It is built with a sphere shape which is able to accommodate pressure differences between the inside and outside of the enclosure. The rear of the subwoofer has twin drivers which operate to minimize pressure differences throughout the internal volume. In addition to this, the driver diaphragms are built to withstand pressure which contains three layer of constructions - mica cone, expanded polystyrene filler and concave aluminium outer skin. The B & W PV1 offers 3dB, 21 Hz to 31/110 Hz of adjustable frequency response. It features 100 kW of input impedance. The subwoofer has a low-pass filter frequency that is active on 2nd-order and has variable cut-off frequency. Other features include bass roll-off alignment, auto sense on or standby function. The B & W PV1 offers phase switch. The amplifier also offers noise signal of more than 90 dB.

Additional Features
