Some things are worth the wait, and if you're a fan of AV123 you've been waiting for the MFW-15 for a very long time. Well, the MFW-15 has finally been released and AV123 couldn't be prouder. The MFW-15 subwoofer is part of the next generation of subwoofers from AV123.com. The ~100 pound MFW-15 subwoofer, starting at $599 each, was designed from the ground up by AV123's Mark Schifter and renowned subwoofer guru Mark Seaton. The MFW-15 features a 25mm front baffle and plenty of bracing along with a custom designed 15” driver, 350 watt high efficiency design amplifier with separate control panel for Level, Phase and Low Pass Frequency at the top back of the cabinet and an internally folded slot port. The subwoofer is offered in beautiful Rosewood, Cherry, Black and the unique Moho.

According to AV123, you can expect 15-17Hz low end extension in most rooms and output of 103dB at 20Hz (1M measurement) and greater than 115dB above 35Hz (1M). All MFW-15’s are wrapped in a real wood veneer (via renewable resource) or finished in a silky-smooth satin black. The hand finished MFW-15 subwoofer should be right at home with fine furniture, and looks far more expensive than its price would suggest. And that is what excites us most - the price. At only $599 for one (satin black) or $998 for two we can see a lot of enthusiasts foaming at the mouth over this one. As we love to recommend dual sub setups, being able to point to affordable dual sub packages is always a big plus. The first units are shipping now.
