Product Details

Bowers & Wilkins PV1D Matte Black Subwoofer, Model PV1DB (Sold As Each)

PV1DW

The best home theater systems are designed to work like a team, with the receiver and speakers being the brains and the subwoofer bringing the brawn. Bowers & Wilkins steps the game up, with the B&W PV1D Subwoofer, which supplies both power and intelligence, and the performance that B&W speakers consistently deliver.

At first glance, you'll be struck by the unique, spherical shape of this B&W subwoofer, which is not simply a stylistic choice. Inspired by the vessels that explore the depths of the ocean, the shape of the PV1D subwoofer helps evenly disperse internal pressure waves, which often cause unwanted resonance in flat-sided subwoofers. The benefits of this design are extended with B&W's innovative Opposed Drive Unit system, which places each of the subwoofer drivers facing outwards, directly opposite eachother. This symmetrical mounting method perfectly balances the weight distribution of the drivers, as well as the vibrations they create. As a result, the B&W PV1D subwoofer achieves a remarkable level of stability. You'll hear—and feel—only rumbles, and not rattles.

Of course, when it comes down to it, what really matters is the sonic performance and power a subwoofer produces, and the B&W PV1D is no lightweight. Together, the twin 8-inch, long-throw drivers pump out 400 watts of wall-rattling bass. A frequency response of 7.5Hz -450Hz produces the deep notes that you give your music and movies that extra dimension. And for the true perfectionists, the PV1D subwoofer features an integrated OLED control panel, which lets you control a full range of presets and equalizer options, allowing you adjustment of the subwoofer to suit your varying tastes.

        Comments about Bowers & Wilkins PV1D Matte Black Subwoofer:

        I was in the store and they had a returned PV1D and they had a price that was just too good to pass up. Initially I purchased the PV1D and ultimately decided to purchase the 5 M1 speakers before I even left the store. I knew B&W was a good brand and that they would compliment the Marantz SR7009 I recently purchased. These speakers sound 1000 percent better than my old Accoustimass 10 Series IV.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Product was in good shape for an open box, this had a couple of nicks that had been filled in. The condition was fine for me since it sits in a corner and can't even really be seen.

        Comments about Bowers & Wilkins PV1D Matte White Subwoofer:

        I use this product with a Marantz Receiver and B&W M1 speakers and the cinema quality experience is fantastic. Watching movies with these speakers and sub is so much better than Bose!

        Service and delivery comments:

        My delivery was prompt, they were extremely flexible to accommodate my delivery needs and the product was in excellent condition. Each customer service rep I spoke to prior to delivery addressed my needs and was very polite. Sales person over the phone was personable and built up the relationship while the transaction was going on. Will definitely be a repeat customer.
