  • Conclusion: It would be hard to imagine this subwoofer not impressing just about any listener. The combination of room equalization and number of setup options should allow the DB-1 to be to be integrated into nearly any system with ease. This, coupled with its great sound quality, should please almost every user. True, it is not cheap and there is some heady competition at this price range, but the sound quality and aesthetics are hard to dispute.

  • Conclusion: To set up by gear, I returned the DB1 to its factory default settings—no room compensation—by selecting a new Preset to clear out the previous Room Acoustics Compensation settings. I ran SubApp a second time, and used my laptop's keyboard to adjust the virtual gain sliders in SubApp to match the outputs of the DB1 and the Quads while watching the resulting room-response curve on the TV monitor.

  • Excerpt: Fans van pure muziek in stereo en surround alsook in film snakken naar een systeem dat in staat is om het volledige klankspectrum weer te geven. De basis daarvan ligt in het laag, met de lage tonen die het fundament vormen en waarop wordt verder gebouwd. Bowers & Wilkins komt met de DB-1 (wat staat voor Deep Base 1) aanzetten met een heus statement op vlak van subwoofers, die die audiofiele droom belooft waar te maken.

DB 1

5 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Der DB1 von B&W zählt zu den leistungsstärksten und intelligentesten Subwoofern. Jenseits seines enormen Tiefgangs und der satten, unverzerrten Pegel bietet er fein justierbare Filter sowie effektive Korrekturen der Raumakustik. Klanglich lässt er weder im Tiefbass noch bei impulsiver Musik Wünsche offen. Allerdings würden wir uns eine einfachere Steuerung wünschen.
