JL Audio said it has partnered with Avidworx Productions to create a series of dedicated in-store displays for authorized dealers to showcase and demonstrate JL’s automotive, powersports and marine audio products.

Avidworx has integrated switching capabilities into the displays and made them available in four configurations — the JL Audio Extreme, The M3-7 Sound Stage, the M3-5 Sound Stage, and the M3-3 Sound Stage.

More information on the displays and program are available here.

“We are excited to be able to offer this program to our customers and to work with one of the most innovative brands in the industry,” Avidworx president Marcel Newell said in a statement. “We know customers are going to love the educational and interactive experience and that retailers will appreciate a modular approach that makes it easy to update the showcase over time.”

“The most important part of any emotional purchase is the demonstration experience,” JL Audio sales vice president Carl Kennedy said. “Attractive, high-performance displays like these great new designs from Avidworx do precisely this. By partnering with Avidworx we are able to bring this great resource to our retail partners to help them — sell great audio.”
