Even bigger bass if you need it…
In most circumstances the ASB-10 will deliver ample levels of bass, but for low frequency enthusiasts Monitor Audio has developed the optional WS-10 active sub-woofer, purpose-built to add big bass dynamics to the ASB-10 system and all space-efficient set-ups. Complete with three-position EQ and a high quality digital wireless link to the ASB-10, the WS-10 is a compact and versatile design, comprising an 8” C-CAM driver powered by a 120 watt amplifier, generously provisioned with individual volume and phase controls, and a standard array of wired LFE and 12V inputs for integration with an AVR in alternative system applications. For ever greater system design versatility, the WS-10 can connect wire-free to other systems via Monitor Audio’s new WT-1 transmitter module.
Equipped with twin HiVe reflex ports, the WS-10’s robust, low-profile cabinet of 18mm MDF is designed with flexibility in mind, wirelessly extending the ASB-10’s full-range delivery and contributing deeper bass to any Soundbar or compact satellite system through wired or wireless connections from the widest range of discreet room locations: beneath furniture, along room boundaries or in corners.
Simple to set-up and integrate, flexible to use and expand, and easy to appreciate in any environment, Monitor Audio’s super-slim active ASB-10 Soundbar and its optional companion WS-10 active subwoofer employ over four decades of award-winning audio precision to help all home entertainment fans enjoy what they’ve been missing from their TVs and smartphones.

ASB-10 & WS-10 Review
Danny Phillips from Trusted Reviews recently reviewed the ASB-10 and WS-10 and, after thorough listening, stated:
"The beautifully built ASB-10 and WS-10 are a match made in heaven with their smooth, powerful sound."
Danny went on to say that "when you put the ASB-10 and WS-10 together, magical things happen. They create an enormous soundstage, with convincing scale and thumping bass."
"The ASB-10's smooth, silky tone provides hours of fatigue-free listening, not to mention clear, focused dialogue and plenty of sonic detail."
MORE GREAT QUOTES ARE BELOW:
"...there's an ease and smoothness to its presentation that makes it a joy to listen to for long periods."
"The ASB-10 also digs out plenty of detail from the soundtrack, layering punches and explosions with subtle textures. The gentle croak and sibilance in Benedict Cumberbatch's voice is beautifully handled; likewise the thunk of footsteps on a wooden floor."
"Paired with the WS-10, the system is capable of creating a huge soundstage with a terrific sense of scale."
"...the subwoofer's meaty rumble makes you feel dwarfed. It adds depth and impact to every thud as the characters do battle, in turn heightening the drama."
"During quieter moments it lends body to voices and music, but when big action scenes kick in, the WS-10 gives the bangs and crashes impressive slam and definition."
"...when it comes to music the ASB-10 is a delight...The track sounds rich and polished, with inviting piano chords, chunky, detailed double bass and finely detailed percussion. Porter's voice has a deep, velvety tone, while the sax solo is agile and well rounded."
