The slimmest floor-standing loudspeaker Bowers & Wilkins makes, 704 S3 still packs a mighty punch. Its twin Aerofoil Profile bass drivers ensure ample extension and scale, while its decoupled Continuum cone FST™ driver delivers crystal clear midrange performance.



A house for high frequencies
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.

Truly amazing sound
Thanks to its composite construction, the Continuum™ cone avoids 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.

Clean and clear
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.

A triumph of science
Developed using advanced computer modelling techniques, the Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone has a variable thickness, providing stiffness and rigidity where it’s needed most. The result: deep and dynamic bass.
