JL Audio announced the E-110 (10-inch) and E-112 (12-inch) powered home subwoofers built with new drivers for serious audio enthusiasts. The E-Sub drivers are purpose-engineered for this product, offering amazing excursion and low distortion, thanks to JL Audio's DMA motor technology. A radical suspension design with widely spaced dual spiders offers tremendous stability as the driver's cone moves over its very long excursion range. In a stroke of engineering elegance, the steel front mounting flange of the driver also forms the front baffle of the finished product, creating an incredibly strong structure.
To power these innovative drivers, JL Audio engineered a new switching amplifier, featuring a regulated, switching power supply. This approach helps keep the amplifier section compact and efficient while delivering the necessary power to fully exercise the subwoofer driver's performance envelope.
The input and signal processing sections have been designed for compatibility with modern multi-channel systems as well as traditional 2-channel audio systems. Inputs are provided for unbalanced line-level signals or speaker level signals. The crossover is a true 2-way design, with a low-pass filter feeding the subwoofer's amplifier and a high-pass filtered signal exiting via a pair of dedicated RCA-type jacks.
