There are thousands of car audio brands worldwide and only a few stand out. These are the brands that have stood the test of time in terms of quality, reliability and innovation. Today let’s focus on some of our top brands that have been a household name in the car audio industry.

 

KICKER

Steve Irby founded the company back in 1973 in a small garage in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Love of music drove him to invent the mobile-stereo enclosure market that was the first full-frequency range speaker box designed for cars and trucks. From this day, Kicker went on to produce their popular L7, CompQ, Solo-Baric L7S, CompVX, CompR, CompRT, CompVR, CompVT, CompC and Comp Subwoofers. At the same time, they have developed a number of sub-brands in mobile audio and lifestyle products. Some of them are: VSS which are Vehicle-Specific Solutions for Doge, GM and Ford vehicles. Klock Werks are Kicker products for motorcycles. Kicker has also diversified in lifestyle entertainment such as the wireless outdoor speaker, Bullfrog.

JL AUDIO

The company was started by Jim Birch and Lucio Proni hence the name “JL”. It all began in the mid-1970’s when these two started to tinker with component speakers and designed home-made loudspeakers. First, they started selling these to their friends and eventually, they found themselves selling at a local weekend flea-market.

JL’s first car subwoofer was the 8W2 which is an 8-inch woofer designed to work perfectly on a ported enclosure. It went on to produce the classic PowerWedge series using this 8-inch woofer and continued to use the 10” and 12” variants.

Throughout the years, JL has been a household name in the car audio industry and their name is synonymous to Stealthbox, W3, W7, TW3 and a whole lot more.
