Closely following the release of the MICA compact high-power curvilinear array loudspeaker, Meyer Sound is launching the 600-HP compact high-power subwoofer. Bringing the power of the acclaimed 700-HP ultrahigh-power subwoofer to a package ideal for rigging with MICA, the self-powered 600-HP excels in flown applications using its optional QuickFly rigging in situations where the extra low-frequency extension of the 700-HP is not required, or where space is a consideration.
In addition to being the ideal partner in a flown MICA array, the 600-HP's operating frequency range of 33 Hz to 150 Hz provides an appropriate complement to other Meyer Sound self-powered products such as the UPA-1P compact wide coverage or UPJ-1P compact VariO loudspeakers.
The 600-HP's power and bandwidth handle high continuous operating levels and extreme transient information with minimal distortion in its operating frequency range.
Meyer Sound's rigorous design approach has been applied to extract the greatest efficiency from every part of the system, resulting in the 600-HP's effortless reproduction of low frequency transient information. As a self-powered system, the transducers, amplification and control electronics of the 600-HP are created as a symbiotic system that optimizes performance and maximizes its tremendous power.
The 600-HP's efficiently tuned cabinet houses two newly-designed , back-vented, long-excursion, 15-inch cone drivers, manufactured by Meyer Sound. The drivers have been engineered for extreme efficiency at low frequencies in order to provide optimal performance in subwoofer applications. Each driver features a four-inch voice coil and is rated to handle 1,200 AES watts.
An integral two-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 multi-ply hardwood and coated with a textured black finish. Integral metal grilles lined with acoustical black mesh protect the cone drivers.
