JL Audio Introduces the New Fathom® IWS-SYS-108 & 208 In-Wall Subwoofers.



Born from the same groundbreaking technologies used to develop JL Audio’s 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 JL Audio’s larger in-wall Fathoms, fitting in all standard, 16-inch, on-centre stud openings, and operating through very small grilles. The grille’s effortless design accommodates all common drywall thicknesses, and can be easily painted to match the wall.

The subwoofer enclosures utilise 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 driven by a rack-mountable amplifier with up to 600 watts of clean power, programmed specifically for each system. 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, and high-pass crossover outputs, all accessible via an easy-to-use, menu-driven interface and LCD display.

The IWS-108 & IWS-208 System fits 2" x 4" wall studs or larger.
