B&W 702 S2
With three dedicated Aerofoil Profile bass drivers and a solid body tweeter housing on top, the B&W 702 S2 brings the goosebump-inducing clarity and detail of studio quality sound to your home audio set-up.
Solid Body tweeter
Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized housing for the tweeter, one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.
Carbon Dome tweeter
Carbon Dome tweeters are a brand new technology purpose built for the 700 Series. Delivering a dramatic improvement on the aluminum double dome tweeter, they raise the breakup threshold to 47kHz, for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail.
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.
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.
