Meyer Sound ( adds two new self-powered models to its family of line array loudspeaker systems. The M1D Ultra-Compact Curvilinear Array Loudspeaker is designed for small venues, and for single-cabinet applications such as under-balcony fills. The M2D Compact Curvilinear Array Loudspeaker is designed for mid-sized venues that need long throws. The M1D has a frequency range of 60-18k Hz and a max peak output of 123dB SPL (@ 1 m). The M2D has a 60-16k Hz operating frequency range and outputs a 136dB max SPL at 1 meter. Both offer tight vertical pattern control for smooth midrange, and employ a complex crossover that feeds mids to only one of the two low/mid-cone drivers, eliminating interference between the drivers and maintaining optimal polar and frequency response characteristics. Both arrays are compatible with Meyer's RMS Remote Monitoring System, for remote-system monitoring over a network from a laptop or desktop PC. Weather-protected versions of the M1D and M2D are available, as is a companion sub for the M2D that extends power bandwidth/frequency response down to 35 Hz.


Mipro's ( ACT Series of modular pro wireless systems feature ACT (Automatic Channel Targeting) for quick, precise frequency assignment, and receiver modules are hot-swappable. With up to 961 available UHF frequencies, up to 64 wireless channels can be remotely monitored and controlled from a PC positioned up to 3,280 feet away. Model ACT-707S is a half-rack, single-channel receiver; model ACT-707 is a 4-channel receiver in a single-rackspace chassis. Both receivers operate with the ACT-707H handheld transmitter and ACT-707T bodypack transmitter. Accessories include a color LCD, integrated antenna divider, summing mixer and detachable universal power supply. The system also provides comprehensive RF spectrum analyzer and RF-recorder functions.


QSC Audio Products Inc. ( debuts the 215PCM active subwoofer, the core module of QSC's ISIS (Integrated, Self-Powered, Self-Processed Industrial Systems) speaker line. Featuring dual 15-inch drivers and an integral 3,000-watt amp, the 215PCM can also provide two channels of power amplification and processing electronics for full-range or bi-amp “top box” speakers. Both processing units offer eight presets, user-configurable via QSC's Signal Manager software. Frequency response of the 215PCM subwoofer is 35-115 Hz (-3 dB). A passive model (the 215SB) has the identical enclosure, minus the amplification and DSP.


The FREQ-OUT 116 Anti-Feedback Processor from Peavey's Architectural Acoustics division ( includes a powerful DSP engine, allowing the installer to reduce feedback easily and improve system gain without compromising sonic performance. Designed to eliminate feedback in sound system applications, the FREQ-OUT 116 couples powerful “seek and destroy” software with 16 precision dynamic-depth notch filters. The front panel interface provides easy access to the processor's controls and operational modes. A three-state LED indicates current activity for each filter, and a Pre-Show mode rings out the sound system during the initial tuning process. A Performance mode ensures that feedback reduction continues during normal system use. Additional features include the Panic Filter and Wide Filter modes, four preset memory locations and a tamper-proof front panel.
