JL Audio E-Sub e110 10-inch (1200w) and e112 12-inch (1500w) powered subwoofers -

Applying a series of our key technologies, E-Sub powered subwoofers deliver exceptional sound quality, power and value in a wide range of demanding applications

E-Sub drivers employ our exclusive DMA technology to optimize the drivers' motor strength, ensuring linear behaviour over a very long excursion range. Unlike typical steady-state modelling systems, DMA takes into account the dynamic shifts created by current flow and back EMF under real power conditions, with real program material. The payoff offered by DMA optimization is a driver that faithfully tracks its input signal, at all listening levels, leading to superior bass definition and dynamics.

The extreme mounting depth of the E-Sub driver is very deliberate. It permits wide gaps to exist between the three suspension elements (the rubber surround and the dual spiders), imparting exceptional mechanical stability over the driver's full excursion range. This further improves linearity, reduces distortion and enhances long-term reliability. In a stroke of engineering elegance, the E-Sub’s steel front mounting flange forms the entire front baffle of the finished product, while the driver’s back-plate is threaded and bolted to the rear wall of its enclosure for support.

To power these innovative drivers, we engineered a completely new switching amplifier with a regulated, switching power supply, making its chassis more compact, lightweight and efficient, while still delivering ample, clean power to fully exercise the E-Sub driver's performance envelope.

Conveniently controlled from the E-Sub cabinet’s top panel, the amplifier incorporates studio-grade signal processing to make adjustments a much more enjoyable experience than rear–mounted controls found on most powered subwoofers. An attractive cover hides and protects the controls during normal use.

The feature set has been designed to allow the use of E-Subs in a wide range of applications, from full home theatre systems to dedicated two-channel music systems, to desktop audio workstations. Analogue inputs are provided for unbalanced line-level signals or speaker level signals. Dedicated line outputs are included to make a bi-amped system arrangement with no additional hardware required. Useful in combating ground-related noise problems, a rear panel switch configures the line level inputs as grounded or isolated. 

The E-Sub’s active crossover is a true two-way, 4th order Linkwitz-Riley design, with a low-pass filter feeding the subwoofer's amplifier and a high-pass filtered signal exiting its line outputs. When the on-board crossover is defeated, as is typical in a home theatre installation, the line outputs deliver a pass-through, buffered signal identical to its line inputs, easily permitting multiple E-Subs to be interconnected in a ‘daisy-chain' arrangement. Switchable polarity and a fully variable phase control round out the signal processing section. All signal processing is performed in the analogue domain, ensuring very low latency in critical applications.

Precision-built in JL Audio's U.S. factory, all E-Sub's are individually performance-verified and tested to deliver years of listening enjoyment in your home audio or home theatre system.

JL Audio CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover -

x6_73391ba65fcd3ae405cf25b738c50b57.jpg?
JL Audio's CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover is at Musicraft (Derby)

The lucky few who have heard a well-integrated subwoofer in a great audio system know that the subwoofer's effect is profound. While everyone expects the bass extension to improve, most are shocked at the transformation that occurs in the main speakers. They simply open up, delivering improved dynamics, superior imaging and more low-level detail. Many describe it as the greatest speaker upgrade they have ever made.

Over the years, we have calibrated many subwoofer systems in highly critical listening environments, and we have been frustrated by the limitations of active crossovers we have worked with. Tired of struggling with "blunt instruments", we felt that a higher precision tool was needed, so we decided to build it and call it "CR-1". When properly set up, CR-1 creates a listening experience in which the subwoofers and main speakers become one, delivering a cohesive and compelling sonic presentation.

The CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover has been designed by audiophiles, for audiophiles. We believe it has no equal, offering a powerful combination of subwoofer/satellite tuning features, and a complete commitment to analogue signal purity.

x4_73391ba65fcd3ae405cf25b738c50b57.jpg?
JL Audio's CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover is at Musicraft (Derby)

CR-1 is built around two banks of precision Linkwitz-Riley low-pass and high-pass filters. Multiplying DACs with monolithic ratio matching are employed to adjust the analogue circuit's filter frequencies. This offers superior tracking behaviour and far more precise left/right channel balance, compared to conventional approaches.

