Meridian Adds DSP320 to In-wall/In-ceiling Lineup

By |


Meridian-DSP320.jpgMeridian has introduced a new in-wall/in-ceiling speaker, the $2,500 DSP320. Designed to sonically complement the DSP520 in-wall and Meridian's freestanding DSP loudspeakers, the DSP320 combines a "Racetrack" oval bass driver with an 85mm wide-range driver in a 12-inch square box that measures just four inches deep. A two-channel amplifier with a linear power supply, DSP crossover, setup controls, and IR sensor is included. The DSP320 is available now.

From Meridian
Today's Meridian systems deliver the closest possible approach to the original performance and, for those who prefer a loudspeaker to be heard and not seen, the company is proud announce the expansion of its current range of loudspeakers with the new compact in-wall/in-ceiling DSP320.

With the increasing demand for in-wall and in-ceiling-mounted loudspeaker designs, particularly in Custom Installation applications, Meridian has released the DSP320.

The DSP320 in-wall/in-ceiling loudspeaker is designed for in-ceiling use while also being slim enough for an in-wall set-up. It is designed to deliver similar tone qualities and compatible performance and it can also be easily integrated into systems that combine Meridian's free-standing DSP loudspeakers with Meridian in-wall loudspeakers.

Like Meridian's current DSP520, the DSP320 has been introduced specifically to deliver wide dispersion for maximum listening area, with minimum unwanted diffraction thanks to careful baffle and grille design. The on-board DSP provides thermal and dynamic bass protection with very accurate transients, ensuring that when the loudspeaker is played at high levels, even over prolonged periods of time, the loudspeakers always deliver a clean, detailed and accurate sound.

As with all Meridian Loudspeakers, the DSP320 is enabled with Meridian's unique EBA technology (Enhanced Bass Alignment).
