Active Subwoofer

Product Summary

Together with the technical innovations for which B&W are famous, we have achieved this

supreme audio quality only by use of the very highest quality components. These include

B&W's unique Flowport™ system, new ultra-lowfrequency15-inchdrive unit which utilises

a stiffer, lighter die cast chassis to minimise unwanted resonances.

High power is essential in reproducing the exceptional bass demands of today's digital

audio recordings and movie sound tracks. The active 3rd order high pass and 4th-order

low pass line level filters with selectable crossover frequency, combined with variable gain

control and a phase reversal switch, allow tight matching between any other loudspeakers.

A passive 1st order speaker level filter gives flexibility for systems without preamp outlets.

Technical highlights

Flowport™: Golf ball aerodynamics theory points the way towards lower

distortion reflex ports. Dimples improve the way the air flows over the surface of

any object. In the case of reflex ports, they offer a significant improvement over

simply flaring the port ends in reducing air flow turbulence at each end of the

port; so you get less chuffing noise and less compression at high sound levels.
