Meyer Sound has expanded its EXP cinema line with the introduction of the compact Acheron Designer screen channel loudspeaker. Developed in close consultation with leadig 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, as well as private screening rooms and small theatres.
Now the seventh loudspeaker in Meyer Sound’s EXP cinema product line, Acheron Designer is the smallest in the family. Its compact dimensions – measuring only 19" wide, 25.37" tall, and 14.62" deep – are said to be ideal for installations where space behind the screen is limited. The Acheron Designer has an operating frequency range of 37Hz to 18kHz and a peak output of an impressive 130dB SPL, while its low 580Hz crossover point is suited for cinema applications as it directs most of the dialogue signal through the HF horn. 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 EditorialDepartment. “Everybody is very happy with the sound and headroom of the Acheron Designers,” said John Morris, supervising sound editor and sound designer, 20th Century Fox. “The speakers sold themselves!” A proprietary Meyer Sound two-channel amplifier powers the 4" high-frequency diaphragm compression driver and 12" 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. EXP has been installed in a growing number of commercial cinemas in North America, Europe, and Asia, as well as in facilities including American Zoetrope and De Lane Lea in London.
