Bowers & Wilkins ASW610XP Review

The ASW610XP from Bowers & Wilkins is made to provide the best of both worlds. The ASW610’s little brother, the ‘XP, is just 32cm tall but sounds really enormous owing to its ultra-stiff, long-throw 25cm drive unit and powerful 500w Class D power amp.

The ‘XP has a sealed-box enclosure, like other contemporary B&W subs, with a sophisticated Kevlar/paper drive mechanism that ensures minimum deformation even under the most extreme pressure. Push the B&W really hard, and it will retain a strict precision that few rivals can equal. Even one this rigid, though, has its limitations in terms of what a traditional wooden subwoofer cabinet can do.

Our Verdict


Although the original 606 Subwoofer are good, this new model is definitely superior in every way. That’s a massive surprise a very nice one—given the modest engineering adjustments.


  • Incredible length and power from a very little package.
  • Sounds interesting in both music and movies.


  • Only a small low-frequency extension

These subwoofers have a very regal, serious, yet ambiguous appearance that screams audiophile thanks to front-firing ports, a simple, streamlined style, and a slick, no-nonsense black finish. At first appearance, it is clear that this is a high-end product. In addition to the streamlined, minimalistic style that makes them extremely simple to blend in, this is something your house will appreciate. The one potential drawback to this, if you were hoping for a more “flashy” appearance, is that they won’t really stand out visually. Another great feature is the rubber and spike feet that are supplied. These guarantee a secure footing. The rubber feet ensure that the speaker is sturdy and shock-absorbent on laminate, hardwood floors, tile, or vinyl floors while the spike feet are ideal for carpeted households.

Sound Quality

Sound Quality

The size and placement of the speakers in the room, as well as the space’s acoustics, will have a significant impact on the sound. In fact, the combined effect of these two is so potent that it usually makes no sense to say anything at all about sound quality without mentioning them. It became immediately evident that the subwoofer’s small size has nothing to do with its performance. The sub is there and makes it known that it wants to enhance an excellent home theatre experience. We often watch movies at a loudness of -16dB, and the subwoofer performs admirably at that level. Without sounding crowded or undefinable, the extreme layer is polished yet forceful, while at the same time, low effects with punch and dynamics fly through the air. Even if we increase the level a small bit (by -10dB), the subwoofer appears to have achieved its maximum output. This, however, does not imply that the subwoofer will sound distorted or that it will make an odd noise.

Although the Bowers & Wilkins ASW610XP is a little subwoofer, it performs admirably in both music and movies. We are very taken by the sophisticated display with adequate dynamics and detail. Undoubtedly, the CM S2 series offers a flawless mix when combined. However, in our opinion, it is a subwoofer specifically for smaller home theatres, like ours. A bigger driver with greater power and punch is required for a vibrant home cinema experience if you enter a larger space with a higher volume. The ASW610XP is definitely advised if you have a somewhat limited area and are searching for an inconspicuous subwoofer that can be neatly placed in that space while also being minimalistic.

    The Most Powerful Subwoofer for your Home Theater

    By Harsh Mehta 

    Length of Use: 3–6 months

    Overall Experience:

    The ASW610XP, the most potent 600 Series subwoofer, gives a home theatre or hi-fi system the final touch—or finishing thud. The ASW610 subwoofer uses a 200W amplifier to keep the small speaker cool while moving enormous volumes of air for high-quality low-frequency output.
