Surrounds and Subwoofers

Designed to complement Acheron screen channel loudspeakers for a complete EXP system, our new surround and subwoofer models offer exemplary performance.

HMS-10

We've been relying on Meyer Sound HD-1 monitors for years in our sound design rooms, and our experience with X-800 subwoofers in our Stag Theatre has also been highly successful. So the application of Meyer Sound technology to screen channel and surround speakers is a development that we are following with great anticipation.”

- Jim Austin
Senior Engineer, Skywalker Sound

HMS-10 is a full-range two-way loudspeaker optimized for surround channels in theatres and dub stages. Designed for a new era of coherent surround sound in theatres, HMS-10 delivers surround information with remarkable clarity and detail, producing a robust peak power output of 126 dB SPL at 1 meter. HMS-10 also offers the exceptional phase coherence that is crucial for accurate reproduction of spatial cues, which makes them particularly well-suited for theatres screening in 3D.

The compact and lightweight HMS-10 is specifically designed for surround installations. A 15-degree front side slant keeps the sound directed at the audience when the back of the enclosure is flush-mounted, and an 80-by-80-degree horn provides wide coverage. The IntelligentDC remote powering for the HMS-10's built-in amplifiers provides the advantages of self-powered loudspeakers but simplifies installation by allowing connection via low-voltage wire run outside of conduit (subject to local codes). The HMS-10 is THX approved.

X-800C

X-800C is a linear, powerful subwoofer for cinema that features two Meyer Sound long-excursion 18-inch drivers in a tuned, vented, self-powered cabinet. Offering excellent phase coherence for smooth transitioning from screen channels to LFE, the X-800C delivers extended low frequency response with ample headroom for clear, punchy transients even at very high levels. The X-800C is THX Approved.
