Subwoofer Bowers & Wilkins ASW608 – B&W award-winning bass

Enjoy the award-winning B&W bass of a smaller subwoofer, with Bowers & Wilkins ASW608.

Feel the bass
It may be smaller Than Sub Bowers & Wilkins, but that doesn’t prevent the Bowers & Wilkins ASW608 from hitting hard. The 8-inch woofer has the power to descend to frequencies well below many standing speakers – opening a new sound level that you can hear. Epic soundtracks now have the scale they deserve and the music has a more dynamic and realistic sound.

Controlled sound
With its 200-watt amplifier, the ASW608 maintains strict bass control. The hybrid paper/Aramid cone is also ultra rigid for exceptional accuracy. Combined with its powerful magnet, this means that the bass is still narrow, sensitive and does not wallow as lower subs can. Give him the right material, however, and the long-lived woofer demonstrates the bass’s power to shake windows.

Great power of a super-compact cabinet
Providing great power is easier with a larger cabinet to help contain your forces. Bowers & Wilkins have embarked on a more difficult path with the ASW608. Strong internal pressure is countered by walls of extremely thick cabinets and exceptional stiffness. It’s not a cheap solution, but it means the ASW608 maintains its high output power while remaining compact enough for small and medium-sized rooms.

Fully adjustable
For a sound that is perfectly suited to your room, the B&W ASW608 offers a wide range of settings. In addition to the usual volume and low pass frequency settings, the extension of the bass to three stages and the EQ switches give you the perfect amount of bass for the size of your room, the position of the subwoofer and the personal taste. If the subwoofer is placed behind you, simply select the phase switch for perfectly integrated bass. Photo:B&W
