SB-3FSound Field Synthesis Loudspeaker


SB-3F

Ensuring Intelligible Sound Over Long Distances

Coherent Sound Field

The Meyer Sound SB-3F sound field synthesis loudspeaker is a high-powered, long-throw device capable of projecting mid-high frequency energy over distances of up to 1 km. The SB-3F achieves a narrow coverage angle by employing sound field synthesis technology with multiple small point sources to achieve a coherent sound field.

Complements Large-Scale Systems

The SB-3F complements large-scale Meyer Sound systems requiring high intelligibility at long distances. Reliable, purpose-built Meyer Sound drivers ensure minimal frequency loss over long distances, while the wide dynamic range and high output accommodate signals with high peak-to-average ratios.

Intelligibility in Large Spaces

Applications include high-frequency fill coverage for far-field stadium, large outdoor venues, and large-scale event speech, and music reinforcement and speech reinforcement for long-range alerts or announcements.


Exemplary Linearity in a Small Footprint

Wide Dynamic Range

The SB-3F loudspeaker is comprised of 448 one-inch neodymium transducers - each a powerful point source with a wide dynamic range that can accommodate signals with high peak-to-average ratios - that combine to produce a highly directional wavefront that propagates smoothly over long distances with minimal side and rear lobing.

Self-Powered and RMS Compatible

The SB-3F is a self-powered loudspeaker incorporating a multi-channel, high-power, class AB/H power amplifier and sophisticated control circuitry - all housed within the loudspeaker's cabinet, which dramatically simplifies setup and installation. The SB-3F's on-board amplifier delivers 9000 W of total burst power. This modular, field-replaceable amplifier/processing package requires 220 V AC and provides both soft turn-on and transient protection. It comes standard with Meyer Sound's RMS remote monitoring system.

Cabinet and Weather Protection

The SB-3F enclosure is constructed of premium birch plywood and textured with a hard-shell, black finish; custom color finishes are also available. The loudspeaker's grille frame, a powder-coated, hex-stamped steel mesh, protects the front of the unit and contributes to its audio performance as well, helping to reduce side lobes. A weather-protected version of the SB-3F is available with a wood-treated enclosure and rain hoods that safeguard the rear of the loudspeaker and its connectors from the elements.

Mounting Options

The SB-3F includes a side-mounted pivot block that is compatible with the optional MYA-SB2 Mounting Yoke assembly, which allows the loudspeaker to be easily tilted for aiming, and provides side attachment points that permit multiple SB-3Fs to be arrayed horizontally or vertically with optional arraying adapter kits. For touring applications, the yoke-mounted SB-3F can be easily transported using the MCF-SB3F caster frame.
