Four distinct car amplifiers announced, packed with proprietary
JL Audio technology, at entry-level pricing.

Miramar, FL – February 13, 2020 – JL Audio, an innovator in high-performance automotive audio solutions, introduces the JD Series car audio amplifier line. Four models are being announced for 2020, including three monoblock subwoofer amplifiers and a four-channel full-range amplifier. All models are available for purchase through JL Audio’s network of specialty car audio retailers or on

JL Audio Vice President Electronic Engineering, Dr. Stephen Leigh said: " The JD amps deliver tremendous value, combining JL Audio’s NexD™ Class-D technology, advanced auto turn-on features, and a very handy clipping indicator for accurate level setting. These are technologies never before offered at these price points.”

JD amplifiers also include JL Audio's dual-range differential-balanced technology, for superior noise rejection and excellent compatibility with a wide range of input signal voltages. Automatic turn-on is another welcome feature, selectable between Signal Sensing and DC Offset Sensing modes. LED clipping indicator rings surround each input level potentiometer. With the use of a CD or an audio file with a full-scale sine wave, installers can use these LED indicators to quickly establish the correct input sensitivity setting, without the need for additional test equipment.

A sleek new industrial design with molded end caps and an aluminum extruded chassis give the JD’s a tough, purposeful look. Power indicator and protection LED indicators shine from behind a simple black logo bar on the top surface of the amplifier. Installers are sure to appreciate thoughtful ergonomics and wire management considerations in the end cap designs, as well as beefy, well-protected power and speaker connectors.

JL Audio VP-Marketing, Manville Smith said: “The outgoing JX amplifiers were a massive success at these price points. With the additional features and performance added to the new JD’s, we predict these will be an even bigger hit with car audio enthusiasts looking for JL Audio performance at a very nice price.”

The new JD Amplifiers are currently shipping to dealers in the USA.
