Monitor Audio Platinum PLW215 II Subwoofer

Finish:

The Monitor Audio Platinum PLW215 II is the most powerful, sophisticated and natural sounding subwoofer Monitor Audio have ever built, and so complements the flagship Platinum II range with impeccable precision. Platinum II is our flagship range of speakers – the pinnacle of our design skills. With our most advanced driver, crossover and acoustics systems, we’ve tuned the virtues that have won Monitor Audio worldwide acclaim to deliver sublime audio accuracy. 

We’re asking you to recall your last encounter with the awe-inspiring power of thunder; how its enormous natural presence is able to translate the experience of low frequency sound into a shock wave. The Monitor audio PLW215 II subwoofer will help you to re-live the air-bending effect of Mother Nature’s own subwoofer within your listening room.

Twin 15” drivers, triple-suspended for a full 4 cm of excursion and individually powered by DSP-controlled amplifiers, will deliver clean frequencies down to 16 Hz. At this level, bass arrives with a percussive impact that you feel from head to toe, seamlessly extending even the PL500 II to deliver breath-taking audio resolution beyond the limits of your audible range, but with a physical dimension that absorbs the senses. Put simply, it’s the sound of nature, vividly re-created.

Even so, all this explosive audio potency would be wasted without control. Adjust the in-room response of the PLW215 II on the top panel or via laptop using our proprietary ‘SubConnect’ software. Within this global setting, the 24 bit DSP offers four fully configurable user presets per input, including pre-set modes for Flat/Music/Movie/Impact EQ settings. If you wish to fine-tune, you can adjust frequency, slope, trim and EQ filters for each preset. There’s also a Night Mode, which actively reduces the dynamic range of louder sections according to the level you desire.
