Part of Meyer Sound’s EXP cinema series,
the X‑400C compact subwoofer boosts lowfrequency headroom in cinema applications
and other fixed installations. The linear,
self-powered X‑400C offers similar sonic
characteristics as the X‑800C subwoofer —
low-frequencies down to 20 Hz, clean, punchy
transients, and excellent phase coherence —
though in a more compact cabinet that can be
installed singly or as multiple units.
The X‑400C is comprised of a single 18-inch
low-frequency, long-excursion cone driver
housed in an optimally tuned, vented cabinet
and powered by a single-channel amplifier.
Onboard processing includes driver protection
circuitry, low-pass filtering, and correction
filters for flat phase and frequency responses.
The IntelligentAC™ power supply affords
automatic voltage selection, EMI filtering, soft
current turn-on, and surge suppression.
The X‑400C integrates seamlessly with other
EXP cinema loudspeakers, including the
Acheron screen channel loudspeakers and HMS

The Meyer Sound X-800 high-power
subwoofer is designed to provide very
low-frequencies with ample headroom in
critical applications. The X-800 Studio and
X-800C Cinema versions from the EXP line
of products excel in environments requiring
very low distortion, extended bandwidth
and extreme low frequency transients.
The X-800C is a linear, powerful selfpowered subwoofer offering excellent
phase coherence for smooth transitioning
from screen channels to low-frequency
effects (LFE), The X-800C delivers extended
low frequency output down to 20 Hz with
clear, punchy transients even at very high
levels.
The X-800C houses two Meyer Sound long
excursion, high efficiency 18-inch drivers
in an optimally tuned, vented cabinet. The
X-800C output rolls off well below 250 Hz,
avoiding any adverse comb filtering effects
that could be generated by the proximity
of other X-800C subwoofers when used in
arrays.
An integral two-channel class AB/H
amplifier with complementary MOSFET
output stages supplies a total output of
1240 Watts (2480 Watts peak), providing
the system with sufficient headroom to
accommodate lowest frequencies of the
most extreme digital soundtrack’s.
Each amplifier channel features TruPower®
limiting technology to maximize loudspeaker
reliability, minimize power compression and
extend component life. An Intelligent AC™
power supply affords automatic voltage
selection, EMI filtering, soft current turn-on
and surge suppression.
A laser-trimmed differential input with
high common-mode rejection enables long
line-level signal runs using shielded, twistedpair cable. As with all Meyer Sound selfpowered products, sophisticated onboard
features & benefits
processing includes phase and frequency
response correction filters. This selfpowered design not only assures consistent
results but also simplifies installation in
both new and existing rooms.
The X-800C subwoofer's premium birch

900-LFC Compact Low-Frequency Control Element
Meyer Sound’s 900-LFC compact low-frequency
control element reproduces low frequencies at
high, continuous output levels with extremely
low distortion. The 900‑LFC offers the same
sonic linearity as Meyer Sound’s 1100-LFC
low-frequency control element in a smaller,
lighter cabinet, making it ideal for building
scalable systems to suit touring applications or
fixed installations of any size.
A newly-designed class D amplifier affords
unprecedented efficiency to the 900-LFC,
significantly lowering distortion while reducing
power consumption and operating temperature.
The onboard amplifier and control circuitry are
contained in a single, field-replaceable module.
In addition to pairing with LEOPARD™ systems,
the 900-LFC integrates easily with other Meyer
Sound loudspeaker systems, including LEO-M™,
LYON™, and ULTRA Series loudspeakers.
LEOPARD and 900-LFC can be driven by Meyer
Sound’s Galileo Callisto™ 616 array processor,
which
provides
matrix
routing,
alignment, and processing for array
components. To guarantee optimum
performance, systems with the 900‑LFC
should be designed with Meyer Sound’s
MAPP™ software. LEOPARD and 900‑LFC
loudspeakers work with Meyer Sound’s
RMS™ remote monitoring system, which
provides comprehensive monitoring
of system parameters from a Mac® or
Windows®-based computer.
The 900-LFC is available with or without
Meyer Sound’s QuickFly® rigging. When
equipped with the optional MRK‑900
rigging kit, the 900-LFC’s captive
GuideALinks™ allow it to be flown from
the MG‑LEOPARD/900 multipurpose
grid in LEOPARD arrays without a
transition frame. 900-LFCs can also be
flown separately as a subwoofer array with
variable splay angles from 0 to 5 degrees. The
MG‑LEOPARD/900 grid can also be used for
groundstacks with uptilt or downtilt.
Both versions of the 900-LFC can be
transported in stacks with the optional
MCF‑900 caster frame.

