Meridian Audio System

Has anyone heard the Meridian audio systems in the F-Pace or any other Jaguars in general? Haven't gotten the chance to test them out but I'm hoping their adequate.

The F-Pace for example has a standard 11-speaker system which is 380 watts including subwoofer. The upgraded system offers 17-speakers and is 825 watts including subwoofer. That's a pretty big difference in power output through the audio and I'm really picky.

So... any experiences or heard anything anyone?

All we can do is read what people are saying of the Meridian Audio System in the F-Pace and so far they have been positive. SOmeone called it outstanding and it has the clearest Treble.

Well... that's warming to hear. I think I my just take a stop by a dealership and see what it sounds like on a test drive as well. Hopefully we can get something close to a 17 speaker upgrade!

17 speakers may be a bit much for the E-Pace depending on how much space the interior has. I think 11 speakers is more than enough.

Trying to think of how the setup would be...

mid-range and tweeter on the dash (4 speakers total)
mid-range on the doors (2 speakers)
mid range and tweeters on rear doors (for full effect, 4 speakers)
subwoofer in the rear?

If you really want the Meridian audio system with 17 speakers and it's not offered with the E-Pace, then you may need to cut into the body a bit. But a good layout would look similar to what the F-Pace has.

Adding speakers is always a really tedious task and requires a good bit of fab. I'd definitely not take that route at all as they're permanent modifications at that point. Replacing the existing speakers is the route I'd go, which of course majority of anyone else would do as well.

So the layout would look similar to what we're seeing on the F-Pace, but remove the rear midrange speakers, the bass and a few others.

Shouldn't be too hard so long as the aftermarket set fits perfectly into the factory speaker holes. Poorly fitted speakers can rattle and sound horrible.

That's why it's always recommended to go to an audio shop to get work like this done if you're not familiar with it. A lot of things to look at when considering buying replacement speakers other than just saying "Well, there is a 6" in there right now, I'll just buy any aftermarket 6" that has good reviews and put that in it's place"
