New York, NY (March 27, 2014)—Meyer Sound has released its new self-powered HMS-15 surround loudspeaker for cinema, debuting at CinemaCon 2014 in Las Vegas.
The HMS-15 is designed for high-power, longer-throw applications in cinema exhibition auditoriums as well as in post-production and screening rooms. While it is suitable for 5.1 and 7.1 formats, the HMS-15 is intended for immersive formats such as Dolby Atmos and Barco Auro.
Inside the cabinet, the HMS-15 houses a 15-inch long-excursion LF driver; a three-inch diaphragm HF compression driver coupled to a consistent 80 degree H x 50 dgree V horn; and two-channel amplification with active crossover, driver protection, and correction for phase and frequency response. It has a frequency range of 50 Hz to 18 kHz and a peak SPL of 133 dB (@ 1 m) with very low distortion.
The HMS-15 can be mounted on walls or ceilings at fixed or adjustable angles with the optional wall-mount brackets or U-bracket, adapting to the physical requirements of any surround or immersive sound format.
