I remember the one I had on my ML3's before I upgraded them. Always gave it a cheesy look.

The one I am thinking of was a handful of piezo horns, cut down slightly and mounted sideways. It's not on their website under discontinued products.

They probably want to erase all traces of that product :)

The only ones I remember were the 3 piezo tweeters in the MSL-3. IIRC they were added after the speaker was introduced.

Probably on the same piezo order as the ones they used in the original UPMs

Duane,

Sounds more like the Klipsch MTM tweeter array than anything Meyers, though I do remember piezos used in MSL-3 for a short period.

Meyers did have an experimental "long throw" tweeter array using a large amount of dome tweeters with processing to create a virtual point source, but that experiment seems to elude detection on the interwebs now. IIRC, that array was late 20th or early 21st century.

The Klipsch MTM tweeter array topped their 4 way MCM stack, it used 5 piezos (sometimes cut down) in an arc. That series was produced during the latter part of the 1970s through early 1980s.

Art, I remember the Klipsch. The meyer I am describing had a handful of piezo 3x6 (?) horns mounted sideways in a curved shape. The edges were cut off, and the whole thing was kid of bizarre. This was probably early 90's, or earlier. I had several conversations with meyer service people, and was always disappointed in the false info they would repeat. If I remember correctly, one of them told me they weren't using normal peizos, but a custom OEM unit.
They also told me that they weren't using Yamaha and JBL drivers at that time......

Peavey had the same sort of "array" in the project series.

That would have been in the early to mid 80s I remember.