Another of CR-1's unique and powerful features is a pair of rotary controls that control the damping of each filter bank. These damping controls dramatically improve the acoustic summing through the crossover region, by compensating for each speaker system's frequency response. At the center of the front panel, a single intuitive, rotary control permits quick adjustment of the relative level between the subwoofer(s) and main speakers.

To minimize distortion and noise, CR-1 employs top-grade component parts in its all-analogue audio circuitry: 1% precision resistors, JFET-input audio-grade op-amps, polypropylene film-and-foil capacitors and metallized-polypropylene film capacitors, to name just a few. We also build CR-1 right here in the U.S.A., to ensure top quality and dependability.

CR-1's input-output design makes it equally adaptable to studio, mastering suite or audiophile two-channel playback environments. To accommodate dual-mode systems, we also include a bypass feature that engages a pass-through from a dedicated "Managed Bass Input" on the rear panel, to the CR-1's subwoofer outputs. This makes it convenient to switch from two-channel to multi-channel mode.

CR-1 is the ultimate tool for subwoofer integration.

The worlds best subwoofers -

***** Musicraft’s JL Audio Fathom f212 v2 3600w subwoofer will be on show at the 2020 Bristol Show, Marriott Hotel, 21st - 23rd February. AV Tech Solutions, 3rd floor, room 328 *****

JL Audio Fathom® v2 -

The challenges associated with designing high-output compact subwoofer systems can be quite daunting. In most cases, designers sacrifice low-frequency extension or output capability in order to keep the design small.  

The Fathom® v2 subwoofers sacrifice nothing, thanks to the dynamic advantages of their proprietary JL Audio woofers. These exceptional drivers allow for a true subwoofer passband and very high output, while keeping distortion well below audible thresholds. To extract full benefit from the excursion envelope of its woofer, each Fathom® v2 employs an exceptionally powerful switching amplifier with a large toroidal transformer and a patented circuit designed to enhance control and fidelity.

The compact design and conventional form factor of the Fathoms apply beautifully to most home theater applications, including built-in designs. Front-mounted controls make them a dream to set up and adjust, while JL Audio’s exclusive Digital Automatic Room Optimization circuit makes sure that response is smooth, even in challenging rooms.

Simply put, Fathom® v2 is the compact subwoofer system for those who enjoy demanding program material and won’t settle for compromises.

JL Audio Fathom® f212 v2 Powered Subwoofer with Dual 12-inch Subwoofer Drivers, 3600 watts -

JL Audio Fathom f212 v2 3600w subwoofer is at Musicraft (Derby). Unfathomable sub bass by JL Audio

The f212 v2 is the ultimate expression of the Fathom v2 formula. It is ideal for larger spaces thanks to its higher efficiency and higher power output. The combination of dual ultra-long throw W7 12-inch drivers and a very powerful switching amplifier give it jaw-dropping performance capabilities at any listening level.

Because it is built with the same driver and amplifier technology as our flagship Gotham v2, the f212 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 v2. These include a highly flexible low-pass filter, variable phase, switchable polarity, e.l.f. trim and our powerful Digital Automatic Room Optimization (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 v2 as a slave unit.

"I doubt that there’s a loudspeaker on the planet that this Peachtree won’t drive with sure-footed authority. Peachtree’s own nova150 aside, I also doubt that there’s an integrated amplifier out there with as much functionality for as few dollars." 

"The nova300 is an exceptional beast. Its combination of ALL of the above (read: real world flexibility) and serious output power, both into loudspeakers and headphones, comes wrapped in shell amply suited to luxury department store shelf space where its über high-end audio aspirations could end up obscured."

JL Audio CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover -

JL Audio's CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover is at Musicraft (Derby)

The lucky few who have heard a well-integrated subwoofer in a great audio system know that the subwoofer's effect is profound. While everyone expects the bass extension to improve, most are shocked at the transformation that occurs in the main speakers. They simply open up, delivering improved dynamics, superior imaging and more low-level detail. Many describe it as the greatest speaker upgrade they have ever made.

