JL Audio is a brand that started with subwoofers, and has expanded into full range speakers, amplifiers, marine audio, and even home audio. Many of their products are designed and built in the USA! Some of their products like the W6 and W7 lines of subwoofers are downright legendary. We’re happy to have chosen them as a partner and to be able to offer such a high performance car and marine audio product to the Richmond, Virginia area.
At Extreme Audio in Mechanicsville, Virginia, we focus on the car audio and marine audio markets. When you come to our facility you will find the whole line of products offered by JL Audio:
JL Audio has tackled the challenges of automotive amplifier design with the same commitment to engineering and innovative thinking that they apply to our speaker designs. The affordable JX 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 the unique R.I.P.S. power supply and patented output technologies.
With each generation of subwoofer drivers, JL Audio has achieved significant breakthroughs in design and performance. From the original 8W2, to the groundbreaking W1 and W6 subwoofers of the 1990’s and on to the astonishing W7, W6v3 and TW5v2 subwoofers in the last decade, the focus has always been on sound quality and real-world performance capabilities… on redefining the state-of-the-art for low-frequency reproduction.
Evolution® is serious product, engineered by JL Audio to meet the demands of the toughest acoustic and environmental conditions in the high-fidelity world. Evolution® is not about cute buzzwords or the exotic material of the month… it’s all about making your music come alive with realism and excitement.
Utilizing our extensive testing and development resources, each of the Evolution® lines has been optimized to reproduce your music with lifelike balance, effortless dynamics and smooth response in the car. Particular emphasis has been placed on off-axis response and dynamic stability which, might not be that important during a five-minute evaluation on a demo board, but it makes all the difference when installed in your car.
There are many less expensive products out there, and there are quite a few that are more expensive… So, do your homework and listen carefully, because no other piece of equipment makes a bigger difference in the sound of your system than your component speakers.
The problem with subwoofers in the car is that they typically take up a lot of room, which can be a big problem if you want to keep your vehicle’s comfort and utility intact. JL Audio’s Stealthbox® subwoofer systems solve this problem once and for all, while delivering a level of sub-bass performance that is way ahead of the curve. And, as the name implies, no one will ever know it’s there.
JL Audio has tackled the challenges of marine amplifier design with the same commitment to engineering and innovative thinking that they apply to our speaker designs. JL Audio’s cutting-edge M and MHD marine amplifiers deliver the benefits of full-range switching technology. In addition to world class sonic quality, they offer outstanding efficiency, which results in small size and less current draw per watt. Each series offers a wide range of models to fit the needs of any serious marine audio installation.
JL Audio marine loudspeaker systems and components are specifically designed and tuned for an open-air boating environment, ensuring phenomenal fidelity at cruising speed or while anchored at your favorite swimming spot. They have designed their products to sound and look great for a long time. Significant investments in salt-fog and ultraviolet test equipment have paid off with remarkable advances in materials to combat the harsh elements. They test every part of the speaker, not just the grille, to withstand corrosion and UV tests that far exceed industry standards. They also build our speakers with extreme care and precision in our Miramar, Florida, USA factory to ensure that our high quality standards are maintained.
These gorgeous enclosed speaker systems are ideal for mounting onto wakeboard towers or other tubular structures on a boat. ETXv2 systems are offered with the maximum-performance, M-Series 7.7-inch coaxial tower speakers. Specifically tuned for tower enclosure applications, these coaxial drivers deliver clean, loud audio that can be heard well beyond the boat when mounted up high. For lower power applications, you can choose a version with the MX-Series 7.7-inch coaxial. The enclosures are injection-molded from marine-grade polymer materials and feature a decorative, aluminum JL Audio logo cap on the end opposite the speaker.
Do you really need a subwoofer in a boat? The short answer is: “Absolutely!”. In fact, you need it more than in any other audio environment.
A running powerboat produces a huge amount of low frequency noise, which is impossible for small full-range speakers to overcome. Adding a subwoofer not only gives you better low-frequency output to overcome that noise, but it also makes your main speakers sound cleaner and louder by not forcing them to do extra work in the low-frequency department.
Now that we’ve answered that question, you will be happy to know that JL Audio’s marine subwoofers deliver the kind of bass that has made JL Audio famous in the automotive and home theater sound arenas. This is bass that will impress you, not only with its sheer level, but even more with its smoothness, balance and precision.
The staff at Extreme Audio is factory trained in all things JL Audio! They stock a wide selection and they know how to install all of it the right way the first time. As an added bonus, you can rest assured that you are making your purchase from 1 of the very best shops in all of North America: Extreme Audio was named the 2013 Mobile Electronics Retailer of the Year.
So there you have it. JL Audio’s commitment to supplying quality products and Extreme Audio’s dedication to be the best of their kind…. ANYWHERE. That sounds like a shop you would want working on your vehicle or boat, doesn’t it?
