Bowers & Wilkins 706 S3 Bookshelf Speakers - pair - Gloss Black

Bowers & Wilkins 706 S3 Bookshelf Speakers - pair - Gloss Black

(stands not included)


The excellent 706 series gets an upgrade

Bowers & Wilkins speakers always sound amazing. So I'm impressed that they refuse to rest on their laurels. The 706 S2 was an incredible speaker, and the new 706 S3 is even better — it has an upgraded crossover network for enhanced sonic detail that's even more revealing. You can use them as the stars of a hi-fi stereo music setup, or even as the front-channel speakers in a thrilling surround sound setup.

Proprietary drivers

Bowers & Wilkins has spent decades creating and honing technology that gives their speakers a unique and beautiful "voice."

The 1" Decoupled Carbon Dome™ tweeter was purpose-built for the 700 Series to bring studio-quality sound to your home system. The 6-1/2" Continuum™ cone midrange/bass driver benefits from tech developed for the high-end 800 Series. The cone's composite construction delivers precise vocals and instruments and smooths transitions.

Flowport™ for better bass

Bowers & Wilkins' Flowport technology helps this bookshelf speaker produce solid bass. The 706's bass reflex enclosure features a rear-firing, dimpled and flared port that provides natural bass response without the turbulent "chuffing" that standard ports can create. The speaker includes a two-piece foam plug that can be inserted if you want to adjust bass response to your liking.

Matching stands for optimal performance

These speakers were primarily designed for placement on Bowers & Wilkins' dedicated FS-700 S3 floor stands (sold separately). The stands reduce sound-muddying vibration and place your speakers at the proper height for listening in a seated position — two factors that have a big impact on the sound.
