Meyer Sound introduces ‘most powerful cinema surround loudspeaker’
Described by the US manufacturer as its ‘most powerful cinema surround loudspeaker’, Meyer Sound has debuted the new self-powered HMS-15. Becoming the biggest in its series, the speaker has been designed to cater to studio’s transitioning into multi-channel immersive sound formats, such as Dolby Atmos and Barco Auro.
Designed for high-power, longer-throw applications in cinema exhibition auditoriums as well as in postproduction and screening rooms, the surround speaker is capable of operating in both 5.1 and 7.1 formats, but is best suited to studios operating and ‘immersive’ audio system.
Inside the cabinet, the HMS-15 houses a 15-inch long-excursion LF driver and a three-inch diaphragm HF compression driver coupled to an 80- x 50-degree (H x V) horn. It also has an inbuilt two-channel amplifier with active crossover, driver protection, phase correction and frequency response. This gives it a resultant frequency range of 50Hz to 18kHz and a maximum peak SPL of 133dB (at one metre)
The speaker can be mounted on walls or ceilings at fixed or adjustable angles with an optional wall-mount or U-bracket. It is available in two models, a 48VDC version powered by the manufacturer’s MPS-488HP external power supply, and the HMS-15AC for installations where AC power is already available.
