Meyer Sound ULTRA-X42 Controlled Coverage Loudspeaker

Mid-sized point-source loudspeaker for applications including small concert halls, theaters, clubs, and houses of worship - powerful, yet compact with rotatable horn and QuickFly mounting capabilities
MFR# 09.294.001.01

Product Description

The Meyer Sound ULTRA-X42 Controlled Coverage Loudspeaker continues the tradition of the highly successful UPA loudspeakers—so versatile they have been a universal standard in almost every application for over 35 years. From touring performances to theme parks, worship venues to theater shows, and lecture halls to large scale concerts, Meyer Sound technology has delivered exceptional fidelity with high power, low distortion, and uniformly predictable behavior.

With these enhancements, the ULTRA-X42 loudspeaker provides high power output, low distortion, and consistent polar response in a more compact, vented enclosure. The ULTRA-X42 loudspeaker features two 8-inch cone low-frequency drivers and one 3-inch diaphragm compression driver coupled with a rotatable 70° x 50° Constant-Q horn.

Because of its proprietary, high-frequency horns, the beamwidth remains consistent within close tolerances in both the horizontal and vertical planes and across the horns’ operating frequency range. Uniformly predictable polar behavior takes much of the guesswork out of system design and assures optimal system performance.

A proprietary three-channel, class D digital power amplifier powers the ULTRA-X42 loudspeaker, which each have a total peak power output of 1950 watts. Advanced audio processing includes electronic crossover, correction filters for phase and frequency response, and driver protection circuitry. Phase-corrected electronics ensure flat acoustical amplitude and phase response, resulting in exceptional impulse response and precise imaging. The amplifier/processing package incorporates Meyer Sound’s Intelligent AC, which auto-selects the correct operating voltage, suppresses high voltage transients, filters EMI and provides soft-start power-up. The ULTRA-X42 cabinet provides audio XLR and powerCON20 input and looping output connectors.

Meyer Sound builds the trapezoidal enclosure out of premium multi-ply birch with a slightly textured black finish. A powder-coated, round-perforated steel grille provides protection to the front of the loudspeaker. The ULTRA-X42 includes 11 integral M8 rigging points. It also includes an integral 35 mm stand mount receptacle with M20 threads for added stability. With this versatile integrated rigging, the ULTRA-X42 is ready for a wide variety of applications including those requiring pole mounting, hanging individually in horizontal or vertical orientations, or clustering.

Features:

  • Exceptional fidelity and surprising power capability delivered in a compact, light enclosure
  • Extraordinarily flat amplitude and phase response ensures tonal accuracy and precise imaging
  • Controlled pattern
  • Rotatable horn provides installation flexibility
  • Integral stand mount and QuickFly® mounting options facilitate rigging

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
