M3D™ Line Array
INTRODUCTION
The M3D Line Array is a part of the Meyer Sound M Series,
which is a fully integrated line of loudspeakers that brings
singular advantages to real-world applications.
The M3D Line Array, shown in Figure 1, draws upon
classic linear array principles and is a hybrid system
using advanced engineering to optimize line array
performance for consistent, reliable coverage. As are all
M Series products, the M3D is self-powered, features
Meyer Sound’s QuickFly® rigging, and is configurable
with most other Meyer Sound loudspeakers. RMS™
(Remote Monitoring System) is standard. The M3D is
weather-protected for outdoor applications.
Figure 1. M3D Line Array with BroadBandQ™
The companion M3D-Sub Directional Subwoofer, shown
in Figure 2, extends system frequency response to 30 Hz
while maintaining low-frequency directional control and
horizontal arrayability. Use of the M3D-Sub adds low
frequency headroom to an M3D Line Array.
Figure 2. M3D-Sub Directional Subwoofer
NOTE: Please read this entire manual
carefully before configuring and deploying
systems. In particular, please pay careful
attention to the sections about safety issues.
The Meyer Sound M3D is the first and only line array
system to feature state-of-the-art BroadBandQ
technology. BroadBandQ marries a remarkable new
Meyer Sound Laboratories Inc
high-frequency manifold system with Meyer’s
proprietary, award-winning, directional low-frequency
technology to precisely control vertical and horizontal
coverage between 35 Hz and 16 kHz. The result is truly
optimized line array behavior, affording performance
that is markedly superior to conventional systems.
To reproduce high frequencies, the M3D employs an REM
(Ribbon Emulation Manifold) to feed a constantdirectivity horn from two Meyer-manufactured
compression drivers, each having a 1.5-inch exit (4-inch
diaphragm). REM controls the output of the drivers and
introduces it to the horn throat within a three-inch path
length, dramatically minimizing distortion. The unique
M3D horn design produces a coherent wave front that is
characteristic of, but much more powerful than, a large
ribbon driver. Vertical coverage is restricted to 10˚ (±5˚)
and interaction is minimized, yet distortion remains
extremely low.
To ensure the smoothest response in the critical
midrange, the M3D incorporates a complex active
crossover design. At the lowest frequencies, two frontfacing ferrofluid cooled, back-vented 15-inch drivers
combine to reproduce powerful, coherent bass. These
newly developed drivers feature lightweight neodymium
magnet structures and are rated to handle 1200 AES
watts. (Loudspeaker driven with a band-limited noise
signal [125 Hz to 8 kHz] with 6-dB peak-to-average ratio
for a period of 2 hours.) In the mid frequencies, the
crossover feeds only one of the two drivers. This
technique eliminates interference between the drivers
that would otherwise occur at shorter wavelengths, and
maintains optimal polar and frequency response
characteristics.
At mid and low frequencies, the M3D employs a
proprietary system of rear-facing 15-inch cone drivers,
separately driven by a complex phase manipulation
circuit, to generate a wave front that interacts with that
produced by the front-facing. high-power 15-inch
drivers. The result is directional low-frequency output to
35 Hz and a 25-dB reduction in sound level behind the
cabinet.
Arrays of up to 16 cabinets (M3D, M3D-Sub, or a mixture
of both), having 0˚ to 5˚ of splay between adjacent units,
provide flexibility to tailor vertical coverage by varying
the number and splay of cabinets in the array while
maintaining 90˚ of usable horizontal coverage measured
at the -6 db points.
To predict the coverage, frequency response, impluse
response and maximum SPL output of arrayed M3Ds, use
MAPP (Multipurpose Acoustical Prediction Program)
Online (see “Meyer Sound MAPP Online™” on page 18).

