Miramar, FL–September 14, 2006–CEDIA Expo 2006 marks the debut of JL Audio’s newest powered home audio subwoofer, the Fathom f110. As the smallest unit in the Fathom lineup, the f110 creates new opportunities for integrating outstanding low-frequency performance in smaller spaces (or wherever a small subwoofer is desired). The total package occupies only 2 cubic feet of space with a footprint of only 1.5 square feet, including the grille, making it ideal for home theater systems requiring an unobtrusive subwoofer.
Like its larger siblings, the f112 and f113, the new Fathom f110 features a proprietary long-excursion subwoofer driver powered by an advanced switching amplifier to deliver outstanding output. Both the driver and the amplifier feature patented JL Audio technologies aimed at improving low frequency fidelity and dynamic capability. A comprehensive set of signal-processing tools is included to aid in sonic integration, including a fully variable low-pass filter with variable slope, polarity control, variable phase control and Extreme Low Frequency (E.L.F.) trim filter. As with all Fathom models, the signal processing features are accessible on the front of the cabinet, greatly facilitating system setup and tuning. The f110’s Input options include balanced and unbalanced connections as well as a slave balanced output which allows multiple f110’s to be controlled from a single unit.
JL Audio’s exclusive A.R.O. (Automatic Room Optimization) system is also included. This advanced processing system uses the included microphone and an automated analysis routine to address the listening environment’s acoustics. The A.R.O. system can make difficult rooms, or less than ideal subwoofer placements, deliver exceptional quality bass.
The Fathom f110 will be available in High-Gloss Black or Satin Black finishes.
Pricing and availability dates will be announced at CEDIA Expo 2006.
