JL Audio Expands Line of Architectural Audio Solutions with NEW Fathom 8-Inch In-wall and In-ceiling Subwoofer Systems

Miramar, FL – December 11, 2018 – JL Audio, an innovator in high-end audio solutions, now shipping an 8-inch version of their Fathom® IWS in-wall subwoofer systems with additional enclosure option for in-ceiling applications. The new 8-inch Fathom® IWS and ICS systems join a previous model, with a 13.5-inch driver, in the Fathom® IWS lineup. "We are excited about the potential of the 8-inch in-wall and in-ceiling subwoofer solutions in our growing line of architectural audio solutions," said Andy Oxenhorn, President of JL Audio. "These models have a very small, low-profile grille that will please customers looking for a visually unobtrusive solution that delivers true JL Audio sub-bass performance." The 8-inch Fathom® IWS and ICS systems are packaged in compact enclosures that utilize extensive architectural features aimed at improving rigidity. A unique port design vents through a slot located at the perimeter of the driver mount, to enhance efficiency and low-bass output. Inside the enclosure is an all-new, long-excursion, 8-inch thin-line woofer, built specifically by JL Audio for these products. Each 8-inch Fathom® IWS and ICS system is driven by a rack-mountable amplifier with up to 600 watts of clean power, programmed specifically for each system. A complete set of Fathom® signal processing features is also onboard, including a powerful, 18-band Digital Automatic Room Optimization (D.A.R.O.) system, and high-pass crossover outputs, all accessible via an easy-to-use, menu-driven interface and LCD display. "The rise in popularity of architectural speakers has integrators looking for solutions that perform like traditional products. The IWS and ICS-108 and 208 prove that you don't need to lower your expectations when selecting an in-wall or in-ceiling subwoofer solution." added Manville Smith, VP of Marketing.
