The new 703 S3 now features our iconic Tweeter-on-Top configuration, transforming its ability to render detail and space.

That breakthrough, plus its decoupled FST Continuum cone midrange driver – enhanced by the addition of our revolutionary new Biomimetic Suspension – combine to make 703 S3 an exceptional loudspeaker.

Its twin Aerofoil Profile bass drivers mean it can fill even the largest rooms with full bodied, realistic sound.

Studio Sound Comes Home
The new Bowers & Wilkins 700 Series is defined by elegance and driven by best-in-class performance. Every model in our most extensive range is inspired by the recording studio and enabled by cutting-edge technologies first developed for our flagship 800 Series Diamond.

The 700 Series contains eight models: there’s a speaker to suit every home and every requirement, whether your passion is high-performance stereo, immersive home cinema or a mix of both.

Carbon Dome tweeters
Carbon Dome tweeters are 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.

Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top
The 700 Series features the latest generation of our iconic Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top housing. Its new, more elongated form incorporates a longer tube- loading system to produce an even more free and open sound with high frequencies. The carefully decoupled housing is milled from a single solid block of aluminium to better resist resonance.

Biomimetic Suspension
Sometimes, making a big difference takes unconventional thinking. The transition from our 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.

Decoupled Midrange assembly
Every three-way loudspeaker in the new 700 Series has a dedicated midrange cone using four key Bowers & Wilkins technologies: the Continuum cone, FST, Biomimetic Suspension and midrange decoupling, the latter ensuring minimal interference from the operation of the loudspeaker’s bass drivers.

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.
