Bowers and Wilkins HTM62 S2
Brand Bowers & Wilkins
Ideal at the centre of most home theatre systems, the HTM62 S2 is the smaller centre speaker that still excels at delivering power and precision.
Like its bigger sibling the HTM61 S2, the HTM62 S2 now features an improved Decoupled Double dome tweeter design, ideal for delivering the clarity needed for dialogue. The double dome delivers a more precise response, while decoupling the tweeter from the main enclosure removes unwanted resonances and vibration. The result is absolutely clear.
The HTM62 S2 also features two 5-inch drivers that use Kevlar cones, for an ideal mix of punch and precision. The result, combined with the Decoupled Double Dome tweeter, is a centre speaker that sounds simply stunning.
The clarity and power of the HTM62 doesn't command a space premium either. Smaller than the HTM61, it's absolutely at home in just about any setup. And like the HTM62, it can be used horizontally or vertically, depending on space.
