Product Details

Bowers & Wilkins Formation Bass Black Wireless Subwoofer - FP40258

The Formation Bass, a wireless Bowers and Wilkins subwoofer, puts even its wired counterparts to the test. With a unique, patented, cylindrical design, the FP40258 utilizes opposed dual driver technology to reduce distortion and a powerful Class D amplifier with Dynamic EQ that delivers crisp, clean sound. The combination allows this Bowers and Wilkins subwoofer to produce bass that is more accurate, expressive, and well-timed than you can imagine, creating a depth of sound you not only hear, but also feel.

As part of the Formation Suite, the Formation Bass pairs seamlessly with other Formation speakers. When using the FP40258 with additional Formation products, the devices will create and communicate over their own mesh network, facilitating instant synchronisation between devices even in different rooms. And for those looking to supplement their existing speakers, the Formation Audio integrates passive systems into the Formation environment. Connect the Audio to a record player and you can even enjoy your favorite vinyl with this wireless Bowers and Wilkins subwoofer. Bring the Formation Bass into your home to enjoy the Highest Form of Sound™.
