Its long-throw 200mm driver allows the ASW608 to move the large volumes of air needed for high-quality low-frequency output, and its audiophile-standard 200W Class D amplifier keeps the unit running cool, even when the music or movie action is whipping up a storm.
In all of the 600 Series subwoofers, the bass driver diaphragms are constructed from a rugged, finely-tuned mix of paper pulp, Kevlar® fibres and resin, which provides the stiffness needed to withstand the tremendous physical forces exerted by the voice coil and pressures inside the cabinet.
Ultra-solid construction delivers slamming bass, drum kicks, and special movie effects. Deformation is minimised; bass precision, power and enjoyment are maximised.
The B&W ASW608 sub-woofer is a fantastic piece of equipment that is a must-have for any home surround sound system as a complement to any existing surround soundspeakers, providing extra dynamism and dimension to cinematic atmosphere.
Bowers & Wilkins’ latest in the 600 sub-woofer series fills a gap in the market for intermediate equipment at a budget price. Not only is the B&W ASW608 sub-wooferincredibly compact it remains a very powerful unit, powered by an integrated 200watt amplifier and a 200mm paper and Kevlar cone driver.
Built with a soft black finish, the ASW608 sub-woofer is aesthetically sympathetic to most living room and bedroom designs and does its best work within smaller, more confined spaces.
