JL Audio Gotham g213v2 - Dual 13.5inch Powered Subwoofer
The Gotham® v2 is the maximum, unfettered expression of JL Audio’s deep commitments to beautiful design, exceptional build quality and truly great audio.
Whether your listening goals are musical or cinematic, the Gotham® v2 delivers an intoxicating combination of texture, tightness, dynamics and extension.
The Gotham® v2’s massive fiberglass-composite enclosure is hand-finished in luxurious gloss-black and complemented by machined aluminum and stainless steel accents. The look and feel is elegant and spectacular at the same time. More importantly, this beautiful cabinet houses a pair of JL Audio’s highest-technology subwoofer drivers, each with over four inches of peak-to-peak excursion capability. The Gotham® v2 amplifier offers a mind-numbing 4,500 watts of clean, controlled power, while a completely new signal processing system, employs DSP for all functions. This system includes a more powerful, digital version of our automatic room optimization technology, with 18 bands of response correction to flawlessly integrate the Gotham® v2 into your room’s acoustics.
As always, listening to a Gotham® v2 reveals an entirely new dimension of subwoofer performance... a dimension so satisfying that listening to lesser subwoofers will forever become an act of compromise.
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.
A luxurious, handcrafted gloss-black finish is complemented by machined aluminum and stainless steel accents for a look and feel that fits perfectly with the finest home furnishings. More importantly, the beautiful cabinet houses a pair of JL Audio's highest-technology subwoofer drivers. When demanded by program material, the Gotham's prodigious switching amplifier can deliver 4500 watts of RMS power, to take full advantage of the twin drivers' four inches of peak-to-peak excursion capability. This ensures that the Gotham can breeze through material that makes other subwoofers go into clipping, limiting or distress.
A very complete set of signal processing features is easily accessible on the top surface of the Gotham. These include a highly flexible low-pass filter, variable phase, switchable polarity, e.l.f. trim and our powerful Digital Automatic Room Optimization (D.A.R.O.) system. A calibrated microphone is included for the D.A.R.O. system. Input connections are made via unbalanced RCA connections or balanced Neutrik® combo XLR/TRS jacks. Also included is an XLR output to connect a second Gotham® v2 as a slave unit.
Listening to a Gotham® v2 reveals an entirely new dimension of subwoofer performance... a dimension so satisfying that listening to lesser subwoofers will forever become an act of compromise.
