Founded in 1970 by Jim Birch and Lucio Peroni, JL Audio specializes exclusively in home subwoofers that are unique in their ability to combine clarity and detail with incredible power output. Due to the tremendous pressure generated inside a subwoofer, most suffer from reliability issues. Yet, JL Audio's subwoofers are world renowned for their rock solid reliability. For one thing, they never use off-the-shelf parts; instead, they engineer and manufacture their own woofers, amplifiers, and cabinets in their state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Miramar, Florida and Phoenix, Arizona. The subwoofers, amplifiers, and cabinets created in these facilities show a fanatical attention to detail and create a sound that is not only dependable, but beautiful. It is no wonder that pride of ownership is common among JL Audio owners.
