JL Audio announced the affordable JX500/1D 500-watt monoblock, Class D car amplifier that is 43% smaller without sacrificing power or performance of the prior JX500/1 amplifier.
“By shifting the JX500/1D from traditional Class A/B technology to the more efficient Class D design, we were able to significantly reduce the size of the amplifier, while still delivering outstanding power and fidelity,” said Manville Smith, JL Audio’s V.P. of Marketing.
