Breathtaking Cinema Sound
HEAR THE DIFFERENCE IN EVERY DETAIL
Today’s cinema technology offers unprecedented potential for sonic thrills, and a dynamic soundtrack is as important as the action onscreen. Whether you’re creating or playing back cinema sound, rely on the Meyer Sound Acheron system to meet the demands of the state-of-the-art film mix, so the audience hears everything from the softest whisper to room-rattling explosions, exactly as intended.
A SCALABLE SONIC EXPERIENCE
Provide the truest translation of the mix from creation through delivery: Acheron’s cinema-optimized components are ideal for dub stages, production and post-production facilities, and theatres of any size. With four full-range models and a subwoofer, there’s a configuration that matches your cinema sound needs.
SELF-POWERED AND STREAMLINED
Acheron’s robust Class AB/H amplification, correction filters, and driver-protection circuitry ensure consistent, rock-solid performance, and a self-powered design means installation is plug and play.
A REVOLUTIONARY SYSTEM DESIGN
Acheron’s well-designed horn and processing technologies are optimized for cinema sound: Its patented horn and associated processing filters driving the high-frequency driver are designed to deliver uniform response across its coverage area, extending vertical beamwidth control with a soft off-axis roll-off, for a full LCR experience in every seat. The horn’s precise position within its enclosure ensures accurate phase response and vertical consistency between low and high frequencies. With this patented system and innovative lower crossover frequency, the 4-inch compression driver and horn handle the majority of the dialog range but blend seamlessly with the low-frequency driver for maximum intelligibility.
Meet the Acheron Family
Acheron 100 and 80 two-way, full-range speakers deliver precise coverage for cinema screen sound channels. Each model is based around Acheron’s signature horn design and 15-inch woofer: The 100 offers 100-degree horizontal coverage, for wider theatres and re-recording stages; while the 80 offers 80-degree horizontal coverage, for narrower theatres and dub stages. Models measure just 21 inches deep, making them ideal for tight behind-screen installs.
Acheron LF pairs with Acheron 80 and 100 speakers to deliver extended low-frequency headroom and more punch in bigger rooms. Its double-15″ cabinet houses the same low-frequency driver found in the Acheron 80 and 100, and pairs perfectly with either model to form a column that places all three in phase alignment.
The Acheron Studio is a compact version of the Acheron 80 geared toward smaller theatres, re-recording stages, and post-production facilities. It offers the same fidelity and performance as its larger Acheron siblings and features a convection-cooled amplifier for ultra-quiet operation in studio environments. Acheron Studio integrates seamlessly with Meyer Sound’s HMS family of surround loudspeakers and the Meyer Sound X‑800C cinema subwoofer to create complete systems for smaller venues.
Aimed at sound designers, screening rooms, and small theatres, the full-range Acheron Designer offers the same horn technology as the Acheron 80 and Studio, in an even more compact footprint that’s ideal for use tight spaces behind screens. Rear-mount, recessed convection cooling allows Acheron Designer to be placed flat against a wall. Acheron Designer integrates seamlessly with any of Meyer Sound’s HMS family of surround loudspeakers and the X‑800C Meyer Sound cinema subwoofer to create a complete system.
“No question, it’s simply the best film sound I’ve ever heard.”