AC POWER
When AC power is applied to the M3D or M3D-Sub, the
Intelligent AC™ supply automatically selects the correct
operating voltage, allowing the loudspeakers to be used
internationally without manually setting voltage
switches. The Intelligent AC supply performs the
following protective functions to compensate for hostile
conditions on the AC mains:
■
suppresses high-voltage transients up to several
kilovolts
■
filters common mode and difference mode radio
frequencies (EMI)
■
sustains operation temporarily during low-voltage
periods
■
provides soft-start power-up, which eliminates high
inrush current
Refer to Table 2 on page 20 of Appendix A for a
complete listing of power requirements and
specifications for the M3D Line Array, or Table 3 on
page 23 for the power requirements and specifications
for the M3D-Sub Directional Subwoofer.
The M3D or M3D-Sub can withstand continuous voltages
up to 275 V and allows any combination of voltage to
GND (that is neutral-line-ground or line-line-ground).
!
CAUTION: Continuous voltages higher than
275 V can damage the unit.
The M3D or M3D-Sub uses a NEMA L6-20P, an IEC 309 or
a multipin VEAM male power connector and satisfies
worldwide product safety standards.
way, preserving AC line polarity and connecting earth
ground such that all grounding points are connected to a
single node or common point using the same cable gauge
as the neutral and line(s) cables.
Bad grounding connections between speakers and the
rest of the audio system may produce noise, hum and/or
serious damage to the input/output stages in the
system’s electronic equipment.
CAUTION: Before applying AC to any Meyer
!
Sound self-powered speaker, be sure that the
voltage potential difference between neutral
and earth ground is less than 5 VAC.
Figure 3 shows a sample three-phase AC distribution
system, with the load between speakers distributed
among the three phases and all of the loudspeakers
connected to common neutral and earth ground points.

Voltage Requirements
The M3D or M3D-Sub operates safely and without audio
discontinuity if the AC voltage stays within either of two
operating windows: 85-134 V or 165-264 V, at 50 or
60 Hz. Refer to Table 2 on page 20 for the M3D or Table 3
on page 23 for the M3D-Sub for detailed AC voltage
requirements.
After applying AC power, the proper operating voltage is
automatically selected, but the system is muted. During
the next three seconds the following events occur:
1. The primary fans turn on.
2. The main power supply slowly ramps on.
AC Power Distribution
All amplifier modules and the rest of the audio equipment
connected to it (mixing consoles, processors, etc.) must
be connected to the AC power distribution in a proper
2 • M3D™ Line Array
3. The green Active LED on the user panel lights up,
indicating that the system is enabled and ready to
pass audio signals.
Meyer Sound Laboratories Inc
CAUTION: If the Active LED does not
!
illuminate or the system does not respond to
audio input after ten seconds, remove AC
power immediately.
Verify that the voltage is within the proper
range. If the problem persists please contact
Meyer Sound or an authorized service center.
If the voltage decreases below the lower boundary of
either operating range (brownout), the supply uses
stored energy to continue functioning briefly.
The unit turns off only if the voltage does not increase
above the threshold before the storage circuits are
depleted. The time that the M3D or M3D-Sub continues to
operate during brownout depends on how low the
voltage drops and on the audio source level during this
period.
If the voltage fluctuates within either operating range,
automatic tap selection stabilizes the internal operating
voltage. This tap selection is instantaneous, and there
are no audible artifacts.
If the voltage increases above the upper boundary of
either range, the power supply rapidly turns off,
preventing damage to the unit.
If the M3D or M3D-Sub shuts down due to either low or
high voltage, the power supply automatically turns on
after three seconds if the voltage has returned to either
normal operating range. If the M3D or M3D-Sub does not
turn back on after ten seconds, remove AC power and
refer to the previous Caution note.
The maximum continuous RMS current is the maximum
RMS current in a period of at least ten seconds. It is used
to calculate the temperature increase in cables, which is
used to select cables that conform to electrical code
standards. It is also used to select the cable size and
gauge and the rating for slow-reacting thermal breakers.
The maximum burst RMS current is the maximum RMS
current in a period of approximately one second. It is
used to select the rating for most magnetic breakers. The
maximum instantaneous peak current during burst is
used to select the rating for fast-reacting magnetic
breakers and to calculate the peak voltage drop in long
AC cables according to the formula
V pk (drop)= I pk x R (cable total)
For best performance, the AC Cable voltage drop should
not exceed 10 Volts, or 10% at 115V and 5% at 230V. Use
Table 1 below as a guide when selecting cable gauge size
and circuit breaker ratings for your operating voltage.

