Meridian has previewed their 3D in-car surround system built in the Jaguar C-X17. Meridian have developed and designed their innovative car audio system in close conjunction with Jaguar’s C-X17’s interior to provide a “unique harmonic space”.
The 28 loudspeaker system presents innovative loudspeaker locations within the vehicle cabin such as the integration of loudspeakers into the A & B pillars. The Meridian’s subwoofer “force cancelling” technology has been gem-set within the rear centre tunnel; ultimately the raised loudspeakers have been located in the top of the head restraints to deliver the correct perception of image height.
“The all-new sonic architecture allows Meridian’s DSP technology to further exploit its full capabilities of delivering authentic, evocative and believable sound for everyone. A jewel of sound specifically created for the Jaguar C-X17.” Graham Landick, Meridian Automotive Programme Manager.
“The Meridian audio system for the C-X17 is an audio statement. Inspired by the design and performance of Meridian home systems and technologies, this system represents the future of in-car 3D surround. It is very satisfying to see two great British brands blend together their design languages and technologies to produce something unique.” Bob Stuart, Meridian Co-founder and Chief Technical Officer.
