APC for the perfect response in your room
APC (Automatic Position Correction) is a unique Monitor Audio technology that uses a built-in microphone and test tones to optimise the subwoofer's response. At the touch of a button the frequency response is ideally tailored for your room - so no more excessive bass 'boom'.
12 inch cone matched with 500 watt amp for huge bass
When it comes to producing a cinematic bass that you can truly 'feel', little can beat the combination of a large bass cone and a powerful amp. The Monitor Audio Silver W12 (6G) has them both. The ultra long throw bass cone easily moves large accounts of air for a bass response that effortlessly recreates the most dynamic soundtracks and music. Powered by a 500 watt, Class-D digital amp, high power is always available in an instant.
Highly controlled sound
As well as being powerful, the Silver W12 (6G) is also highly controlled. Using a C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) cone that's rigid yet light gives a responsive bass. The triple suspended driver gives ideal linearity for perfect control - even when the cone is fully extended.
Three pre-set EQ modes
With Music, Movie and Impact modes you can easily change the characteristics of the subwoofer to match your mood. For the most subtle sound, choose Music. A more dynamic sound is had with the Movie mode, making it ideal for the most intense action movies. If you're in party mode or really don't like the neighbours, then switch to Impact for the most powerful sound possible!
High quality finish
Constructed from 25mm MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) and heavily braced, the W12 (6G) is built to resist cabinet vibrations. Finished in a selection of luxury finishes, this is one subwoofer that doesn't need to be hidden out of sight.
With the perfect combination of poise and power, the Monitor Audio W12 (6G) has it all.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FLACfan22 from Sound is mind blowing, so is build quality/finish I was reticent to replace my 27-year-old Yamaha sub but the SW12 is a real step up and complements the Monitor Audio Bronze 500 well. The APC worked perfectly for the room setup. The sound reproduction is outstanding and the build quality is impressive. The Power Mode in Auto does not detect the input signal's absence correctly 2 out of 20 times on powerdown sequence. I do not want the power amp to stay on unnecessarily though.To that effect I am building a IR remote control unit to control the power mode via the Trigger Input instead. Also the status LED (EQ) was flashing occasionally during normal operation (though did not affect the audio output at all). Emailed Monitor Audio for comment but regrettably they did not respond. Apart from this minor technical flaw, I am very happy with the sub and very impressed with Monitor Audio products.
