Expert review by: Good Gear (

A stylish subwoofer


Even though it's clearly an exercise in contemporary styling, the PV1 is a great sub for music listeners. It's not as fantastic if you watch movies, but it still does an exemplary job.

Powerful, incredible low-frequency kick, compact, great styling

Not as versatile as we would have liked for movies
