The Fathom f113v2 is a heavyweight subwoofer capable of filling the most demanding rooms with powerful low-frequency output and reference-class sound quality. The combination of an ultra-long throw W7 13.5-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®, the f113v2 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. 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® as a slave unit.

''I felt and heard the jaw-tightening mass of the bass-drum strokes... They burst into my listening room as dense, concussive thuds with clean, defined leading edges."
''What’s really incredibly phenomenal about the f212 is the range, and the total control over that range that it has. It was masterfully awe-inspiring. And now I have to say that I sincerely hate the folks at JL Audio because they have forever ruined any pleasure I might have enjoyed with any other subwoofer.''
"The Fathom f212 has raised the performance quality of my audio system, and my enjoyment of it, to much higher levels" "The Fathom f212 belongs in the top-rank–Class A–of Recommended Components."
