Meyer Sound Acheron 80 High-Performance Screen Channel Loudspeaker
At the heart of Meyer Sound's EXP line of cinema products is the Meyer Sound Acheron 80 High-Performance Screen Channel Loudspeaker. Optimized for installation behind perforated screens, the twoway loudspeaker combines the advantages of self-powered technology and innovative horn design to deliver exceptional, precise coverage for the left, right, and center sound channels for cinema.
The Acheron 80 features an 80-degree horizontal by 50-degree vertical horn, which is ideal for wide theatres. The Acheron horn was specifically designed for cinema use and features a very soft roll-off outside the extremely well behaved coverage angle. The horn is fixed within the enclosure to ensure an accurate acoustic crossover, phase response, and an incredibly consistent vertical pattern between the low and high frequencies. The Acheron’s 580 Hz crossover point places most of the dialog in the horn, which is ideal for cinema applications.
Boasting a frequency response of 38 Hz to 17 kHz at ±4 dB, as well as a generous peak output of 139 dB with very low distortion, the Acheron stands up to the most demanding of digital soundtracks, maintaining a wide dynamic range and full fidelity. Designed and manufactured at Meyer Sound's headquarters in Berkeley, California, the Acheron's drivers include one 15-inch low-frequency neodymium magnet cone driver and one high-frequency 4-inch diaphragm compression driver. The drivers yield uncompromising quality and full bandwidth, making the Acheron suitable for small and medium theatres, re-recording stages, and production and postproduction facilities.
The Acheron's sophisticated onboard amplification produces consistent and predictable results in any system design. The proprietary Meyer Sound power amplifier is a two-channel, class AB/H amplifier with complementary MOSFET output stages that yields a total output of 1685 W (3370 W peak). Built-in signal processing includes an electronic crossover and correction filters — to achieve a flat phase and frequency response — along with driver protection circuitry. The self-powered design not only ensures consistent results but also simplifies installation in both new and existing rooms.
Strategically placed 3/8-inch threaded points on the side corners of the Acheron cabinet allow the unit to be fixed to floors with uptilt or downtilt using optional mounting brackets. The Acheron can also be mounted on top of the Acheron LF loudspeaker, also with uptilt or downtilt, using optional stacking brackets.
