Monitor Audio Silver W-12 500W Sub-Woofer in Gloss

The new Silver W12 active subwoofer introduces a number of new design developments housed in a compact high power unit. A new 500 watt DSP controlled amplifier utilises advanced switch-mode power conversion techniques and superior processing to increase dynamic control and deliver far greater head-room. The W12’s sealed box construction ensures that this potent unity of power and control delivers tight, fast and tuneful bass all the way down to a thunderous 22Hz in a typical room set up. The sealed box, front-firing driver design makes for easy installation and EQ where close proximity to a room boundary may be necessary.

The W-12 also features Monitor Audio’s proprietary and innovative APC (Automatic Position Correction) system, which uses a microphone and test tones to identify detrimental room modes and correct frequency response for the room and position automatically. This simple and quick process will ensure perfectly optimised seismic bass quality in any room.

-Ultra long throw 12” driver featuring concave ‘dished’ C-CAM® cone.
-Triple suspended driver for ultimate linearity, ensuring control at high power and long excursions.
-Oversized black anodized 3” driver voice coil provides high power handling and low distortion.
-Powerful 500 watt RMS Class-D amplifier ensures instantaneous high current delivery.
