About: Meyer Sound Amie-Sub Compact Cinema Subwoofer

The linear, self-powered Amie-Sub compact subwoofer offers outstanding sonic characteristics, such as clean, punchy transients and excellent phase coherence with impressive low-frequencies down to 22 Hz in a compact cabinet.


  • Linear frequency, phase and amplitude response with sonic accuracy at any level with high peak power output and excellent transient reproduction
  • Extended low frequency range down to 22 Hz
  • Extremely low distortion for exceptional low-frequency clarity
  • Optional modules allow seamless integration with Amie precision monitors to create bass-managed stereo systems and immersive systems up to 7.1
  • Self-powered design simplifies setup and increases reliability
  • Integrates with HMS-5, HMS-10, HMS-12 and HMS-15 surround loudspeakers in immersive applications
  • Integrates with UltraSeries loudspeakers in general applications.
  • Optional U-bracket allows flexibility of mounting in ceilings

The Amie-Sub was specifically designed to be the perfect companion for Amie precision monitors—creating a complete system by extending the system frequency response down to the lower limit of the audible range with easy integration in multi-channel configurations.

In addition, due its performance and versatility, the Amie-Sub is equally suited to complement other Meyer Sound loudspeakers, such as HMS-5, HMS-10, HMS-12, and HMS-15 in immersive surround applications or across other more general applications with UltraSeries loudspeakers.

Extensive research and measurements resulted in the creation of Amie-Sub integration modules to produce a consistent behavior across multiple configurations and environments.

The optional integration modules enable the Amie-Sub to excel at working in any multichannel configuration, creating a perfectly balanced and easy-to-set-up system with up to 7 Amie precision monitors.

The 2.1 integration module features 2 input channels using XLR connectors, while the 7.1 module features industry standard multi-pin DB-25 and can be used in 5.1 or 7.1 configurations with third-party, high-quality, 8-channel, DB-25-to-XLR cables.

The integration modules feature bass management processing as well as a dedicated phase-matched .1 input for the LFE channel with selectable +10 dB boost to meet a variety of standards.

The Amie-Sub has an operating frequency range of 22–160 Hz and a linear peak SPL of 124.5 dB with crest factor >11.5 dB, measured in half-space at 4 m and referred to 1 m using M-noise.

The Amie-Sub includes a single 15-inch, low distortion, long-excursion cone driver. The bass reflex cabinet employs optimized port design for high efficiency and low port distortion. Its slanted connector panel facilitates flush-mounting the cabinet against wall surfaces, reducing required installation depth to 19 inches including connectors.

The cabinet houses a Class D power amplifier and signal processing includes crossover, driver protection, and frequency and phase correction.

The Intelligent AC power supply provides automatic voltage selection, EMI filtering, soft current turn-on, and surge suppression.

Meyer Sound builds the Amie-Sub cabinet from premium birch plywood coated with a durable, slightly textured finish and includes a stamped-steel grille to protect the drivers. A grille frame with black cloth that mounts on top of the steel grille is optionally available.

The Amie-Sub comes standard with two 3/8-inch by 16 mounting points on each side for use with the optional MUB-Amie-Sub U-bracket for mounting the subwoofer from ceilings.

Optimize Your Studio Sound

  • EXCELLENT TRANSIENT REPRODUCTION - The linear, self-powered Amie-Sub subwoofer offers outstanding sonic characteristics such as clean, punchy transients and excellent phase coherence with impressive low-frequencies down to 25 Hz in a compact cabinet.
  • CLARITY ACROSS FREQUENCIES - The Amie-Sub boasts high peak power output with excellent transient reproduction, extended low frequency range down to 25 Hz, and extremely low distortion for exceptional low-frequency clarity.
  • WORKS WITH AMIE MONITOR AND OTHERS - The Amie-Sub has been optimized for use with Amie but can also be used with other Meyer Sound cinema loudspeakers, including Acheron Designer screen channel loudspeakers and the HMS‑5, HMS‑10, and HMS‑12 surround loudspeakers in immersive surround applications.
  • AMIE SYSTEMS - The Amie-Sub 7.1 & 2.1 integration modules produce a seamless integration with the Amie precision studio monitors. These systems are quickly deployable, near field monitoring solutions for post-production editorial and music.

Applications and Installation

  • STUDIO SOLUTIONS - The Amie-Sub is perfect for small- to medium-sized editing rooms, stereo and surround mixing for film and video postproduction, and broadcast monitoring.
  • GRILLE OPTIONS - A protective hex-stamped grille is standard and an optional grille frame with black cloth is available.
  • MOUNTING FLEXIBILITY - Options include the MUB-Amie-Sub U-bracket for mounting the subwoofer from ceilings.
  • SELF-POWERED ADVANTAGE - Self-powered technology eliminates amplifier racks, long loudspeaker cables, and any calibration of gain and crossover settings. The system can be rigged and ready in minutes.

Why Self-Powered?

Self-powered loudspeakers offer several advantages over their passive counterparts when it comes to fidelity, reliability, and simplicity. The great part is, you’ll start to reap the benefits of a self-powered system before you even power up.

Ease of Deployment

System set-up is so much easier when you have fewer components and fewer cables to worry about being miswired. Since self-powered loudspeakers incorporate amplification, you’ll never have to deal with matching speakers to amplifiers or connecting components. You don’t have to worry about calibration of gain and crossover setting which means more time focusing on the show. Eliminating amp racks doesn’t just streamline system deployment, it streamlines your inventory whether you’re a rental house or a road warrior. And when you consider that the average amp rack weighs nearly 300 pounds and takes up four feet of truck space, the efficiencies get even clearer. Let alone when you want to fly the amplifier racks to get closer to the speakers, often requiring more rigging points and more motors.

Predictable, Reliable Operation

Internal amplification is closely matched to drivers. Because individual components have been optimized during manufacturing, you can expect consistent sound from show to show. Built-in, factory-optimized protection circuitry provides extra assurance without degrading signal quality. And, when you have less equipment, you have less risk of failure.

Better Frequency and Phase Response

Because self-powered loudspeakers incorporate sophisticated processing, they are calibrated to exhibit optimal response curves in key performance parameters. Active crossovers are more precise, sophisticated designs, and bi-amped systems are time aligned, eliminating phase issues. The result? Accurate sound throughout the speaker’s range, at any volume level.

Unparalleled Clarity

In powered monitors, internal amplifiers are precision-matched to drivers, delivering optimal power at all times for cleaner sound. And because amps are built into loudspeaker cabinets, there’s no need for long lengths of connecting cable, which can become prone to distortion and signal loss.

Tighter Transients

Since self-powered loudspeakers have very short internal cables, amps inside can more effectively dampen driver mechanical motion, which leads to better sonic accuracy and tighter, crisper transients. (And, there’s none of the loss in levels and signal quality inherent over long cable distances.)
