Meridian Audio Highlights Architectural Loudspeaker Solutions

Meridian Audio’s Architectural range of loudspeakers, suitable for many applications, includes the DSP520.2 and DSP640.2 in-wall loudspeakers and the DSP320.2 in-ceiling / in-wall loudspeaker. The loudspeakers can use two-channel, multichannel or single-speaker systems.

The DSP640.2 in-wall loudspeaker has eight power amplifiers delivering 100 watts-per-drive unit and L+R mode for soundbar applications. It is capable of delivering over 105dB over 4 meters, providing full range sound with bass extension down to 40 Hz, together with Meridian’s on-board enhanced bass alignment which aligns the high, mid and upper bass frequencies for added clarity. Further, Meridian’s Centre Elevation technology raises the perceived image location from an under-screen loudspeaker, so it seems to appear from the center of the screen.

The DSP520.2 In-Wall Loudspeaker has a new quad-amp DSP design with four powerful amplifiers delivering 100w per drive unit. L+R mode technology has been integrated similarly to the DSP640.2 while also delivering bass extension down to 50Hz for full range sound. The DSP520.2 features one 140-millimeter throw bass driver and one 85-millimeter wide-range drivers for full-frequency response, maximum dispersion and wide listening area. It also comes equipped with the latest on-board Meridian technologies including Centre Elevation.

The DSP320.2 is the smallest, yet most versatile, solution within the architectural range. The DSP320.2 produces four times the bass performance of a passive in-ceiling speaker with similar cabinet volume (100 millimeters / 4″ mounting depth). The timbre is matched to the respected DSP520.2 and DSP640.2, while also integrating additional technologies from Meridian, including enhanced bass alignment (EBA), fifo bBuffering, DSP upsampling, apodising filters, MHR and L+R mode.

“The performance of these loudspeakers is unparallel. The architectural range has given our dealers the confidence to push more expensive in-wall and in-ceiling solutions to their customers as they know the quality is so impressive,” says Barry Sheldrick, Meridian’s director of sales. “Whether integrated as a surround sound system or implemented to boost the quality and clarity of specific zones, as far as architectural loudspeakers go, the sound is simply astonishing.”

With compact depth, the DSP640.2, DSP520.2 and DSP320.2 Loudspeakers can be used as a full-range loudspeaker with no need for an additional subwoofer. It comes with a five-year warranty.
