To whom ever is interested, it seems JL Audio's site finally updated their site with the Fathoms owners manual now ready for DL....

For alot of you owners you may already have a hard copy but the unlucky few, such as myself, were waiting for the site to be updated from the invalid link 'editme.pdf'.

I have two baby girls, and I would like to say, we recently have two more additions to our family; I am now a proud father of twin boys......... F113's that is. I knew I would get a boy one way or another. Anyhow, after having my F113 for several weeks, I loved it so much I went out and bought him a brother. I think I'll go smoke a cigar now!!!

Noooo. You're supposed to type that the coax is equal to or better than the analogue. bleh

The 2 HDMI ports on the receiver are already occupa-doe, but thanks for the suggestion and input.

People people,stop being serious like this was a funeral salon. Audio and subs are about having fun and not taking things so seriously.

I buy my toys for fun,I do not care.And no I will keep them all. My Paradigm Seismic 10 and 12 are fine little subs.Even my little Sunfire D8 is a fun tiny sub,for some applications it does a great job.

If a better sub comes out...just grab it. Have fun people and do not be so irritable.

Ask yourself mortal , do you have as much displacement as me ? The answer is no unless you have a Windmere fan sub.

what other source is more important that your HD-DVD player? everything else should take a back seat to it.

Well, there have been some HDMI handshake issues with the Tosh players and it took forever to get the firmware update disc. Since the Arcam DV29 plays all media except HD and has no handshake issues I have been using that and the Moto HD-DVR in the two available HDMI slots on the Acram AVR350.


The update disc arrived this week. I might swap the components this weekend for a firmware shakedown.

Lets keep this thread active. More JL owners need to post pics of JL subs.

I keep trying to find any major and even minor fault with the f113's I have and NADA! The first subs I can call almost perfect,as nothing is perfect.

Any movie thrown,any music CD...all comes out in full glory with a foundation unheard before.I have many subs capable of deep bass output,the JL line is simply refined sub bass reproduction taken to the next level.

I'm going to try and get some pics of my setup on here in the next couple of weeks. I have all new setup with 2 F113, all new Salk speakers and a XBR2 KDS70 Sony.. I want to show them off while they're still new. Even the wife is happy with my gear!!

craigsub and others,

i have a 2300 sq' theater i use for movies only. it includes 2 dd18's co-located in a corner. i've had them one year.
if i was ready to accept the monetary loss, would two fathom 13's be a real upgrade for me? i'm not in the market, but where i live i won't be able to audition a fathom. so, your answers to this question will give me a better idea about the fathom.

thanks

Real,but slight. A bit more output down deep,SQ being very close.

I would honestly try dual f113's,as in my view losing money for a slight gain may not be worth it.

or...

Just add them to your Velo subs I go the add more subs route,but you know sanity has gone way south here.

Did you say 2300 sq ft? That is one large space to fill . I had the Fathom in for a side by side with my DD-18 and found them very close in performance. I actually prefered the DD-18 for movies and found the Fathom a bit better for music. You should check out Mark Seaton's new Submersive. Based upon early returns, it appears that multiples of these are less expensive and will out perform either the DD-18 or the Fathom.

Canuck aka TheEAR you're sounding like a JL Audio barker, it gets annoying reading it repeatedly

Most people don't know what they want...but, they're pretty sure they haven't got it. ©

The twins are coming tomorrow! twin f113s that is. My baby girl is not due until end of february. Will have to break in the subs quickly as I suspect the wife won't be too thrilled about the house rattling while the baby sleeps.

LOL....you can't be serious!

did you not notice that others posted the same feeling prior to mine? Do you actually want me to quote every post you've made in this thread to show this?

you probably are a fine fellow, and are just over-exuberant about your fathoms, which is understandable......but just cut down on the drum beating a little and you would be taken a little more seriously, 30 subs or not.

Shervin,

You need to get in the mix here (rather than just kibitzing ), why not take that short drive down to JL and hear the Fathom for yourself. Then do a little comparo with your DIY monster. Might be fun.
