    Dunno.

    But you don't have to buy a B&W subwoofer just because your speakers are B&W.

    i'd really appreciate any comments on these two subs...have waited 1.5 years for them to become available and intend to purchase one of them within the next 24 hrs

    i'm inclined towards the 650 as it's bigger and also has a bigger cone(12" as against a 10" on the 675)

    :confused:

    LOL, I see. Nice. :cool:

    Haven't heard the ASW650 but the 675 is really nice sub - demo'd it against a REL Q200E and was very suprised by the performance. Definitely was the more impressive of the two, particularly with music (and after I had politely requested that the dude turn the level down by about 50% - think he was going for a "Shock & Awe"-style approach, lol). It's very compact and looks great.

    Any chance of you getting a comparative demo between the two? I imagine the ASW650 might sound a little less strained/forced (you know like when you're sitting on the crapper going *hnnnggg....*?) at low frequencies due to the larger driver/cabinet.

    MuFu.

    thanks
    i have heard good things about the 675 but haven't seen any reviews on the 650
    i think the 675 is a compact replacement for the discontinued compact ASW2500 and that such subs are great for music but don't give the BANG that a bass-lover craves in movies
    bigger the better huh?

    anyway...gonna try for a demo...can hardly wait
    :D :D

    Alternatively, you can purchase your sub through the web. I live in Oman, and I purchased an SVS. The sub arrived within a week. It is excellent and beats anything that is available locally.
