    American Made Car Audio

    Does anyone have a list of car audio manufactures that are american made/owned?

    I'm having a problem with my father's install because he a hard core pro-union, pro-usa person. We decided on JL audio for all his co-axials. But now we need to replace his headunit and I honestly don't know of any american made/owned companies that make headunits.

    If anyone knows...let me know please



    I used to spend a lot of my free time here. It was fun I suppose. Still rocking the 9515 and Better Audio amp haha.

    How's incriminator stuff these days?

    JL???

    The XR Series is made in Germany, The TR's are made in China or Taiwan.

    All JL amps are Korean.

    Re: American Made Car Audio

    Hmm...see my w3's were made in america
    I know JBL is made in california

    Finding the speakers isn't hard at all...but finding a headunit is next to impossible.

    BTW...when I got my JL's 3 or so years ago when I was still living at home...he had seen the box they came in and took note that they were american made so when it came time to get coaxials he requested JL...i wasnt gonna stop him

    Does RF make headunits still? Any HU you get will likely be made overseas, but at least that would be an "american" brand name...

    Rockford headunits were originally made by DELCO, which also made most of the gm factory headunits. I'm not sure if the Rockford stuff is still made by DELCO though.....

    Nakamichi sounds pretty American to me.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Well, Rockford Fosgate is about the only company making head units in the US that I'm aware of, but it would be a mistake to buy one (believe me, I know). They're junk.
