Bowers and Wilkins has introduced a new DB Series of subwoofers, comprising the flagship DB1D, the DB2D and the compact DB3D. All feature huge amplification and can be configured with a dedicated control and install app.

The subs employ proprietary Aerofoil cone bass drivers, previously seen on the reference 800 series D3 range.  Aerofoil allows the creation of ultra-light, ultra-stiff transducers that resist bending and flexing far longer than conventional cones, for better bass and sonic precision. The DB1D features a 12-inch driver, the company’s largest Aerofoil cone to date.

They’re powerful too. The DB1D (pictured above) can call on 2000 Watts, while the DB2D and DB3D (pictured below) have 1000w power plants.

To aid installation, the series can be configured with a mobile app. This includes positioning guides, set-up and troubleshooting, and can be used to provide control over both output and audio preset modes. No separate microphone kit is required.

All three models will be available in a choice of three finishes: Gloss Black, Satin White and Rosenut. The DB1D retails for £3750, while the DB2D and DB1D are £2850 and £1950 respectively.
