Applications
To connect a pair of DSP3200s and a DSW to
a Meridian Audio Core 200
• Connect the upper SpeakerLink output on the Audio Core
200 to the SpeakerLink input of the DSW subwoofer, using a
Meridian SpeakerLink lead.
The DSW is ideal in combination with a pair of DSP3200 or
DSP3300 loudspeakers to create a compact Audio Core 200
based system.
• Connect the SpeakerLink output from the DSW subwoofer to
the Slave DSP3200, using a Meridian SpeakerLink lead.
• Set the Channel selector to the L/C position on the left
speaker, to the R position on the right speaker, and to the
1+2 position on the DSW subwoofer.
• Connect the lower SpeakerLink output on the Audio Core
200 to the SpeakerLink input of the Master DSP3200, using
a Meridian SpeakerLink lead.

To use a DSW as the subwoofer in a Meridian
Digital Theatre
The DSW is ideal as the subwoofer in a Meridian Digital
Theatre, in combination with DSP3200 or DSP3300 front and
rear loudspeakers and a DSP3300 centre speaker. The system
can be controlled by a Meridian Digital Surround Controller such
as the G68. The following diagram shows how to connect the
speakers using “home run” wiring.
• Connect the L+R SpeakerLink output on the lower row of
the G68 to the Master digital speaker (here the front left
speaker), using a Meridian SpeakerLink lead.
• Connect the appropriate SpeakerLink outputs on the G68
to each of the remaining speakers and the subwoofer, using
Meridian SpeakerLink leads.
• Set the Channel selector on the front and rear left speakers
to the L/C position, and on the front and rear right speakers
to the R position.
• Set the Channel selector on the centre speaker to the L/C
position, and on the DSW subwoofer to the 2 position.
Alternatively you can connect the speakers using “daisy chain”
wiring: connect the front and rear L speakers to the G68,
and then link each pair of speakers together by connecting
the output from the L speaker to the input of the R speaker.
Likewise connect the centre speaker to the G68, and then
link the output from the centre speaker to the input of the
subwoofer.
Note that if the system includes DSP loudspeakers with
displays, such as the DSP5200, one of them must be set up as
the master in the system.
