  Digital Signal Processing

Digital, active DSP crossovers were designed to distribute music to each speaker giving higher overall quality, less power use, and the performance of Meridian consumer loudspeakers.


Meridian’s exclusive Trifield technology blends the centre and surround channels seamlessly with the left and right channels to deliver a consistent, concert-like experience, optimised for all seating positions.

  Trifield 3D

Building upon the proven Trifield technology, Meridian Trifield 3D is a world’s first technology that adds dedicated height channels located in the roof lining to provide a realistic portrayal of image height to the musical performance. The Meridian™ 1,700W Signature Reference System also has dedicated seat back centre loudspeakers located in the front seats to provide rear seat passengers with their own centre channel reproduction.

50x50-backseat-centre  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 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.

“The XJ’s system had the resolution and transparency that many high-end home system aspire to. The tonal balance was spot-on, the midrange was clear and open, and the treble smooth and clean. But what really surprised me was the bottom-end performance. The bass was extremely deep and extended but, more importantly, exceptionally free from thickness, bloat, and that midbass tubbiness you often hear in car stereos.”

“As I stated earlier, the system in the XJ was the best car-audio system I’ve heard. But here’s the kicker; I was listening to the mid-level Meridian Surround System, not to the top-of-the-line Meridian Reference System.”
– Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound, Sep 2014.

“Meridian debuts in the range-topping XJ Ultimate with a superb 20-speaker system. What makes the Meridian special is its detail and control. Bass is a highlight: powerful, punchy and crisp. Verdict: *****”
– Steve Fowler, Auto Express, Jun 2012.

“Finally, there’s a new sound system from Meridian, and it’s a good ‘un. Jaguar has enlisted Meridian (they’re British, you know) to come up with a new sound system for the XJ that produces 825W through 15 audio channels sending sound to 20 speakers. What was actually most impressive to our untrained lug-holes was the quality of sound at low volume and the balance of sound that seemed the same wherever your head was in the cabin, with volume appearing relative to ambient noise too.”
