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 amplifier 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.

  • Class D Amplifier delivers exacting and efficient bass performance.
  • A sophisticated and balanced design adds to, not distracts, from the listening experience.
  • Smart design looks great and reduces unwanted vibrations.
  • Opposed Dual Driver Technology minimizes distortion.
  • Dynamic EQ optimizes performance in real time, allowing Formation Bass to perform like a much larger subwoofer. 
  • AirPlay 2 compatibility with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch with iOS 11.4 or later, Apple TV 4K or Apple TV (4th Generation) with tv OS 11.4 or later, Mac or PC with iTunes 12.8 or later.
