The AVA B1 Bass Module connects to the A1 via KleerNet, a wireless high-end audio protocol with zero latency. Together, the AVA speakers and bass module seamlessly combine the simplicity and versatility of connected speakers with the sound quality of true high-end speakers. 

The B1 is a unique, and critical part of the full AVA system. Within the AVA 2.1 Streaming Audio System, all controls such as gain, phase, and the frequency crossover point are handled dynamically. In real-time, the DSP controls which audio frequencies are sent to the connected components within the system and adjust playback depending on what is called for by the source audio. The AVA B1 Bass Module is a critical extension of the AVA Streaming Audio System, designed to deliver an excellent listening experience.
