Bowers & Wilkins ASW608
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.
Everyone should experience truly great sound. With the 600 Series, everyone can. Combining audio performance, power and price, the 600 Series blends technology from high-end Bowers & Wilkins speakers with engineering solutions unique to the range, to bring the best in audio to everyone.
The 600 Series uses tweeter technology taken from Bowers & Wilkins award-winning CM10 speaker. Double Dome tweeters feature a thin aluminium dome for lightness, surrounded by a thicker aluminium ring for rigidity. 600 Series tweeters are also ‘Decoupled’ from the cabinet for acoustic independence. The result is treble performance so pure and precise it will take your breath away.
Bass for all
Both the 683 and HTM61 feature improved bass drivers, with a new Dual Layer construction. The result is a cone with a higher break up frequency, for a richer, distortion-free bass response and better integration with the midrange.
Our signature “Fixed Suspension Transducer” drivers help Kevlar cones perform even better. FST’s innovative ‘surroundless’ suspension minimises distortion and gives the cleanest midrange performance in the business.
Achieving such stellar audio performance, at this price, requires careful design. Tried-and-tested technologies from Bowers & Wilkins’ high-end ranges such as the Decoupled Double Dome tweeters are seamlessly integrated with new developments, including new Dual Layer aluminium bass drivers. The result is innovative engineering, superb audio performance and outstanding value.
Hi-Fi for all
What else can soothe, invigorate or inspire in the way music can? Bowers & Wilkins believes everyone should experience truly great sound. That’s why the 600 Series is designed to suit most uses, homes and budgets. Now everyone can.
Listen and you’ll see
Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series speakers are world-renowned. That’s why they’re found in leading studios such as London’s Abbey Road. The highly developed ears that tuned those speakers are the same ears that tuned the 600 Series.
Passion for sound
In a world of streaming, wireless and cloud-based audio, in a world where music has to compete with everything else happening in your life, it matters more than ever that music sounds brilliant. After all, what else can soothe you to sleep, excite and invigorate you, or clear and calm your head to let you think and feel? Cut through the chatter, sit back and really listen… and you’ll see.
LP or FLAC
It doesn’t matter where your music comes from. Some prefer classic vinyl, others lossless digital files such as FLAC. All that really matters is how good it sounds to you. With 600 Series speakers, whatever the format, music sounds brilliant.
Large or small
The 600 Series is designed to work everywhere, from floorstanding audiophile stereo and home cinema in larger rooms to bookshelf and wall mounted compact speakers in smaller spaces. With every speaker delivering amazing audio performance.
The versatile 600 Series isn’t just ideal for audiophile stereo listening. Speakers from the range can be combined to form a stunning home theatre surround sound package. And with the 600 Series including a range of speaker sizes, plus centre speakers and subwoofers, it can fill the largest space or fit in the smallest. The 600 Series – home theatre power and performance for all.
The 600 Series’ two centre speakers look great thanks to slim cabinets and symmetrical designs. They also sound great with Decoupled Double Dome tweeters and Kevlar drivers delivering bags of detail, punch and precision.
The 600 Series includes three subwoofers, ranging from the compact ASW608 to the powerful ASW610XP. Each boasts an audiophile-standard, highly efficient Class D amplifier. And each is finished to match the rest of the series.
