When you shop the best car audio brands, you don’t have to sacrifice style to get excellent performance. Here are eight products that belong in the most unbelievable in-car audio systems.
JL Audio VX1000/ 5i 5 Channel Amplifier
Amplifiers are usually the unsung heroes of high-performance audio systems. They operate behind the scenes to send strong, clear signals to every other component of your audio setup. When you choose this five channel amp from JL Audio, you will want everyone to see it.
An LED logo ring can be configured to light up in a color of your choosing, which gives you a high-tech look with your personal touch. The compact casing is only part of a complete package. Configure this versatile amp with your PC, tablet or smartphone to achieve maximum control of your entire sound system.
Kicker 44KXA800.1 Mono Bass Amplifier
If you aren’t ready to invest in the JL five-channel amplifier, choose this one from Kicker to send a stronger signal to your subwoofer. This 800 watt RMS bass amplifier offers plenty of power for listeners who love thumping beats. It comes with a wireless remote so you can control the power and refine your sound. The power and performance come from a sleek black aluminum chassis with a red LED light pipe.

The compact, understated design will fit into your car nicely, and it still comes through with amazing performance thanks to its superior technology.
JL Audio HO112-W6V3 Loaded Enclosure
If you have a little bit more room to spare, you may want to show off your bass with this classic JL subwoofer enclosure.

Products like this are what give JL Audio its reputation as a leader for both style and performance.
