Bowers & Wilkins 702 S2 Floor-standing speaker
The Bowers & Wilkins 702 S2 Floor-standing speaker has three dedicated Aerofoil™ Profile bass drivers, a Continuum™ cone, and a solid body tweeter housing on top, 702 S2 brings the goosebump-inducing clarity and detail of studio-quality sound to your home audio set-up.
A house for high frequencies
Milled from a solid block of aluminium, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimised housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.
Carbon Dome tweeters are purpose-built for the 700 Series. Delivering a dramatic improvement on the aluminium double dome tweeter, they raise the breakup threshold to 47kHz, for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail.
Truly amazing sound
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone midrange driver.
Clean and clear
The midrange drivers in these floor-standers feature decoupled design, adapted from a similar system in the 800 Series Diamond. Decoupling reduces cabinet coloration, and boosts midrange clarity.
A triumph of science
Developed using advanced computer modeling techniques, the Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone has variable thickness, providing stiffness and rigidity where it’s needed most. The result: deep and dynamic bass.
