F113 Price Question?

Currently I have a SB13 and a PB13 Ultra
Where are you able to get that price? I just started looking at F113's and an authorized JL dealer said no discounts allowed.

At that price, obviously via the used market. I paid around $1200 for each of my F112s, but it took years of stalking eBay and Audiogon. Seems most used units go for closer to $2000, or even more if they're in pristine condition. But they don't come up very often.

I snagged one of my F112 for $400. I told the seller how much they usually go for but he didn't care. I understood why after I saw his house and property.

That's a damn good price, very lucky. There still around $5g over here in Australia

So I upgraded from the fathom 12 version 1 to the fathom 13 version 2. The 13 definitely sounds better but the one thing I noticed was how much more pressure the 13 created. I am extremely pleased with the purchase

Is it me or are dealers now selling their version one Fathoms for some of the lowest prices I have seen? I am kind of tempted, even though I just got a good deal for a used Submersive, but the WAF for the Fathoms is so much greater.

Nah, I'm content with my lowly v1's. How about the Franin? Word on the street is the sub stork is delivering four v2's to the Franin play pen.

I sold my 5 year old F113 for that price to a member from another site, a few weeks later he sold it 2300, I'm all for turning a quick buck but damn!

Is there any specs on the new version v2's? I don't see any at their site, not I can afford one these days but would love to dream.

Nah unfortunately the sub stork just passed Australia so it ain't me
I'm content with my 4. 3 of the subs of have been replaced internally to handle our crazy power over here. One by one they all went down so had to get them fixed. Don't want to go through that again and having to do it all over again. Though I still have more he's hanging on so I'm sure he will soon need to be sent off.
