About JL Audio

Company History

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. We focus on delivering unique engineering, superior quality and high-performance audio to our customers around the world. Behind all our efforts is a strong belief that great audio has real value, and that our 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 our 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 our high quality standards. Yes, you read that last part correctly... we build many of our speakers right here in the U.S.A. Since most of our premium loudspeakers incorporate proprietary, patented technologies that require unique assembly techniques, we find that it is best to build them where we can directly control these critical processes. Today, all of our premium subwoofer drivers and all of our marine speakers are built in-house, as are most of our Enclosed Subwoofer Systems and all our Stealthbox® products.

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

I believe you will hear this passion every time you listen to a JL Audio product.
