Bowers & Wilkins PV1D Subwoofer

£1,200.00 inc.VAT

This curvaceous sub uses 400 Watts of genuine power to deliver incredibly agile bass from an iconic design.

A unique take on subwoofer design, PV1D uses two opposed drivers in a super-rigid enclosure to deliver fast, clean, firm solid bass for music and movies.

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.

Take Control

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.