The minimum electrical service amperage required by a
system of M3D or M3D-Subs is the sum of their maximum
continuous RMS current. We recommend allowing an
additional 30% above the minimum amperage to prevent
peak voltage drops at the service entry.
NOTE: It is recommend that the supply be
operated in the rated voltage windows, at least
a few volts away from the turn on/off points so
that small AC voltage variations do not cause
the amplifier to cycle on and off.
CURRENT REQUIREMENTS
The M3D or M3D-Sub presents a dynamic load to the AC
mains, which causes the amount of current to fluctuate
between quiet and loud operating levels. Since different
cables and circuit breakers heat up at varying rates, it is
essential to understand the types of current ratings and
how they correspond to circuit breaker and cable
specifications.
Meyer Sound Laboratories Inc
!
CAUTION: In the unlikely event that the
circuit breakers trip (the white center buttons
pop out), disconnect the AC power cable. Do
not reset the breakers with the AC
connected. Contact Meyer Sound for repair
information.
Power Connector Wiring Conventions
The M3D or M3D-Sub requires a grounded outlet. It is
very important that the system be properly grounded for
both safety and proper operation. Use the following

SAFETY ISSUES
TIP: Use the rings located in the rear above
the amplifier on the M3D or M3D-Sub to
provide strain relief for the power and signal
cables.
Pay close attention to these important electrical and
safety issues.
!
CAUTION: Do not use a power cord adapter
to drive the M3D or M3D-Sub from a standard
three-prong Edison outlet since that connector
is rated for only 15 amps (NEMA 5-15R; 125 VAC
max.)
AUDIO INPUT
The M3D or M3D-Sub presents a 10k ohm balanced input
impedance to a three-pin XLR connector with the
following connectors:

popping are produced by the loudspeaker,
disconnect the audio cable from the speaker. If
the noise stops, then most likely the problem is
not with the loudspeaker. Check the audio
cable, source, and AC power for the source of
the problem.
Audio signals can be daisy-chained using the loop output
connector on the user panel of the M3D or M3D-Sub.
A single source can drive multiple M3Ds or M3D-Subs
with a paralleled input loop, creating an unbuffered
hard-wired loop connection.
When driving multiple M3Ds or M3D-Subs in an array,
make certain that the source device can drive the total
load impedance presented by the paralleled input circuit
of the array. The audio source must be capable of
producing a minimum of 20 dBV (10-Vrms into 600
ohms) in order to produce the maximum peak SPL over
the operating bandwidth of the loudspeaker.

functions for the M3D and M3D-Sub such as crossovers,
frequency, phase response, and driver protection are
determined by the control card installed inside the HP-4
amplifier.

All Meyer Sound loudspeakers are shipped with the
drivers in correct alignment. However, if a driver needs
to be replaced, make sure the replacement is reinstalled
with the correct polarity. Incorrect driver polarity impairs
the system performance and may damage the drivers.
M3D Interconnections
Figure 11. M3D rear panel audio input connectors
The input impedance for a single M3D or M3D-Sub is
10k ohms; if n represents the number of M3D or M3D-Sub
loudspeakers in an array, paralleling the inputs of n M3Ds
or M3D-Subs will produce a balanced input load of
10k ohms divided by n.
To avoid distortion from the source, make sure the
source equipment provides an adequate drive circuit
design for the total paralleled load impedance presented
by the array. Most source equipment is safe for driving
loads no smaller than ten times the source’s output
impedance.
For example, cascading an array of ten units consisting
of M3Ds and M3D-Subs produces an input impedance of
1000 ohms (10k ohms divided by 10). The source
equipment should have an output impedance of 100
ohms or less.
This is also true when connecting in parallel (loop out)
M3Ds or M3D-Subs with other self-powered Meyer
Sound loudspeakers (M3D-Subs, 650-Ps, MSL-4s, and so
on.)
Each front 4 ohm, 15-inch, low-frequency driver is
powered by one channel of the HP-4/M3D amplifier.
While both rear 8 ohm, 15 inch low-frequency drivers are
connected in parallel and driven by a single amplifier
channel. The two 4-inch diaphragm high-frequency
drivers share the fourth channel of the HP-4 amplifier.

