The cabinet vent s through a floorlevel wide area coupling slot; this configuration along with the active and DSP correction maintains smooth powerful bass in the room down to 30Hz with very low mid range colouration.
The mid-range is mounted in a separate enclosure and uses a custom 160mm polypropylene driver. The tweeter is the Meridian 25mm aluminum dome, silver wire tweeter used in all the DSP loudspeakers. Each of the four drive units has its own 75W power amplifier.

I think they would be gorgeous speakers, surprised some of the Meridian crew on here haven't jumped at these.

Firstly they sound great - certainly way, way better than you could expect for the asking price.

The price is mostly due to the fact that Meridian tends to be a closed system. For example these speakers also include the amplification and DAC's. Most people playing in this space already have amps, DAC's and cables that they are fond of. Also while Meridian speakers can be used in environments other than their own they work best when used with other Meridian components. The simplest way to achieve this with these speakers would be to also incorporate a Meridian 218 - or to source suitable S/Hand Meridian components.

Having said that these are still a bargain waiting for the right owner.

Thank you for the info, i have just been googling and reading lots on them for the past hour.

 

From what I have read and learned they will definitely appeal to someone who would like a turn key solution with not many cables to plug in and worry about.

 

Always great to see and learn about different products, i never knew they existed until today (awesome) ALWTS

      up for sale are my beautiful, wonderful sounding Proac Response D2’s.
       
      If you haven’t heard these before you are welcome to have a listen. A beautifully balanced speaker , extraordinary high frequencies,  midrange to die for, bass that goes below 40hz..
       
      I’m in my third mid life crisis (boats, cars, speakers in that order) I have to confess a long term intimate relationship with the most seductive of speakers - Maggies. Maggie’s just keep calling me back with their siren call, their boxless, holographic imaging. Don’t get me wrong, the Proac‘S are no slouches sounding as boxless as a box speaker can sound - if you get my drift.

      there you are, it all about the passion.
       
      talk to me if you are interested.
       
      i know these are not the best images but they are best I’ve got at the moment. I can borrow a decent camera and possibly even take decent images, don’t count on it I apparently don’t have an artistic bone in my body
       
      ps/- photos taken in the old family room, my new DEDICATED room is so much nicer. 😁
       
      thanks
