The wireless Formation Bass from Bowers & Wilkins, as part of the Formation Suite,
puts even wired subwoofers to the test. Its unique patented cylindrical design
enables the use of opposed dual driver technology to reduce distortion, while
a powerful Class D amplifi er with Dynamic EQ delivers crisp, clean sound.
Formation Bass is more accurate, well-timed, and more expressive than ever
creating a greater depth of sound you can not only hear, but also feel. It also
pairs seamlessly with other speakers in the Formation Suite and together they
create the Highest Form of Sound™.
