JL Audio

Great audio isn’t just our mission. It is our passion.

JL Audio is an independent, privately-held U.S. company active in the Home, Mobile, Powersports and Marine Audio markets. They focus on delivering unique engineering, superior quality and high-performance audio to our customers around the world. Behind all their efforts is a strong belief that great audio has real value, and that their customers can ‘tell the difference’.

Throughout JL Audio you will find people who love audio, take it very seriously and consider themselves fortunate to have a career in such an enjoyable field. True “audio nuts” can be found around every corner of JL Audio’s facilities in Miramar, Florida and Phoenix, Arizona. They include former audio retailers, IASCA World Champions, installers, recording engineers, and an engineering staff with vast experience in professional, car and home audio product design.

Supporting their engineering efforts is an outstanding group of dedicated production and logistics professionals who make sure that JL Audio’s factories around the world, and here in the U.S., maintain high quality standards. Yes, you read that last part correctly… JL Audio builds many of their speakers right here in the U.S.A. Since most of their premium loudspeakers incorporate proprietary, patented technologies that require unique assembly techniques, they find that it is best to build them where they can directly control these critical processes. Today, all of their premium subwoofer drivers and all of their marine speakers are built in-house, as are most of their Enclosed Subwoofer Systems and all their Stealthbox® products.

Space doesn’t permit mentioning all the talented people who work at JL Audio, but at Auto Styles we can share that their enthusiasm for great audio manifests itself in every detail of their products and their business approach and ours.

At Auto Styles we believe you will hear this passion every time you listen to a JL Audio product.

The Flagship Subwoofer “The W7 Anniversary Edition”

In recent years, the W7 platform has also become a reference standard in the high-end home audio world. Variants of the W7 are used in our ultra-premium Fathom® and Gotham® powered home subwoofers, which have received top ratings and recommendations from the world’s leading reviewers and are in daily use at some of the world’s top recording and mastering studios.

A W7’s unique proposition is its ability to deliver extreme output, accurate dynamics and sublime sound quality…all at the same time. The keys to these performance capabilities lie at the very core of loudspeaker design, where electromagnetic and mechanical behavior combine in fiendishly complex ways. JL Audio’s intense research into these behaviors allows us to optimize W7 motor and suspension systems to faithfully reproduce every bass detail with unparalleled linearity and accuracy. Eight U.S. Patents have been issued for motor, suspension and assembly technologies used in the W7’s.

Every W7 subwoofer is built to exacting quality standards in JL’s Miramar, Florida factory, with globally sourced components. Each of the four models is a completely original design from surround to back-plate (even the bolts and screws used in assembly have been purpose-designed and manufactured to JL specifications).

A bit obsessive, perhaps, but so is the quest for the ultimate in audio reproduction…a goal that JL Audio pursues with passion, through research and without compromise.

W7AE “10th Anniversary Edition”:
2011 marked the tenth anniversary of the flagship automotive subwoofer drivers. To commemorate the occasion, each W7 model is now only offered in special “Anniversary Edition” (AE) trim, with a satin black frame finish, a bright-anodized trim ring and special badging. The original silver-framed W7 drivers have been discontinued now a few years.


JL Audio has tackled the challenges of automotive amplifier design with the same commitment to engineering and innovative thinking that we apply to their speaker designs. For JL, it isn’t enough to repackage circuits and technologies that have been around for decades… their customers expect more.

From the new affordable sleek and powerful, RD amplifiers which deliver outstanding amplifier performance and versatility at an unprecedented value, the lineup offers rock-solid performance with well-proven Class D and Linear amplifier technologies, while the cutting-edge HD and XD amplifiers finally deliver on the promise of full-range switching amplifiers, combining outstanding efficiency, small size and amazing sonic qualities. The legendary Slash-Series that started it all is also available and features our unique R.I.P.S. power supply and patented output technologies.

Whichever JL Audio amplifier you choose, you are getting a serious product designed to make great audio in your vehicle.


Liberate your soundtrack and unleash its potential!
JL AUDIO offers a complete line of advanced digital signal processors designed to improve the quality of your audio experience.

Why do you need a FiX™?
Great audio begins with a flat, full-range stereo signal from its source. Most factory-installed car audio systems are designed with altered audio outputs to compensate for factory speaker quality and placement. In many cases, the only available audio signals are chopped into different frequency ranges, making the integration of quality amplifiers and speakers even tougher.

What does FiX™ do?
In a nutshell, FiX OEM Integration DSPs automatically level match, time-correct, reconstruct and re-equalize factory audio signals, giving you clean, flat, full-range audio signals to build your new audio system around.

Then what?
The TwK System Tuning DSPs take your sound to the next level. Equipped with a powerful, 24-bit digital signal processor, TwK processors include flexible input/output options, 80 total bands of equalization, channel delays and powerful mixing tools that allow you to precisely adjust and fine-tune your new audio system. Using the TüN 2.0 Software Interface, connected via PC, tuning adjustments are easily made, for all system types, from basic to complex.

Whether you are upgrading a factory audio system or building the system of your dreams, our OEM Integration and System Tuning DSPs are the right tools to achieve world-class sound.

Marine Sound Goes High-End.

You will find our speakers in the world’s finest boats… and in the best sounding ones, too!

To build the world’s finest marine speakers, all materials, assemblies and completed systems are tested using advanced salt-fog and UV test equipment, which simulate years of exposure to the elements. JL Audio’s environmental longevity standards far exceed typical industry standards to ensure years of consistent performance in your boat.

Engineering, environmental testing and assembly all take place in our Miramar, Florida facility, ensuring consistent process control and component part quality.

That’s why more and more boat builders and refitters are recommending JL Audio marine speakers.