THE TRUPOWER™ LIMITING SYSTEM
The left-and-right front low-frequency drivers are
driven by separate amplifier channels but are routed to
one limiter; the LO TPL F LED on the user panel indicates
TPL activity for the front drivers. The two rear lowfrequency drivers are driven by one amplifier channel;
the LO TPL R LED indicates TPL activity for the rear lowfrequency drivers. The two high-frequency drivers are
driven by one amplifier channel; the HI Limit LED, shown
in Figure 14 on page 7, indicates TPL activity for the
high-frequency drivers.
The limiters cease operation when the power level in the
channel returns to normal and do not affect the signal
when the LED is inactive.
Conventional limiters assume that the impedance of a
speaker remains constant and set the limiting threshold
by measuring voltage only. This method is inaccurate,
because the speaker’s impedance changes in response to
the frequency content of the source material and thermal
variations in the speaker’s voice coil and magnet.
Conventional limiters begin limiting prematurely, which
under utilizes system headroom and deprives the
speaker of its full dynamic range.
The TruPower Limiting (TPL) system accounts for varying
speaker impedance by measuring current, in addition to
voltage, to compute the actual power dissipation in the
voice coil. TPL improves performance before and during
limiting by allowing each driver to produce its maximum

minimizing negative sonic effects. The LED, shown in
Figure 15, illuminates when the maximum allowed peak
voltage at each frequency is reached. This circuit works
for all frequencies, not just very low frequencies where
the drivers are more vulnerable overexcursion.
The M3D-Sub operates safely if the Exc. Clamp LED is on
for no longer than two seconds, and off for one second.
M3D Peak Limiter
When engaged, the Peak Limiter prevents signal peaks
from causing distortion in the high channel, preserving
headroom and maintaining smooth frequency response
at high levels. Peak limiting is indicated by the Hi Peak
LED on the user panel; the same on/off cycle discussed
for the TPL limiters applies to the Peak Limiter.
M3D-Sub TPL Limiters
The 18-inch front low-frequency drivers are driven by
separate amplifier channels but are fed by one limiter;
the LO TPL F LED on the user panel indicates TPL activity
for these drivers. The rear 15-inch drivers are connected
in parallel and driven by a single amplifier channel that is
fed by one limiter; the Rear TPL LED on the user panel
indicates TPL activity for the rear drivers. The limiters
cease operation when the power level returns to normal,
and do not affect the signal when the LED is inactive.
FANS AND COOLING SYSTEM
The M3D uses a forced-air cooling system with four fans
to prevent the amplifier modules from overheating. The
fans draw air in through ducts on the front of the cabinet,
over the heatsinks, and out the rear of the cabinet.
Because dust does not accumulate in the amplifier
circuitry, its lifespan is increased significantly. The front
grill surface acts as an air filter for the cooling system
and should always be in place during operation.
M3D-Sub Excursion Clamp
The drivers in the M3D-Sub are protected by an
excursion clamping circuit that provides instantaneous
braking for the drivers without the pumping effects
commonly produced by compressor/limiters.

