The Gold W12 Subwoofer uses a long throw 12 inch driver with a C-CAM cone and die-cast chassis to produce a powerful and thunderous bass response, along with two 20cm auxiliary bass radiators that have been precisely tuned to assist the main driver. This allows the Monitor Audio subwoofer to reach lows of 20Hz for a truly impactful performance. A hugely powerful magnetic system, alongside a massive voice coil, delivers the power and scale to boost your home cinema experience beyond expectations.

The Monitor Audio Gold W12 sub is powered by a 600 Watt Class D amplifier, manufactured by Hypex, to provide the subwoofer with enough power and high current switching to ensure continuous delivery of high sound pressure levels. Digital Sound Processing is used to for you to be able to get the best performance out of the Gold W12 sub, filtering characteristics and running a unique Automatic Position Correction system. The APC system, designed by Monitor Audio to automatically correct the sound for different types of rooms, uses a supplied microphone to optimise the frequency response depending on the position of the subwoofer and the room acoustics. This means you can enjoy great sounding powerful bass and not be restricted by positioning of the Gold W12 Subwoofer. To give the best possible performance, a sophisticated 32-bit micro-controller monitors the sound levels to optimise the output.

The top panel of the Monitor Audio Gold W12 Subwoofer contains all the setting adjustments with an innovative controller, or the subwoofer can be controlled via Monitor Audio’s SubConnect software. The settings include four configurable pre-sets of Flat, Music, Movie and Impact, each providing a different flavour to your listening and viewing experience. For the ultimate experience, fine tuning to each mode can be made, altering the frequency, slope, trim and equaliser filters to get just the right sound. The Night Mode setting actively reduces the dynamic range of the Gold W12 sub during louder sections according to the settings, to give a more even, quieter performance more suitable for late nights.

The cabinet of the Monitor Audio Gold W12 subwoofer is constructed of rigid 25mm MDF with a 36mm front baffle for super rigid 12 inch driver mounting, and is internally well braced and damped against unwanted resonances. The Gold W12 is available in four quality premium finishes of Dark Walnut, Piano Ebony, Piano Gloss Black and Satin White.
