This uncompromising BOWERS & WILKINS FP38849 702 S2 Floorstanding Speaker - Gloss Black reveals subtle nuances in music others miss. Its high performance features include a solid body tweeter-on-top design.
Music. Movies. Television. 702 S2 promises to transform your living room into a haven of high-quality sound, thanks to its studio-grade technologies trickled down from the 800 Series Diamond.
A house for high frequencies
Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized housing for the tweeter one thats exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.
Carbon Dome tweeters are purpose-built for the 700 Series. Delivering a dramatic improvement on the aluminum 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 Continuumâ¢ cone midrange driver.
Clean and clear
The midrange drivers in these floorstanders 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 its needed most. The result: deep and dynamic bass.