10 • M3D™ Line Array
Though hybrid line array systems are relatively new to
the sound reinforcement industry, line arrays have been
used since the 1950s. They have been described as a
group of radiating elements arrayed in a straight line,
closely spaced and operating with equal amplitude and in
phase.
Line arrays achieve directivity through constructive and
destructive interference. A simple thought experiment
illustrates how this occurs.
Consider a speaker comprising a single 12-inch cone
radiator in an enclosure. We know from experience that
this speaker’s directivity varies with frequency: at low
frequencies, it is omnidirectional; as the sound
wavelength grows shorter, its directivity narrows; and
above about 2 kHz, it becomes too beamy for most
applications. (This is why practical system designs
employ crossovers and multiple elements to achieve
more or less consistent directivity across the audio
band.)
Stacking two of these speakers one atop the other and
driving both with the same signal results in a different
radiation pattern. At points on-axis of the two there is
constructive interference, and the sound pressure
increases by 6 dB relative to a single unit. At other points
off-axis, path length differences produce cancellation,
resulting in a lower sound pressure level. In fact, if you
drive both units with a sine wave, there will be points
where the cancellation is complete (this is best
demonstrated in an anechoic chamber). This is
destructive interference, sometimes referred to as
combing.
A line array is a line of woofers carefully spaced so that
constructive interference occurs on-axis of the array
and destructive interference (combing) is aimed to the
sides. While combing has traditionally been considered
undesirable, line arrays use combing to work; without
combing, there would be no directivity.
Meyer Sound Laboratories Inc
HYBRID LINE ARRAYS
The M3D is a high-powered BroadbandQ™ loudspeaker
system. In order to effectively array, drive, and optimize
a system to produce optimal results, it’s important to
understand how a hybrid line array loudspeaker works.
For high frequencies, the M3D takes advantage of the
control that wave guide horns provide. In the horizontal
pattern of the array, these horns work just as any wave
guide does to produce a consistent beamwidth of
coverage. In the vertical, however, the REM™ is designed
to produce very narrow coverage in order to minimize
destructive interference between adjacent elements and
maximize throw. As more elements are arrayed in a
vertical column, they throw high-frequency energy more
effectively through coupling. The amount of energy can
then be controlled using the relative splay between the
elements.
For the mid-to-low frequencies, it’s important to
understand that even though the M3D’s Broadband Q™
technology will maintain front-to-back attenuation from
580 Hz down to 35 Hz, line arrays must be coupled
together to narrow their vertical polar response and
throw mid and low energy to the far field. The more
elements used, the narrower the vertical beamwidth
becomes. (See Figure 20.)

Adjusting a Line Array’s Coverage
The most effective method for adjusting a hybrid line
array’s vertical coverage is to adjust the mechanical
splay between the elements. (Horizontal coverage for a
single array is constant.) Narrower vertical splay angles
Meyer Sound Laboratories Inc
produce a higher-Q vertical beamwidth, while wider
splay lowers the Q. The following is a case example
showing a design where this principle is applied to a
sloped outdoor venue.
M3D™ Line Array • 11
Figure 21. Using vertical splay to adjust a line array’s coverage
With these two technologies (low-frequency line array
and high-frequency wave guide) combined in a single
product, it's important to understand how to best
electronically drive a hybrid line array. The highfrequency section can, and usually should, be zoned for
implementing different equalization into zones. The first
step is to optimize the coverage using the relative
mechanical splay between the array's elements. MAPP
Online is an ideal tool for doing this and determining
what will work best for the application. MAPP can also
help to determine how to break up the electronic drive of
the system using its Virtual SIM feature. For the far field,
a smaller mechanical splay angle achieves superior
throw to compensate for energy lost over distance.
While wave guides provide isolated control over various
coverage areas, the low-frequency section of a line
array still requires mutual coupling—with equal
amplitude and phase—to achieve a narrow beamwidth.
This is important to remember when optimizing the array
12 • M3D™ Line Array
with multiple equalization channels. It is best to maintain
a similar or identical equalization in the low-frequency
filters, even though different equalization is being
applied to each zone in the high frequencies.
This is also why gain tapering is not recommended for
line arrays. Adjusting the various zones with an overall
amplitude control for each zone results in the following:
1. Directionality decreases.
2. Overall low-frequency headroom decreases.
3. The length of the line array column is effectively
shortened.
The following is a sample M3D system block diagram
showing one method of driving an array, along with
additional fill loudspeakers and subwoofers. Digital
delays are included to provide a time adjustment to
compensate for the various subsystems and subwoofers
being geometrically out of plane with one another.

