We are now dealers for JL Audios superb line of subwoofers

by Nyal Mellor October 13, 2010

Acoustic Frontiers LLC is happy to announce that we are stocking and selling subwoofers from JL Audio. Our experience is that integrating a subwoofer into a system is not easy or straightforward. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to get good results by ear alone even if one uses test disks and an SPL meter.

For this reason we are offering FREE onsite calibration within the areas we serve on all JL Audio subwoofers.
