Underpinning the drama and scintillating musical vitality of a Platinum multichannel speaker system is the PLW-15, a rangematching 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” (381 mm) 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” (101.6 mm) voice coil provides the ultimate linearity and control required to reproduce the clean seismic 16 Hz 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 PLW-15, 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.