CABLING
One method of cabling the system is using the Meyer
Sound/VEAM cable system. This system incorporates
power, signal, and RMS monitoring system all in one
heavy-duty cable and connector per M3D cabinet.
The electrical, signal, and RMS cables for each cabinet
can be consolidated to create a “three-pair” multiconductor cable. This can be accomplished by using
separate electrical and signal XLR cable. The electrical,
signal, and RMS cable for each box can be loomed
together per box to create a “three-pair” multiconductor cable for each cabinet. This ensures no
patching errors and a minimum of cables behind the
array.
Two ring/stud fittings are provided on the back panel of
each M3D and M3D-Sub for the purpose of strain
relieving all cabling. Insert the signal, data, and AC
connections into each loudspeaker as the array is being
rigged, swag all cables under the rain hood’s side flaps,
and tie them off onto either the left or right rings of the
ring/stud fitting as shown in Figure 23. Using the strain
reliefs will minimize the chance of cables being damaged
during installation of the sound system.
USING THE M3D-SUB WITH THE M3D
LINE ARRAY LOUDSPEAKER
The M3D system will provide full bandwidth frequency
response without M3D-Sub directional subwoofers. The
height of the array (number of cabinets) and the desired
SPL will determine how much sub-bass energy can be
provided, proportional to the upper-frequency spectrum.
If higher SPL is necessary or the program content
requires additional sub-bass energy, then M3D-Sub
direction subwoofers can be used to augment the M3D
line arrays.
There is no polarity switch on either the M3D Line Array
or the M3D-Sub directional subwoofer. Both are wired
pin 2 “hot” (positive acoustic pressure when a positive
pulse is applied to pin 2).
The M3D Line Array frequency response operates down
to 35 Hz, while the M3D-Sub operates in the range of
30 Hz to 80 Hz. The M3D-Sub therefore does not extend
the system response appreciably; rather, it increases the
acoustic power of the system in the lowest frequencies.
This can be very useful in applications that require large
amounts of low-frequency energy, such as the
reinforcement of popular music.
Both the M3D Line Array and the M3D-Sub have a
cardioid directional pattern and are designed to provide
maximum cancellation from six to twelve meters behind
the cabinet (-20 dB at 8 meters). When they are used
together, in addition to increased forward power, the
rear power cancellation also improves.
Driving the M3D-Sub

