The f212v2 is the ultimate expression of the Fathom 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®, the f212v2 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.

''...it is simply astonishing how much of a perceived difference that touch of ultra-low end makes in overall realism (both in the bass and in the perceived clarity of the midrange), without any of the usual penalties paid in midband veiling or midbass overlap."
"...the Gothams and the CR-1 are tickets to a full-range bliss you've never before experienced, because, in my own experience, it's never before been available at this level of unalloyed satisfaction. Both the Gotham subs and JL's CR-1 crossover, obviously, get my highest, most unqualified, most enthusiastic recommendation. I just wish all of you could hear them!"
"The Gotham g213 produces state-of-the-art bass that will improve the highest of high-end systems. I've heard no other subwoofer that can match it."
