The compact line-array column ME46V MKII from our VERTICAL Series is specifically designed to offer a degree of sonic excellence comparable to the standards of the hi-fi world. It has primarily been conceived for indoor permanent installations (theatres, auditoria, etcetera) where the highest sound quality and voice intelligibility are critical. However, thanks to its wide coverage and astounding performance (137 dB peak at 1 metre), it can be used in outdoor settings and also as part of portable PA systems when combined with our SUBSeries subwoofers.

In particular, the ME46V MKII / ME218FHA setup delivers a level of performance and sound quality that stands out as absolutely phenomenal.

This column, remarkably lightweight (23 kg) and easy to handle, integrates a custom passive filter with HEPC® (High-End Phase Coherence) filtering technology that optimises the number of necessary amplification channels by reducing the output to 1 way. The recommended amplification for a set of 2 ME46V MKII units plus 2 SUB Series passive subwoofers is the Maga Engineering® ME 10K amplifier.

The ME46V MKII compact line-array column from the VERTICAL Series is suitable for multiple applications, such as the two configurations suggested below:

1) Coverage with the ME46V MKII compact line-array column stacked on a ME218FHA subwoofer with extension bar.


2) Coverage for a medium-sized theatre or auditorium with the ME46V MKII compact line-array column in a wall mount setup.
