Fathom F113 V2
The Fathom f113 v2 is the third product of the Fathom® line-up, offering 3000 watts of power to drive its single 13.5-inch active driver.
The Fathom f113 v2 is a heavyweight subwoofer capable of filling the most demanding rooms with powerful low-frequency output and reference-class sound quality.
The combination of an ultra-long throw W7 13.5-inch driver and a very powerful switching amplifier give it the kind of output normally associated with far larger subwoofer systems.
Because it is built with the same driver and amplifier technology as JL Audio’s flagship Gotham®, the Fathom f113 v2 delivers a tremendous level of sound quality.
Low distortion, excellent dynamic capabilities and shockingly deep bass extension will allow you to experience all the excitement of the most demanding cinematic material, while also being able to reproduce all the nuance and texture of your most delicate musical material.
A complete set of signal processing features is easily accessible on the front surface of every Fathom.
These include a highly flexible low-pass filter, variable phase, switchable polarity, e.l.f. trim and JL Audio’s powerful Digital Automatic Room Optimisation (D.A.R.O.) system.
A calibrated microphone is included for the D.A.R.O. system.
Input connections are made via unbalanced RCA connections or balanced Neutrik® combo XLR/TRS jacks.
Also included is an XLR output to connect a second Fathom® as a slave unit.
Manufacturing Fathom F113 V2
|Driver Manufacturing||Special, patented drivers like the massive W7’s and thin-line TW5’s used in JL Audio home subwoofers require proprietary assembly techniques and tightly monitored production disciplines that ensure consistency and quality to meet these needs, JL Audio’s Miramar, Florida loudspeaker assembly facility has been specifically designed and equipped to build all of JL Audio’s cutting-edge loudspeakers. There is no other facility like it in the world…and no production team more dedicated to total quality.|
|Final Assembly||Fathom® and Gotham® powered subwoofers are assembled by a highly skilled team in JL Audio’s Miramar, Florida factory. Each assembly technician is responsible for the entire assembly process and follows documented procedures to ensure quality and consistency.
Ergonomic workstations with hydraulic lifts and multiple torque controlled tools allow for efficient and precise assembly of every product to the exact specifications established by JL Audio’s Engineering Department.
|Testing||Quality is engineered into every one of JL Audio’s products. It must also be verified and documented with defined, repeatable test protocols.
To this end every Fathom and Gotham’s components are tested individually and as a connected system before assembly. At the end of final assembly, every subwoofer must pass a battery of electrical, functional and acoustic tests before it ships to JL Audio’s authorised dealers.
