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.
