Bowers & Wilkins Adds 600 Series Sub

British loudspeaker manufacturer Bowers & Wilkins has added a new subwoofer to its 600 Series: the ASW 610XP. It utilizes a single 10-inch driver in a sealed enclosure which provides flat response to 25 Hz (-3dB) with useful bass extension to 18 Hz (-6 dB).

The 600 Series from Bowers & Wilkins, British maker of loudspeakers, has been a success since its introduction. Now the 600 Series family adds a new subwoofer, the ASW 610XP.

The new ASW 610XP utilizes a single 10-inch driver in a sealed enclosure, providing flat response to 25 Hz (-3 dB) with useful bass extension to 18 Hz (-6 dB). Its driver, a very long-throw "ten", features dual, high-current voice-coils and a paper/Kevlar• cone. A Class D design, its amplifier delivers 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 13 13 15 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.
