Research & Development
Prototype icosahedron incorporates 120 1.25-inch drivers developed by Meyer Sound.
CAL column array loudspeakers exemplify Meyer Sound's tradition of building real-world solutions based on scientific research. Following early collaborative experiments in sound field synthesis with the university of California berkeley's Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT), the Meyer Sound engineering team developed the proprietary design techniques that resulted in a product with digital beam steering so precise, it's unprecedented.
Greater precision requires greater processing power and lower-level control. This is why CAL powers and controls every driver individually, and each CAL loudspeaker houses advanced processors that use the best algorithms to run intensive mathematical models in real time.
While precision and power are critical, so too is quality. this is why the drivers and tweeters used in CAL were specifically designed by Meyer Sound's engineers to be used for sound field synthesis applications and are optimized for beam steering capabilities. It's also why we continue to insist on manufacturing these components at Meyer Sound headquarters in Berkeley, California according to our strict quality-control processes.
