Our electric cooling fan in the JLU is REALLY loud! We hear it at low speeds inside the cab. I was setting on the front porch a bit ago, and I could hear the fan at a distance of at least 50 yards as the wife came down the road. I've heard fans in other cars but nothing like this. Anybody else notice this issue or is it the nature of the beast?

Yes. Same here. My wife thought there was something wrong with the car.

Yep mine too. It is pretty loud. I’m not too worried unless I hear something hinky.

Yeah mine too. Dealer told me every JL they get, they check it and it's a JL thing.

Thanks folks for your replies. Wife thought there was a problem too and was bugging me about it. Told her to chill. But she hasn't chilled in the 44 years we've been married. I'll just show her your replies and turn up Classic Vinyl another notch or two.

Mine to sounds like a jet getting ready to take off, more so when AC is set to max
Same here, super loud and caught me off guard as I pulled into the garage today. Having said that, the through put of the AC is impressive.

Same thing happening on mine. Before I know it, it’ll be back to cold & I won’t hear it for a while. Central New York weather! :giggle:

Classic Vinyl! Always a preset favorite channel on my radios!! :like:

Yeah, it runs full blast while A/C is max. Turns off when A/C is off. I’m not in love with the noise but am thankful because this thing isn’t going to overheat in our Texas summers either. :)

Did a remote start in the hopes of cooling the interior with today's sunny 95F weather,,,,,,, I was surprised by the cooling fan noise as I left the house (jet engine level is not that far off the mark:)) as A/C defaults to Max with remote start. I am impressed with it's quick cooling ability.
