Meyer Sound Debuts New System Design Tool


Meyer Sound has announced MAPP XT, claiming it to be the first audio system design tool that allows users to design systems with truly useful loudspeaker headroom information. In addition to an updated user interface and new features that streamline workflow, MAPP XT shows the maximum levels to which Meyer Sound loudspeaker systems can be driven while maintaining linear performance, empowering customers to specify high-performance systems that reflect the needs of their shows.

Headroom information is the most significant new feature in MAPP XT, and can be viewed from the perspectives of two different input signals. They include the traditional broadband pink noise and B-Noise, a new input signal designed to better represent the most common input spectrum in real-world applications.

Other new features in MAPP XT include:

  • The Auto-Splay feature allows users to select the starting and finishing angles and automatically calculates the optimum splay angles between cabinets.
  • Factor of Safety shows whether a proposed LEO or LYON array is within limits for the given configuration and angle to help users meet safety standards including 5:1, 7:1, and BGV-C1.
  • The Gradient Subwoofer Array Tool quickly and accurately configures cardioid low-frequency arrays with the 500-HP, 900-LFC, and 1100-LFC models, saving valuable time for system designers.
  • Trace Store and Recall provide fast comparisons of different configuration options.
  • Relative Phase Response data allows users to combine different elements more easily.
  • PDF Export promotes easier sharing of system designs among project team members.

MAPP XT is launched in conjunction with the new, patent-pending LEOPARD and 900-LFC linear line array system. To register or to learn more about MAPP XT, go here.
