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

Punchy bass
It might be Bowers & Wilkins smallest sub, but that doesn’t stop the ASW608 from hitting hard. The 8 inch woofer has the power to drop to frequencies well below many floorstanding speakers – opening up a whole new level of sound you can feel. Epic soundtracks now have the scale they deserve and music has a more dynamic and life-like sound.

Controlled sound
With its 200 watt amplifier, the ASW608 keeps a tight rein on the bass. The hybrid paper/Aramid cone is also ultra-stiff for exceptional accuracy. Combined with its powerful magnet, this means the bass remains tight, responsive and doesn’t wallow as inferior subs can. Give it the right material, though, and the long throw woofer demonstrates bass power to rattle the windows.

Big power from a super-compact cabinet
Delivering big power is easier with a larger cabinet to help contain the forces. Bowers & Wilkins have taken a more difficult route with the ASW608. Forceful internal pressure is counteracted by extremely thick cabinet walls and exceptional rigidity. It’s not a cheap solution but it means the ASW608 retains its high power output while remaining compact enough for small to medium-sized rooms.

Fully adjustable
For sound that’s perfectly tailored to your room, the ASW608 offers a wide range of adjustments. As well as the usual volume and low-pass frequency adjustments, three-stage bass extension and EQ switches give you the perfect amount of bass for your room size, subwoofer position and personal taste. If the subwoofer is positioned behind you, simply select the phase switch for smoothly integrated bass.

Enjoy room filling bass without a space invading sub, with the Bowers & Wilkins ASW608.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from B & W sub Got the 603 floor standing speakers and the centre 1 and sounded great but wasn't sure about the depth so tried the sub. Makes a big difference especially on films, can make the walls rattle. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from B&W Sub - good! I bought this a couple of weeks ago to replace a 10 year old Wharfdale DX1 that had failed. It feels like a major upgrade; a lot more bottom end, breathy, expressive and punchy. I had to adjust the equalizer settings on my AVR as the previous bass setting (+10!) was too instrusive to start with, but got to a nice position fairly quickly. Settings on the back of the unit are baffling, but I have basically used it straight out of the box, only adjusting the main volume. Bit expensive, but you can pay what you like for a subw these days!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The sub that doesn't sound like a sub! Usually you want your hifi friends to notice you've bought something and appreciate the upgrade. In this case I debated getting a sub for about a year, I really didn't want a big booming bass, I just wanted a little extra warmth to compliment the revealing (bright?) B&W606s. I don't listen to a lot of bass heavy music and wondered if I was making the right choice. With this sub (like any) if you wanted to you could turn it up, make the crossover frequency high and have a big muddy sound. And initially I did want to hear the sub and had it too loud, and some friends I'm sure would be 'go on turn it up, let's get trousers flapping'. But the beauty here is that once you get that out your system there are ample tuning options and settings to just make the sound seem effortless. I think for the first time I've not even wanted people to notice an upgrade. The ideal is for someone to have a listen to my system and say "it sounds amazing, but you've wasted your money with the sub, I can't hear it". It really (really) blends in well with the sound. Bizarrely it's had the most effect on Crowded House songs! Who knew they had that much going on Down There. It's early days and there is lots to twiddle but I'm pretty sure I've made the right call. It's added depth (and clarity in depth) to everything. I've only knocked a mark off as a personal preference because there is SOmany things to twiddle. I've gone from a cd player with no settings, to a DAC with no filters, to an amp with no balance or tone controls to a sub with multiple things to dial in. It's brilliant because it means it will work with many systems and settings. But it is not plug and play. You will need to experiment, as I still am.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tight Punchy Bass I bought this to replace a Monitor Audio MRW-10 .. mainly due to the fact it was much more compact and would fit in a smaller space. It goes without saying that all B&W kit comes with a degree of assumed quality, but i was not expecting such a small sub to be as good as it was. The sub packs a punch and produces a depth of sound you can actually feel that far exceeds any expectations! I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a small quality sub for a medium sided room. (bonus that it came with floor spikes too)
