The Bowers and Wilkins HTM71 S2 Centre Speakers is the perfect speaker for integrating into an existing Hi-Fi system. With Carbon Dome Tweeters and a Continuum Cone, this speaker will provide a powerful soundtrack to any of your music, movies or TV shows.

Bowers and Wilkins HTM71 S2 Centre Speaker

The Bowers and Wilkins HTM71 S2 Centre Speaker will deliver superior audio quality thanks to the two dedicated bass drivers and FST Continuum Cone midrange. This speaker can be paired with larger speakers. This speaker will produce exceptional power and transparency, along with improved vocal reproductions for all of your music. Perfect for home cinema setups, the Bowers and Wilkins HTM71 S2 Centre Speaker will provide the ideal balance of high-performance acoustics and living room friendly dimensions.

The Carbon Dome™ tweeter technology implemented within this speaker is brand new and shows improvements through the aluminium double dome tweeter, with more imaging accuracy and finer detailing. The carbon tweeters are a striking feature of the 700 Series and manage to raise the breakup threshold to 47 kHz. The built-in Continuum Cone technology in the HTM71 S2 boosts the overall midrange performance. The woven coated material provides highly controlled break-ups, providing a more neutralized midrange.

The Bowers and Wilkins HTM71 S2 Centre Speaker employs a brand new FEA synchronised aluminium chassis for the midrange drivers. The aerofoil profile bass cone of the centre speaker implements a variable thickness to provide stiffness and rigidity whenever it is needed, thus, as a result, deeper and more dynamic bass can be achieved. This large three-way speaker is designed to be paired with larger speakers in the range, such as the 703 floor standers.

The centre channel, 3-way speaker comes with Bluetooth connectivity, allowing connection of any compatible Bluetooth device. The design uses minimalistic simplicity to ensure it can be easily fitted into any living room with subtle detailing. The vented box central speaker enclosure type can be paired into most contemporary home cinema ecosystems.
