Bowers and Wilkins John Bowers Active 1
Active Loudspeaker System
Behind the John Bowers Active 1 is a simple but demanding concept: to achieve 'large' loudspeaker performance from comparatively small enclosures. And these compact cabinets should be basically conventional in style, to integrate happily into home environments where space is at a premium.
During a two-year research and development programme, our augmented design team explored the very frontiers of technology in pursuit of the design concept. This uniquely experienced group of engineers had at their disposal the most sophisticated tools and instrumentation, including in-house computer and laser interferometry.
Their achievement is a system combining quite astonishing simplicity in operation with magnificent sound and space-saving compactness. And a total vindication of the importance which leading technologists have always attached to integrated design by one manufacturer of both electronics and the acoustics.
