A Compact Solution to a Big Problem: Bowers & Wilkins DB3D Subwoofer Fits in Tight Spaces and Delivers Superb Performance, Includes Two Eight-Inch Aerofoil Cone Drivers and 1000-Watt Amplifier
Bowers & Wilkins designed the high-performance DB3D subwoofer to not only seamlessly pair with its acclaimed 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers, but to solve a problem that vexes many listeners who want a sub: limited space. Measuring just 14.1 x 12.6 x 11.8 inches (HWD), DB3D doesn't take up much room and delivers fast, focused, and authoritative low-end responsiveness that enhances music, movies, and televised events. The extremely efficient DB3D proves that small can also be accurate, powerful, and engaging.
A pair of light, ultra-stiff eight-inch Aerofoil cone drivers, which resist bending and flexing while exhibiting stellar control and outstanding precision, reside at the heart of DB3D. Along with a 1000-watt Class D Hypex amplifier, DB3D leverages opposed, balanced configuration of the bass cones — an approach that lessens cabinet vibration, reduces coloration, and increases clarity. Preamplification comes courtesy of Dynamic EQ plus automatic calibration and equalization, ensuring consistency and clean delivery.
Setting up the cool-running DB3D couldn't be easier. Bowers & Wilkins' app-based setup is not only simple to use — it's great fun. The app includes positioning guides, troubleshooting, settings, presets, and more, such as the ability to optimize subwoofer performance by using the microphone on your phone. With such tools at your disposal, and DB3D in your corner, it's impossible to go wrong.
