DB Series Subwoofers. Precision. Accuracy. Power.

The Bowers & Wilkins DB Series is our most advanced range of subwoofers yet. Following in the footsteps of the ground-breaking DB1, each model in the three-strong range incorporates new digital technology plus a host of material advances from our award-winning 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers. All three subwoofers have huge power, Aerofoil cone drive units and an all-new preamplifier section with dynamic EQ and simple yet highly effective automatic calibration. An intuitive control app makes them simple to configure and use, whether they are being used in a cinema system, a home installation or to complement stereo loudspeakers. Quite simply, the new DB Series is the best-sounding subwoofer range in its class. 


The DB1D is the most powerful active subwoofer Bowers & Wilkins has ever made; its 2000W amplifier provides astonishing reserves of drive and authority. With their 1000W amplifiers, the DB2D and DB3D mirror this capability in more compact forms.



The DB Series subwoofers use Aerofoil cones derived from the 800 Series Diamond. These light, ultra-stiffdrivers resist bending and flexing far longer than conventional cones, delivering controlled bass with outstanding precision. DB3D shares its drive units with 802 D3, while the cone on the DB2D is the same as that found in the 800 D3. DB1D, meanwhile, features all-new and massively powerful 12-inch drive units.


DB Series subwoofers use two bass cones arranged in an opposed, balanced configuration that greatly reduces cabinet vibration and ensures a cleaner, more precise sound. The result: fantastic, coloration-free bass.


Thanks to an all-new digital preamplifier, the DB Series subwoofers’ awesome power is always delivered optimally. The powerful combination of Dynamic EQ plus automatic calibration and equalisation ensures outstanding performance in every circumstance.
