Advanced M Series Technology in a Versatile Package
MILO was designed specifically to afford more flexibility in designing high power array systems for medium-to-large venues, while at the same time reducing the time and costs associated with rigging, flying and transportation.
MILO is a four-way design, with the operating frequency range divided into a low frequency band (60 Hz - 300 Hz), low-mid band (300 Hz - 560 Hz), mid-high band (560 Hz - 4.2 kHz), and very-high frequency band (4.2 kHz - 18 kHz). All MILO transducers are proprietary designs manufactured at Meyer Sound's state-of-the-art Berkeley factory.
Low/Low-Mid Frequencies: Power and Definition
In MILO, the low/low-mid frequencies are reproduced by two 12-inch cone drivers incorporating neodymium magnets for the highest efficiency and power handling with reduced weight. In the lowest frequency range, from 60 Hz to about 300 Hz, both drivers operate in tandem for maximum power, each driven by a dedicated amplifier channel providing 1125 watts of peak output power.
- High output from a lightweight, self-powered package
- Easily hung with MILO 60, MILO 120, MICA, or M3D-Sub
- Unique crossover preserves LF/MF definition
- Minimal interference between drivers
In the critical low-mid band, MILO utilizes a complex active crossover design to assure the smoothest possible response. Above 300 Hz, where less power is required, the crossover feeds full signal to only one of the two 12-inch drivers, rolling off the other. This ingenious technique eliminates interference between the drivers that otherwise occurs at shorter wavelengths, enabling MILO to maintain optimal polar and frequency response characteristics throughout the low and low-mid operating ranges.
This strategy results in a single cone driver reproducing low-mid frequencies and a single compression driver for mid-high frequency reproduction. The use of one driver for each frequency band avoids the difficulties encountered by line array systems employing multiple cone drivers to reproduce the entire midrange- in some cases even cross-firing the drivers. Multiple drivers working in this critical range can create phase problems due to multiple arrival times, while cross-firing can introduce combing and lobing issues, even potentially modulating the high-frequency signal.
