JL Audio Expands Line of Architectural Subwoofer Solutions

New Fathom 8-Inch in-wall and in-ceiling subwoofer systems join the 13.5-inch Fathom model.

JL Audio is now shipping an 8-inch version of its Fathom IWS in-wall subwoofer systems with additional enclosure option for in-ceiling applications. The new 8-inch Fathom IWS and ICS systems join a previous model, with a 13.5-inch driver, in the Fathom IWS lineup.

The 8-inch Fathom IWS and ICS systems are packaged in compact enclosures that utilize extensive architectural features aimed at improving rigidity. A unique port design vents through a slot located at the perimeter of the driver mount to enhance efficiency and low-bass output. Inside the enclosure is an all-new, long-excursion, 8-inch thin-line woofer, built specifically by JL Audio for these products. Each 8-inch Fathom IWS and ICS system is driven by a rack-mountable amplifier with up to 600 watts of clean power, programmed specifically for each system. A complete set of Fathom signal processing features is also onboard, including an 18-band Digital Automatic Room Optimization (D.A.R.O.) system, and high-pass crossover outputs, all accessible via a menu-driven interface and LCD display.
