Bowers & Wilkins PV1D Active Subwoofer

The PV1-D builds upon the superior standards set by its predecessor, the PV1 while retaining its stylish and iconic aesthetic. This visual appearance is not just for fashionable purposes, however, the shape of the PV1 and subsequent PV1-D has been designed to aid the bass response using specially designed acoustic ergonomics. 

One of the most dramatic updates the PV1-D sees is the move to a digital platform, developed initially for the top-of-the-range DB1 subwoofer from Bowers & Wilkins. This digital amplification when combined with new drive units and various other performance enhancements equal an astounding result. 

Set-up and fine-tuning the response of the subwoofer is done with ease, thanks to the newly developed OLED display and touch-button functionality, while a custom-designed SubApp PC software allows for an even more advanced set-up process.

The PV1D is an excellent addition to any higher quality audio system, offering a new level of warmth and smoothness to your favourite music, and a truly immersive dynamic response for your favourite films. 

Who is Bowers & Wilkins?

Bowers & Wilkins are a company who needs a very little introduction, having been constructing some of the world's most critically acclaimed loudspeaker and headphone models for half of a decade. Starting at the entry level 600 S2 series, through to the new 700 S2 series audiophile range, 800 Diamond series and flagship Nautilus model. These different series of loudspeaker have been praised as the superior listening experience in both two-channel hifi/music listening and in multi-channel home theatre applications, having claimed a vast multitude of awards in both categories. A Bowers speaker can be easily recognised by the signature yellow Kevlar midrange cone, which can be found with their 600 series with the latest 700 and 800 Series opting for a silver 'continuum' cone.
