Miramar, Fla. -
has voluntarily recalled select HD750/1 autosound amplifiers and MHD750/1 marine-audio amplifiers shipped to authorized dealers before December 2009.
The amps could cause a fire "under rare circumstances," the company said. A few incidents have resulted in damage but no injuries, the company added.
JL Audio staffed up its repair facility in Phoenix to provide total turnaround time of seven to 15 days, including transit time. Repaired amplifiers will get a minimum of one year warranty coverage from the date of the repair.
JL Audio is asking consumers to discontinue use immediately and bring their vehicle or boat to an authorized JL Audio dealer, which will unmount the amplifier, verify that it is included in the recall, and send it to JL Audio. JL will compensate dealers for the effort and pay for shipping.
JL Audio is supplying dealers with the serial numbers of affected amps shipped to them so dealers can identify and notify purchasers of the recall.
U.S. consumers could also follow the procedures outlined at
to send their amplifier directly to JL Audio.
JL Audio is working with the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Office of Boating Safety on the recall.
