Product Details

JL Audio XD Series Three-Channel Mobile Audio Amplifier, Model XD5003

Amazingly small in size, but huge in audio performance, the JL Audio XD amplifiers are the perfect solution for space-conscious installations or for anyone seeking affordable excellence in a mobile amplifier.

JL Audio's exclusive NexD™ switching technology achieves total amplifier efficiencies exceeding 80%, which means far less heat and less strain on your vehicle's electrical system than a conventional large amplifier. This efficiency advantage, combined with state-of-the-art microelectronic components allows us to use very compact unitary cast alloy heat sinks. As with their more expensive HD siblings, XD's also deploy our Advanced Thermal Rollback System to completely eliminate annoying thermal shut-down events.

Beneath every XD's removable control cover, you will find studio-grade signal processing with fully variable crossover filters. Also included are our noise-killing, highly flexible differential-balanced inputs with remote level control capabilities via the HD-RLC remote level control (optional).

Some might just see a small amplifier... But, for those who appreciate great audio, XD's reveal something huge.

Key Features:

  • NexD™ Class D Technology
    Cutting-edge switching technology reduces distortion and delivers exceptional efficiency

  • Advanced Rollback Protection
    Borrowing a page from the HD amplifiers' bag of tricks, the XD amplifiers employ advanced thermal and low-impedance protection to virtually eliminate annoying amplifier shut-down events

  • Active Crossover Features
    Fully variable 12dB/octave filters with detented filter frequency selection controls offer excellent tuning flexibility

  • Preamp Outputs
    Pass-through pre-amp outputs permit interconnection of multiple amplifiers

  • Remote Level Control (HD-RLC)
    With the addition of an HD-RLC you can control the overall level of the amplifier (or amplifiers) from the front of your vehicle (Sold Separately)

  • Differential-Balanced Inputs
    Greatly reduce noise and provide compatibility with a wide range of sources, including most OEM systems