Over the years, we have calibrated many subwoofer systems in highly critical listening environments, and we have been frustrated by the limitations of active crossovers we have worked with. Tired of struggling with "blunt instruments", we felt that a higher precision tool was needed, so we decided to build it and call it "CR-1". When properly set up, CR-1 creates a listening experience in which the subwoofers and main speakers become one, delivering a cohesive and compelling sonic presentation.

The CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover has been designed by audiophiles, for audiophiles. We believe it has no equal, offering a powerful combination of subwoofer/satellite tuning features, and a complete commitment to analogue signal purity.

JL Audio's CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover is at Musicraft (Derby)

CR-1 is built around two banks of precision Linkwitz-Riley low-pass and high-pass filters. Multiplying DACs with monolithic ratio matching are employed to adjust the analogue circuit's filter frequencies. This offers superior tracking behaviour and far more precise left/right channel balance, compared to conventional approaches.

Another of CR-1's unique and powerful features is a pair of rotary controls that control the damping of each filter bank. These damping controls dramatically improve the acoustic summing through the crossover region, by compensating for each speaker system's frequency response. At the center of the front panel, a single intuitive, rotary control permits quick adjustment of the relative level between the subwoofer(s) and main speakers.

To minimize distortion and noise, CR-1 employs top-grade component parts in its all-analogue audio circuitry: 1% precision resistors, JFET-input audio-grade op-amps, polypropylene film-and-foil capacitors and metallized-polypropylene film capacitors, to name just a few. We also build CR-1 right here in the U.S.A., to ensure top quality and dependability.

CR-1's input-output design makes it equally adaptable to studio, mastering suite or audiophile two-channel playback environments. To accommodate dual-mode systems, we also include a bypass feature that engages a pass-through from a dedicated "Managed Bass Input" on the rear panel, to the CR-1's subwoofer outputs. This makes it convenient to switch from two-channel to multi-channel mode.

CR-1 is the ultimate tool for subwoofer integration.

The worlds best subwoofers -

YouTube video. Combining a state-of-the-art, DMA-optimized long excursion driver with a highly efficient, proprietary switching amplifier, our E-Subs deliver a level of performance that belies their compact dimensions and cements their value.

Check out the key technologies and components featured inside our 12'' E-Sub powered subwoofer below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7isCoWdjNs

e112-DRVR-RRT.jpg?v=1578608514

JL Audio E-Sub e110 10-inch (1200w) and e112 12-inch (1500w) powered subwoofers -

Applying a series of our key technologies, E-Sub powered subwoofers deliver exceptional sound quality, power and value in a wide range of demanding applications

E-Sub drivers employ our exclusive DMA technology to optimize the drivers' motor strength, ensuring linear behaviour over a very long excursion range. Unlike typical steady-state modelling systems, DMA takes into account the dynamic shifts created by current flow and back EMF under real power conditions, with real program material. The payoff offered by DMA optimization is a driver that faithfully tracks its input signal, at all listening levels, leading to superior bass definition and dynamics.

The extreme mounting depth of the E-Sub driver is very deliberate. It permits wide gaps to exist between the three suspension elements (the rubber surround and the dual spiders), imparting exceptional mechanical stability over the driver's full excursion range. This further improves linearity, reduces distortion and enhances long-term reliability. In a stroke of engineering elegance, the E-Sub’s steel front mounting flange forms the entire front baffle of the finished product, while the driver’s back-plate is threaded and bolted to the rear wall of its enclosure for support.

To power these innovative drivers, we engineered a completely new switching amplifier with a regulated, switching power supply, making its chassis more compact, lightweight and efficient, while still delivering ample, clean power to fully exercise the E-Sub driver's performance envelope.

Conveniently controlled from the E-Sub cabinet’s top panel, the amplifier incorporates studio-grade signal processing to make adjustments a much more enjoyable experience than rear–mounted controls found on most powered subwoofers. An attractive cover hides and protects the controls during normal use.

The feature set has been designed to allow the use of E-Subs in a wide range of applications, from full home theatre systems to dedicated two-channel music systems, to desktop audio workstations. Analogue inputs are provided for unbalanced line-level signals or speaker level signals. Dedicated line outputs are included to make a bi-amped system arrangement with no additional hardware required. Useful in combating ground-related noise problems, a rear panel switch configures the line level inputs as grounded or isolated. 

