Product Details

Bowers & Wilkins CT Series 15" Black Subwoofer - CTSW15 (Sold As Each)

Part of the Bowers & Wilkins Custom Theater Series, the B&W CT SW15 Subwoofer is intended to complement a multichannel surround system consisting of speakers like the CT7.3 LCRS. Its task? Create massive, menacing bass while lurking hidden in the shadows. The CT SW15's relatively diminutive stature belies the true nature of this beast.

To make big bass, you need to move a lot of air. The B&W CT SW15 employs a 15-inch paper/aramid fiber cone long-throw driver to move the volumes needed to meet the demands of a powerful home theater system in a large room. Handling up to 1000W @ 8 ohms and with a frequency range dipping down to 16 Hz, the CT SW15 subwoofer will rattle your seats with every crash, explosion and dinosaur roar the latest Hollywood blockbuster throws at it.

Massive bass is the first part of any great subwoofer, but the real challenge is building one with this kind of power in a compact enclosure. Because the B&W CT Series is intended for custom installations, the CT SW15 was designed to be as unobtrusive as possible, easily fitting in a cabinet or discreetly against a wall. As a result, the CT SW15 is just 10.3" deep, without the magnetically attached grille. This slim profile, combined with a sleek matte-black finish, opens up a wealth of stealthy positioning possibilities, so while you might get pummeled by booming bass, you'll never see it coming.
