Two more rental houses have placed orders for the new, patented Meyer Sound LEOPARD™ linear sound reinforcement system: Eenorm Facilitair of the Netherlands and Hurricane Sound & Light of Slovakia. Only recently announced at Prolight + Sound, the LEOPARD line array loudspeaker and its accompanying 900-LFC low-frequency control element are the smallest and most versatile members of Meyer Sound's flagship LEO® Family.
“After listening to the LEOPARD system, I was not only surprised but shocked,” recalls Martin Štefanek, managing director of Hurricane. “I couldn’t believe a system so small and lightweight would have such enormous power and brilliant sound—not to mention the simplicity of the rigging and connections.”
For Eenorm Facilitair, flexibility and sonic performance are key to the purchase decision. “We were stunned at the sound quality of LEOPARD right out of the box,” says Hans Snijder, owner of Eenorm Facilitair. “We invested in LEOPARD due to its versatility—we can supply almost any venue in the Netherlands with this system when combined with our other Meyer Sound products. It will certainly increase our business.”
Eenorm has purchased 24 LEOPARD loudspeakers, four 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements, and a Galileo Callisto array processor. The new loudspeakers will complement Eenorm Facilitair’s existing Meyer Sound inventory, which includes MINA™ line array loudspeakers, 1100-LFC elements, and more.
Hurricane’s investment comprises 16 LEOPARD loudspeakers and six 900-LFC elements, in addition to two UPQ-1P loudspeakers, two MJF-210 stage monitors, and one Galileo® Callisto™ array processor.
The LEOPARD loudspeaker and 900-LFC element are designed to create an exceptional listening experience across a variety of applications from rental to install, and rock 'n' roll to classical. LEOPARD Boasting tremendous power-to-size ratio with ultra-low distortion, an array of six LEOPARD loudspeakers with two 900-LFC elements can be flown using only a ½ ton motor. Each LEOPARD loudspeaker is optimized for an array of six cabinets or longer, with default low-mid array compensation for utmost simplicity out of the box. It also features a new class-D amplifier that consumes less power and generates less heat.
