J L Audio Subwoofers
Engineered and built to perform like no other.
You won't find an off-the-shelf woofer in any JL Audio home subwoofer because designing and building superior subwoofer drivers lies at the core of our passion for audio.
The company has developed proprietary electromagnetic and suspension analysis systems and invested heavily in state-of-the-art testing and manufacturing systems. JL Audio's intense focus on research has borne subwoofer driver designs widely considered as reference standards for linear displacement and dynamic stability.
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. Simply put, Fathom is the compact subwoofer system for those who enjoy demanding program material and won't settle for compromises.
The challenges associated with designing a high-output subwoofer can be quite daunting. In most cases, designers sacrifice low-frequency extension or output capability to keep the design of the enclosure small. This is not the case with JL Audio subwoofers! The woofer used in all of JL Audio's is entirely of their own design, and is completely manufactured by them in Miramar Florida! In fact, the ten inch woofer utilized has seven patents in the design alone! All of the controls for adjusting the JL Audio F-110 subwoofer are conveniently located up front. No more kneeling down with a flashlight and using a mirror to make adjustments! In addition, there is an exclusive Automatic Room Optimization circuit or ARO for short. ARO allows the user to easily and reliably calibrate the subwoofer to ensure a smooth and accurate response, even in challenging rooms! It is as simple as plugging in the supplied laboratory-grade microphone and pressing one button! The subwoofer takes over and does the rest! The 900 watt RMS amplifier used in this subwoofer is again, entirely of their own design, which features a large toroidal transformer and a patented circuit to enhance control and fidelity.

The system effectively allows for smooth, well-balanced sub-bass from a variety of locations that may have been less than ideal. Incredibly powerful and accurate bass that will enhance the performance of any audio or home-theater system.

The new JL Audio E-Sub series 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, the E-Sub deliver a level of performance that belies their compact dimensions and cements their value.Every E-Series Subwoofer 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.
It has always been said achieving accurate and deep satisfying bass has always been elusive for many subwoofer manufactures out in the market today. Sure; most subs will deliver a cool effect when playing the latest blockbuster film on Blu-Ray. The explosions of an interstellar battle cruiser can sure sound exciting enough; however when the same subwoofer is asked to play music; the enviable let down occurs, until now; usher in the subwoofer offering from the bass gurus at JL Audio. Introducing the new E Series subwoofer, the E-110 and E-112.
JL Audio took the audio world by storm with the Fathom Series of subwoofers, with many accolades, (and awards), from virtually every highly respected magazine publication. The woofers utilized in JL Audio subwoofers are not "off the shelf from that guy" drivers. The woofers used in JL Audio subwoofers are exclusively manufactured in JL Audio’s own factory located in sunny Miramar Florida. In fact, their woofers currently have over seven patents on the driver alone!
JL Audio not wanting to rest on their laurels, decided to create another subwoofer line, so now everyone can enjoy musical and accurate bass, with gut-wrenching power and output that everyone loves!Instead of taking the easy way out and simply "reverse engineer" their Fathom line to fit into a price point. They decided to create another entirely different, (and equally impressive), woofer for the new E-Series line. JL Audio wanted to shake up the industry and make the best subwoofer they could possibly manufacture, but at a lower price. How did they do that? Let’s take a look.
The DMA long excursion driver in the E-110 and E-112 is an entirely new driver that took JL Audios engineers many years to develop. This driver offers nearly three inches of excursion in a sealed cabinet that delivers the most accurate bass response, compared to other manufactures that will cheat by porting or using passive radiators. By using a sealed cabinet, JL Audio was able to optimize and keep the woofer under control, without the issues of using ports that normally create unwanted noise with air moving in and out of the cabinet. Using a sealed cabinet does have one drawback however, it is less efficient, JL Audio has addressed this by utilizing a powerful 1200 watt digital switching amplifier. Digital switching amplifiers when implemented correctly have many advantages of high power, and efficiency, and they do not have any issues with overheating; perfect for this application!
Every adjustment for the E-110 and E-112is located right on top of the cabinet for easy access for fine-tuning the subwoofer for optimum performance. No more getting on your knees with a flashlight and hoping that you are moving the right control for the proper adjustment. Many companies will take the easy way out by attaching the amplifier and crossover controls on the back panel to save costs. Not with JL Audio!
The new JL Audio E-110 and E-112 subwoofer rewrites the rules about what is possible with high-quality subwoofer bass performance for both Home-Theater and stereo music reproduction. This subwoofer would make for a perfect choice to greatly add a whole new dimension to your music and improve the bass performance of virtually loudspeaker system. The JL Audio subwoofers integrate seamlessly to give you the impression that the bass is coming from the loudspeakers, not the subwoofer itself. This is the ultimate compliment that you can give a sub-bass system, and the JL Audio subwoofer lineup does this beautifully! We have both the new E Series, as well as, the Fathom series of subwoofers on display here at The Stereo Shop, come on down and prepare to be amazed what a high quality subwoofer can do to any system!
