Meyer Sound has introduced the USW-210P Compact Narrow Subwoofer, a self-powered loudspeaker providing robust forceful low-frequency reproduction in a slender form factor that is ideally suited to space-restricted installations or very small performance stages. The dual 10-inch driver configuration produces greater output than typical single 12-inch designs, making the USW-210P a preferred alternative wherever convincing bass power must be combined with minimal cabinet width and depth.
“We created it for a customer who wanted superior, full-range music reproduction in retail outlets,” says Pablo Espinosa, Meyer Sound’s vice president & chief loudspeaker designer. ”Because their architect and interior designer had limited the dimensions allowed for loudspeakers, we made USW-210P to fit the space. It exceeded all performance expectations and we decided to make it available in our product line.”
The USW-210P has an operating frequency range of 30Hz to 140Hz with a conservatively rated linear peak SPL of 126dB free field at 1m using pink noise. The long, slender bass reflex cabinet employs the same port design as Meyer Sound’s flagship 1100-LFC low frequency control element for high efficiency and low port distortion. Cabinet dimensions are 1050mm high, 305mm wide and 305mm deep. A slanted connector panel allows mounting flush to a wall surface with cables connected. Weight is 24.6kg.
The USW-210P cabinet houses a two channel Class D power amplifier with dedicated onboard processing including crossover, driver protection, and frequency and phase correction. The built-in crossover accepts full-range signals, facilitating daisy-chain system configurations for signal distribution, and eliminating the need for external crossovers in smaller systems. The Intelligent AC power supply provides automatic voltage selection, EMI filtering, soft current turn-on, and surge suppression.
The optional RMS remote monitoring system module provides comprehensive monitoring of loudspeaker parameters from a Mac or Windows-based computer running Compass control software via the RMServer interface. Optional XLR five-pin connectors allow the use of composite cables for carrying both balanced audio and RMS signals.
The USW-210P cabinet is constructed of premium birch plywood and is coated with a durable, black textured finish. A stamped steel grille protects the drivers. Options include Meyer Sound weather protection and custom colour finishes for specific cosmetic requirements.
The USW-210P is supplied standard with M8 mounting points at top and bottom. In addition to horizontal placement, the USW-210P also may be mounted free-standing in a vertical orientation (connectors at top or bottom) using an optional aluminium base plate. A U-bracket for wall or ceiling mounting also is available as an option.
The versatile USW-210P integrates easily with Meyer Sound full-range loudspeaker systems, including CAL and UltraSeries loudspeakers. Applications include retail and hospitality installations, theatrical sound reinforcement, houses of worship, conference rooms, high-end home theatre and corporate AV systems.