The E-Sub’s active crossover is a true two-way, 4th order Linkwitz-Riley design, with a low-pass filter feeding the subwoofer's amplifier and a high-pass filtered signal exiting its line outputs. When the on-board crossover is defeated, as is typical in a home theatre installation, the line outputs deliver a pass-through, buffered signal identical to its line inputs, easily permitting multiple E-Subs to be interconnected in a ‘daisy-chain' arrangement. Switchable polarity and a fully variable phase control round out the signal processing section. All signal processing is performed in the analogue domain, ensuring very low latency in critical applications.

Precision-built in JL Audio's U.S. factory, all E-Sub's are individually performance-verified and tested to deliver years of listening enjoyment in your home audio or home theatre system.

The worlds best subwoofers - 

JL Audio’s Fathom f212 v2 3600w powered subwoofer is at Musicraft (Derby).

JL Audio Fathom® v2 -

The challenges associated with designing high-output compact subwoofer systems can be quite daunting. In most cases, designers sacrifice low-frequency extension or output capability in order to keep the design small.  

The Fathom® v2 subwoofers sacrifice nothing, thanks to the dynamic advantages of their proprietary JL Audio woofers. These exceptional drivers allow for a true subwoofer passband and very high output, while keeping distortion well below audible thresholds. To extract full benefit from the excursion envelope of its woofer, each Fathom® v2 employs an exceptionally powerful switching amplifier with a large toroidal transformer and a patented circuit designed to enhance control and fidelity.

The compact design and conventional form factor of the Fathoms apply beautifully to most home theater applications, including built-in designs. Front-mounted controls make them a dream to set up and adjust, while JL Audio’s exclusive Digital Automatic Room Optimization circuit makes sure that response is smooth, even in challenging rooms.

Simply put, Fathom® v2 is the compact subwoofer system for those who enjoy demanding program material and won’t settle for compromises.

JL Audio Fathom® f212 v2 Powered Subwoofer with Dual 12-inch Subwoofer Drivers, 3600 watts -

JL Audio Fathom f212 v2 3600w subwoofer is at Musicraft (Derby). Unfathomable sub bass by JL Audio

The f212 v2 is the ultimate expression of the Fathom v2 formula. It is ideal for larger spaces thanks to its higher efficiency and higher power output. The combination of dual ultra-long throw W7 12-inch drivers and a very powerful switching amplifier give it jaw-dropping performance capabilities at any listening level.

Because it is built with the same driver and amplifier technology as our flagship Gotham v2, the f212 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 v2. These include a highly flexible low-pass filter, variable phase, switchable polarity, e.l.f. trim and our powerful Digital Automatic Room Optimization (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 v2 as a slave unit.

JL Audio CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover -

x6_73391ba65fcd3ae405cf25b738c50b57.jpg?
JL Audio's CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover is at Musicraft (Derby)

The lucky few who have heard a well-integrated subwoofer in a great audio system know that the subwoofer's effect is profound. While everyone expects the bass extension to improve, most are shocked at the transformation that occurs in the main speakers. They simply open up, delivering improved dynamics, superior imaging and more low-level detail. Many describe it as the greatest speaker upgrade they have ever made.

Over the years, we have calibrated many subwoofer systems in highly critical listening environments, and we have been frustrated by the limitations of active crossovers we have worked with. Tired of struggling with "blunt instruments", we felt that a higher precision tool was needed, so we decided to build it and call it "CR-1". When properly set up, CR-1 creates a listening experience in which the subwoofers and main speakers become one, delivering a cohesive and compelling sonic presentation.

The CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover has been designed by audiophiles, for audiophiles. We believe it has no equal, offering a powerful combination of subwoofer/satellite tuning features, and a complete commitment to analogue signal purity.

JL Audio's CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover is at Musicraft (Derby)

CR-1 is built around two banks of precision Linkwitz-Riley low-pass and high-pass filters. Multiplying DACs with monolithic ratio matching are employed to adjust the analogue circuit's filter frequencies. This offers superior tracking behaviour and far more precise left/right channel balance, compared to conventional approaches.

