Great Compact Sub for Mid-Fi Home Theater System
I purchased this sub because of the good reviews and because it matched with the B&W M-1 speakers. The unit has an interesting look that I'm pretty sure will be a pain in real life. The unprotected ends look cool, but I'm a bit concerned that they may get damaged if someone gets a little careless when they're vacuuming.n the cannon ball configuration is a little awkward during set up - roll it on carpet or a towel to prevent it from being scuffed up.
This is hands down one of THE most accurate subwoofers I've ever heard and it has good impact as well!
-Made extremely well with a metal spherical case and aluminum drivers. You can put your hand against the case and feel absolutely zero vibration coming through.
-It's just downright pretty, love the digital touch panel with OLED display.
-One of the most accurate subwoofers available right now.
-It isn't going to be quite as impactful for movies as more traditional box subs. Explosions will sound good but not "boomy" which is what most expect in a movie. So if you primarily listen to music, you'll love this subwoofer, if you only do movies...you'll want to look elsewhere. Doing both movies and music? Then it's a toss-up and I recommend demo-ing the unit yourself. Hearing drums through this subwoofer is jaw-dropping at how well it reproduces the bass, especially bass drums and floor toms...just incredible. Even EDM sounds magical on this subwoofer.
-Yes the aluminum drivers are exposed and they can get dented, but they're more thick than the past PV1 drivers and aren't so prone to dents as they were in that last-gen model. It's a nice aesthetic.
Another reviewer said to go for the white...but then some people like subwoofers to blend in a bit, although it doesn't hurt for this one to stand out when it's so gorgeous!
Since I exclusively use the subwoofer for music, it is perfection. If I was looking for a subwoofer for a home theater system, this would not be it.
This subwoofer is the center focal point of my entire room and setup. It is placed directly in the center of my room underneath a sold white coffee table. It matches ever so well. The sound coming from the two 8" subwoofers and fills the space with sweet harmonic sound that makes my ears happy. 10/10 would buy again! Please anyone looking at this subwoofer get the white matte version over the crummy black one. It goes well with anything

Great piece, if this continues to work for years
After a little over 3 yrs of owning this beauty, it suddenly stops working. No pops no connection changes, nothing. Just stopped working. Power seems to be flowing in as the LED turns blue from red, when music starts. However, only the arrows light up, no LCD display. Can't operated. Updated firmware and used SubApp to reset as well. No use. BestBuy's Magnolia store does not lift the phone. Working with B&W, by sending them a note online. Waiting.
However beautiful the item is, for the price, if it does not last, it is no value for the money I spent.
