Cute Sound? B&W PV1 Subwoofer
I don’t often pair the words “cute” with “great sound”, but even I have to admit that Bowers & Wilkins mastered both in the PV1 subwoofer. The PV1 takes all the old principles of a subwoofer and turns them on their head, beginning with the adage that a subwoofer should be a boring box. The PV1 is round, like a small silver bowling ball. And it owes both its unique shape and its performance to advanced engineering. The “PV” stands for “pressure vessel.” B&W claims this unique spherical design creates a near perfect environment to maximize internal volume. The result is a subwoofer that’s also a conversation piece. It might just be the perfect addition to any contemporary room.
