702 Series 2
Music. Movies. Television. 702 S2 promises to transform your living room into a haven of high-quality sound, thanks to its studio-grade technologies trickled down from the 800 Series Diamond.
Milled from a solid block of aluminium, the signature B&W solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimised housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.
Carbon Dome tweeters are purpose-built for all 700 Series models, delivering a dramatic improvement on the aluminium double dome tweeter, they raise the breakup threshold to 47kHz, for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail.
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone midrange driver.
The midrange drivers in 702 S2 feature a decoupled design, adapted from a similar system in the 800 Series Diamond. Decoupling reduces cabinet colouration, and boosts midrange clarity.
Developed using advanced computer modelling techniques, the Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone has variable thickness, providing stiffness and rigidity where it’s needed most. The result: deep and dynamic bass.
