JL Audio Attending KnowledgeFest Dallas and Empowering 12-Volt Industry with Best Practices for Selling and Installing Marine Audio Systems


Dallas, Texas and Miramar, Florida, August 7, 2019 – JL Audio, an innovator in high-end audio solutions, today announced it will be attending the KnowledgeFest 2019 event in Dallas, reinforcing its commitment to supporting the Mobile Electronics Association (MEA) and its mission to inform, educate and empower retailers.

Returning as a Diamond Partner for 2019, JL Audio will have a 400 square-foot booth at the Dallas event, where it will be previewing and training the industry on upcoming marine-specific products, as well as showcasing its current marine audio solutions, including the:

  • M3 series: high-performance marine loudspeakers, subwoofers and tower speakers with optional RGB illumination;
  • M6 series: premium, high-performance marine loudspeakers, subwoofers, and tower speakers with Transflective RGB illumination;
  • And, MediaMaster source units.

“Marine is a hot market segment that offers a lot of exciting growth opportunities for retailers and dealers. But, selling and installing marine products requires retailers and dealers to have a thorough understanding of how vehicles and vessels differ acoustically,” said Bryatt Fischer, Director of Marketing for JL Audio. “KnowledgeFest events provide us with an exciting opportunity to showcase our latest marine-specific products, as well as offer attendees an advanced look and hands-on sales and installation training for upcoming products.”

In addition to its exciting marine product line, JL Audio will also showcase its powerful VXi series of compact DSP automotive amplifiers designed to give installers unprecedented tuning power and flexibility.

The company will be hosting multiple training sessions at KnowledgeFest Dallas designed to empower attendees with advanced knowledge on designing and configuring automotive and marine audio systems to achieve maximum audio performance.

Typically, when DSP system tuning is discussed only two of the three pillars are mentioned; Level and Frequency response.  Leaving ‘Time’ only briefly touched on, because time is difficult to measure and analyze.
