Suitable for a wide range of applications, including in-wall and in-ceiling installations, Meridian Audio’s Architectural range of loudspeakers includes the DSP520.2 and DSP640.2 in-wall loudspeakers, and the DSP320.2 in-ceiling/in-wall loudspeaker. According to the company, what makes these loudspeakers unique is their ability to use 2-channel, multichannel, or single-speaker systems, while consistently performing at a level of quality that far exceeds those usually associated with architectural speakers.
The DSP640.2 In-Wall Loudspeaker features eight power amplifiers delivering 100 W per drive unit and L+R mode for high-power soundbar applications. It is capable of delivering over 105 dB over 4m, providing full range sound with bass extension down to 40 Hz, together with Meridian’s on-board Enhanced Bass Alignment. In addition, 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 many similar qualities to the DSP640.2, but this model has an all-new quad-amp DSP design with four amplifiers delivering 100 W per drive unit. L+R mode technology has been integrated for when a single loudspeaker is used on its own, while delivering bass extension down to 50 Hz for full range sound. The DSP520.2 features 1 x 140mm long throw bass driver and 1 x 85mm 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 for a precise listening experience.
The DSP320.2 is the smallest solution within the Architectural range. Suitable for multiple high-performance applications, including home theater and 2-channel in-ceiling and in-wall applications, the DSP320.2 produces at least four times the bass performance of a passive in-ceiling speaker with similar cabinet volume (100mm/4-inch mounting depth). The timbre is matched to the DSP520.2 and DSP640.2, while also integrating the latest audio enhancing technologies from Meridian, including Enhanced Bass Alignment (EBA), Fifo Buffering, DSP Upsampling, Apodising Filters, MHR, and L+R mode.
