Monitor Audio's new subwoofer line "Anthra" – independent from any speaker series by the brand – consists of three models: W10, W12 and W15, named according to the size of their central woofer in inches. The W15, as the flagship of the trio, is said to offer 1400W of continuous power, the mid-range W12 900W, and the smallest of the three, the W10, 425W; each Class-D. All three subwoofers come with thick MDF enclosures, which, along with bracing, are said to offer high stability.
Aiming to deliver a precise, dynamic and deep bass, Monitor Audio has also optimized the drivers. Thus, the subwoofers work with the "C-CAM" membranes, which are also found in other speakers from the manufacturer, and are supposed to provide stiffness and durability, among other things. Monitor Audio's "Rigid Surface Technology II" is also included, which is supposed to further increase stiffness as well as reduce distortion.
To control the subwoofers, the manufacturer offers the app "MaestroUnite", which is supposed to bring many configuration options, including DSP. In addition, all models carry an LCD screen on the back, via which the setup of the subwoofers is available. As inputs, they carry both RCA and XLR; pairing up to four Anthra subwoofers is also said to be possible.
Monitor Audio's new Anthra subwoofer series is expected to be available from September 2023 in black and white. The MSRPs are as follows in Germany: the Anthra W10 is said to cost around €2150, the Anthra W12 around €2450 and the Anthra W15 comes for around €3200.