Another of CR-1's unique and powerful features is a pair of rotary controls that control the damping of each filter bank. These damping controls dramatically improve the acoustic summing through the crossover region, by compensating for each speaker system's frequency response. At the center of the front panel, a single intuitive, rotary control permits quick adjustment of the relative level between the subwoofer(s) and main speakers.

To minimize distortion and noise, CR-1 employs top-grade component parts in its all-analogue audio circuitry: 1% precision resistors, JFET-input audio-grade op-amps, polypropylene film-and-foil capacitors and metallized-polypropylene film capacitors, to name just a few. We also build CR-1 right here in the U.S.A., to ensure top quality and dependability.

CR-1's input-output design makes it equally adaptable to studio, mastering suite or audiophile two-channel playback environments. To accommodate dual-mode systems, we also include a bypass feature that engages a pass-through from a dedicated "Managed Bass Input" on the rear panel, to the CR-1's subwoofer outputs. This makes it convenient to switch from two-channel to multi-channel mode.

CR-1 is the ultimate tool for subwoofer integration.

JL Audio Fathom® v2 -

The challenges associated with designing high-output compact subwoofer systems can be quite daunting. In most cases, designers sacrifice low-frequency extension or output capability in order to keep the design small.  

The Fathom® v2 subwoofers sacrifice nothing, thanks to the dynamic advantages of their proprietary JL Audio woofers. These exceptional drivers allow for a true subwoofer passband and very high output, while keeping distortion well below audible thresholds. To extract full benefit from the excursion envelope of its woofer, each Fathom® v2 employs an exceptionally powerful switching amplifier with a large toroidal transformer and a patented circuit designed to enhance control and fidelity.

The compact design and conventional form factor of the Fathoms apply beautifully to most home theater applications, including built-in designs. Front-mounted controls make them a dream to set up and adjust, while JL Audio’s exclusive Digital Automatic Room Optimization circuit makes sure that response is smooth, even in challenging rooms.

Simply put, Fathom® v2 is the compact subwoofer system for those who enjoy demanding program material and won’t settle for compromises.

JL Audio Fathom f112 v2 powered subwoofer with 12-inch Subwoofer Driver, 1800 watts -

f112v2-FLT.jpg?v=1578072641
JL Audio Fathom f112 v2 1800w subwoofer is at Musicraft (Derby). Unfathomable sub bass by JL Audio

The Fathom f112 v2 is a superb subwoofer solution in medium-sized rooms and is equally at home supporting a music-only system or a home theatre system. The combination of an ultra-long throw W7 12-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 our flagship Gotham v2, the f212 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 v2. These include a highly flexible low-pass filter, variable phase, switchable polarity, e.l.f. trim and our powerful Digital Automatic Room Optimization (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 v2 as a slave unit.

The combination of an ultra-long throw W7 10-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 our flagship Gotham v2, the Fathom f110 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 v2. These include a highly flexible low-pass filter, variable phase, switchable polarity, e.l.f. trim and our powerful Digital Automatic Room Optimization (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.

JL Audio CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover -

x6_73391ba65fcd3ae405cf25b738c50b57.jpg?
JL Audio's CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover is at Musicraft (Derby)

The lucky few who have heard a well-integrated subwoofer in a great audio system know that the subwoofer's effect is profound. While everyone expects the bass extension to improve, most are shocked at the transformation that occurs in the main speakers. They simply open up, delivering improved dynamics, superior imaging and more low-level detail. Many describe it as the greatest speaker upgrade they have ever made.

Over the years, we have calibrated many subwoofer systems in highly critical listening environments, and we have been frustrated by the limitations of active crossovers we have worked with. Tired of struggling with "blunt instruments", we felt that a higher precision tool was needed, so we decided to build it and call it "CR-1". When properly set up, CR-1 creates a listening experience in which the subwoofers and main speakers become one, delivering a cohesive and compelling sonic presentation.

The CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover has been designed by audiophiles, for audiophiles. We believe it has no equal, offering a powerful combination of subwoofer/satellite tuning features, and a complete commitment to analogue signal purity.

