Bowers & Wilkins PV1D Subwoofer Black (EX-DEMO)

$2,119 $2,499



A unique take on subwoofer design, PV1D uses two opposed drivers in a super-rigid enclosure to deliver fast, clean, firm solid bass for music and movies.

Compact and Mighty

Despite its diminutive size, PV1D uses its twin drivers and 400 watt amplifier to fill your room with bass.

The Stealthy Subwoofer

An ultra-rigid enclosure and matte finishes make this a powerhouse you can hide away in any room.

Turn up the pressure

Bring all the power of those big action movies home with the high-intensity stealth subwoofer.

More bass, much less shake

Along with its ultra-rigid enclosure, PV1D uses horizontally-opposed bass drivers, working back-to-back. That spreads the bass better, and also makes the whole assembly self-damping, keeping it stable and inert.

Take control

The simple, intuitive touch-control panel lets you 'dial in' PV1D for use with everything from little satellite speakers to big floor-standing 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 able to handle all that power.
