About B&W DB3D Subwoofer
The Bowers & Wilkins DB Series is their most advanced range of subwoofers yet. Following in the footsteps of the ground-breaking DB1, each model in the three-strong range incorporates new digital technology plus a host of material advances from the award-winning 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers. All three subwoofers have huge power, Aerofoil cone drive units and an all-new preamplifier section with dynamic EQ and simple yet highly effective automatic calibration. An intuitive control app makes them simple to configure and use, whether they are being used in a cinema system, a home installation or to complement stereo loudspeakers. Quite simply, the new DB Series is the best-sounding subwoofer range in its class.
Space Saver: When you demand faultless base but floor space is at a premium, there is the DB3D. This high performance subwoofer is capable of delivering space defying bottom end from a compact, incredibly rigid cabinet.
Aerofoil For Precision Bass: The DB3D uses Aerofoil cones identical to those found in the flagship 802 D3. These two 8 inch cones are light and ultra stiff, and can resist bending and flexing far longer than conventional cones, delivering controlled bass with outstanding precision.
Balanced Drivers: The DB3D subwoofer uses two bass cones arranged in an opposed, balanced configuration that greatly reduces cabinet vibration and insures a cleaner, more precise sound. The result: fantastic, colouration-free bass.
Digital: Thanks to an all-new digital preamplifier, the BD3D subwoofers awesome power is always delivered at optimum levels. Bespoke features such as Dynamic EQ and Room EQ insure precision performance in every circumstance such as home cinema, custom installation or two channel Hi-Fi.
Dedicated App: App based set-up means the DB3D is simple to configure and use. The app includes positioning guides and can be used to set up and control both output and audio preset modes. A Room EQ system allows you to optimise the subwoofers performance for your room automatically. No separate microphone kit is required and the app is available for iOS and Android.
Perfect Partner: The DB3D is the obvious partner for a system built using the award-winning 800 Series Diamond. It has been engineered with this in mind and uses the same Aerofoil bass drivers. However, this incredibly capable subwoofer also works exceptionally well with a 700 series system, and provides a fantastic option for owners of this high-performance range.
In The News
In leading recording studios, music that will soon be heard everywhere is heard first through Bowers & Wilkins speakers. Bowers & Wilkins speakers are the only speakers I have found that enable me to accurately listen to how the original performance has been recorded.
