JL Audio E Sub series - Page 2

post #31 of 118
I don't care about output , but I care about the sound.
does anyone here had the chance to hear this yet? I know it's almost impossible, but any chance of this sounding the same as the F series?
post #32 of 118
Anyone have any updated info on these? Are they still in the works?
post #33 of 118
I'm interested as well. The "tube" between the spiders appears to be part of the VC former structure as it seems to be attached directly to the bottom of the top spider.

my local store talked to the JL audio guy last week , he waiting the E series for May this year !

Looks like the E Series is going to drop in September, almost a year after JL Audio originally projected. I'm still in line to get an E-112 for review, so barring any complications I should know something about these new subwoofers sooner than later.

Do you think it will outperforce Fathom F110?, F112?
post #37 of 118
I would say no. These are supposed to be JL's "low cost" offerings, and as such I doubt they would outperform the more expensive lines.

It would be a shame if the E series doesn't make it to market...

If it doesn't materialize, it could be any number of issues. For example, how would an E112 compare to the SVS SB-13 Ultra.

Did the original design call for a neodymium magnet?

I just called JL and they confirmed next month in september they are going to be released.

It looks like JL has some more info on their site now....

Manville;

Thank you for posting that official confirmation. I actually have a commitment already from Lucette for an E112 to review, so I imagine it should be shipping to me shortly. I currently have 3 other units for evaluation, but I'll try and get to the E112 as quickly as possible. Hopefully I can be the first to publish something for you.

As a side note... Lucette has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She is one of most professional PR folks I've come across, and has been that way since our first encounter (which was literally a year ago). She represents your brand with tremendous enthusiasm, something I can't say has been universal with some of the other folks I've dealt with from other companies.

You think I could combine an e- series with my already f112 for dual sub set-up
post #47 of 118
The E Series lives...







post #48 of 118
Sure looks nice. Any early reports on how it performs?
post #49 of 118
I'd be curious to hear how they compare with their bigger Fathom brothers....
post #50 of 118
Guess you'll just have to wait for my review... wink.gif

I generally do my reviews on a first-come-first-served basis, so I always run every new unit I get for at least a few hours after it arrives (that way I at least know it's not a DOA). The box the e112 came in had a huge gash in the side so I ran this one for an entire evening, just to ensure it wasn't damaged. I'm loath to divulge too much at this point, because I didn't even calibrate it, but I can say this much; this is no wall-flower. It definitely makes it's presence known.

1 free E112 with every 2xF212s!

Not surprised it performs, only surprised that JL didn't come out with it a few years ago.
post #53 of 118
Would a long (25-45) ft RCA run hurt the sound quality of these subs? I'm curious how much an XLR input would have cost to add to this sub. Can't wait to see how it compares to the F112.

Unlikely.

Add a balanced input yourself.

post #55 of 118
for a long RCA run > 15ft, you're better off using RG6 quad coax with RCA ends vs. normal twisted pair cable.
post #56 of 118
My other question is wether 2 - F212s (in front)

or

2 - F112s (in front) AND 2- E112s (in back) would be the better combination

Only concerned about clean output at my seat for music and HT (The Dark Knight, Transformers, LOTR, etc) other locations in room (6000 cu ft + 7 ft wide opening to 14' stairwell) are secondary



Thanks
post #57 of 118
It depends on what you're looking for and how your room is set up. Two F212s up front will give you more SPL while two F112s up front and two E112s in the rear will give you less SPL, but smoother FR. As always, this is a generalization so YMMV. I would say go with your second option of four subs if those are the only two choices. Or you can go with option #3 and go with 2 F212s, one in the front and one in the rear. That's what I would do if it were me and ID companies and DIY were out of the question.
post #58 of 118
DIY is something on the WAAAYYY back burner as I have more projects around the house than I can shake a stick at. ID companies could be considered but the fit and finish typically falls considerably short of the JL. Seaton Submersive F2 in gloss black would be a consideration but 9 times out of 10 the gloss black isn't available.

I am looking for sound quality which I will get with either setup, but since its a music and HT setup I want SPL as well for those big blockbuster action movies (that in the chest and gut feeling).

In basic terms the room is a 24x22 rectangle (28 ft along back wall) with my setup on the 24 ft wall. The E112s would only be used during HT while the F112s would be on for music and HT.
post #59 of 118
If ID is a possibility, try Funky Waves. They make good looking subs that will outperform the JLs for less. If you're still leaning towards JL then I stand by the dual F212s recommendation. One in the front and one in the back. That should give you better performance than the four sub combo of two F112s and two E112s. One F212 should equal the output of two F112s while one F212 will best two E112s. This will also make integration easier. You should leave both on for music and HT. They will work together to give you a smoother FR.

Subscribed.

Thinking about the E110 in my home office. Curious to see how it performs versus an F110.
