Product Details

Bowers & Wilkins Formation Duo Black Wireless Bookshelf Speakers - FP38296

As music to the ears of audiophiles, Bowers & Wilkins introduced the Formation Duo, the first wireless bookshelf speakers capable of creating the unmatched standards of Bowers & Wilkins. With a patented 1" Carbon Dome tweeter, the FP38296 sings crystal clear highs. Precise, clean mid and low range notes pour out of these wireless bookshelf speakers, thanks to the striking 6.5” Continuum cone driver which was originally only available in the flagship 800 Series Diamond speakers.

Unsatisfied with existing wireless audio options, Bowers & Wilkins engineered their Formation® Wireless Technology to carry their superlative fidelity into the lackluster landscape. The Formation Duo partners with other Formation Suite speakers to create a proprietary mesh network, allowing the speakers to sync sound between rooms instantly without relying on your potentially congested home network. The resulting high-fidelity experience is so seamless and immersive that it puts these wireless bookshelf speakers in a class of their own. The FP38296 speakers and the whole Formation Suite revolutionize the wireless soundscape with the Highest Form of Sound™.
