Meyer Sound HMS-5 Compact Cinema Surround Loudspeaker

The compact HMS-5's transducers include two 5-inch low- frequency, long-excursion cone drivers and one 2-inch diaphragm high-frequency compression driver

Product Description

The Meyer Sound HMS-5 Compact Cinema Surround Loudspeaker is optimized for use in cinemas, high-end private theatres, screening rooms, and other surround applications. Designed to complement Meyer Sound’s Acheron screen channel loudspeakers, the self-powered HMS-5 maintains a wide dynamic range, exceptional fidelity, and precise clarity during the most demanding of digital soundtracks. Boasting a wide frequency range and a generous linear peak SPL with very low distortion, the HMS-5 delivers the full intensity and nuance of cinema surround channels to every listener without compromise.

The HMS-5 is equipped with IntelligentDC technology and receives DC power and balanced audio from composite Phoenix 5-pin connectors. Powering the loudspeakers from an external DC source eliminates the need for AC conduits while preserving the advantages of self-powered systems. IntelligentDC loudspeakers require an MPS-488HP external power supply. The single-space 19-inch rack unit distributes DC power and balanced audio to up to eight HMS-5, HMS-10, or HMS-12 loudspeakers, or up to four HMS-15 loudspeakers. Composite multiconductor cables, such as Belden 1502 or equivalent, can deliver both DC power and balanced audio to loudspeakers at cable lengths up to 150 feet with just 1 dB of loss in peak SPL using 18 AWG wire. Longer cable runs are possible with heavier gauges. The MPS-488HP is optionally available with an RMS remote monitoring system module for monitoring voltage and current draw for its attached loudspeakers from a Mac or Windows-based computer.

The versatile HMS can be suspended or mounted on walls or ceilings at fixed or adjustable angles with optional half-yoke, U-bracket, or wall-mount brackets, allowing it to be deployed per the requirements of any surround application or immersive cinema format.

Meyer Sound’s industry-leading self-powered technology not only delivers unparalleled and consistent audio fidelity but also simplifies installation, whether designing new rooms from scratch or adding surround channels to existing installations. The HMS cabinet features a black textured finish and an acoustically transparent, detachable, black cloth grille that blend smartly with any theatre decor.

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!

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.

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.
