JLR, Meridian Team Up to Deliver High-Performance Audio for EVs

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) and Meridian Audio, a renowned British audio company, have extended their long-standing partnership to develop cutting-edge sound systems specifically designed for JLR’s next generation of electric vehicles (EVs).

This exciting collaboration promises an immersive and luxurious in-car audio experience for future JLR drivers.

A History of Collaboration

The partnership between JLR and Meridian began in 2010, and over the past decade, they’ve successfully produced exceptional audio systems for all JLR vehicles, including the iconic Range Rover, Defender, Discovery, and Jaguar models.

This renewed agreement takes their collaboration a step further by enabling even closer integration between the two companies.

Meridian’s audio specialists will now be involved in the design phase at a much earlier stage, ensuring that the cabins of future JLR electric vehicles are meticulously crafted to deliver optimal sound quality.

Electrification Breeds Opportunity

The shift towards electric vehicles presents a unique opportunity for JLR and Meridian to develop innovative audio solutions. Unlike traditional gasoline-powered engines, electric vehicles offer a quieter cabin environment, creating a perfect canvas for Meridian’s immersive audio technologies to truly shine.

A Look Ahead

The two companies are already working on pioneering audio technology that will be the first of its kind in the automotive industry. While details remain under wraps, this is a promising sign for audiophiles and JLR fans alike.

Beyond the Basics

JLR’s current crown jewel, the Meridian Signature Sound System found in Range Rover models, exemplifies the success of this collaboration. This powerful 1600W system boasts 35 speakers, including speakers embedded in the headrests, for a truly surround-sound experience.

In addition to delivering exceptional sound quality, the Meridian system seamlessly integrates with JLR’s advanced noise cancellation technology to create an unparalleled sense of tranquility within the cabin. This translates to a more enjoyable and relaxing ride, even on extended journeys.

Innovation on the Horizon

The partnership between JLR and Meridian extends beyond traditional in-car audio. One such example is the innovative Range Rover Tailgate Event Suite, which features an additional four speakers specifically designed to enhance the entertainment experience when the tailgate is deployed, perfect for social gatherings.

This renewed collaboration between JLR and Meridian promises a future filled with groundbreaking audio technology specifically tailored for the electric vehicle revolution.

With a focus on immersive sound, luxurious comfort, and innovative features, JLR and Meridian are poised to set the standard for in-car audio experiences.
