  Seat Back Centre Loudspeakers

A loudspeaker module containg two midrange speakers and one tweeter in the rear of each seat back recreates the centre channel output for the rear seat passengers using Trifield processing technology. These seat back centre loudspeakers are included as part of the Meridian Signature Reference Sound System  reproduction.

  Meridian Cabin Correction

Meridian Cabin Correction technology optimises the audio system by measuring the acoustic time domain of the cabin and correcting the low frequency response preserving the timing and natural rhythm of a musical performance ensuring that bass notes to be reproduced cleanly.

  Digital Dither Shaping

Meridian Digital Dither Shaping is based upon psychoacoustic research to arrive at critically calculated noise shaping filters which provides an incredibly silent background to the recordings improving dynamic range and maximising musical detail.

Reviews

“So, how does the Meridian Signature Reference System sound? In a word, glorious. The quality of sound invited comparison not with other automotive audio, but with high-end home-audio systems.”
– Robert Harley,The Absolute Sound, Jan 2014.

“One of the best in-car audio experiences you’re ever likely to encounter, courtesy of Meridian.”
– Steve Fowler, Auto Express, Nov 2012.

“The 29-speaker sound system is exceptionally good, having been engineered by renowned sonic experts Meridian, and it’s possibly the best I have ever heard.”
– Kevin Hackett, The National, Nov 2012

“The stereo is quite simply the best I’ve ever encountered.”
– Jeremy Clarkson, The Sunday Times, Dec 2012

“The icing on the cake is the Meridian sound system, of which there are three available… it has to be the best car audio system we’ve ever experienced.”
– Eric Gallina, Pocket-lint, Oct 2012.

“Some surround systems can sound false with sonic gaps as different musical elements are sent to the different speakers. But using Meridian’s Trifield 3D tech, it sounds smoother, richer and more enveloping. It’s very clever and very enjoyable. As art director Darren Wilson said when he borrowed the car recently, you discover bits in music tracks you’ve never heard before.”
– Steve Fowler, Auto Express, Sep 2014.

“All I know is that Lars was attacking my head with his kit. In the 825 watt version In a very good way. The Meridian system is not an option. It is a must have. But now I really have to try the 1700 watt version because the 825 watt version is that darn good.”
– Brett Solomon, Technology Tell, Jul 2013.

“In the Range Rover , Range Rover Sport , and Jaguar F-type , we were treated to glorious audio reproduction, a balanced and rich sound that brought out the nuances in music. Even in the confined spaces of a car, and fed a variety of digital audio sources, the Meridian systems shine brightly.”
