Why we use JL Audio subwoofers

Why we use JL Audio subwoofers

I've enjoyed a close relationship with JL Audio over the last 15 or so years and I believe that JL Audio subwoofers are the finest on the market today. When it came time to design our Bosso™ speakers I reached out to JL Audio to acoustically optimize their woofers for our unique barrel enclosures. We decided to go with the JL Audio 8" 300-watt subwoofer to achieve outstanding bass with the precision and accuracy that I've come to expect from JL over the years. It's good to know that the Bosso™ is built just as beautifully on the inside as it is on the outside. Check out this short video to learn more about the next generation of JL Audio woofers. - Jim

Michael Gurian loves our speakers!

Michael Gurian loves our speakers!

One of the great pleasures of working in the audio business for so many years has been getting to know a host of amazing musicians, craftsmen, and audiophiles from all over the world. I am lucky to say that one of my good friends is the legendary Michael Gurian. If you don't know who Michael is, I encourage you to check out his website - gurianinstruments.com.  

Michael started building guitars back in the 1960s out of his studio in Greenwich Village. Over his career he's built guitars for Steve Miller, Paul Simon, and Bob Dylan, just to name a few!

Michael had a chance to listen to the entire series of Barrel Speakers™ today and he loved them! It's always reaffirming when someone with so much talent and a finely tuned ear gives your product a seal of approval. If you want to learn a little bit more about my friend and amazing talent, Michael Gurian, check out this short documentary.  - Jim
