Meyer Sound Wins Fourth TEC Award
Meyer Sound's UPM-1P was announced the winner of the 2000 TEC Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in Sound Reinforcement Loudspeaker Technology. The prestigious award was presented during ceremonies held on Saturday, September 23, at the Regal Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. Lloyd Kinkade, Western Regional Sales Manager, Meyer Sound, accepted the award on behalf of the company.
This year marks the fourth time that a Meyer Sound product has been singled out for this industry-wide recognition. Previous Meyer Sound TEC Award winners were SIM in 1986, the HD-1 Studio Monitor in 1990, and the PSW-6 Cardioid Subwoofer in 1999.
"We are all pleased by this latest vote of confidence in our technology," commented John Meyer, President and CEO of Meyer Sound. "It goes to show that a loudspeaker doesn't have to be big and glamorous to make a significant contribution to the industry. The UPM-1P is a breakthrough product because it solves problems by outperforming boxes two or three times its size and its sophisticated phase-correction circuitry assures true point-source performance without the off-axis cancellation effects that plague customary dual-woofer designs. Two MS-5 low/mid-frequency transducers are driven in parallel to take advantage of their combined acoustic output. And to prevent destructive interference due to comb filtering effects in the critical mid-band frequencies one of the drivers is passively rolled off above 500Hz."
The UPM-1P is a compact, self-powered professional sound reinforcement loudspeaker. Designed as a bi-amplified, three-way system, it incorporates dual 5-inch low/mid transducers, a 1-inch titanium dome HF driver on a symmetrical 100° horn, and Meyer Sound's proprietary phase-corrected active processing circuits. Applications for the UPM-1P include vocal range sound reinforcement as a stand-alone system; as an under-balcony, front- or side-fill speaker; or as a delay speaker in outdoor systems. A full-range system can be created with the addition of a separate optional subwoofer.
TEC (Technical Excellence and Creativity) Awards are presented annually by the Mix Foundation for Excellence in Audio. A broad-based panel of pro audio professionals selects nominees, with winners determined by readers of Mix Magazine using ballots accompanying all subscription copies of the August issue.