MM-10™ Miniature Subwoofer
The MM‑10 miniature subwoofer delivers
expanded low frequency for applications
that require excellent audio quality from
a compact system. Designed primarily as
a companion to Meyer Sound's MM‑4XP
miniature loudspeaker, as well as the
UP‑4XP ultracompact loudspeaker, both with
IntelligentDC technology, the MM‑10 allows
system designers to create full-range systems
where space limitations are a concern.
The MM‑10 features an operating frequency
range of 33 Hz to 228 Hz with a conservatively
rated maximum peak SPL of 123 dB. The
MM‑10 bass reflex cabinet houses a single
10-inch driver and a single-channel power
amplifier complete with onboard processing,
including a crossover, driver protection, and
frequency and phase correction. The builtin crossover accepts full-range signals,
facilitating basic daisy-chaining for signal
distribution, eliminating the need for external
crossovers in small setups.
The MM‑10 subwoofer is available from the
factory in three models — the MM‑10XP,
with IntelligentDC technology, MM‑10AC,
and MM‑10ACX — each offering different
internal configurations and audio and power
connectors (which cannot be upgraded).
The MM‑10XP model is powered by an
external power supply, eliminating the need
for wiring conduits while still preserving the
advantages of self-powered loudspeaker
systems. The unit's onboard amplifier and
signal-processing circuits were designed to
store DC power and tolerate voltage drops,
thereby accommodating light-gauge cables
and lengthy cable runs. The MM‑10XP is
available with either a Phoenix™ 5-pin male
or sealed SwitchCraft® EN3™ male connector
for receiving balanced audio and DC power.
The EN3 connector is ideal for outdoor, allweather use.
MM‑10XPs require an external MPS‑488HP
IntelligentDC power supply. The single-space
19-inch rack unit receives balanced audio
from its XLR female inputs and routes the
audio, along with DC power, to its channel
outputs. The channel outputs — equipped
with either Phoenix 5-pin male connectors or
EN3 5-pin female connectors — can deliver
DC power to up to eight MM‑10XP subwoofers
at cable lengths of up to 150 feet with just
1 dB of loss in peak SPL using 18 AWG wire.
The use of composite multiconductor cables
(such as Belden® 1502) allows a single cable
to carry both DC power and balanced audio
to the MM‑10XPs. Longer cable runs are
possible for moderate applications that don't
drive the subwoofers to maximum output, or
for installations with heavier wire gauges.
The MM‑10AC model is ideal for fixed
installations and portable applications where
The MM‑10ACX model includes onboard DC
power and audio routing for driving a pair
of MM‑4XP miniature loudspeakers, or a
single UP‑4XP ultracompact loudspeaker,
effectively placing the MM‑10ACX at the heart
of an extremely capable compact, full-range
loudspeaker system. Three XLR female inputs
are included for receiving audio independitely
for the subwoofer and satellite loudspeakers.
The two output connectors for the satellite
loudspeakers are available with Phoenix
5-Pin male or EN3 5-pin female connectors. In
addition, a two-channel signal can be patched
to the satellite inputs and summed and routed
to the subwoofer with the input select switch.
Other options for all MM‑10 models include
the MUB‑MM10 U-bracket for mounting the
subwoofer on ceilings and walls; weather
protection, complete with rain hoods, for
outdoor, all-weather use; and custom color
finishes for installations and applications with
specific cosmetic requirements.
