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, hence "JL." Their first products were home speaker systems as well as home speaker kits.
Throughout JL Audio you will find people who love audio, take it very seriously and consider themselves fortunate to have a career in such a fun industry. The “audio nuts” found all over JL Audio’s facilities in Miramar, Florida and Phoenix, Arizona include recording engineers, former audio retailers, IASCA World Champions, installers, an incredibly experienced engineering staff, and people who are simply passionate about music and sharing this passion with others.
Supporting engineering efforts, is an outstanding group of dedicated production and logistics professionals who make sure that JL Audio's factories in the U.S. and around the world maintain JL's high quality standards.
