“Car audiophiles know the JL Audio brand well however our marine range is becoming as popular among boat owners throughout Europe, as it offers the same level of high performance as our car and home entertainment systems. All will be welcome to pop along for some advice and learn more about our standard and custom audio packages. We will be advising on speaker positioning, audio tuning and installation, which can make all the difference when you are out on the water and your music is competing with engine noise and wind.”
