JL Audio Relies On SolidWorks Software To Bring High Quality Sound To Audiophiles













KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 6, 2013   /PRNewswire/ -- True audiophiles appreciate good sound quality and believe in the value of great audio. JL Audio, a manufacturer of home, mobile, powersports and marine audio electronics, understands the importance of audio quality, performance and reliability, and depends on SolidWorks ® 3D design software to design better products and improve the quality of its support. JL Audio engineers are able to fine tune their industry-leading speaker designs and instruction manuals with the help of ModernTech, a leading SolidWorks Value Added Reseller.

Not only are JL Audio's customers passionate about sound quality, but the Company's engineering team has long been made up of fanatical audiophiles. To bring ground-breaking audio concepts from its team to reality, JL Audio turned to SolidWorks' CAD technology and SolidWorks Simulation for finite element analysis in an effort to modify prototypes and make a better product. JL Audio also offers a number of application specific products and relies on SolidWorks Composer to simplify the creation of instruction manuals that explain how to install the more complex items by using images and animation rather than relying on text alone.

"When it comes to speaker design, our engineers are faced with a myriad of concerns, from weight and clearances to mechanical and electrical issues," said Steve Turrisi, Director of Training and Technical Services at JL Audio. "SolidWorks allows our team to account for a variety of these problems without the 'cut and try' method. We are able to cut down the number of prototypes created and identify specific areas to test before we even build a working model. This allows us to bring a much more optimized product to market in a time frame that was previously unthinkable."

In addition to streamlining the creation of its speakers, the use of SolidWorks Composer provides significant business benefits for JL Audio. The solution improves the clarity of JL Audio's owner manuals, reduces the number of errors in its bill of materials and improves reliability by ensuring the products are used as intended.
