Bowers & Wilkins introduced several new products for the custom installation market at ISE 2022: the CDA-2HD and CDA-4D DSP amplifiers, and the ISW-6 and ISW-8 in-wall subwoofers.
The CDA-2HD is a high-power distribution amplifier with embedded DSP that allows optimization of a wide range of products and dynamic EQ for Bowers & Wilkins subwoofers. It boasts two channels of 500 watts each, within a half-rack width 2U design. As a compact distribution amplifier with embedded DSP as well, the CDA-4D boasts four channels of 125 watts each, and its 1U design delivers high-performance from minimum rack space.
Both will be available in October, the CDA-2HD for US$2,500 and the CDA-4D for US$2,000.
Meanwhile, the ISW-8 (US$2,500; October 2022) is Bowers & Wilkins’ flagship in-wall subwoofer. It delivers subwoofer performance for completely installed applications with a thin profile that allows it to fi t into a 2 x 4-inch stud wall.
At US$1,300, and also set for availability in October, the ISW-6 is a discreet, compact and versatile custom installation subwoofer, with twin ‘racetrack’ drivers arranged in a force-cancelling configuration. It is designed to work primarily with Bowers & Wilkins CI300 and CI600 speakers. There’s also a retro fit grille for the ISW-6 that will sell for US$180.
