Quality, Efficiency, and Convenience with JL Audio XD Amplifiers

JL Audio's XD500/3 3-channel XD series amplifier encompasses high quality at an affordable price. When JL Audio sets out to make an affordable amplifier the one thing that you can bet they will not do is compromise on quality and performance. XD amplifiers feature NexD Class D Technology, that reduces distortion and increases efficiency. The use of an Advanced Rollback Protection system will allow the XD amplifiers to maintain both thermal and low-impedance protection by either limiting available peak voltage when overheating or rolling back peak voltage when low impedance is presented at the outputs. In order to minimize engine whine or alternator noise, XD amplifiers feature differential-balanced inputs that eliminate voltage sensitivity between one input terminal and ground thus reducing the occurrence of interference. Apart from all these great technologies, XD amplifiers also feature a relatively small chassis, making them easily mountable in any vehicle without extraneous hassle. When looking for a space-saving amplifier loaded with the latest technologies and unsurpassed quality and performance, then look no further than JL Audio's XD series car amplifiers.

Small but packs a big punch

Size does not matter anymore. Small but mean. I combine this with JL C3 650 and wx12 in my Scion TC. The amp sounds great. JL has made me a believer. This amp power is under rated. I'm thinking of trying a 12W0v3 or a 12W3v3. I would buy again.

Big power in small form factor

This is my first JL amp and I am thoroughly impressed! This little amp is excellent - delivers good clean power while being very tiny and accepting of 4awg power/ground.

I'd recommend this amp to anyone.. I'm using it to power my front stage as well as a 10" sealed sub.
