Bowers & Wilkins 702 S2 Floorstanding Speakers
The new Bowers and Wilkins 702 Speakers are the flagship floor-standing speakers from B&W’s new 700 series. Boasting lifelike sound from even the larger-scale recordings, this speaker will impress you not only with its sound reproduction but also with its ability to fit seamlessly and beautifully within any type of home décor
The new Bowers and Wilkins 702 Speakers are a pair of beautiful new floor standing speakers that offer astonishing clarity, bringing studio sound straight to the comfort of your living room. Replacing the CM Series, the new 700 range from Bowers and Wilkins has combined the technologies found in their previous studio-grade 800 Diamond series with new and purpose-built innovations that have been included to elevate your home audio experience to an exciting new level. All of these innovations and technologies have been packed into a beautiful and room-friendly cabinet that has been designed in order to fit perfectly within your home environment, no matter the décor.
The Bowers and Wilkins 702 Speakers feature a Carbon Dome tweeter placed within a solid-body housing, as well as a decoupled Continuum midrange. These speakers relay the textural details of your music with a finite accuracy that will make even the largest of large-scale recordings sound stunningly lifelike. The 702 Speakers are the 700 series’ flagship floor standers, and they work hard to bring studio-quality sound to your new or pre-existing home audio set up.
The 700 series is a brand new range from Bowers and Wilkins, and as such, new improvements and technological innovations have been incorporated. Compared with the outgoing B&W CM Series, every transducer in the 700 Series has been radically improved. Using the 800 Series Diamond speaker range as inspiration, Bowers and Wilkins have borrowed some of the technology and adapted them to suit a more generous price point.
With a whole new impressive range of technologies, the 702 speakers employ a new FEA-optimised aluminium chassis in the midrange drivers, providing a stiffer chassis, improved control and a cleaner presentation of midrange than that which can be found in the CM series.
An Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone has been included, providing the same variable thickness design as the bass cones features in the 800 Series Diamond speaker range.
These cones have been developed using advanced computer modelling techniques in order to provide stiffness and rigidity where it is most crucially needed, providing deep and dynamic bass as a result.
With decoupled midrange drivers that have been adapted from a similar system once again found in the 800 Series Diamond speaker range, cabinet colouration has been reduced substantially, and midrange clarity now displays some wonderful new improvements.
These speakers also include solid-body tweeters. These tweeters are a high-performance design that has been employed previously throughout the 800 Series Diamond speaker range and its acoustically optimised form has been milled using a solid block of aluminium in order to form an exceptionally inert structure that is resistant to resonances.
Carbon dome tweeters, a brand new technology that has been purpose-built for the 700 series speaker range deliver a dramatic improvement over the aluminium double-dome tweeter that was previously incorporated into earlier speaker ranges. Raising the threshold to 47kHz, these carbon dome tweeters provide pinpoint imaging accuracy and exquisite detail. The Continuum cone, first introduced in the 800 Series Diamond range, has been incorporated into these speakers, and they represent the biggest step-change in midrange performance since the introduction of Kevlar.
The Continuum cone uses woven coated material to provide a highly controlled break-up. Thus resulting in a midrange that is more open and neutral.