JL Audio's CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover is at Musicraft (Derby)

CR-1 is built around two banks of precision Linkwitz-Riley low-pass and high-pass filters. Multiplying DACs with monolithic ratio matching are employed to adjust the analogue circuit's filter frequencies. This offers superior tracking behaviour and far more precise left/right channel balance, compared to conventional approaches.

Another of CR-1's unique and powerful features is a pair of rotary controls that control the damping of each filter bank. These damping controls dramatically improve the acoustic summing through the crossover region, by compensating for each speaker system's frequency response. At the center of the front panel, a single intuitive, rotary control permits quick adjustment of the relative level between the subwoofer(s) and main speakers.

To minimize distortion and noise, CR-1 employs top-grade component parts in its all-analogue audio circuitry: 1% precision resistors, JFET-input audio-grade op-amps, polypropylene film-and-foil capacitors and metallized-polypropylene film capacitors, to name just a few. We also build CR-1 right here in the U.S.A., to ensure top quality and dependability.

CR-1's input-output design makes it equally adaptable to studio, mastering suite or audiophile two-channel playback environments. To accommodate dual-mode systems, we also include a bypass feature that engages a pass-through from a dedicated "Managed Bass Input" on the rear panel, to the CR-1's subwoofer outputs. This makes it convenient to switch from two-channel to multi-channel mode.

CR-1 is the ultimate tool for subwoofer integration.

Sound and Vision reviews JL Audio’s Fathom f110 v2 1100w subwoofer -

https://www.soundandvision.com/content/jl-audio-fathom-f110v2-subwoofer-review

“According to Merriam-Webster, a fathom is a unit of length equal to six feet that's used to measure the depth of water. But for JL Audio, Fathom is a family of subwoofers that dig deep into the lower depths of the audio spectrum.”

“As one would expect from something in this price class, build quality is second to none. It sports a flawless gloss-black paint job and tips the scales at 69 pounds—definitely not a light- weight by any measure.”

“The driver, which is sourced from JL Audio's W7 design platform, boasts extensive peak-to-peak excursion capabilities and is powered by a 1,100-watt switching amplifier that employs patented feedback technology.”

‘John Wick is a movie that gets better every time you watch it, especially on Ultra HD Blu-ray. Also, the plethora of gunshots and other bass-heavy effects in John Wick's Dolby Atmos soundtrack makes it particularly good for evaluating subwoofers. In the film, Wick has to come to grips with a new reality, one that forces him to literally dig up his past by breaking through a slab of concrete in his basement to retrieve a cache of weapons. Every strike of the sledgehammer is not only heard but felt in this scene, and the pair of f110v2s were more than up to the challenge. While my reference subs deliver more output below 20Hz in comparison, they don't measure up to the quality of bass I heard from the JL Audio drivers. These babies hit hard, really hard: Every impact from the f110v2 pair was precise and realistic, with a visceral quality that I felt in my chest.”

“Next up: Hacksaw Ridge, one of my favorite movies of the last 10 years. Not only is this an inspiring story about a World War II hero, but it has an Atmos track to die for. I queued up a sequence where our boys are about to hit the battlefield for the first time and the Navy destroyers off the coast join in the fray. Average subwoofers can't handle this intense scene at reference level and end up bottoming out, but the pair of f110v2s didn't shirk their duty. When the guns moved into position, the subs proved able to shake my subfloor. And when the overhead barrage began and all hell broke loose, I was transported straight to the battlefield with explosions rocking the room.”

“Some of my go-to music tracks for subwoofer testing include "Fidelity" by Regina Spektor, "Blank Space" by Taylor Swift, "Baby" by Justin Bieber, and "Sleep Like a Child" by Joss Stone. These songs each test a subwoofer in a slightly different way, and I was impressed with how the bass on each of them was conveyed by the f110v2s. I was also impressed with how well the subs blended with my reference M&K S150 studio monitors (crossed over at 80Hz). I wrote down the following in my notes: tight, fast, clean, quick, deep— all the qualities you look for in a subwoofer.”

