Bow­ers & Wilkins has in­tro­duced a sixth it­er­a­tion of its af­ford­ably priced 600 Series speak­ers that in­te­grates tech­nolo­gies pre­vi­ously found only in the com­pany’s flag­ship 800 Di­a­mond Series. All mod­els in the new lineup fea­ture the com­pany’s Con­tin­uum Cone midrange driver and an up­dated ver­sion of its De­cou­pled Dou­ble Dome 1-inch alu­minum tweeter and are avail­able with a matte black or satin white fin­ish.

The flag­ship model in the re­designed 600 series is the 603 tower ($900), which fea­tures two 6.5-inch pa­per-cone woofers and is rated down to 29 Hz (–6 db). Two book­shelf mod­els, the 607 ($300) and 606 ($400), fea­ture 5- and 6.5-inch Con­tin­uum Cone driv­ers, re­spec­tively, while the slim HTM6 cen­ter speaker ($599) sports two 5-inch Con­tin­uum Cone driv­ers.

Three sub­woofers car­ried over from the pre­vi­ous 600 Series com­plete the lineup. The ASW610XP ($1,200) fea­tures a 10-inch driver and 500-watt am­pli­fier, while the ASW610 ($650), has a 10-inch driver pow­ered by a 200-watt amp. Round­ing out the sub op­tions is the ASW608 ($500), which has an 8-inch driver pow­ered by a 200-watt amp.
