Re: B&W Pv1

I can see a strange tendency with all B&W subwoofers; H3 always seems to dominate rather than H2, any ideas why?

Re: B&W Pv1

Is this a subwoofer or a MB unit? Can't believe such a performance for only 1500 Euro I will buy 2 of them certainly....And I am also impressed by the 100 KW impedance ...WOW! Steve: forget about your LLT theory...The dual subwoofers I have cost me about as much as this PV1
