The Self-Powered Advantage
A self-powered loudspeaker, the UPQ incorporates a high-power, 2-channel, class AB/H power amplifier and sophisticated control circuitry housed within the cabinet, dramatically simplifying setup and installation. Supply power distribution to the system, connect a line level signal, and itís ready ó leaving you to focus on design implementation instead of installation.

The UPQ loudspeaker's on-board amplifier delivers 1275 watts of total burst power (2550 watts peak). Each model includes dedicated boards with electronic crossover, phase and frequency response correction filters, and limiters to protect and extend the life of the drivers. Limiter activity is easy to monitor with yellow limit LEDs on the rear panel.
The convection-cooled amplifier utilizes Meyer Soundís proprietary QuietCool fan technology. The QuietCool fan turns on at high audio levels to prevent overheating under extreme usage conditions.
This modular, field-replaceable amplifier/processing package incorporates Meyer Soundís Intelligent AC power supply, which automatically adjusts for any line voltage worldwide and provides both soft turn-on and transient protection. The UPQ amplifier is also compatible with the optional RMS remote monitoring system, which offers comprehensive monitoring of system parameters on a Windows-based network.
