Bowers & Wilkins Sound System

We don’t think hearing the lyrics as well as the bottomless bass at a concert is too much to ask. But you’d never know it from the sound quality you often get at these music festivals. Thankfully, Bowers & Wilkins wants to change all that.

B&W’s somewhat confusingly named Sound System is just that: a massive sound system meant for bringing new levels of audio quality to the stage. Sound System promises to overcome the issues of dynamic compression in traditional PA systems by adapting the acoustic design of B&W’s flagship hi-fi and studio speakers. Each Sound System stack features four fully braced low frequency enclosures with two 380mm Rohacell composite drivers, two mid/bass units, an FST Kevlar midrange driver and four Nautilus tube-loaded high frequency drivers. It’s not for sale to the public, but you can look for the debut of the soul-rattling bass at the upcoming Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona, Spain. [Purchase]
