Bowers & Wilkins CTSW12


Quick Specs

  • Type: Speakers
  • Energy Star Rated: No

The CTSW12 is a passive subwoofer featuring a 12-inch paper drive unit. It is designed to be used with both the CT800 and CT700 ranges. All CT SW subwoofers have a closed-box design that makes them easy to install in cabinetry.

It might seem strange to many listeners that a material like paper could have much to do with a product as solid and powerful as a Custom Theatre subwoofer. Nevertheless, paper plays a vital part in what they're hearing.

In our CT SW10, CT SW12 and CT SW15 subs, the bass driver diaphragms are constructed from a 'nely-tuned mix of paper pulp, Aramid fiber 'bres and resin, which provides the stiffness needed to withstand the tremendous physical forces exerted by the pressures inside the cabinet.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
