Retaining the balanced drive and pressure vessel concept of its predecessor, the Bowers & Wilkins PV1D sports a fresh new design and a version of the DSP platform developed for the acclaimed DB1.
Digital processing provides greater control and versatility, allowing PV1D to integrate seamlessly with a wide variety of satellite speakers, either to create truly impressive home theatre systems, or to simply extend their bass response for two-channel applications.
There is power on tap to fully reproduce the most demanding special effects in movies, but the Bowers & Wilkins PV1D retains all the musical nuances for which its predecessor was renowned.
Turn Up The Pressure
Bring all the power of those big action movies home with the high-intensity stealth subwoofer.
More Bass, Much Less Shake
Along with its ultra-rigid enclosure, PV1D uses horizontally-opposed bass drivers, working back-to-back. That spreads the bass better, and also makes the whole assembly self-damping, keeping it stable and inert.
The simple, intuitive touch-control panel lets you ‘dial in’ PV1D for use with everything from little satellite speakers to big floorstanding models: behind it is advanced digital processing to make the most of all the bass on offer.
PV = Pressure Vessel™
PV1D takes its style from the inherently strong form of diving spheres and other pressure vessels: simply, it was the only shape able to handle all that power.
