide-coverage line array loudspeaker. The WXT option extends the vertical coverage of the Lyon-W from nine to 15 degrees, giving the lowest cabinet or two in the array a wider splay angle to achieve uniform coverage at a much steeper downward angle. A principal application for the WXT option will be for 360-degree arena shows, where this extended vertical coverage reduces the number of line array and front-fill loudspeakers required. It maintains the same size and look of a standard Lyon-W loudspeaker allowing it to integrate into a Lyon array without transition frames. Standard Lyon-W loudspeakers can be updated with the Lyon-WXT option kit, allowing rental companies to convert existing inventory as needed.
