London Audio is happy to be making these wonderful subwoofers available to our clientele for their audio and home theatre applications.
The E-Sub powered subwoofers apply a series of their key technologies to deliver exceptional sound quality, power and value in a wide range of demanding applications. Combining a state-of-the-art, DMA-optimized long excursion driver with a highly efficient, proprietary switching amplifier, E-Subs deliver a level of performance that belies their compact dimensions and cements their value.
The E-Sub subwoofer driver features a radical, deep architecture designed to create a highly linear, mechanical action and a motor design with enough linear excursion to handle the most challenging program material.
A totally new switching amplifier was engineered for the E-Subs, with a compact and efficient switching power supply. This design allows JL Audio to keep the E-Sub's dimensions compact while delivering ample clean power that will fully exercise the drivers' excursion ranges.
The E-Sub's feature set has been designed to allow the use of E-Subs in a wide range of applications, from full home theater systems to dedicated two-channel music systems, to desktop audio workstations. A true, two-way onboard crossover with high-pass line outputs allows the E-Sub to integrate seamlessly with two-channel systems, and high-level inputs even make it possible to add an E-Sub to systems lacking line outputs. Polarity and variable phase controls make it possible to precisely blend the E-Sub's output with that of your main speakers.
Every E-Sub is precision-built in JL Audio's U.S. factory and individually performance-verified and tested to deliver years of listening enjoyment in your home audio or home theater system.
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® 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® 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 Automatic Room Optimization circuit makes sure that response is smooth, even in challenging rooms.
Simply put, Fathom® is the compact subwoofer system for those who enjoy demanding program material and won’t settle for compromises.
Your first look will tell you that you are looking at something special... your first listen will confirm it beyond a shadow of a doubt. The beauty of the Gotham® extends well beyond its exotic design and exceptional craftsmanship, aiming right at the emotional core of musical and cinematic enjoyment.
This is a subwoofer system with limits well beyond the needs of the typical home theater application, delivering a weight and integrity of reproduction that can only come from a system that is always in control. Its allure lies as much in its ability to convey subtleties as in its prodigious output capabilities. It is simply devastating.
A luxurious, handcrafted gloss-black finish is complemented by machined aluminum and stainless steel accents for a look and feel that fits perfectly with the finest home furnishings. More importantly, the beautiful cabinet houses a pair of JL Audio's highest-technology subwoofer drivers. When demanded by program material, the Gotham's amplifier can deliver voltage equivalent to 3,800 watts of RMS power to take full advantage of the twin drivers' four inches of peak-to-peak excursion capability. This ensures that the Gotham can breeze through material that makes other subwoofers go into clipping, limiting or distress.
Listening to a Gotham® reveals an entirely new dimension of subwoofer performance... a dimension so satisfying that listening to lesser subwoofers will forever become an act of compromise.
The same minds that engineered JL Audio's reference-grade Fathom® and Gotham® powered subwoofers have created an amazing in-wall subwoofer solution, centered on a purpose-engineered, thin-line driver with patented technology.
Housing this exotic driver is a critically engineered enclosure with a unique floating mount design to minimize wall excitation. The enclosure features extensive architectural features aimed at improving rigidity while keeping a very low profile and minimal wall thickness.
A paintable, fine steel-mesh grille, also designed to control vibration, is included for each enclosure in a system.
