Bowers & Wilkins 705 Signature Edition - Crafted. Honed. Perfected.

Featuring a large 6.5" Continuum cone bass/midrange driver and a Carbon Dome solid body tweeter this compact standmount/bookshelf loudspeaker is finished in exclusive Datuk Gloss and features optimised crossovers, making it worthy of the Bowers & Wilkins Signature nameplate.

Solid Body tweeter

Milled from a solid block of aluminium, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimised housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.

Carbon Dome™ tweeter

Carbon Dome™ tweeters are a brand new technology 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.

Continuum™ cone

First introduced with the 800 Series Diamond, the Continuum™ cone represents the biggest step-change in midrange performance since Kevlar®. Its woven, coated material provides highly controlled break-up, resulting in a more open, neutral midrange.
