    Small heavyweight who deals hard blows

    Richard Geurts | 29 March 2017 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Beautifully finished
    • Settings via display with touch screen, so no potentiometers that crack.
    • Small therefore not prominent.
    • Sound
    • Price
    • Weight, especially when connecting the cables at the bottom.

    The speaker is the size of a basketball with the weight of a block of concrete, the connections are on the bottom where they can not collect dust. The disadvantage is that you have to lift it before connecting it and because of the weight and smooth finish this is quite a task, I tilted it backwards and put it on the floor so that it is not damaged. So hold the speaker with one hand and connect it with the other.
    Setting is quite easy via the display with touch screen, you can also set it via an app on a laptop that you connect with a USB cable. I have not used this, firstly I have to reconnect the cable at the bottom and remove it afterwards or you have a loose cable on the floor.
    Sound is nice and tight and indeed without resonance, it is also completely silent when it is in standby. In my old sub from HK you always heard a noise when it was on standby.
    I love the small build and finish, especially with the metal speakers on the side. This also has a disadvantage as they are unprotected it is very easy to bump against them, causing them to be damaged.
    Only that price is a bit to swallow, but I do not regret the purchase.

    Solid sound from a nice ball.

    • Beautiful design
    • Beautiful sound
    • Compact
    • Connections at the bottom makes it difficult
    • Not cheap

    A very nice, compact "ball" that can produce some serious sound. Not exactly easy to get to the connections: they are at the bottom. Tip: If you're alone, use a pillow to flip it over to access the connectors without scratching.

    Very good sounding device, unique in appearance and operatio

    M.A. Tazelaar | 21 December 2020 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Tight bass
    • Compact
    • Design
    • Solid construction
    • Only tuning app for PC
    • App is old software
    • Setting up without an app is tinkering with a built-in screen and buttons.
    • Do not use too long RCA plugs, all connections are at the bottom and there is not too much space.

    The sound of this subwoofer is great and it adapts exactly to the speakers already in the room. On the other hand, the PC app has an old-fashioned feel, is not easy to find on the B&W site and can be configured via the built-in control panel. Also, the sub firmware must be on a certain trigger to be able to make adjustments in the settings at all. Peculiar...

    For those who can afford it, just do it.
    • appearance personally beautiful
    • quality
    • Easy to install
    • Low Frequency
    • Perfect for surround systems
    • Frequency not adjustable

    Nice product, robust and a nice design.
    This subwoofer is a beautiful and good combination with your surround system.
    Once you have properly set this up to your personal taste, it will no longer be of any use to you.
    Price quality just good.

    Small, stylish subwoofer with pure sound.
    • Super low for such a small sub 16Hz audible
    • Powerful
    • High-quality finish
    • No resonance due to round design
    • Small, powerful, but just not enough for the real deep 'stump in the stomach' feeling that a sub should give.
    • very expensive...

    I have limited space, so I'm looking for a small but powerful sub that can go very low, at high volume. The drivers sit on either side of the round sub, which means you move a lot of air, which is what a subwoofer should do. Unfortunately, he (and many others before him) wasn't up to the task, but in any other setting this sub will do a great job! With a traditional square cabinet you hear the air moving through the bass-reflex pipes and there is then a resonance that you just don't want. This sub is round, and therefore there is (almost) no collision of the sound waves in the cabinet. It is also dense, and the design and materials used make this a great subwoofer.
    A high price, but you get a lot in return.
    You can connect the SUB to your laptop or PC via USB to complete the settings. I expected a little more from this app. This is really only useful if you have one of the B&W 5.0 speakers that the SUB (also) supports, it will then perfectly harmonize with the selected set. It is also possible to upgrade the speaker through a firmware upgrade via this app. However, I have not tested this.
