Meyer Sound Acheron Designer

Meyer Sound has expanded its EXP cinema line by introducing the compact Acheron Designer screen-channel loudspeaker. Developed in consultation with film sound designers and post-production facilities, Acheron Designer brings the low-distortion sonic quality of the other members of the EXP series to sound design studios, sound editing suites, private screening rooms, and small theaters, company officials said.

Acheron Designer is the 7th loudspeaker in Meyer Sound's EXP cinema product line and it's the smallest in the family. It measures 19 inches wide, 25.37 inches tall, and 14.62 inches deep, making it suited for installations where space behind the screen is limited, according to the company. It has an operating frequency range of 37Hz to 18kHz and a peak output of 130 dB SPL.

The patent-pending horn is designed to have a soft roll-off outside the coverage angle, while the loudspeaker's low 580Hz crossover point is ideal for cinema applications because it directs most of the dialog signal through the HF horn, Meyer Sound officials said.

Production prototypes of Acheron Designer have been in use by several noteworthy development partners in California, including Skywalker Sound, Bay Films, and 20th Century Fox Sound editorial department.

"Everybody is very happy with the sound and headroom of the Acheron Designers," said John Morris, supervising sound editor and sound designer at 20th Century Fox, in a statement.

A proprietary Meyer Sound two-channel amplifier powers the 4-inch high-frequency diaphragm compression driver and 12-inch low-frequency cone driver independently. Convection cooling of the rear-mounted, recessed heat sink allows the Acheron Designer to be placed flat up against a wall when necessary.

Meyer Sound's EXP cinema line of products now includes the Acheron 80, 100, Studio, and Designer loudspeakers, the HMS-10 surround loudspeaker, as well as the Acheron LF low frequency screen channel loudspeaker, X-800C cinema subwoofer, and Galileo loudspeaker management system.
