Bowers & Wilkins 603
Brand Bowers & Wilkins
The largest speaker in the 600 Series. This floor stander is ideal for audiophile stereo and home theatre applications in larger rooms, delivering serious performance and amazing value.
The floor standing speaker in the new 600 Series from Bowers & Wilkins brings pristine sound to your home. The flagship 603 speaker features our award-winning Continuum™ cone technology, which creates a pure and precise soundscape.
Developed over an eight-year period and first featured on our flagship 800 Series Diamond models, the Continuum cone has been integrated into the sixth generation of the critically acclaimed 603 to transform the performance you expect from an entry-level speaker.
The 603 features the proven Decoupled Double Dome tweeter, with a re-engineered assembly for better performance. Our improved paper bass cones combine effortless power and endless low-end with the precision and low-distortion accuracy you’d expect from Bowers & Wilkins.
But the new 603 speaker isn’t just about cleaner sound – it boasts a cleaner look, too. We removed grille pegs and replaced them with magnets, while moving the port to the rear cabinet, creating a modern and premium aesthetic, wrapped with a matte finish. Fill your home with beautiful Bowers & Wilkins sound.
The new 600 Series adopts a refined and upgraded version of the proven Decoupled Double Dome tweeter, offering 38kHz breakup performance. The result? A pure and precise soundscape that allows you to enjoy all the layers of your favourite music.
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone midrange driver.
