Product Description

At the heart of Meyer Sound's EXP line of cinema products are the Acheron high-performance screen channel loudspeakers. The Meyer Sound Acheron Designer Screen Channel Loudspeaker is the most compact of the Acheron models, making it an excellent choice for sound design suites, screening rooms, private theatres, and small commercial theatres. Optimized for installation behind perforated screens, the Acheron Designer 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 Designer uses the same patent-pending horn technology and high-frequency compression driver as the other Acheron models, delivering the same 38 Hz to 17 kHz frequency response. This consistency of fidelity between Acheron models ensures that soundtracks monitored with the Acheron Designer translate accurately when played back in larger rooms with the Acheron 100, Acheron 80, Acheron Studio, or other calibrated cinema system.

Designed specifically for cinema, the Acheron horn features a very soft roll-off beyond its 80-degree horizontal by 50-degree vertical coverage pattern. The extremely well-behaved horn ensures an accurate acoustic crossover and consistent vertical coverage pattern through the critical crossover range between the low- and high-frequency drivers. The optimized crossover point places most of the dialog in the horn, which is ideal for cinema applications.

Designed and manufactured at Meyer Sound's headquarters in Berkeley, California, the Acheron Designer’s drivers include one 12-inch low-frequency cone driver, housed in an optimally tuned, ported enclosure, and one high-frequency 4-inch diaphragm compression driver. The drivers yield uncompromising quality and are powered by sophisticated onboard amplification. The self-powered design ensures consistent results and simplifies installations in both new and existing rooms.

A proprietary two-channel, Class-D amplifier powers each driver channel independently. Onboard processing includes driver protection circuitry, an electronic crossover, and correction filters, ensuring flat frequency and phase responses. The rear-mounted, recessed heat sink yields efficient convection cooling, and allows the unit to be placed flat against walls, when necessary.

The Acheron Designer enclosure is constructed of premium birch plywood and coated with a low-gloss, black-textured finish. The cabinet is fitted with two attachment points on the bottom for the optional MYA-DES cradle-style yoke, allowing the unit to be suspended from a single hanging point. An optional, black cloth grille frame is available for installations where the Acheron Designer is not placed behind a screen.

Features:

  • High peak power output with ultralow distortion
  • Exceptional fidelity and extended high-frequency performance
  • Constant-Q horn yields uniform response throughout coverage area
  • Extraordinarily flat amplitude and phase response for tonal accuracy
  • Seamless integration with HMS-10 surround loudspeakers and X-800C subwoofer

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
