Bowers & Wilkins ASW850 Speaker User Manual

Active Subwoofer
Sharing the same 1000W amplifier as the smaller ASW 800, the ASW 850 provides
over 50% more output with its larger cabinet and 380mm (15 in) driver, making it the
ideal solution for the largest high-end installations.
Built to the same exacting standards and with similar ingredients as the smaller ASW
800, the larger Matrix-braced cabinet and 380mm (15 in) diameter driver of this
prodigious performer together provide not only the greater output levels needed for
the largest listening rooms, but also plumb greater depths in terms of bass extension.
So, no matter whether you want to experience the thrill of an action film or recreate the
event of a live performance in a large concert hall, the ASW 850 provides the neces-
sary bass extension and power to enable you to do it.
