JL Audio is an American manufacturer of marine, home, and mobile audio products, but is best known for their subwoofers. Founded in 1975 by James Birch and Lucio Proni (hence the “JL”), the company whose humble beginnings were in a garage is now known as one of the pioneers of the car audio industry. Their first products were actually home speaker systems as well as home speaker "kits" that were sold in a small shop they opened called the Speaker Warehouse.  


Although their speakers gained notoriety for the great sound they produced, the owners felt there was a lack of high quality low frequency drivers that met their expectations.  Lucio Proni then decided they would make their own, and this catapulted JL Audio into the success story that is synonymous with their name.  Their first in-house subwoofer design was the model 8W2, which was refined in subsequent iterations and set new standards for subwoofer performance in the consumer electronics market. In 1987, the Speaker Warehouse began to design competition car audio systems with their products, and after winning multiple awards, JL became widely known in the US in the years following.  In 1991, JL Audio was able to exhibit its equipment at the Consumer Electronics Show for the first time, and the rest is history.


In 2000, JL Audio launched its first electronics products, the Slash series amplifiers (which are so popular, they are still made today). These amplifiers went on to become among the best-selling mobile audio amplifiers on the market, and coupled with JL’s amazing line of subwoofer products, brought mobile audio performance to a whole new level.  If you want to dominate any car audio competition, or simply roll with some of the best sounding equipment there is, we invite you to audition JL Audio.  We have been a JL dealer since the early 90s, have always been impressed with their products, and are certain that you will be as well.
