JL Audio YouTube Training Videos
JL Audio’s Ed Meenan wants everyone to take advantage of these superb Training Videos, which are ideal for both education and social media promotion:
“Two Subs Standard” one of Doug’s most successful initiatives has been advocacy of deploying two subwoofers instead of one, even if the customer is “Down-sold” to two less expensive subs, as opposed to one higher-priced model. Customers will invariable step themselves back up to the better model. The punchline: Let’s sell twice as many subs!
HRS Helix “Footer” Is A High-End Bargain!
The HRS Helix is designed to significantly reduce chassis noise from inside the components and from the impact of air-borne energy in the room. The Helix is designed specifically for use with chassis that have stiffer (plate and billet) metal construction and yields targeted performance improvements when used in conjunction with HRS Isolation Bases. Its low-profile design provides excellent performance gains while preserving the original look of the component. The HRS Helix uses one of the custom materials used in our reference level Vortex products to present rapid transfer of energy and life like musical dynamics. It yields an exceptional performance value when combined with the HRS E1 and R3X Isolation Bases.
