The DSW.2 provides deep and impactful bass that will play its part perfectly in a two-channel or complete surround-sound set-up made up of any of our Digital Active loudspeakers.

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. The SpeakerLink and mains power connecting cables attach on the underside of the cabinet, allowing for discreet installations.

Performance Series


The DSW.2 Digital Active Subwoofer can integrate seamlessly into many installations that include Meridian loudspeakers. Whether used on its own or in multiples, it delivers deep, room-filling bass with control and accuracy. A long-throw, 12" drive-unit with a massive motor system, paired with a highly-efficient, Class-D amplifier, means that the DSW.2 is capable of delivering high levels of sound pressure with precision. Its unique and extremely strong cabinet has been specifically tailored to the drive-unit to eliminate vibrations and allow the loudspeaker to reproduce music accurately at high power levels. These features, combined with its elegant form-factor and Meridian's suite of on-board technologies, make the DSW.2 the perfect subwoofer in any Meridian system.

Bespoke Signal Mapping

Meridian Bespoke Signal Mapping utilises digital signal processing to apply tailored crossover filters that are designed specifically for each configuration of drive units within a loudspeaker.

E3 Bass

Meridian E3 Bass uses specifically designed filters to expand, extend and enhance the low-frequency response of the loudspeaker.


FFA (Full Frequency Alignment) is a combination of digital filters and delays to correct the group-delay of a loudspeaker. It ensures that all frequencies reach the listener's ear at the same time.

Resonance Control

Meridian Resonance Control uses the dimensions of the room in order to compensate for the primary modal resonances that are especially exacerbated by loudspeakers with downward firing speakers, or by in-wall mounted loudspeakers.

Pro-Active Bass

Meridian Pro-Active Bass protects the bass drivers from over-excursion, ensuring maximum bass output without damaging the drive units.


Meridian Q-Sync deploys Meridian's multiple “First In, First Out” buffering system which minimises jitter, ensuring perfect timing and improved clarity.

True Time

True Time is Meridian's proprietary Apodising Filter that avoids pre-ringing and cleans up the effects of early filters, converting pre-echo to post-echo.

True Link

Meridian True Link is an encryption method for transferring high-definition digital audio over SPDIF connections. It allows secure movement of digital audio whilst ensuring that the SPDIF clock signal can be transmitted with minimum degradation.

Digital Precision

Meridian Digital Precision maximises the signal-to-noise ratio of the digital audio, ensuring the finest details of every song are retained.

The Science Of Emotion

Meridian’s incredible innovations can transport the listener to the emotions of a live performance.
