From the Manufacturer
Meyer Sound’s UPJunior ultracompact VariO loudspeaker brings the sonic signature, flexible rigging, and extraordinary power-to-size ratio of the award-winning UPJ-1P to an even more compact package suitable for a broad range of applications. The UPJunior combines the advantages of self-powered systems with the placement and arraying flexibility afforded by an 80° x 50° VariO rotatable horn and QuickFly® rigging. Though remarkably compact and lightweight, the UPJunior delivers a robust peak power output of 126 dB SPL at 1 meter, making it suitable for use as either a single, primary loudspeaker or within multicabinet horizontal and vertical arrays. Applications include AV presentations, small- to medium-sized sound reinforcement systems, fill, delay, effects, and under-balcony coverage, as well as distributed systems. The UPJunior was designed for flexibility. Whether oriented vertically or horizontally, its VariO horn can be easily rotated to obtain the optimum horizontal and vertical coverage in any situation. In size, weight, and output, the UPJunior integrates seamlessly with the UltraSeries™ UPM-1P/2P and UPJ-1P loudspeakers. As a self-powered loudspeaker, the UPJunior incorporates a two-channel, class AB/bridged power amplifier and sophisticated control circuitry housed within the cabinet, dramatically simplifying setup and installation. The UPJunior’s on-board amplifier delivers 300 watts of total burst power. The optional RMS™ remote monitoring system module allows comprehensive monitoring of all key system parameters from a Windows®-based computer. The UPJunior’s low-mid frequency section employs an 8-inch neodymium magnet cone driver, while the high-frequency section utilizes an efficient 0.75-inch exit, 2-inch diaphragm compression driver. Both drivers are designed and manufactured by Meyer Sound in Berkeley, Calif. The UPJunior is extraordinarily versatile in the number of ways it can be mounted, flown, and arrayed, allowing it to be used as either a main loudspeaker or fill loudspeaker, or even as a stage monitor. The UPJunior’s cabinet includes end plates made of heavy-duty, high-strength, corrosionresistant 6061-T6 aluminum, complete with threaded M8 attachment points for basic eyebolt rigging or third-party pole assemblies. QuickFly rigging options including the MAAM-UPJunior array adapter (also made from 6061-T6 aluminum), the MUB-UPJunior U-bracket, and the MYA-UPJunior mounting yoke assembly. Other options include weather protection for fixed applications and custom color finishes for specific cosmetic requirements.
