Mid-High to Very-High Frequencies: Greater Output, Lower Distortion

In their designs for line arrays, most manufacturers recognize that the vertical high-frequency pattern of each loudspeaker must be tightly controlled to minimize interference between units in the array. But some common solutions, such as using long waveguides to control compression driver dispersion, gain the necessary control only at the cost of increased distortion.

By contrast, the mid-high and very-high frequency sections in MILO each employ a patented REM ribbon emulation manifold coupled to a constant-directivity horn. Meyer Sound's REM is a proprietary coupling device that produces a wave front exhibiting low distortion and radiation behavior similar to that of a high-frequency line source, but with the high output generated by compression drivers. The horn's smooth, controlled vertical dispersion minimizes destructive high-frequency interactions between cabinets, an essential quality for line array applications.

MILO's mid-high section (560 Hz - 4.2 kHz) employs a single 1.5-inch exit, 4-inch diaphragm compression driver powered by a dedicated 560-watt amplifier channel. The very-high frequency section utilizes three 0.75-inch exit, 2-inch diaphragm compression drivers to produce extraordinary power and clarity, and extend MILO's operating frequency range to 18 kHz. A dedicated 1125-watt amplifier channel for the very-high frequency section ensures maximum system headroom.

Because high frequency drivers are critical to overall system performance, all compression drivers in MILO are designed and manufactured in house by Meyer Sound. Rigid manufacturing tolerances and stringent quality control ensure stable, consistent response characteristics.


Two patented REM manifolds couple the four Meyer Sound compression drivers to the constant directivity horns. REM controls driver output and introduces it to the horn throats within the shortest possible path length, consequently producing far less distortion than devices in other line arrays that employ longer paths.
