Product Details

Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series Black Ash 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker, Model 683B

The Bowers & Wilkins 683 Floorstanding Speaker is the ultimate choice for discerning listeners looking to create a stereo or surround sound system, but who don't have an unlimited budget. These formidable 3-way speakers are outfitted with some of the best technology B&W speakers have to offer, producing impressive sound that's suitable for large listening areas.

To produce a full range of sounds, the B&W 683 floorstanding speaker employs a quartet of high-tech drivers. Handling the low frequencies are a pair of 6.5-inch aluminum/paper/Kevlar bass drivers, and combined with the front-firing bass port, they put out deep bass you can truly feel. To cover the high end, the B&W 683 speakers are outfitted with a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter which utilizes the renowned B&W Nautilus tube design to achieve frequencies even above the limits of human hearing. By capturing both high and low frequencies so accurately, the 5-inch midrange driver is left with less work to do, so it can more precisely reproduce the ever-important middle frequencies. And it does this with aplomb, thanks to the ultra-stiff Kevlar cone construction and FST technology, which limits transducer travel due to the lessened frequency coverage needed. The result is a driver that puts out ultra-tight middling tones with unparalleled clarity. Simply put, you will be astonished with the frequency response these B&W floorstanding speakers produce; a single pair pumps out crystal clear highs, booming lows, and everything in between.

The all-encompassing nature of the B&W 683 speakers lends a versatility that makes them a great choice for any audio system. Looking for high quality floorstanders to mate with a turntable for a simple, yet sweet stereo setup? A pair of B&W 683s will do the job, and then some. Their bass response eliminates the need for a subwoofer. If you're building the ultimate home theater system, add a 600 Series Center Channel, a pair of B&W 686 Speakers as rear channels and a 600 Series Subwoofer for an unbelievable, enveloping surround sound experience. The great thing about the B&W 600 Series Speaker line is that you can buy a piece at a time, as your budget—or taste—grows. Every piece is matched both sonically and aesthetically, available in a Cherry Red or Black Ash finish.

B&W Speakers have earned their place in the audiophile world as some of the best-sounding speakers available, and one listen to the 683 Floorstanding Speakers and you'll know why. And unlike most upper-echelon audio equipment, the B&W 683 Speakers are priced at a point that makes them attractive to those without an infinite budget.
