The W200 is a powder keg for bass, primed with the precision-crafted ordinance of twin drivers and a potent 220W DSP controlled Class D amplifier. It powers a side-firing 10” long throw C-CAM bass driver equipped with a huge, dual stack magnet system. Complementing the active driver is a 10” Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR), the two working in tandem to generate the output and scale normally associated with ported designs, but with the fast accurate transient response of a sealed box. Select ‘music’, ‘movie’ and ‘impact’ pre-set response curves using a back-panel switch.

For open environments sound quality can be further enhanced through the use of a sealed ABR (Auxiliary Bass Radiator). The ABR works like a piston moving back and forth generated by the movement of the air via the motion of the mid/bass driver inside the sealed cabinet. This makes the ABR ultimately act like a conventional port resulting in superior low frequency punch and extra penetration whilst keeping the elements at bay.
Refined over many years by Monitor Audio, Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium is used as a driver cone material for all our speaker designs from the mid-market models up. Originally developed by the aerospace industry for jet engine components, C-CAM's properties are ideal for loudspeaker cones being extremely rigid, yet light enough to yield high overall efficiency. C-CAM bass drivers are able to resist the bending distortion imposed by sudden and extreme bass excursions to reproduce very clean, deep and dynamic bass frequencies. Conventional cone materials are more likely to flex in operation, producing a significant level of audible distortion.
MASS Review in Home Cinema Choice Magazine
Mark Craven, editor of Home Cinema Choice magazine, is not one to hand over awards lightly. He’s seduced however by the MASS package: perfectly formed and priced, and complete with a mule’s kick in the bass department. He says “put into action with film soundtracks, the MASS system simply shines…the sound is crisp, detailed and utterly immersive. Overall, Monitor Audio’s newest product lineup is the perfect partner for a mid-range AVR in a living room cinema setup. Everything from the build quality and design to movie and (sub assisted) music performance impresses.”

Small system, big sound, massive achievement.
It shouldn’t be possible for such room-filling sound to come from so space-friendly a system – yet it does! The experts at What Hi-Fi? have experienced a few unlikely outcomes in their time, but nothing as downright astonishing as the performance of our latest miracle of precision engineering: the highly bijou MASS AV system. And they’ve taken it to their hearts, awarding it five stars and price-class winner at this year’s What Hi-Fi? Awards. The team says:
'What struck us immediately was the sense of scale and power - for such petite speakers, we were blown away by the big and confident output of sound. And they’re certainly capable of filling a decent-sized room as well; our testing rooms were engulfed in seamless, controlled soaring dynamics.'
