Monolith by Monoprice 16in THX Certified Ultra 2000 Watt Powered Subwoofer
The Monolith™ 16" THX® Certified Ultra 2000 Watt Powered Subwoofer sets the standard for bass output, low distortion, and reference level bass. A newly designed 16" driver coupled with a DSP controlled, 2000 watt RMS, 3800+ watt peak power amplifier, brings a new dimension in low frequency, bass performance to any home theater system.
THX Certified Ultra: THX® engineers completed hundreds of different scientific tests to ensure the highest audio performance possible. The tests ensure the speaker can reach the high volumes necessary to achieve THX Reference Level without creating audible distortion or artifacts. THX Certified Ultra products are for large sized rooms, up to 3,000 cubic feet in size, with a 10‑12 foot viewing distance from the screen.
16" Woofer: The Monolith™ 16" driver was developed from the ground up, with a design focus on achieving output, accuracy, dynamics, and linearity, while minimizing distortion. Enclosed in a cabinet made from HDF material, massive internal bracing, and outfitted with three ports that can utilize foam plugs to run the subwoofer in a sealed mode, or tune it as you see fit.
2000 Watt Amplifier: The 2000W RMS amplifier (3800+ Watts Peak) is built around a Texas Instruments® 48‑bit data path (with 28‑bit filter coefficients) and DSP engine. Each amplifier's transfer function, power output limiting and thermal protection are monitored to the millisecond and are customized for each individual driver. The high efficiency Class D amplifier modules are based on a proven topology that has been continuously refined over the past 8 years. The amplifier has vast reserves of power for highly accurate, deep bass for your home theater or music system.
Using industry standards and a proprietary testing methodology, THX engineers evaluate and certify the audio and visual fidelity of consumer electronics to ensure they deliver the optimal entertainment experience. In cinemas, at home, and on‑the‑go, your entertainment comes alive with THX.
The Monolith™ subwoofer amplifier has an extraordinarily high power output of 2000 watts RMS (over 3800 watts peak), which can deliver massive amounts of power when needed. Each Class D amplifier is built around a Texas Instruments® 48‑bit data path (with 28‑bit filter coefficients) DSP engine, allowing virtually unlimited design flexibility with the assurance of no signal degradation. Each amplifier's transfer function, power output limiting, and thermal protection are monitored to the millisecond and are customized for each individual woofer and cabinet air volume combination. This state‑of‑the‑art Class D amplifier technology ensures maximum headroom capability, excellent transient response, high output, and very low distortion when driving the Monolith 16" THX® Certified Ultra Subwoofer.
