Meyer Sound UPQ-D3-3, 15" 2-Way Active Speaker, 3-Pin Input

The Meyer Sound UPQ-D3-3 is a tour tested and built to last, Meyer Sound UPQ series enclosures have delivered powerful, accurate, and detailed audio for over a decade. With a recent redesign and an added coverage option, they do that more efficiently than ever before. Benefitting from a redesign with efficiency in mind, the newest member, the UPQ-D3-3 has an onboard 2250W 2-channel Class D power amp. With reduced current draw and new generation signal processing, you'll notice a flat frequency and phase response resulting in superior transients and precise stereo imaging. Amazingly, the upgrade didn't increase the footprint, these cabinets actually weigh 13 lbs. less than the previous models, making them easier to fly and move. Meyer Sound's legendary power-to-size ratio and smooth, uniform coverage are on full display with the UPQ-D3-3. The D3 is the ultra-wide (80° x 80°) coverage model of the UPQ family. It has inherited the natural, consistent, high-frequency dispersion and gentle side roll-off that characterizes the series. This results in a gradual but expected change in what the listener hears as they move about the room, which in turn makes for more predictable system design. Designers will also appreciate being able to derive 2250W of high and mid-range coverage from a 2-way vented cabinet measuring roughly 19" x 28" x 18".

For over a decade, UPQ loudspeakers have been trusted by technicians and enjoyed by concertgoers night after night. That kind of dependability is reassuring when your job is to make sure it sounds good and everything goes as planned. The integrated 1800watt 2-channel Class D amplifier has dedicated processing that provides control over crossover, driver protection, and frequency and phase response giving you a window into system performance. The UPQ series takes the guessing out of installation and set up so you can worry about sound. Built within the same cabinet dimensions and rigging points as previous UPQ cabinets, the new models can seamlessly upgrade any current Quickfly rigged system. Equipped with an adapting AC supply that's compatible with any voltage worldwide, the UPQ-D3-3 can go where ever the road takes it. Dependability, efficiency, and proper use of power are admirable traits, the Meyer Sound UPQ-D3-3 can add them to your system today.
