The DB1 is the most advanced subwoofer Bowers & Wilkins has ever produced. Perfect for home theatre and Hi-Fi.


When it comes to getting maximum enjoyment from movies and music, bass is where the action is. And for serious bass, you’re going to need a seriously powerful subwoofer.

But power is only half of the story. To fully convey the visceral impact of an explosion, or the thrilling sweep of an orchestral score, you also need control. The kind of control that stops sonic distortion dead in its tracks, no matter how hard you push the speaker. And the fast response required to bring nuance and pin-sharp definition even to the biggest, most powerful bass effects.

Control. It’s the rare quality that puts the DB1 head and shoulders above the rest. Combine it with the awesome power derived from its  dedicated amplifier, and you have a subwoofer that puts you right at the heart of the action.
