JL Audio Subwoofers Factory Photo Tour
by Nyal MellorFebruary 25, 2011
Soundstage Network have published a photographic tour of the JL Audio facilities in Miramar, Florida. JL Audio make nearly all parts of their fabulous home audio subwoofers in house and have fanatical attention to detail, as can be seen from the shots taken in different parts of their factory.
The first shot I've selected shows a JL Audio Gotham cabinet being hand finished. The cabinet is actually constructed from fiberglass rather than MDF and has moulded strengthening ribs.

JL Audio, the manufacturer of the superb Fathom F110, F112, F113, F212 and Gotham subwoofers showed their new E112 subwoofer at CES. I have seen this sub before, at CI Expo, a custom integrator event that was held in Berkeley this year. But this is the first time I had my camera with me to take some photos!
Velodyne announced their replacement for their premium Digital Drive subwoofer line towards the tail end of last year. The original Digital Drive subwoofers are now getting a bit long in the tooth and with the recent barnstorming entrance of JL Audio into the home subwoofer market an update was definitely required.
