Meridian is looking to claim more of the lucrative custom install market with its new in-wall speaker ranges. The brand’s 200 Series are in-ceiling designs while the 300 Series comprise in-wall /flush-mount and on-wall systems, which can be supplied either passive or active analogue, driven by the Meridian G41 Powered Crossover/Amplifier.
The 200 Series is a 2-way design with an 8-inch bass driver, pivoting tweeter and optional crossover, and is suitable for either surface or flush mounting.
The 300 Series consists of three slimline options: in-wall (surface grille), flush-mount (completely hidden) and on-wall applications, and feature 6.5-inch bass drivers and a wide-dispersion ribbon tweeter. Units are supplied with a built-in passive crossover or with the appropriate G41 active crossover module.
The 320 includes a single bass driver and tweeter; the 330 adds an 8-inch Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR); and the 350 features two bass drivers and two ABRs.
The enclosure in each case is extremely slim and narrow, fitting into the depth of a partition and between studs in in-wall configurations, the width is only 12-inch at the widest point.
The on-wall variants will be finished in natural wood with white grilles. In-wall and flush-mount models are available now; on-walls will follow in November. Prices range from 182 pounds for the in-ceiling models to 2,235 pounds for the P350f.
