JL Audio Fathom® IWS-SYS-108
In-Wall Subwoofer System with Single 8-inch Subwoofer, 300 watts
Born from the same groundbreaking technologies used to develop our free-standing powered subwoofers, the Fathom® IWS in-wall subwoofer systems deliver remarkable bass performance, while remaining largely concealed within most home audio/theater environments.
The 8-inch Fathom® IWS systems are smaller and easier to integrate than our larger in-wall Fathoms, fitting in all standard, 16-inch, on-center stud openings, and operating through very small grilles. These grilles accommodate all common drywall thicknesses, and can be easily painted to match the wall.
Engineered With Care:
The subwoofer enclosures utilize extensive architectural features aimed at improving rigidity while keeping a very low profile and minimal wall thickness. 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 a long-excursion, 8-inch thin-line woofer, built to exacting standards by JL Audio for the Fathom® IWS products.
Each 8-inch Fathom® IWS system is powered by a rack-mountable amplifier, capable of generating up to 600 watts of clean power and can drive up to two enclosures. A complete set of Fathom® signal processing features is also onboard, including our powerful, 18-band Digital Automatic Room Optimization (D.A.R.O.) system, all managed via an easy-to-use, menu-driven interface and LCD display. Note: D.A.R.O. functionality requires optional calibration microphone (sold separately).
The IWS-108 System fits 2" x 4" wall studs or larger. Consult your Authorized JL Audio Dealer for specific application information.
