JL Audio Logo


Independent, Privately Owned U.S. Company

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 customers around the world. Behind all of their efforts is a strong belief that great audio has real value, and that customers can ‘tell the difference’.

JL Audio was founded in 1975 by James Birch and Lucio Proni. They used the first letter of each of their names, to form a company name and their first products were home speaker systems and kits.

Passion For Audio

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.

Many JL Audio speakers are made right here in the U.S.A. Since most of their premium loudspeakers incorporate proprietary, patented technologies that require unique assembly techniques, JL Audio decided it was best to build them where they could directly control these critical processes. Today, all of premium JL Audio subwoofer drivers and all marine speakers are built in-house with global components, as are most Enclosed Subwoofer Systems and all Stealthbox® products.
