Bowers & Wilkins 704 S3 – 3-way Floorstanding Speakers

The beautiful 704 S3 may be the slimmest floor-standing loudspeaker that Bowers & Wilkins make but it still packs a mighty punch. Its twin Aerofoil Profile bass drivers ensure ample bass extension and scale, while the decoupled Continuum cone FST™ mid-range driver and Carbon Dome tweeter deliver crystal clear midrange and high frequency performance.

This elegant floor-standing loudspeaker sounds fantastic and is easier to accommodate than ever. Perfect for those wanting superlative sound in smaller spaces.

Proprietary drivers

Bowers & Wilkins has continually developed its reputation for innovative design backed up by world-leading R&D, introducing such innovations as Tweeter-on-top, Matrix cabinet construction and a series of unique driver materials. Much of this expertise can be seen in the stunning 704 S3’s.

The 1" Decoupled Carbon Dome™ tweeter was purpose-built for the 700 Series to bring studio-quality sound to your home system. It offers exceptional clarity and reveals the subtlest of detail.

The decoupled 5" Continuum™ cone FST™ midrange driver benefits from the company's Biomimetic Suspension, a design which does away with the traditional fabric woofer "spider," which can introduce midrange inaccuracy. This advanced driver also features midrange decoupling technology to help minimise interference from the twin bass drivers.

The 704 S3’s twin 5" Aerofoil™ bass cones were developed using advanced computer modelling techniques. The Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone has variable thickness to provide the stiffness and rigidity required for deep, musical bass.
