At a live gig, a truly powerful, clean PA system will deliver bass with a drive and ‘punch’ that gets the blood pumping and sets the senses on fire. It’s hard to get that same excitement from a home hi-fi, but ensuring the mechanical integrity of the bass driver is essential to the pursuit. Bowers & Wilkins’ bass drivers use a ‘mushroom’ type diaphragm construction, maximising rigidity by bonding the cone, dust cap and extended voice coil bobbin into a stiffening girder-like unit.
