Meyer Sound's Leo Family Grows with Lina and 750-LFC

Debi Moen

Meyer Sound's Leo Family of linear sound reinforcement systems has been expanded with the addition of the diminutive new Lina compact linear line array loudspeaker and companion 750-LFC compact low frequency control element. Easily the smallest and lightest in the series, Lina and 750-LFC bring the inherent linearity, low distortion and exceptional power-to-size ratio of Leo Family technology to a wider range of applications and venues. The self-powered Lina loudspeaker measures only 20.27 inches (515 mm) wide and weighs in at a mere 43 lbs. (19.5 kg), making it an ideal choice when discreet appearance, portability and hanging weight restrictions are critical considerations. Also, because Lina shares the same structural footprint as Meyer Sound's current Mina line array loudspeakers, owners of Mina systems can add Lina to their existing inventory using the same rigging and mounting hardware. Mixed systems of Mina and Lina are compatible using the delay integration in Compass control software.Both products are expected to ship by June 1, 2017.
