SOLID BODY TWEETER
The 700 Series features the latest generation of Bowers & Wilkins Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top housing. Its new, more elongated form incorporates a longer tubeloading system to produce an even more free and open sound with high frequencies.
BIOMETRIC SUSPENSION
Sometimes, making a big difference takes unconventional thinking. The transition from Bowers & Wilkins famous yellow Aramid Fibre midrange cones to our Continuum cone technology resulted in a massive improvement to midrange performance. Now, we’ve turned our 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.
CONTINUUM CONE
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.
AEROFOIL PROFILE BASS CONE
Developed using advanced computer modelling techniques, the Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone has variable thickness, providing stiffness and rigidity where it’s needed most. The result: deep and dynamic bass.
CURVED BAFFLE
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.
