Meyer Sound has added the Lina very compact linear line array loudspeaker and companion 750-LFC very compact low frequency control element to its Leo Family of linear sound reinforcement systems.

Meyer Sound Lina and 750-LFC The smallest and lightest loudspeaker elements in the series, Lina and 750-LFC aim to bring the performance and power-to-size ratio of Leo Family technology to a wider range of applications and venues.

The self-powered Lina loudspeaker measures 20.27in (515mm) wide and weighs in at 43lbs. (19.5kg) for discreet, portable deployment where hanging weight restrictions are critical considerations. As Lina shares the same structural footprint as Meyer Sound’s Mina line array loudspeakers, it can be added to existing inventories using the same rigging and mounting hardware. Mixed systems of Mina and Lina are compatible using the delay integration in Compass control software.

Lina is loaded with new drivers and an updated amplifier and signal processing package to conform with the Leo Family design philosophy. Compared to Mina, the newly designed class-D amplifier affords greater efficiency, and an upgraded power supply enables higher peak output. The 3-inch HF compression driver incorporates a new magnet structure first used in the Leopard line array loudspeaker (Lina’s next-larger sibling) for reduced distortion. Low-frequency distortion from the dual 6.5-inch woofers is further reduced compared to Mina, aided by new internal venting and baffling to optimise performance. Onboard signal processing has been upgraded for more power, and it now includes optimised Native Mode – as introduced in Leopard.

‘Following the industry-wide acceptance of Leopard, we were asked if we could deliver the same sonic transparency and headroom in a smaller system,’ says Meyer Sound VP of R&D and chief loudspeaker designer, Pablo Espinosa. ‘Although Lina takes advantage of the existing Mina footprint, the improvements in high-frequency headroom and lower distortion are clearly audible. Lina definitely shows its Leo Family lineage.’

In most applications, Lina compact line array loudspeakers will be integrated with the companion 750-LFC low-frequency control element for extending deep bass performance across its operating frequency range of 36Hz-125Hz. The 750-LFC houses a 15-inch, dual voice coil long excursion driver along with a two channel, open loop class-D amplifier and signal processing to provide separate, precisely synchronized power to each voice coil. Like its larger siblings, the 900-LFC and 1100-LFC, the 750-LFC reproduces low frequencies at high continuous levels. An integral pole mount receptacle pairs with Lina or UltraSeries loudspeakers, while an optional rigging frame allows flying in Lina arrays without a transition grid.

The high power-to-size ratio and sleek profile of the Lina compact linear line array systems suit them to small theatres, theme parks, houses of worship and portable A/V systems. Configured as single cabinets or short stacks, Lina loudspeakers are also suited to use as front fills and under-balcony fills.

The Lina compact linear line array loudspeaker and 750-LFC is expected to ship Q2, 2017.
