Monitor Audio Anthra Subwoofers

Monitor Audio is proud to announce the launch of the new Anthra Subwoofer Series. This range introduces of high-performance powered subwoofers into the Monitor Audio portfolio. Each of the three models has been engineered with a focus on musicality and control, and through the expert application of sound acoustic knowledge and solid design principles, the Anthra Subwoofer Series delivers devastatingly deep bass with musicality and agility.

C-Cam

Strong and lightweight, the extremely rigid C-Cam cones have a much higher resistance to bending stress and therefore exhibit much greater fidelity over their entire operating range for a cleaner, clearer more precise lifelike sound presentation.

Rigid Surface Technology II (RST II), the first time it has been applied to a Monitor Audio subwoofer cone, significantly increases cone rigidity, allowing the radiating surfaces to resist the mechanical bending forces that can twist the shape of conventional driver cones, which can distort sound.

Class-D amplifiers

Behind the RST II C-Cam high-excursion driver lies a formidable amplifier capable of jaw-dropping power. With Class-D 425, 900 and a massive 1,400 Watts RMS at continuous levels with peak demand reaching 500, 1700 and a massive 2500 Watts, each amplifier ensures that the drivers are working to their optimum performance levels, no matter what the volume, allowing for an extremely accurate and clean dynamic range and a musical performance.

These subwoofers utilise an extremely thick MDF cabinet, boasting up to 1.4-inch thick (36mm) external walls and 3/4 -inch (19mm) thick internal walls with carefully configured bracing that has been acoustically optimised for extreme strength.

Connectivity

The rear panel on all models provides a comprehensive variety of connectivity options, such as RCA with LFE, to allow daisy chaining up to four Anthra subwoofers. XLR inputs for professional installation options are also included, and they too also allow daisy chaining up to four Anthra subwoofers. Further to these flexible inputs, there is a full-colour display on the rear panel with rotatory dial, to access the setup selection menu, which offers consumers the ability to not only undertake a quick setup procedure, but also to connect and integrate any Anthra subwoofer into a wider home cinema system with consummate ease.

Maestro Unite App

Via the in-house-designed Maestro Unite setup app, users can optimally configure any Anthra subwoofer to their individual tastes and system requirements. And if multiple subwoofers are used within a single system, it allows the same settings to be delivered across them all simultaneously.

The series comprises three stand-alone subs, capable of being used on their own or in groups, enabling users to fill even the largest spaces with gloriously deep, exceptional controlled bass.

The Anthra W15 is the largest subwoofer within the series, and it features a 15” (38cm) Rigid Surface Technology II (RST II) C-CAM high-excursion driver powered by a massively powerful Class-D 1,400 Watt amplifier. The Anthra W12 sees a 12” (30cm) driver powered by a Class D 900 Watt amplifier, while the smallest subwoofer in the series, the Anthra W10 sees 425 Watts driving a 10” (25cm) cone.
