Bowers and Wilkins ASW608

Ideally suited to home cinema sub-satellite systems, the ASW608 is the baby of the B&W subwoofer range, and yet still boasts a huge 200W class D power amplifier to give thrilling bass stomp when it is needed.

The long throw 200mm diameter driver has an ultra stiff cone material made of a mixture of resin, paper pulp and Kevlar fibres, making it very stiff and resistant to deformation at the high excursion levels required to produce deep, extended pass.

Of course, the cabinet is equally robust and solid, to ensure all of the drive unit movements translate to rich, undistorted low-frequency sound. The rear control panel allows fine tuning of volume, crossover frequency and phase, plus high and low-level amplifier connections.

Available in the Matte White and Matte Black