CAUTION: The rear ring/stud fittings shown
!
in Figure 23 must be used only to secure
system cabling. These fittings are not intended
to be used for system rigging or a pull-back
motor (pulling the bottom of the array
backward to increase downward tilt). The
points are mounted on each side of the
amplifier area, so as not to interfere with the
rain hood and the amplifier fan exhaust area.
14 • M3D™ Line Array
All Meyer Sound products have been optimized with
internal crossover networks. When most Meyer Sound
loudspeakers are used together, these networks provide
maximum power addition through their respective
overlapping frequency ranges when used in close
proximity and co-planar to one another.
You may loop connections between the M3D Line Array
and the M3D-Sub. This will result in 6 dB greater sound
pressure in the 40 Hz to 100 Hz range, as shown in
Figure 24, a ground-plane measurement taken at six
meters.
Meyer Sound Laboratories Inc
Figure 24. M3D Line Array and M3D-Sub with looped connections
When the two are driven with the same signal but the
M3D-Sub is attenuated by 6 dB, the response is identical
to the M3D Line Array alone but extends to 30 Hz, as
shown in Figure 25.
Figure 25. M3D Line Array and M3D-Sub with M3D-Sub attenuated by 6 dB
The third option provides optimal headroom to the M3Ds,
while adding an often preferred frequency response
bump centered around 65 Hz. This configuration, shown
in Figure 26 and Figure 27, high passes the M3D
loudspeakers in the array while letting the M3D Subs use
their normal internal crossover frequencies. If the 65 Hz
bump in the spectrum isn’t desired, an equalization filter
can be used to flatten the overall response, while still
optimizing system headroom.
To achieve this, drive the M3D loudspeakers using the
DS-2 (or mid bass) output of the LD-1A line driver, as
shown in Figure 26 or the LD-2 line driver as shown in
Figure 27, with the DS-2 crossover engaged and with no
polarity reversal. This provides a crossover function by
rolling off the M3D Loudspeakers below 80 Hz, as shown
in Figure 28. increasing its headroom at very low
frequencies.
Meyer Sound Laboratories Inc
The DS-2 & Sub Crossover network is composed of a
low-pass and an elliptical filter. Pushing the switch in
activates the two-way crossover, sending frequencies
below 80 Hz to the Sub output and above 80 Hz to the
DS-2 output. With the switch out, a full-range signal is
sent to both the DS-2 and Sub outputs. Since this filter
affects the DS-2 out and the SUB out the M3D-Subs need
to be connected to the Mid-Hi output receiving a full
range signal.

SIM® SYSTEM II
Applications
SIM System II is a powerful, compact instrumentation
product line comprising the SIM-2201 Sound Analyzer,
SIM-2403 Interface Network, and a selection of software
options, microphones and accessory cables. The
instrument is optimized for making audio-frequency
measurements of an acoustical system and applying
precise electronic corrections to adjust the system
response.
You can use the SIM System II in the following
applications:
SIM System II implements the Meyer Sound Source
Independent Measurement technique, a dual-channel
method that accommodates statistically unpredictable
excitation signals. Any excitation signal that
encompasses the frequency range of interest (even
intermittently) may be employed to obtain highly
accurate measurements of acoustical or electronic
systems. (For example, concert halls and loudspeaker
systems may be characterized during a musical
performance, using the program as the test signal.)
Housed in a four-space rack-mountable industrial
chassis, the SIM-2201 Sound Analyzer performs 32-bit
floating-point audio signal measurements with >100-dB
dynamic range (actual input signal range is greater
because of selectable gain). The instrument permits twoport measurements between any two of three frontpanel inputs (one microphone with switchable phantom
power, two isolated line level), and incorporates a rearpanel multipin interface for automated measurements of
two-channel systems. Optional hardware and software
upgrades permit up to sixty-four analysis channel
capacity.

Measurement Modes and Features
Measurement data may be displayed as amplitude versus
time (impulse response), or amplitude and phase versus
frequency (frequency response). A single-channel
spectrum mode is provided, and frequency domain data
are displayed with a logarithmic frequency axis. A Delay
Finder function determines and internally compensates
for propagation delays.
The SIM-2201 incorporates a front-panel–controllable
precision signal generator with low-distortion sine
wave, pink noise, and modulated, weighted pulse
outputs; multi-segment level meters for each
measurement input; a removable hard disk and DOS
format 1.44-Mbyte floppy disk drive for data storage;
high-resolution color monitor output; and dedicated
rear-panel multipin system interface connectors. A
headphone output is provided for aural monitoring of the
measurement inputs. User-friendly software with pulldown menus streamlines operation, and measurement
data may be exported to disk in ASCII format for postprocessing or laser printed for presentation.

