JL Audio Fathom f212 Subwoofer ($6,000) Review on Secrets

Thursday, November 6, 2008

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity has posted a review of the JL Audio Fathom f212 Subwoofer ($6,000). This is a sealed enclosure design with two 12″ drivers and 3,000 watts of short-term power.

Reviewer John E. Johnson, Jr. had to hire two guys to carry his this 220 lb monster (photo) into his room. After listening, he said:

Now, I listened to a lot of SACDs and watched a bunch of movies using the f212s, and even without the bench tests (which I did last), I knew this product is STELLAR. At no time did they ever give even a hint of reaching their limits.

Read the entire review, then check out John’s review of the f212’s smaller sibling, the JL Audio Fathom f113 ($3,600).
