Meyer Sound's Legendary Pro Systems Moving into Residential and Private Cinema Market
Meyer Sound’s involvement in the cinema world began back in 1980 when John Meyer built the original 650 subwoofer for the multichannel sound system touring with the 70mm theatrical release of Francis Ford Coppola’s “Apocalypse Now.” The legendary director later said, “If only every theatre had a system like this they would have the same remarkable experience I have on my stage.”
As Meyer Sound makes its award-winning professional cinema systems available to the residential home theater market, high end home theater connoisseurs can now experience the exact exhilarating aural elements heard on the sound stage during the creative process by the greatest film talents of our time.
Meyer Sound solutions also support rock stars, Broadway producers and top classical institutions – a veritable Who’s Who of top clients: Telluride Film Festival, Montreux Jazz, monster tours for the Grateful Dead, Metallica, and the Dave Matthews Band; classical artists and venues such as Pavarotti and the Walt Disney Concert Hall; multiple rooms in Jazz at Lincoln Center; renowned sound designers for mega Broadway hits like Cats, Wicked and School of Rock; and Cirque du Soleil’s tour-de-force Las Vegas spectacles.
The Meyer Sound Philosophy
A Relentless Drive to Quality.
Keeping the design, engineering, and manufacturing at the headquarters in Berkeley, California is the Meyer Sound way to ensure that every paper cone, every circuit board, and every driver is handcrafted to meet our extremely demanding standard.
We continuously analyze production methods and material selection and exercise the exhaustive quality control behind the legendary unit-to-unit consistency and reliability of Meyer Sound products.
No Risk. No Innovation.
A firm believer that every challenge is an opportunity, CEO John Meyer has cultivated a culture of hard work where we are not afraid to go against conventional wisdom.
From pioneering self-powered technology and SIM audio measurement to linear sound systems, Meyer Sound is at the origin of numerous major audio innovations leading to more than 40 patents, a staggering list of industry and engineering awards, and a reputable distinction in advancing the science of audio.
In the End, It’s All about the Results.
Innovation, however, is never the end goal. All Meyer sound systems are the result of an engineering pursuit that considers all elements from the audio source to how humans hear.
With Meyer Sound, audio practitioners also benefit from a full package of system design and validation tools, training, and support, all of which are provided to make exceptional listening experiences easier to achieve.

Great audio isn’t just our mission. It is our passion.
JL Audio is an independent, privately-held U.S. company active in the Home, Mobile, Powersports and Marine Audio markets. We focus on delivering unique engineering, superior quality and high-performance audio to our customers around the world. Behind all our efforts is a strong belief that great audio has real value, and that our customers can ‘tell the difference’.
Throughout JL Audio you will find people who love audio, take it very seriously and consider themselves fortunate to have a career in such an enjoyable field.

Supporting our engineering efforts is an outstanding group of dedicated production and logistics professionals who make sure that JL Audio's factories around the world, and here in the U.S., maintain our high quality standards. Yes, you read that last part correctly... we build many of our speakers right here in the U.S.A. Since most of our premium loudspeakers incorporate proprietary, patented technologies that require unique assembly techniques, we find that it is best to build them where we can directly control these critical processes. Today, all of our premium subwoofer drivers and all of our marine speakers are built in-house, as are most of our Enclosed Subwoofer Systems and all our Stealthbox® products.
Space doesn't permit mentioning all the talented people who work at JL Audio, but I can share that their enthusiasm for great audio manifests itself in every detail of our products and our business approach.
