Meridian’s in-ceiling and in-wall loudspeakers use identical DSP Digital Active technology to our free-standing models, and share the same accurate, authentic sound, making it easy to build systems that combine in-wall and free-standing designs.
DSP320 is the latest addition to Meridian’s installation loudspeaker range, and is the most compact of the three, at just 300mm square. In addition to in-wall applications, it can also be used in-ceiling where required.
The DSP320 features an 85mm wide-range driver and an oval bass driver, combining high performance with compact size. The use of a wide-range driver across the speech band helps create a loudspeaker with an effortless sound that remains clear, open and spacious, even at high listening levels. The drivers are mounted into the front of the enclosure itself, while a separate upper case holds the electronics, consisting of DSP, digital audio converters and an individual 80W Class D amplifier per driver.
DSP320 features Enhanced Bass Alignment (EBA) to provide accurate time-alignment of a wide range of frequencies across the range of both drivers – a significant advance over conventional time-alignment, which can only be performed on a per-driver basis.
Like all Meridian loudspeakers, the DSP320 is particularly easy to install. Being active designs, they require power to be supplied to the unit, along with one or RJ45 SpeakerLink digital audio/control cables (input and, optionally, output for daisy-chaining) – and that’s it. The installation may be flush-mounted or with an optional bezel to hold the paintable grille, which attaches magnetically. All the elements – fireproof rough-in box, frame, loudspeaker enclosure, included scrim and grille – allow room for adjustment (except when flush-mounted) so that the entire assembly can be fitted with precision into almost any type of wall.
