Underpinning the drama and scintillating musical vitality of a Platinum multichannel speaker system is the PLW-15, a range matching sub-bass engine endowed with all the quality, virtuosity and excellence that defines the marque. Capable of releasing the deepest frequencies recorded on disc, the PLW-15 will drive performances of music and film with an utterly breathtaking authority. Its 15" (381mm) long-throw C-CAM driver is triple suspended in a rigid die-cast alloy chassis. A massive double-stack magnet motor system with a 4" (101.6mm) voice coil provides the ultimate linearity and control required to reproduce the clean seismic 16Hz tones that you feel more than you hear.
Powered by the staggering continuous force of 1000 watts from the onboard Class D amplifier, the driver has the speed and integrity to complement the performance of its range counterparts, creating the foundation for a seamless wideband sound field, rich in natural dynamism, texture and tonality. With the convenience of remote control, the PLW-15's subterranean potency can be fine-tuned to the loudspeaker system using sophisticated digital filters, and to room acoustics with a range of advanced DSP adjustments, including a ten band parametric EQ and no fewer than four preset EQ positions. Its response can be optimised to meet the specific demands of music and film sound through individual input settings.
The PLW-15's talent for room-matching is also expressed by the lustre of its beautifully compact curvaceous cabinet, resplendent in a choice of Platinum veneers and radially braced and damped to enhance structural integrity. Blending power and finesse with superb aesthetics, the PLW-15 introduces a sensational new dimension to the experience of sound in the home, which celebrates the raw energy and compelling quality of genuinely deep bass.

Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium is a material originally developed by the aerospace industry for jet engine components. Its properties are ideal for loudspeaker cones being extremely rigid, yet light enough to yield high overall efficiency. In manufacture, aluminium/magnesium alloy undergoes a three-stage stress-relieving process to remove surface deformation and molecular weakness. Once formed, the alloy cone is subjected to a high temperature anodic coating process in which a layer of pure ceramic alumina is depleted onto its surfaces to a depth of 50 microns, producing a completely rigid sandwich of alloy and heat-dissipating ceramic material.
Conventional cones are liable to flex or twist in operation, producing a significant level of audible distortion. C-CAM cones have a much higher resistance to bending stress and therefore exhibit much greater fidelity over their entire operating range. C-CAM tweeters and woofers share an audible consistency producing a smooth transition of frequencies and a sense of realism and cohesion in the soundstage.

Developed for Monitor Audio by Autoglym, the world-renowned expert in high quality car care and valeting products, SheerBrilliance Lacquer Polish is scientifically and specifically formulated to restore the deep rich lustre of all high gloss lacquer speaker finishes with a single easy application. By using SheerBrilliance Lacquer Polish, you'll experience the sumptuous 'as new' brilliance of your beloved speakers all over again!
First developed by Autoglym for selection by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd, Jaguar Cars Ltd, McLaren Cars Ltd, Morgan Cars Ltd, Bentley and Porsche, Monitor Audio's Leather Protector and Cleaner will give you the excellent results that leading brands expect. Both contain specialised cleaning and deodorizing agents designed to clean and freshen a leather baffle. Unlike harsher detergents the Cleaner has a neutral pH formulation and will not remove the essential oils, which keep leather supple and prevent surface cracking. The Protector is a carefully blended emulsion containing soaps and natural oils to protect and moisturise. Regular treatment will help preserve the natural appearance and characteristics of leather. To be used in conjunction with our Leather Cleaner on stained or soiled leather.
Custom-developed for Monitor Audio and utilising advanced simulation technology, the new De-Tox CD will help you to run-in your speakers in less time and more comprehensively than is possible with music or other burn-in signals.
