Your first look will tell you that you are looking at something special... your first listen will confirm it beyond a shadow of a doubt. The beauty of the Gotham® v2 extends well beyond its exotic design and exceptional craftsmanship, aiming right at the emotional core of musical and cinematic enjoyment. This is a subwoofer system with limits that exceed the needs of the typical home theater application, delivering a weight and integrity of reproduction that can only come from a system that is always in control. Its allure lies as much in its ability to convey subtleties as in its prodigious output capabilities. It is simply devastating.
“This subwoofer really leaves former subwoofer-hater Jonathan Valin at a loss for words. It is so good at what it does—which is deliver power, clarity, color, texture, and sheer oomph in the bottom octaves — that he’s never heard anything that can beat it in the bass, either in a subwoofer or a full-range floorstander.” - The Absolute Sound, Editors’ Choice Awards
Each Gotham® enclosure takes over two weeks to produce in our Miramar, Florida factory, passing through multiple phases of fabrication and finishing.
The body of the enclosure is molded in solid fiberglass with proprietary damping technologies and carefully engineered internal bracing to create a highly inert structure. Wall thickness exceeds 1-inch (25 mm) and requires precision CNC equipment to perform secondary machining of all openings before our skilled craftsmen prepare, finish and hand polish each one to the highest furniture-grade standards.
Final assembly, inspection and testing are carried out in a “clean room” environment to ensure that the Gotham’s function is every bit as impressive as its form. No other subwoofer in the world is built like this... and no other subwoofer performs like it.
Separate woofer and control panel grilles allow control access without removing the larger grille and also offer a choice of three distinct visual presentations.
With the included, laboratory-grade calibration microphone, JL Audio’s exclusive D.A.R.O. technology uses a powerful on-board DSP to automatically optimize the subwoofer’s in-room frequency response. This leads to a superb listening experience, no matter where the subwoofer is placed.
Each Gotham® v2 houses two of JL Audio’s highest-technology subwoofer drivers and features extreme excursion capability, with outstanding linearity and dynamic stability.
Gotham® v2 is driven by a proprietary Class D amplifier capable of generating a mind-numbing 4,500 watts of clean, controlled power.
Deploying multiple subwoofers will improve the smoothness, power and consistency of the bass in your listening space.
The CR-1 Active Subwoofer Crossover is the ultimate tool for subwoofer integration in two-channel systems. It also acts as a bridge for sharing subwoofers between a two-channel and multi-channel audio system.
