The world’s most musical subwoofer goes digital

Retaining the balanced drive and pressure vessel concept of its predecessor, the PV1D sports a fresh new design and a version of the DSP platform developed of 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 enough power on tap to fully reproduce the most demanding special effects in movies, but the PV1D holds onto all the musical nuances for which its predecessor was renowned.

 

Turn up the pressure

Bring all the power of the big action movies home with this intense but discreet subwoofer. The PV1D will fit right into your lounge or home-theatre decor! Pair the PV1D with the M1 speakers from Bowers & Wilkins' Mini Theatre range to create a system that is small in size, but large in sound.

 

More bass, less shake

Along with its incredibly rigid enclosure, the PV1D uses twin bass drivers that are horizontally-opposed, working back-to-back. This more effectively spreads the bass frequencies in the room and also means that the whole assembly is self-damping, keeping it stable and inert no matter how hard you drive it.

 

 

 

Take control

Customise the sound to suit your room and speakers with the simple, intuitive touch-control panel on the side of the PV1D. The digital interface lets you 'dial in' the subwoofer 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 physically capable of handling all that power.

 

Mini Theatre Series. Seamless entertainment

In the best movies, everything fits. Actors, dialogue, storyline – it’s when all these separate elements merge effortlessly together that you know you’re in for a great cinematic experience. The same goes for Bowers & Wilkins' Mini Theatre series.

Tucked away on a bookshelf or mounted on stands, these are speakers designed to blend elegantly and unobtrusively into your surroundings. Thanks to some dramatic technological improvements, satellites, and subwoofers now integrate so seamlessly that each individual speaker seems to vanish, leaving you with the most immersive, fully formed cinema sound possible. No joins. No gaps. Just pure entertainment.
