Bowers & Wilkins PV1D - The world’s most musical subwoofer goes digital

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