MDX-16

Anthem MDX16

 

New Anthem MDX Series are the first distribution systems to feature fully powered independent-zone subwoofer connections, as well as ARC Genesis room correction for each zone.

MDX Series features todays cutting-edge Anthem amplifier technology so you can expect smooth, efficient, consistent high power and reliability. MDX Series is engineered to simplify your next custom audio system installation, and to blow your clients away with extreme performance in any setup.


Meet the Engineering Team behind the MDX

Anthems research and engineering division, sequestered in the epicentre of the Canadian tech industry, Ottawa, Canada, is the driving force behind the revolutionary MDX Series. Anthems Engineers spent over 2 years developing MDX and its myriad of features including Anthem Room Correction Technology for each zone.


Web-Based Setup

Nothing could be simpler than on-site configuration and calibration using our intuitive Web-based controls.

The specially designed, adaptive user interface works on any device. Custom configure zones, from input assignments to zone names. Adjust levels (and every aspect of performance) independently.


Automation Compatibility

Robust IP/RS-232 connection capability ensures compatibility with leading home automation systems, with easily downloaded drivers.

Drivers available for these systems:


Digital Inputs, Digital Switching

Fast, efficient Ultra-Class-D amplification is supported by proprietary Advanced Load Monitoring technology, delivering reliable performance under even the most demanding loads. Our high-efficiency design meets and exceeds global power-saving standards.

Smooth, instantaneous digital switching output allows the linking of digital inputs between multiple amplifiers and analog pass-through connections allow daisy-chaining of multiple MDX units.


Dedicated Subwoofers for each Zone

Install and control subwoofers independently in separate zones, with dedicated outputs (both low and high level, including bridge mode), and zone-independent settings for the new, more advanced Anthem Room Correction (ARC Genesis).

Toggle ARC Genesis on/off in each zone to hear the benefits of premium room optimization.


Zone Configuration Options

Zones can have custom names, multiple inputs, independent playback, and tuning controls. Bridge zones for more power. Enable subwoofer bass management in any zone, instantly set crossover frequency, level, phase, and polarity.

Only the MDX Series gives you this much control over multiple zones, supporting more creative system designs and more thrilling audio performance.


Analog/Digital Matrix Switching

Full digital/analog matrix switching allows you to assign any analog RCA, digital coaxial or digital optical input to any output, either pre-configured via the web interface or switched in real-time via IP commands.


MDX includes these key features and more
  • 60 Watts (8 Ohms) / 120 Watts (4 Ohms) with all channels driven, or bridges to provide 200 Watts (8 Ohms).
  • 8- or 16-channels of Ultra-Class-D amplification, each supported by Advanced Load Monitoring technology, delivers fast, reliable performance even under the most demanding loads.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
