Meyer Sounds UPJunior ultracompact VariO loudspeaker brings the sonic signature, versatile rigging, and extraordinary power-to-size ratio of the UPJ-1P to a smaller package. The UPJunior combines the advantages of a self-powered system with the placement and arraying flexibility afforded by a VariO rotatable horn.

The UPJunior was developed based on the success and popularity of UPJ-1P.
By putting the same powerful technology into a smaller package, we’re giving our customers another tool that can be used in many different applications where its smaller profile will keep it from obstructing sightlines and allow it to fit into very tight spaces.”

– John Meyer

Though remarkably compact and lightweight, the UPJunior delivers a robust peak power output of 126 dB SPL at 1 meter, making it suitable for use as either a single, primary loudspeaker or within multicabinet horizontal and vertical arrays. Applications include AV presentations; small- to medium-sized main sound reinforcement systems; fill, delay, and effects systems; under-balcony coverage; and distributed systems.

The UPJunior was bred for flexibility, whether oriented vertically or horizontally. The VariO horn allows quick rotation to provide an 80-degree by 50-degree coverage pattern in either the horizontal or vertical plane. In size, weight, and output, the UPJunior integrates seamlessly with the UltraSeries UPM and UPJ loudspeakers.

The UPJuniors low-mid frequency section employs an 8-inch neodymium magnet cone driver, while the high-frequency section utilizes an efficient 0.75-inch exit, 2-inch diaphragm compression driver. Both drivers are designed and manufactured by Meyer Sound in Berkeley, Calif. The cabinet incorporates aluminum end plates that provide unprecedented mounting, flying, and arraying flexibility. Strategically placed metric M8 threaded points allow simple mounting using either eyebolts or third-party pole assemblies.

The optional RMS module allows comprehensive monitoring of all key system parameters from a Windows-based computer. Other options include weather protection and custom color finishes for applications requiring specific cosmetics.
