A trio of Meridian Audio systems are to be offered on the latest Range Rover, marking a ten year partnership between the brands. The Meridian Signature System, Meridian 3D Surround Sound and Meridian Sound System options will be joined by a unique Tailgate Event Suite that extends musical enjoyment outside the vehicle.

The 35 loudspeaker Signature Sound System includes new headrest speakers for the first time. These generate an immersive surround sound experience, that completely envelops the passenger. New height speakers in rows 1 and 2 of the vehicle complement the surround speakers, creating natural immersion with three-dimensional spaciousness alongside new headrest and seat back speakers for rear passengers.

The 3D Surround Sound option features 19 loudspeakers, including all-new height speakers in the front of the vehicle alongside rear surround speakers.

The 15 loudspeaker Sound System includes a centre channel (tweeter and midrange combination) plus a tweeter, midrange and woofer in each door which together create an authentic audio experience for all passengers.

The new Tailgate Experience can be added to both the 3D Surround Sound and Signature options, bringing an additional four speakers into the mix. These are designed to provide high quality sound from the new Range Rover when the vehicle is stationary, or being used for picnics or other outdoor pursuits. Additional speakers within the Tailgate Event Suite are specially tuned to help deliver an optimal performance and listening experience outside the vehicle.

Each Meridian solution features the company’s proprietary digital signal processing technologies: Digital Precision provides signal conditioning and optimal clarity and detail, while Re-Q Cabin Correction intelligently optimises the audio system to the precise acoustics of the vehicle.

Meridian Trifield (all systems) and Trifield 3D technology (3D Surround Sound and Signature options only) are used to deliver an enveloping experience and defined soundstage for all occupants.

“For more than ten years, Meridian has partnered with Jaguar Land Rover to push the boundaries of audio engineering in luxury and high-performance vehicles. We’ve used all that experience and expertise to create a level of audio performance in the new Range Rover that’s simply exceptional,” says Meridian’s CEO, John Buchanan. “Together we are creating a new audio benchmark with Range Rover, combining incredible audio performance with brilliant user experiences, including loudspeakers in the headrests and the innovative and amazing Tailgate Event Suite.”

He adds: “These new features, technologies and audio experiences are borne from our years of research and development alongside our psychoacoustics know-how. The launch of the new Range Rover and its high-performance audio systems is a great way to mark 10 years of partnership between two leaders of British engineering.”
