I hate to say my brand new JL Audio Fathom V112 v2 died suddenly! I don’t know what’s the issue, We had power loss for 10 mins, After that everything is worked! Except JL sub, I do have wattbox power surge! And on the same outlet other devices connected everything is working! With in 30 days it’s dead 😞, I reached out to my dealer he said fuse might gone, but fuse looks good and also my dealer sent new fuses nothing works no power at all! Dealer said he sent email to JL let’s see what JL says and etc! I am afraid about it’s high expensive product, Do they really send replacement brand new one? (or) jut an refurbished ones! My dealer says this is first time which he is seeing JL sub has issue like this! So he don’t know the reason, Other brands send just an replacement amplifier, where dealer can replace for their customers! Anybody encountered same type of issues? I should have bought SVS SB 16 ultra! But my dealer says JL audio is better than SVS! I just went by his recommendation. I am disappointed about JL quality check.[IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/frown.gif[/IMG]

Sorry to hear about your trouble! I have not had any trouble like that with my JL subs. Are any of the lights on your sub on? Usually there's a green light under "master" below Input Mode to the left of the volume knob.

I keep a 20 amp surge suppressor on mine. Sounds like a surge on power up fried a board.

How old is it?

Thank you! No green light turning on! And Which is the best single outlet surge protector helps? I do have Furman elite 20 PFI, But from my sub power conditioner almost 15 feet away, So I used wattbox single outlet surge protector connected to outlet, I have 2 JL fathom112v2’s both are connected with wattbox single outlet surge protector and one sub perfectly fine, BUT second one is died!

Any word when these might get completely revamped? Just look so dated these days IMO.

Try the Panamax 20 amp protector if you have a dedicated 20 amp line .

You,at need a plug conveyor from. Mono price if the 20 amp circuit has a normal outlet. Code for 20 amps requires a different one and the Panamax 20 amp conforms to code. There is also a 15 amp version.

JL back to us this morning with this “The Fathom subs have a software feature that if the unit loses power (either a power outage or unplugging the unit) and the power switch is set to On or Auto, it goes into protect mode. To get it out of protect mode, we need to move the power switch to off and then back to the On/Auto position.” I tried this! But no luck no power on.

Does anyone here have one or two JL fathom113v2? There seems to be no thread for the JL fathom113v2, however this is the closest I could find to one. At 13", which reaches down to 19Hz, though not subsonic; would seem like it would have a decent performance quality for movies. As for music, the 13" driver; though may not be as light as a 12" driver, is possibly lighter than a 15" driver.

Would this thread be ok to talk about the JL fathom113v2, or should someone create a JL fathom113v2 thread?

Movies must be OAR, sports and movies must also have 5.1 audio, No EE or NO SALE!

Here's the thread for the F113
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/113-s...3-sub-239.html

Some people have been told by JL that the F112 is a bit better for music.

It probably is since the driver is a little bit bigger. At the same time I think it's a excellent compromise for both music and movies.

By the way, thanks for the info about the F113 thread!

Looks like JL Had another price increase. The F112v2 went up another $300 from $3700 to $4000 now. of course we kn ow nobody pays list price but regardless the discount price is goining to be more now. I have a friend who is I the process of purchasing 2 sets of the 8' in-wall subs and he is probably going to have a canary since it is the second increase so far this year. I personally love my dual F112v2 which I purchased before either of the two price increases, I was considering a third but I may buy a new TV instead.

I imagine if you asked, they would point to the tariffs. On top of that, they sell through dealers. They are a real company, employees with health insurance and buildings with overhead, customer service, then they have to make some money on it, then their dealers have to make money on it. I think it's getting really hard to be competitive in anything but a luxury market for a US based builder that isn't a mom-and-pop shop. The volumes are so low on this stuff too.

That said, they fairly recently brought on a guy from B&W to run their home audio division (https://www.cepro.com/article/doug_henderson_jl_audio), so maybe we'll see some more developments in that area?
