JL Audio Fathom f112 Subwoofer


Seriously, thanks.? I haven't had anything this refreshing from audio equipment since a long, long time.? This is the kind of $#^+ that makes me want to believe again. As sincerely as a junkie can get."

So, that’s pretty much it for my observations. How can I summarize best? The JL Audio Fathom f112 subwoofers are awesome, and severely well-rounded. They are my favorites to date, period. Perhaps I should just conclude with my initial reactions,...

JL Audio Fathom f112 Subwoofer Review


The JL Audio has produced a very serious subwoofer in the Fathom f112, the smallest sibling in their home audio line.. This is a powerful sub capable of prodigious deep bass output. Make no mistake; if you have loose objects in the house, this sub will...

Powerful sub capable of tactile bass ; Detailed, precise low frequency output ; Musical with excellent micro and macro dynamics ; Superb build quality and finish ; ARO feature will take the mud out of the listening experience ; Heavy

JL Audio Fathom f112 Subwoofer Reviewed


The driver on the JL Audio Fathom f112 is a "modern marvel." Our reviewer found that it has "astonishing three-inch excursion and can rock you to your soul." It may cost a few dollars more, but "it is also fast, deep and has the spank to get you as low...

Power, power and more power is this subwoofer's calling card. The JL Audio Fathom f112 goes low and loud ; The build quality is impressive, which will come as a surprise for somewho think a JL home theater subwoofer is nothing more than some...

Be careful where you place the woofer as, at 115 pounds, you can do damage to floors and/or furniture, to say nothing of seriously pissing off the neighbors if you live with any shared walls ; Other high-end woofer manufacturers offer more finish...

This subwoofer is a total monster. Powerful and able to move some serious air, the JL Audio Fathom f112 at its price is a killer. Yes, it's an expensive woofer, but it also is fast, deep and has the spank to get you as low (and as loud) as you ever...

JL Audio Fathom f112 and f113 Powered Subwoofers


Until recently, JL Audio was known primarily as a builder of ultra-robust, high-end car-fi components and for this reason I was at first skeptical when I learned the firm planned to enter the home audio marketplace with a series of high-performance...

Test Bench: JL Audio Fathom f112 Subwoofer


I measured the JL Audio Fathom f112 subwoofer's bass limits with it set to maximum bandwidth and full gain and placed in the optimal corner of a 7,500-cubic-foot room. In a smaller room, users can expect 2 to 3 Hz deeper extension and as much as 3 dB...

Powerful, controlled deep bass


This is a hell of a good subwoofer. If you've got the scratch to buy it and the abs to unpack and install it, you won't be sorry.
