As a follow up the JL Audio factory service of my 2 F110's in June 2020 both failed again in April 2021.
JL now provides a cap/chip kit to help the v1s, had this done in April 2021 and working for a year now.
Gemson Canada now provides this service.
I think the lowest quality parts are employed and the reason for this high rate of failures.
JL Audio products carry such a high disappointment.

Here is an actual step by step video I just uploaded to Youtube of my Fathom F113 power on capacitor repair. Thank you SOOOOOO much jdandy for creating this thread a few years ago. I hesitated to join this forum as I am quite busy, but felt like it may be good to help get the word out as there are likely many others experiencing this same issue. I also obtained most of my information for the repair form this thread and am very thankful it was "findable" on google, so felt compelled to give back to this community.
If the admins would like, it might be good for me to create a new thread dedicated to the video which can then be "stickied" as I feel this post might get lost in this long thread...

I want to humbly thank everybody in this thread as I have read each comment many times looking for information and you guys did not disappoint! Great Audiophile community here.
