Magnepan DWM Bass Panel
The Magnepan Bass Panel (DWM) is a dipole, thin-film, planar/magnetic bass panel. It is essentially a small section out of the 20.1 and 20.7 bass drivers. But, please don’t call it a “subwoofer”. Subwoofers have become known as “slow” and “muddy”. The DWM Bass Panel has no problem integrating with a full-range Maggie because it is “all Maggie”.
Put a big speaker in a small room, too much bass. Put a small speaker in big room, too little bass. Everyone knows that. In general, it is true. There is no one-size-fits-all.
Most of the area of any full-range Maggie is devoted to bass reproduction. (In the case of the 20.7, 76% of the total radiating area is devoted to bass.) The Magneplanar Bass Panel offers you the flexibility to add bass diaphragm area to fit the needs of your room. From the $600 pair MMG to the 20.7, the Maggie Bass Panel can get the bass/midbass “just right”
.The Maggie Bass Panel has an obvious application for augmenting any of the “small” Magneplanars. It can be used simply as a free-standing bass panel. Or the panel, without the base, can be built into cabinetry or custom furniture as was installed in some of the “high roller” suites at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
