Meridian DSW.2 Subwoofer
DSW.2 DSP Subwoofer
A Powerful Addition
The DSW.2 is designed to provide deep bass in rooms where a compact loudspeaker is required. Featuring a downward firing woofer, this design tapers at the top reducing the visual impact on its surroundings. All of the connecting cables, SpeakerLink and Power, attach discretely at the bottom of the cabinet, allowing for discreet installations.
The DSW.2 provides deep and impactful bass that will perfectly play its part in a two-channel or complete surround-sound set-up made up of any of our Digital Active DSP Loudspeakers.
Features Meridian’s unique Enhanced Bass Alignment (EBA) technology where bass, mid and treble all reach you at the same time, in perfect alignment.
300W amplifier with full DSP control.
High power-long-throw 12in driver and amplifier combination delivers maximum performance under total DSP control.
Music and Movie Modes for optimal performance.
We are the masters of Digital Signal Processing
With its extensive Research and Development programme Meridian has pioneered the development of a host of innovative audio technologies many of which feature in today’s Meridian products.
The traditional setup – amplifiers driving passive loudspeakers – is inefficient, limiting sound quality. Meridian loudspeakers contain a complete, matched audio system with efficient DSP crossovers, multiple DACs and driver-specific amplifiers, giving higher overall quality, less power use, and the performance of a traditional loudspeaker eight times the physical volume.
Traditional audio systems often require large, expensive cables to maintain their performance. Meridian's SpeakerLink uses an “Ethernet style” cable that delivers pristine digital sound and control down a single cable between Meridian components. The result is simple, unobtrusive, and cost-effective cables that are easy to install
Each sample of a digital recording must remain evenly spaced in time. Unfortunately, timing can vary, especially when reading discs. This is “jitter”, degrading music's sense of space and diminishing realism. Meridian's multiple “First In, First Out” buffering system minimises jitter, ensuring perfect timing and improved clarity. You enjoy a clearer feeling of the instruments and their interrelationship.
Meridian Apodising Filter
Filters are critical in digital audio. Commonly they introduce distortion and harshness because of "pre-ringing". Early digital recordings suffer from harshness too, due to primitive filters. After painstaking research, Meridian developed a special filter that avoids pre-ringing, so it can be steeper, cleaning up the effects of early filters. The result: a better, cleaner sound from recordings old and new.
WE ARE THE PIONEERS OF HI-RES AUDIO
Uses a complex digital filter to double the rate of samples from the source to improve resolution of the finer details in the record. This means that even with a standard source such as CD using our upsampling technology we are able to significantly enhance the listening experience.

MHR [MERIDIAN HIGH RESOLUTION]
A patented Meridian audio format that combines high bandwidth, security and low jitter. MHR gets the highest possible sound quality in playback systems that use Meridian and enables the encoded transmission of PCM, MQA and DSD.
