Our take on the JL Audio M1000/5v2

by Jon Paulette
JL Audio

High power for the high seas

If you're looking for an amplifier with the juice to run a complete high-performance marine audio system, JL Audio's powerful M1000/5v2marine amplifier could be just the thing you need. This 5-channel amp delivers 75 watts RMS each to four separate speakers, plus up to 600 watts to your marine subs.

JL Audio M1000/5v2 5-channel marine amplifier

This rugged JL Audio 5-channel amp can drive your boat's entire sound system.

The key ingredient is JL Audio's Class D NexD™ ultra-high-speed switching design, which eliminates the traditional drawbacks of a Class D amp design to deliver full-bandwidth performance, excellent efficiency, and very low distortion levels. You'll get remarkable sound quality from one compact amp that won't take up a vast amount of space on your boat.

Tough and versatile

JL Audio designed this 5-channel amp with marine use in mind, so it's not just powerful; it's also tough enough to stand up to life on the water. Special powder-coat finishes, a gasketed control cover, and rugged stainless-steel hardware combine to protect this amp against the moisture, extreme temperatures, and corrosive salt. The amp's versatile design gives you plenty of configuration options when you're building your system. Built-in high-pass, low-pass, or bandpass filter modes (depending on the channels) let you tailor the output to meet your system's needs. JL Audio's optional wired remote lets you adjust the amp's level from the helm.