“I've been impressed with 10-inch subwoofers in the past, most notably JL Audio's own D110, but for me there's now a new pint-sized sub champion. I was blown away by how well the f110v2 performed, and while $3,500 is undoubtedly expensive for an average consumer, you will get what you pay for if you can afford it. I was never left wanting when listening to even the most strenuous and LFE- intensive movie soundtracks, and I also heard plenty of bass heft and weight in the 20-50 Hz range when listening to music. Furthermore, the f110v2 might just be the fastest-sounding woofer I've ever encountered, and it was able to move a ton of air for such a small footprint. This experience has whetted my appetite to hear how JL Audio's larger offerings perform—I wouldn't object if the company sent me a pair of its F113s to test (hint-hint)! If you can afford the high cost of entry for one or, better yet, two f110v2 subwoofers, you won't be disappointed. This subwoofer's small size and great looks give it a high spouse acceptance factor, and having the ability for two units to work in tandem is a powerful bonus.”

JL Audio Fathom® v2 -

The challenges associated with designing high-output compact subwoofer systems can be quite daunting. In most cases, designers sacrifice low-frequency extension or output capability in order to keep the design small.  

The Fathom® v2 subwoofers sacrifice nothing, thanks to the dynamic advantages of their proprietary JL Audio woofers. These exceptional drivers allow for a true subwoofer passband and very high output, while keeping distortion well below audible thresholds. To extract full benefit from the excursion envelope of its woofer, each Fathom® v2 employs an exceptionally powerful switching amplifier with a large toroidal transformer and a patented circuit designed to enhance control and fidelity.

The compact design and conventional form factor of the Fathoms apply beautifully to most home theater applications, including built-in designs. Front-mounted controls make them a dream to set up and adjust, while JL Audio’s exclusive Digital Automatic Room Optimization circuit makes sure that response is smooth, even in challenging rooms.

Simply put, Fathom® v2 is the compact subwoofer system for those who enjoy demanding program material and won’t settle for compromises.

The Fathom f110 v2 is the most compact subwoofer in the Fathom v2 line up but is fully capable of delivering stellar performance in smaller spaces.

JL Audio CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover -

JL Audio's CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover is at Musicraft (Derby)

The lucky few who have heard a well-integrated subwoofer in a great audio system know that the subwoofer's effect is profound. While everyone expects the bass extension to improve, most are shocked at the transformation that occurs in the main speakers. They simply open up, delivering improved dynamics, superior imaging and more low-level detail. Many describe it as the greatest speaker upgrade they have ever made.

Over the years, we have calibrated many subwoofer systems in highly critical listening environments, and we have been frustrated by the limitations of active crossovers we have worked with. Tired of struggling with "blunt instruments", we felt that a higher precision tool was needed, so we decided to build it and call it "CR-1". When properly set up, CR-1 creates a listening experience in which the subwoofers and main speakers become one, delivering a cohesive and compelling sonic presentation.

The CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover has been designed by audiophiles, for audiophiles. We believe it has no equal, offering a powerful combination of subwoofer/satellite tuning features, and a complete commitment to analogue signal purity.

CR-1 is built around two banks of precision Linkwitz-Riley low-pass and high-pass filters. Multiplying DACs with monolithic ratio matching are employed to adjust the analogue circuit's filter frequencies. This offers superior tracking behaviour and far more precise left/right channel balance, compared to conventional approaches.

Another of CR-1's unique and powerful features is a pair of rotary controls that control the damping of each filter bank. These damping controls dramatically improve the acoustic summing through the crossover region, by compensating for each speaker system's frequency response. At the center of the front panel, a single intuitive, rotary control permits quick adjustment of the relative level between the subwoofer(s) and main speakers.

To minimize distortion and noise, CR-1 employs top-grade component parts in its all-analogue audio circuitry: 1% precision resistors, JFET-input audio-grade op-amps, polypropylene film-and-foil capacitors and metallized-polypropylene film capacitors, to name just a few. We also build CR-1 right here in the U.S.A., to ensure top quality and dependability.

CR-1's input-output design makes it equally adaptable to studio, mastering suite or audiophile two-channel playback environments. To accommodate dual-mode systems, we also include a bypass feature that engages a pass-through from a dedicated "Managed Bass Input" on the rear panel, to the CR-1's subwoofer outputs. This makes it convenient to switch from two-channel to multi-channel mode.

CR-1 is the ultimate tool for subwoofer integration.
