The LEOPARD compact linear line array loudspeaker is the newest member of Meyer Sound’s award-winning LEO Family of loudspeakers, designed to reproduce audio faithfully with tremendous power, superior intelligibility and ultra-low distortion. Like its bigger siblings LEO-M and LYON, LEOPARD delivers the advantages of self-powered design, linear response and precise directional control.
LEOPARD breaks new ground in loudspeaker array performance, providing exceptional phase coherence and consistent coverage in a light, compact cabinet, making it extremely versatile. Its innovative amplifier, driver, and horn designs ensure that LEOPARD systems reproduce any sound source with linearity over a wide dynamic range, from speech and classical music to rock and EDM. LEOPARD loudspeakers are optimized for use with minimum processing, yielding excellent performance right out of the box.
LEOPARD is portable and easy to configure. Its low weight and narrow profile make it well-suited for small- to medium-sized touring acts and fixed installations, where scalability and ease of rigging are essential. A newly-designed class D amplifier affords unprecedented efficiency to LEOPARD, significantly lowering distortion while reducing power consumption and operating temperature. The onboard amplifier and control circuitry are contained in a single, field-replaceable module.
For low-frequency enhancement, LEOPARD pairs with Meyer Sound’s 900-LFC low-frequency control element, which can be flown as part of LEOPARD arrays without transition hardware. The 900-LFC shares with LEOPARD the advantages of excellent power-to size ratio, improved efficiency, and versatility.
In addition to working as a standalone system, LEOPARD can also be used as a supplemental fill loudspeaker in LEO-M and LYON systems.
LEOPARD systems can be driven by Meyer Sound’s Galileo Callisto™ 616 array processor, which provides matrix routing, alignment and processing for array components. To guarantee optimum system performance, LEOPARD systems should be designed with Meyer Sound’s MAPP™ software. LEOPARD and 900-LFC loudspeakers work with Meyer Sound’s RMS™ remote monitoring system, which provides comprehensive monitoring of system parameters from a Mac® or Windows®-based computer.
