Get to know this product.

The Silver W-12’s over-specified driver assembly employs a hugely powerful magnet system and massive voice coil to deliver immense power from the compact sealed cabinet. A heavy-duty diecast basket not only holds the massive system rigidly together, but also assists thermal sinking to keep the driver cool.

For the Silver W-12 subwoofer Monitor Audio specified a 500-watt Class-D amplifier and power-supply module from highly-regarded amplifier specialist Hypex; this provides incredible headroom and utilises advanced switch-mode power conversion techniques. A powerful DSP has been employed to deliver the best performance and filter characteristics, while running the unique APC (Automatic Position Correction) system. The APC is a completely in-house development, designed to automatically correct for room modes. It uses a microphone and test tones to calculate detrimental room modes and correct frequency response, optimising it for the room and position. This is a simple and quick automated process that is a complete revelation to the installer and ensures the user can enjoy the subwoofer quality without positioning restrictions.

At the heart of the Silver W-12 lies a sophisticated 32-bit micro-controller, monitoring performance thousands of times per second, ensuring the system can deliver the best possible bass. It will never become over-driven or distorted, even at maximum power.

  • Ultra long-throw 12-inch driver featuring ‘dished’ C-CAM cone
  • Triple suspension for ultimate linearity ensuring control at high power and excursions
  • Oversized black anodised 3-inch voice coil which provides high power-handling and low distortion
  • Powerful 500 W RMS Class-D amplifier with switching power supply provides instantaneous delivery of high current when required
  • DSP processing with all control features and crossover performed digitally
  • Automatic Position Correction plus automatic room setup feature using microphone for simple system optimisation
  • USB for firmware updates
  • Three preset EQ mode settings (Music, Movie, Impact)
  • This product is now available to use with home theatre design software, The CEDIA Designer.
