Designed to integrate within your existing stereo system, the Bowers and Wilkins HTM72 S2 features a wide range of improvements that will produce an even better sound experience than any of its predecessors.

Bowers and Wilkins HTM72 S2 Centre Speaker

The new Bowers and Wilkins HTM72 S2 Centre Speaker has been designed to easily integrate into existing home theatre setups, particularly in smaller rooms that cannot afford full-scale speakers. Using the new Carbon Dome Tweeter technology, the central speaker delivers a radical improvement in tweeter technology, over aluminium double dome tweeters. This B&W speaker raises the breakup threshold to 47 kHz in order to boost imaging accuracy and add more detail to every sound.

The Bowers and Wilkins HTM72 S2 centre speakers can be paired with compact 700 series speakers for better sound quality and powerful audio delivery, and features a 2-way vented box system with flow port for better distribution of sound. With an apt harmonic distortion and frequency range, this next-generation speaker demonstrates an improved quality of sound. Use of the Continuum cone represents the biggest improvement in the midrange performance from a Bowers and Wilkins range of centre speakers since the Kevlar range. With the use of woven, coated material, this centre speaker provides a highly controlled and impressive break up, thus playing a role in creating a more natural, open and neutral midrange. The finely decoupled midrange has been engineered to minimize any occurrence of colouration in the speaker’s cabinet, and as a result, this raises the overall clarity in the midrange. The midrange chassis also benefits from the use of an FEA-optimised chassis that contributes in a neater middle range.

The HTM72 S2 Centre Speaker includes two foam plug and four self-adhesive rubber supporting feet in order to remain sturdy in its placement and reduce any vibrations between the feet and the surface on which it is placed. An update from the CM Series, these speakers employ studio-grade 800 Series Diamond technology to create a better home audio delivery system. The speaker uses space-smart cabinets which feature a robustly built tweeter that delivers better acoustic performance. The design is minimal, emphasizing on simplicity and utmost functionality.
