Boasting Extraordinary Power-to-Weight Ratio and Ultra-Low Distortion to Set New Standards in Audience Experience, the LEOPARD™ and the 900-LFC join Meyer Sound’s flagship LEO® Family as its smallest and most versatile members. Boasting tremendous power-to-size ratio with ultra-low distortion, the patent-pending LEOPARD line array loudspeaker and the 900-LFC low-frequency control element­ offer an unprecedented level of clarity, power, precision, and ease of use. With state-of the-art design, groundbreaking engineering, and premium quality components, LEOPARD AND 900-LFC are designed to create an exceptional listening experience across a wide variety of applications from rental to install and rock ‘n’ roll to classical.

“I’ve always followed my own path in this business, never satisfied until something is the best it can be,” said John Meyer, Founder and CEO of Meyer Sound. “With the LEO Family we set out to reduce distortion to the theoretical limits and both LEOPARD and 900-LFC bring us even closer to the goal of the ultimate linear loudspeaker system. Quality components, amazing technology, incredible convenience, and elegant design are critically important, but it’s really the results that matter. To borrow an analogy from the auto industry, sometimes you have to just get behind the wheel and take it for spin. With LEOPARD and 900 LFC, you just have to listen. Once you hear it, you’ll want it.”



System highlights:

– The utmost simplicity and performance, right out of the box.
– 10 times less distortion with significantly more power than similar products in the same class.
– Newly designed and highly efficient class-D amplifiers that virtually eliminate distortion while consuming less power and generating less heat.
– LEOPARD can both anchor a main system in a medium-sized venue or integrate seamlessly with LYON™ in down- and out-fill systems.

– 900-LFC offers exceptional low frequency, clarity and impact inherited directly from its big brother, the 1100-LFC.

– Premium quality components built with structural integrity and designed to last, making LEOPARD and 900-LFC a long-term investment.
