Audio Upgrade: 2016 Discovery Sport HSE

Hi newbie here, anyone know where the subwoofer is located? I have the audio upgrade package but can't find any documentations on where it's located. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks. I'll definitely check it out later tonight. It also seems like the U.S. model doesn't come with Meridian sound as the audio upgrade. I just found this out after delivery of vehicle.

In Canada, the sub is part of the upgraded system. Meridian is not available here...

Yes, Meridian system is not offered for North American market. However, my 2015 DS is probably one of the few US models that has the system. It took me a long time to track one down in my area.

Ok, so there's no subwoofer from the $800 audio upgrade package. I looked behind the second row seat and nothing. After scratching my head a bit...the 11th speaker is the center dash one, three on each of the front two doors, and two on each of the rear doors...which totals 11 speakers...

Anyone without the audio upgrade confirm if their care doesn't have the center dash speaker? Seems weird that one would be the additional, I've never been in a newer model car without a speaker in the center of the dash.

If there indeed isn't a subwoofer, than the system kicks out a lot of base without it.

Anyone with the audio upgrade on their DS 2016 want to chime in? The car sticker sheet states 11 speaks w/ subwoofer but I have yet to find it (Sub). The system does kick out a good amount of bass but as normal hearing levels but will distort if you turn up the volume a bit. Eventually I want to either replace the subwoofer or to use the inputs for an aftermarket setup (Sub + amp).

Weird. Was at the dealer today getting a wash and they had an SE on the floor. The window sticker had no added options except the climate package. Definitely had the center dash speaker. Unless it's just a grill with nothing under it?

Also weird is that the SE had all the other speakers. On the does that my car does. 11 total
