Subwoofer

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.

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 of 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.



COMPACT AND MIGHTY

Despite its diminutive size, PV1D uses its twin drivers and 400W 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 floorstanding 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.
