Tom.......Thank you. I would be pleased to learn that this information helped another member bring his JL Audio Fathom back to life.

Fantastic Dan, great find and fix, was ready to say Pete needs to come out for a visit to help ship the beast,but WOW you are the guy, this is a great repair story at a minimal cost.

I bet over the years many electronic failures from a simple $1-$10 part resulted in throwing away $1000s invested in gear.

You sure are helping a lot of folks

I also agree after 9 years and a decent amount of play time etc, not to mention all the power electrical storms in Florida right?

Anyway I think very high of JL and the build quality. This resolved perfect in the end thank you Dan!

They are expensive! You are not only paying for the parts! The biggest expense is determining what to fix!

Steve.......The shipping cost four times the parts. Then I only required the single 100uF/35volt capacitor which cost $0.64. Even at $9.93 it was still a tremendous bargain.

Dave.......Thanks, and you're right, high-end audio repairs can get expensive quick. I have been fortunate through the years. The few repairs I had to pay for were typically less than $400.00. This particular DIY repair was driven by the fact that I did not want to deal with packing and shipping the weight of the Fathom f113. I knew there had to be a more appealing alternative. As I understand it, JL Audio has a $300.00 flat rate repair cost for out of warranty subwoofers that includes return shipping. Add in the shipping cost to get the subwoofer to Miramar, Florida, I was looking at a total of about $450.00. Between the cost and the back breaking effort to get the Fathom shipped, plus getting the sub unpacked and back upstairs when it was returned, I decided it made more sense to try to figure out what the problem was and repair it myself. Needless to say, I am pleased as punch the end results worked in my favor. I really hope others will benefit, too.

Karl.......Are you still planning to pull the Fathom amp and replace the power supply capacitor yourself? Please keep us posted how it turns out. I have my fingers crossed for you.

I am indeed Dan. I ordered the cap with some extras from Mouser just in case and will be doing the repair in a few weeks. Thanks for checking...I will certainly keep you all posted.
