Meridian Audio has introduced the DSP320.2 in-ceiling/in-wall loudspeaker. Whether mounted in a wall or ceiling, its wide-dispersion capabilities make it ideal for music listening in any environment, says Meridian. Designed and hand built in the UK, the full-range speaker boasts an 85mm wide-band driver and ‘racetrack’ bass driver, each housed in a separate enclosure for maximum acoustic isolation.

With a mounting depth of just 100mm, the new speakers claims to produce at least four times the bass performance of a passive in-ceiling speaker with similar cabinet volume. It’s timbre matched to the DSP520.2 and DSP640.2, and features the latest audio enhancing technologies from Meridian, including Enhanced Bass Alignment (EBA), Fifo Buffering, DSP Upsampling, Apodising Filters, MHR, and L+R mode.

For installers, the DSP320.2 promises a ‘fit and forget’ installation with a five-year warranty. Its CI friendly mounting depth allows the speaker to fit within standard stud walls, while magnets allow for easy removal of the grille and simple access to settings. The DSP320.2 can be installed with or without the frame, allowing the unit to blend seamlessly within any interior.

“The new DSP320.2 is an amazing addition to our Architectural range,” says Barry Sheldrick, Meridian’s Director of Sales. “We’ve been gaining some real momentum with the DSP320.2, as the lack of equipment and heat in the rack, combined with incredible performance is really appealing to dealers and their clients. The performance is also giving our dealers the confidence to push more expensive in-wall and in-ceiling loudspeakers as they know the result will be so impressive. We see them being deployed as overhead and rear channels in cinema systems, either side of a TV to boost the quality and clarity of those zones, as well as in premium distributed audio systems. If you haven’t heard the DSP320.2 yet, you really should head up to Cambridgeshire for a demo.”

The DSP320.2 retails for £1400.
