Bower & Wilkins Adds 600 Series Sub

N. Reading, MA—The affordable 600 Series from Bowers & Wilkins, British maker of widely admired high-performance loudspeakers, has been an unqualified success since its introduction among customers and critics alike. Now the popular 600 Series family adds a new subwoofer, the ASW 610XP, that delivers reference performance from an amazingly compact, high-value design.

The new ASW 610XP utilizes a single 10-inch driver in a carefully calculated sealed enclosure, with substantial power, to surprising results: flat response to 25 Hz (-3 dB) with useful bass extension to 18 Hz (-6 dB), and impressively powerful and dynamic output potential. One secret to this remarkable performance is the ASW 610XP’s unique driver, a very long-throw “ten? with dual, high-current voice-coils and extremely strong, paper/Kevlar™ cone. Another is its “extra powerful? amplifier, a very efficient, audiophile-grade Class D design that delivers a true 500 watts to the sub’s operating band.

The new sub includes B&W’s familiar three-position EQ switching, which can maximize extension (setting “A?) or SPL (“C?), or compromise between the two (“B?). Additional controls include line-in level, low-pass frequency with bypass, bass rolloff alignment, and phase, plus auto-on/off/standby. The ASW 610XP includes both line-level (RCA) and speaker-level (binding posts) inputs, and a 12-volt on/off trigger. Measuring just 13x13x15 inches (approx.), the newest Bowers & Wilkins sub is available in Black Ash, Red Cherry, or Wenge vinyl-woodgrain finishes.

Available: Immediately, at a manufacturer’s suggested price of $1,200 each.
