In 1975, James Birch and Lucio Proni started a home speaker kit company called JL Audio. A little over a decade later, in partnership with a retail store, JL Audio started manufacturing car audio speakers and subwoofers. Thirty-five years later, JL has become one of the most respected names in the mobile and home entertainment industry, and Ralph’s Radio in Vancouver and Victoria is proud to add this prestigious brand as a solution partner.
Why JL Audio Is an Important Partner at Ralph’s Radio
With 71 years of experience in electronics, choosing the right brands for our clients is an integral part of how we deliver world-class solutions to our clients. New and unique brands approach us almost every week, and while we love their enthusiasm, we have strict guidelines for choosing the products we sell. In short, we not only vet the performance and value of each radio, speaker, amplifier or subwoofer we offer, but we challenge their support staff to ensure that we have the training and assistance we need to help our clients get the most from each installation. Our education enables us to understand the features and benefits of each product so that our staff knows when to suggest them and how to optimize their performance.
JL Audio Car Audio Products
For the last few decades, car audio products have been the primary focus of the JL Audio team. The brand currently has eight series of subwoofers, five series of speakers, seven series of amplifiers, seven subwoofer enclosure series and an impressive offering of signal processors, Bluetooth receivers and installation accessories. We don’t stock every product from every category, but we offer an impressive selection.
JL Audio is known best for its subwoofers and amplifiers. From the monster W7 and W6 series to the flexibility of the shallow-mount TW3 and TW5 drivers, JL subwoofers are a vital part of our bass upgrade solutions. JL speakers are available in every conceivable size from 3.5-inch coaxial upgrades to high-power 6×9’s and high-performance component speaker sets.
All the subwoofers and speakers in the world are of no benefit without an amplifier that lets them perform. We stock most models in the affordable JD series, the high-performance XD series and the class-leading HD offerings. Our team can help you choose an amp that delivers the power you need at a price point that works with your budget.
World-Class Marine Entertainment
In 2005, JL Audio started manufacturing marine entertainment products. The company quickly distinguished itself as a benchmark with products like 7.7-inch coaxial speakers and genuine water-, UV- and salt-resistant solutions. It didn’t take long for boat manufacturers to realize the value of using speakers and amplifiers that sound great and can stand the test of time.
The Ralph’s Radio team is involved in a lot of marine audio system upgrades. Our mobile installers are regulars at all the marinas in the Vancouver and Victoria area. Providing high-performance, ultra-reliable upgrades is a key factor in why we’ve added JL Audio products.
JL’s M3 speakers offer impressive performance that exceeds expectations. For those who need the most output with excellent clarity and detail, M6 speakers and subwoofer are a natural choice. JL just launched the M7 series of subwoofers. With almost 1.5 inches of excursion capability and 600 watts of power handling, there’s no line of marine subwoofers that competes.

The addition of JL Audio to the Ralph’s Radio family marks a significant change in our ability to deliver car, marine and powersport audio upgrades that offer industry-leading reliability and performance.
