Carbon Dome tweeters
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.
Sometimes, making a big difference takes unconventional thinking. The transition from B&W's famous yellow Aramid Fibre midrange cones to B&W's Continuum cone technology resulted in a massive improvement to midrange performance. Now, we’ve turned B&W's attention to another crucial element in a loudspeaker cone: the fabric spider. The new Biomimetic Suspension revolutionises midrange cone performance by greatly reducing the unwanted air pressure and coloration that a conventional fabric spider can generate. The result? Midrange transparency you wouldn’t believe possible.
Engineered With Care
Thanks to its composite construction, the Continuum™ cone avoids the abrupt transitions in behaviour that can impair the performance of a conventional drive unit. The result is a more open, neutral performance that delivers voices and instruments with precision and transparency.
The new 700 Series features a curved front baffle for the first time. This allows the midrange and bass drivers to be located in individual pod-type housings that sit proud of the speaker baffle. When combined with the curvature of the structure, this new approach – derived from the 800 Series Diamond – reduces the audible impact of the cabinet, creating a cleaner, more open and more immersive sound.
If you are looking to create a full home theatre system using the Bowers & Wilkins 700 S3 Series of speakers, then you might notice that there is no official subwoofer in the range. Fear not, we have you covered.
I highly recommend the Bowers & Wilkins DB4S Subwoofer is the perfect sonic match for this series. If you would like some advice on the right models for the size of your room, you can get in touch here for some extra guidance. We would be happy to help.
