If you’re looking for B&W’s inexpensive offerings, the ASW 610XP can add some boom to your budget.

Granted, $1,200 isn’t exactly cheap, but in the land of high-end audio, it’s practically a freebie. As part of the company’s 600 Series, the ASW 610XP packs one 10-inch paper/Kevlar driver and a 500-watt amplifier to do all of the dirty, deep-sounding work.

The end result is a flat response to 25 Hz (-3 dB) with bass extension to 18 Hz (-6 dB). Additional controls include line-in level, low-pass frequency with bypass, bass rolloff alignment, and phase, plus auto-on/off/standby. Other features include B&W’s three-position EQ switching, line-level and speaker-level inputs, and a 12-volt on/off trigger.

Measuring in at 13 x 13 x 15 inches, the ASW 610XP comes in black ash, cherry or Wenge finishes. Grab one now for $1,200.
