The UP-4slim ultracompact installation loudspeaker is ideally suited for applications requiring a small, slim, and aesthetically pleasing cabinet that also delivers high sound pressure levels, low distortion, and uniform directional control. The self-powered UP-4slim offers exceptional audio performance in a compact package with the advantages of a remote power supply. As a standalone loudspeaker, the UP-4slim can be used for vocal reinforcement, front fill and under balcony fill applications. The UP-4slim can also be paired with an optional subwoofer to create a full-range system.
The UP-4slim is engineered to the same award-winning standards as all Meyer Sound Intelligent DC loudspeakers. With on-board amplification with sophisticated signal processing, the UP-4slim exhibits the flat frequency and phase response for which Meyer Sound loudspeakers are known. The UP-4slim boasts a wide operating frequency range of 85Hz to 18kHz and a conservatively rated linear peak SPL of 112dB (measured with M-Noise2), with very low distortion.
Its drivers are designed and manufactured at the Meyer Sound factory in Berkeley, California. The UP-4slim's high-frequency section includes a 1-inch metal dome tweeter on a constant-directivity, high-frequency horn. The low/mid-frequency section includes two 4-inch cone transducers that work in parallel at low frequencies - delivering a combined acoustic output - with one of the drivers rolling off at higher frequencies to maintain constant directivity in the crossover region.
With a very smooth, consistent 100° coverage, fewer loudspeakers can cover a larger area, reducing system cost while maintaining the highest sound quality. The UP-4slim is powered by an external MPS-488HP Intelligent DC power supply. The 19-in (1RU) unit distributes DC power and balanced audio to 8 UP-4slim loudspeakers or other Meyer Sound Intelligent DC loudspeakers and can also connect to Meyer Sound’s RMS remote monitoring system. Composite multi-conductor cables (e.g., Belden® 1502) can deliver both DC power and balanced audio from a single Phoenix™ 5-pin male connector.
