Meridian DSP5500 Digital Loudspeaker System
The DSP5500 is a single box DSP loudspeaker, designed to provide performance similar to the highly popular DSP6000. This new model is a front facing format that can be effectively built into system cabinets DSP functions are provided to correct the frequency response in a number of locations. A unique removable wood and steel side panel arrangement allows for easy colour changes or custom finishes. The side panels are bolted in place; in addition to providing magnetic shielding, the resulting solid, stiff cabinet provides massive acoustic damping, giving the speaker remarkable mid range transparency.
