The BXW-10 subwoofer represents a significant step up from its predecessor, the highly regarded BRW10. It's as compact as its forerunner, but more potent in every respect. A new 10" C-CAM® driver and 200 watt Class-D power amplifier have been devised in tandem to provide class leading standards of control, speed and punch. Featuring a new, fully integrated switch mode power supply, the new amplifier develops considerably more power than its predecessor, adding grip and clean bass delivery below 30Hz. A range of beautiful vinyl wood finishes provides the superlative looks to complement its accomplished deep bass performance.

Super Sonic Value: "Monitor Audio's Affordable, Awesome Speaker Package"
“...the longer I listened, the more impressed I became by their unforced musicality and easy, natural dynamics.”
“The Monitor Audio aced it, with whistling that was even and bright without ever leaning toward the shrill on any one note (an excellent indication of smoothness in the top octaves of tweeter response), and with intact baritone breathiness that never tilted over the rasp of fizz.”
“In terms of vocal honesty and of midrange texture and detail, the Bronze BX2s sounded far, far more expensive than $500-ish per pair.”
“And the treble demands were met effortlessly: Horn attacks and drum transients sounded uniformly excellent.”
“The Monitor Audio supporting cast, comprising the BX Center and BXFX surrounds, provided solidly, unspectacularly competent reproduction - with the latter characterization meant in the best way.”
“The center-channel unit made an unusually close match with the BX2s and, when auditioned on-axis (from the center seating location), created a truly seamless “front stage.”
“The Monitor Audio array turned out to have plenty of reserves for louder fare like Godzilla - and the little BXW10 proved itself a gamer, willingly laying down a surprisingly solid basis for footballs, crashing buildings, and other assorted mayhem.”
“(Monitor Audio) should be proud to have produced a very well-balanced, highly musical, and attractive layout that delivers honest value and then some."
First Tests - BX2 AV System
'Good looks, good finish, good spec; wide-open, controlled and dynamic sound...Thrillingly fit for purpose, the Bronze BX 5.1 is money very well spent.'
Opportunity dictated that I purchase a BXW10 instead of a MRW10. It goes with my MR4 towers. MRC center and MR1 surrounds, hooked to a Denon AVR X1100 receiver.
The BXW10 puts paid to the (false) notion that subwoofers operate at such low frequencies, where detail and colour are lost. With the right crossover and LPF settings this sub doesn't boom, doesn't go monotone and doesn't overwhelm the other speakers in the ensemble. What it does do, is extend the characteristically clean, detailed and natural sound of other Monitor Audio speakers down to the bottom notes of the upright bass or the Taiko drums.
This subwoofer is, obviously, intended to reproduce music faithfully, not to (at sensible volumes) rattle windowpanes or make a room seem cavernous.
While making one Monitor Audio speaker fit in with speakers of other brands may be somewhat difficult, a setup of Monitor Audio speakers all around breathes meaning to the expression. "True Hi-Fi".
I recommend it 100%. With Harman Kardon AVR165
Congratulations Monitor Audio!
