Because of its proprietary, high-frequency horn, the beamwidth remains consistent within close tolerances in both the horizontal and vertical planes, and across the horn’s operating frequency range. Uniformly predictable polar behavior takes much of the guesswork out of system design and assures optimal system performance.
A proprietary three-channel, class D digital power amplifier powers the ULTRA-X20 loudspeaker, which has a total peak power output of 860 watts. Audio processing includes electronic crossover, correction filters for phase and frequency response, and driver protection circuitry. Phase-corrected electronics ensure flat acoustical amplitude and phase response, resulting in exceptional impulse response and precise imaging.
The amplifier/processing package incorporates Meyer Sound’s Intelligent AC™, which auto-selects the correct operating voltage, suppresses high voltage transients, filters EMI and provides soft-start power-up. The ULTRA-X20 cabinet provides audio XLR and PowerCON 20 input and looping output connectors. The ULTRA-X20XP version with IntelligentDC technology suits applications where AC power distribution is a limiting factor. It receives DC power and balanced audio from a Meyer Sound power supply.
The optional RMS™ remote monitoring system module with XLR 5-pin connectors provides comprehensive, real-time information about loudspeaker Compass® control software via the RMServer interface. The XLR 5-pin connectors allow composite cables to carry both balanced audio and RMS signals.
Meyer Sound builds the elegant, slightly curved enclosure out of aluminum with a slightly textured black finish. A powder-coated, round-perforated steel grille provides protection to the front of the loudspeaker.
The ULTRA-X20 includes two integral M8 rigging points on each end to enable a variety of configurations including those requiring pole mounting, hanging individually from a single point, wall mounting or ceiling mounting.
Optional rigging accessories include a 35 mm to M8 pole adapter, U-bracket, yoke, and a pinnable link on a channel that allows the hanging of a single or multiple units from a single pick-up point. Other options include weather protection and custom color finishes.
