The JL Audio Gotham v2 - Home Audio Subwoofer combines a state-of-the-art JL Audio subwoofer driver and electronics/amplifier package within a highly optimized enclosure to deliver an exceptional listening experience in your Home Theater or Home Audio System.
The subwoofer drivers in the Gotham v2 subwoofer system are capable of exceptional linear excursion without distress or audible distortion. These exceptional drivers enable the Gotham v2 to reproduce powerful low-frequency events with stunning impact and unprecedented accuracy.
Derived from JL Audio’s legendary W7 design platform, the Gotham v2 drivers offer peak-to-peak excursion capabilities well in excess of 3 inches (76mm) to comfortably handle the dynamics of the most demanding program material. To get the most from this long excursion driver platform, a tremendous amount of controlled power is needed.
JL Audio's electronics engineering team conducted an intense analysis of typical program material and its dynamic demands in order to balance current draw and actual output power requirements relative to the system’s impedance characteristics. After careful study, precisely engineered switching amplifiers employing patented feedback technology were created to take full advantage of each driver’s full excursion envelope.
Compared to their predecessors, Gotham v2’s have been improved with all new digital signal processing and a 20% increase in amplifier power, further enhancing their outstanding dynamic capabilities. The beautiful cabinet enclosing the workings of your Gotham v2 is also the result of careful engineering. To contain the pressures created by the Gotham v2driver, JL Audio has utilised a massive, fiberglass construction with extensive internal bracing features and advanced assembly techniques.
Your listening room is the other enclosure that affects the way your bass will sound. All rooms create a specific sonic signature, which must be effectively managed to achieve well-balanced low frequency performance. To help properly integrate your subwoofers with your room’s acoustics, all Gotham v2 subwoofers employ a powerful, Digital Automatic Room Optimization (D.A.R.O.) system. This system deploys eighteen bands of digital equalization to tame room acoustics and deliver spine-tingling sub-bass accuracy.
