About B&W 703 S2 Floorstanding Speakers
The B&W 703 S2 is a substantial three-way floorstander built to fill even the largest rooms with full-blooded, realistic sound.
Bring the breathtaking clarity and definition of studio sound home with the new 700 Series. Replacing the CM Series, the range combines studio-grade 800 Series Diamond technologies with purpose-built innovations to elevate home audio to an entirely new level. And all this from room-friendly cabinets designed to fit beautifully into your home environment.
A substantial, uncompromising three-way floorstander built to fill even the largest rooms with full-blooded, realistic sound. Powerful bass lines come roaring to life, while the speaker’s dedicated Continuum midrange driver and Carbon Dome tweeter lend an astonishing clarity to vocals and treble effects. A big speaker in every sense, the 703 S2 has both the grace and power to bring every element of your music to life, from delicate nuances to monstrous bass lines.
The 700 Series is an entirely new range of speakers. Compared with the outgoing CM Series, every transducer has changed and radically improved. To do this, B&W have borrowed some of the most advanced technologies from their flagship 800 Series Diamond, adapting them to suit a more attainable price point. And they’ve introduced entirely new technologies, designed specifically for this range.
Carbon Dome Tweeter: Carbon Dome tweeters are a brand new technology 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.
Continuum Cone: First introduced with the 800 Series Diamond, the Continuum cone represents the biggest step-change in midrange performance since Kevlar. Its woven, coated material provides highly controlled break-up, resulting in a more open, neutral midrange.
Decoupled Midrange: The midrange driver in the floor-standers feature a decoupled design, adapted from a similar system in the 800 Series Diamond. Decoupling reduces cabinet colouration, and boosts midrange clarity.
Aerofoil Profile Cone: The new Aerofoil Profile bass cone has the same variable thickness design as the bass cones in 800 Series Diamond speakers. Developed using advanced computer modelling techniques, it provides stiffness and rigidity where it’s needed most, for deep and dynamic bass.
Bring Hollywood Home
Providing the ideal balance of high-performance acoustics and living room-friendly dimensions, 700 Series speakers are a superlative choice for home cinema sound. Pair them with one of the two centre-channel speakers in the range and the powerful DB4S subwoofer, and you’re set for a truly transformational movie experience.
