Using the first letters of each of their first names, James Birch and Lucio Proni launched the American JL Audio in 1975, initially focusing on manufacturing home speaker systems as well as home speaker "kits."
Since their launch over 40 years ago, JL Audio has seen some dynamic changes in the audio and Hi-Fi industry - and have adapted to meet new customer needs and wants very successfully. Aside from being one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-end subwoofers, they are also famous for their marine, home, and mobile audio products - as well as being one of the pioneers of the car audio industry.
If you've ever heard a great subwoofer that's been well-integrated into an audio system, you understand the immense difference it can make. Aside from providing bass extension to your system, the other major benefit is the transformation that occurs in the main speakers as they are free to open up for improved dynamics, superior imaging and more low-level detail.
JL Audio sub drivers and amplifier designs are precisely optimized to deliver the best sound experience possible in their given environment. for their intended physical envelopes and design goals. The components and products are fanatically engineered and precision-built to the highest quality standard in their Miramar, Florida factory, with no detail overlooked.
