Bowers & Wilkins PV1D subwoofer
Bass the way you like it. The PV1D will change the way you view subwoofers. Not just because of its inherently stable curved form, but because its digital platform which extends performance and flexibility.
The PV1 has long been regarded as something of an icon in domestic subwoofer design, both for its striking shape and superlative sonic performance. But by introducing a digital dimension for the upgraded PV1D, B&W have gone one better.
The PV1D’s inherent stability means it can be pushed just that bit further. The symmetrical mounting of its twin drive units keeps the subwoofer perfectly balanced and anchored to the floor. So there’s no rattle when it rumbles. The back-to-back arrangement also further improves the distribution of pressure inside the speaker. Coupled to an all-new amplifier generating 400 watts of power, the drivers have the dynamics and control to deliver all a subwoofer should. A big sound from a small bubble.
Adopting the digital platform developed for their flagship DB1 subwoofer allows the PV1D to be fine tuned and controlled with more precision than its predecessor.
You love the visceral deep-bass impact of special movie sound effects? Or maybe you prefer a flatter response, to compensate for a more resonant listening environment? Whatever your listening tastes, with a full range of EQ options at your disposal, the choice is entirely up to you.
