    Bowers & Wilkins 700 Series Gloss Black 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker - FP38830

    Looks can be deceiving. Despite its slim dimensions, the 704 S2 has the commanding presence of a much larger speaker, thanks to advanced technologies such as a dedicated Continuum™ cone FST™ midrange.


    • 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.
    • Decoupled midrange
      The midrange driver in the floor-standers feature a decoupled design, adapted from a similar system in the 800 Series Diamond. Decoupling reduces cabinet colouration, and boosts midrange clarity.
    • Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone
      Developed using advanced computer modeling 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.

  • I had an excellent experience shopping at Abt recently for a new washing machine. In addition, the delivery crew was awesome. They set up my new machine and explained all the new features. I would highly recommend Abt Electronics!
