Bowers & Wilkins CT8 XO MKII Custom Theater Bass Management Controller (Each)

CT800 system active bass management controller


Working with world-leading audio component manufacturer Classé, B&W has developed a bass management system for the CT800 range whose clarity and power will leave you speechless. In conventional home theatre systems, the very low bass from the front and surround channels is often squeezed into a single subwoofer along with the Low Frequency Effects LFE channel. Contrast this with a CT800 system, where a subwoofer is actively combined with each of the front left and right channels, so that they are truly full range and preserve directional information to the lowest frequencies as intended. In fact you can assign up to 4 subwoofers to any of the front or surround channels. The single LFE channel is then distributed to all the subwoofers, giving a much more natural sensation of space and ambience. Even at very high volumes, the system retains consummate control over its output. All you have to do is hold on to your seat.