MEYER SOUND MAPP ONLINE™
MAPP (Multipurpose Acoustical Prediction Program)
Online is a powerful, cross-platform, Java-based
application for accurately predicting the coverage
pattern, frequency response, impulse response, and
maximum SPL output of arrayed Meyer Sound
loudspeakers. Residing on the local host computer, the
Java application facilitates configuring arrays of a wide
variety of Meyer Sound products and, optionally, defines
the environment in which they will operate, including air
temperature, pressure, and humidity, as well as the
location and composition of walls. You can find MAPP
Online at:
www.meyersound.com/products/software/mapponline
NOTE: You will need to apply for use of MAPP
Online by clicking on the appropriate link on
the screen at the URL above. Once your
registration is complete, you will be given a
user name and password, which will be
returned to you by email along with the
address for the MAPP Online program itself.
Follow the online instructions to install the
program on your computer.
When a prediction is requested, data are sent over the
Internet to a high-powered server computer at Meyer
Sound that runs a sophisticated acoustical prediction
algorithm using high-resolution, complex (magnitude
and phase) polar data. Predicted responses are returned
over the Internet and displayed on the local host in color.
With MAPP Online, you can:
■
Plan an entire portable or fixed loudspeaker system
and determine delay settings for fill loudspeakers
■
Clearly see interactions among loudspeakers and
minimize destructive interference
■
Place microphones anywhere in the sound field and
predict the frequency response, impulse response,
and sound pressure at the microphone position
■
Refine your system design to provide the best
coverage of the intended audience area
■
Use a virtual VX-1 Program Equalizer to predetermine
the correct control settings for best system response
■
Gain valuable load information about the array to
determine rigging capacities
MAPP Online enables sound system designers to come to
an installation prepared with a wealth of information
that ensures the system will satisfy their requirements
“out of the box” – including basic system delay and
18 • M3D™ Line Array
equalization settings. Its accurate, high-resolution
predictions eliminate unexpected onsite adjustments and
coverage problems. With MAPP Online, every sound
system installation has the maximum chance of success.
MAPP Online is compatible with Windows, Linux, Unix,
and Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS X
version 10.1.2 or higher. MAPP Online requires Java Web
Start version 1.0.1_02 (included with Mac OS X).
RMS™ (REMOTE MONITORING SYSTEM)
Once an installation is complete, use Meyer Sound’s RMS
system to monitor system performance.
RMS is a real-time monitoring system that connects the
Meyer Sound self-powered speakers with an
IBM-compatible computer at the sound mix position or
other location. RMS software delivers extensive status
and system performance data directly to the operator
from every installed speaker.
RMS displays include amplifier voltages, limiting activity,
power output, temperature, fan and driver status,
warning alerts, and other key data for up to sixty-two
speakers, without a network repeater, at a display
update rate of two to five times per second. More
information is available, and with greater convenience
than from conventional monitor systems. The RMS
Monitor Program interface can be learned quickly, and
runs in a Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98, 2nd
Edition environment.
Monitor Displays
Each speaker appears on the computer’s color monitor as
a “view” in the form of a status icon, bar graph meter, or
text meter (numerical values), depending on user
preference.
Each view contains speaker identification information
and data from the amplifier, controller, driver, and
power supply of that particular unit. System status
conditions cause changes in Icon and bar graph
indicators, alerting the operator to faults or excessive
levels. The views are moveable and typically are
arranged on the screen to reflect the physical layout of
the loudspeakers. A user can design a screen “panel” of
icons or meters, as shown in Figure 29, and save it on the
computer’s hard disk, conveniently named for a unique
arrangement or performer. If the speaker installation
pattern changes completely, a new screen panel can be
built. If a different subset of already installed speakers is
to be used at the next show, only selected speakers need
appear on the monitoring screen for that performance.

Note: Power handling is measured under AES standard conditions: transducer driven continuously for two
hours with a band-limited noise signal (125 Hz to 8 kHz) having a 6 dB peak-to-average ratio.
Note: To eliminate interference at short wavelengths, the two front-facing 15-inch drivers work in combination at low frequencies (35
Hz to 140 Hz). At mid frequencies (140 Hz to 580 Hz) only one driver is fed from the crossover to maintain optimal polar and frequency
response characteristics.
