Summary: Amazing sub and here's why, it's not completely made by B&W, if you take a nice look at the specs it said ICEpower amplifiers, which is created and made by Bang & Olufsen, a Danish company (and far better than B&W) Anyhow the ICEpower amp is what makes it possible for B&W to have a sub as compact as this. Look for all B&W speakers to be outsourced in the near future, they have been manufacturing the majority of their speakers in China the past few years.
Summary: excellent bass quality,no distortion even in higher volume,good bass extention and versatile especially in music.i owned one since 2006 and never planed to replace.one of the best sounding subwoofer in the market.
Summary: Just purchased 2 PV1's As part of of a B&W home theater combo (XT4, 2 and C). The sound is quite simply fantastic. The mix of the XT4 with the PV1 is as melodic, full ranged and with better dispersion than the significantly more expensive B&W 802. The sound is breathtaking! As a bonus the styling is also a perfect match for our home decor, eclectic modern.
