The Decoupled Double Dome tweeter found in the 685 S2, and the rest of the new 600 Series, is technology taken straight from our award-winning CM10 speaker. A dual-layer design combines a thin aluminium dome for lightness and a thicker aluminium ring for rigidity – the result is absolutely stunning, with far greater clarity in the audible spectrum.
The tweeter is also decoupled from the main cabinet, kept physically separate in its own cavity with a ring of gel cushioning it from vibrations. This improves imaging and dispersion for a more natural, spacious treble.
As well as a decoupled, double dome aluminium tweeter, the two-way 685 S2 features a full-range 6.5-inch driver constructed from woven Kevlar and using Anti-Resonance Plug dustcaps, as seen in high-end Bowers & Wilkins speakers. The result is stunning audio quality from a highly versatile smaller speaker.

Everyone should experience truly great sound. With the 600 Series, everyone can. Combining audio performance, power and price, the 600 Series blends technology from high-end Bowers & Wilkins speakers with engineering solutions unique to the range, to bring the best in audio to everyone.
The 600 Series uses tweeter technology taken from Bowers & Wilkins award-winning CM10 speaker. Double Dome tweeters feature a thin aluminium dome for lightness, surrounded by a thicker aluminium ring for rigidity. 600 Series tweeters are also 'Decoupled' from the cabinet for acoustic independence. The result is treble performance so pure and precise it will take your breath away.
Both the 683 and HTM61 feature improved bass drivers, with a new Dual Layer construction. The result is a cone with a higher break up frequency, for a richer, distortion-free bass response and better integration with the midrange.
Our signature “Fixed Suspension Transducer” drivers help Kevlar cones perform even better. FST's innovative 'surroundless' suspension minimises distortion and gives the cleanest midrange performance in the business.
Achieving such stellar audio performance, at this price, requires careful design. Tried-and-tested technologies from Bowers & Wilkins' high-end ranges such as the Decoupled Double Dome tweeters are seamlessly integrated with new developments, including new Dual Layer aluminium bass drivers. The result is innovative engineering, superb audio performance and outstanding value.

Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series speakers are world-renowned. That's why they're found in leading studios such as London's Abbey Road. The highly developed ears that tuned those speakers are the same ears that tuned the 600 Series.
