B&W HTM71 S2
Designed to be paired with larger speakers in the range, the B&W HTM71 S2 three-way centre-channel speaker delivers unprecedented power and transparency, for totally convincing voice reproduction.
Solid Body tweeter
Milled from a solid block of aluminium, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimised 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 aluminium 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.
