Bowers & Wilkins HTM72 S3 Centre-Channel Speaker


HTM72 S3 is the more compact center-channel speaker in the new 700 Series. It features a Carbon Dome tweeter and twin Continuum cone Mid/Bass drivers. It’s the perfect partner for a home theater system based around the 704 S3, 706 S3 or 707 S3.

Sharper detail

Carbon Dome tweeters are purpose-built for the 700 Series. Delivering a dramatic improvement on the aluminum double dome tweeter, they raise the breakup threshold to 47kHz, for pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail.

Truly amazing sound

Thanks to its composite construction, the Continuum™ cone avoids the abrupt transitions in behavior that can impair the performance of a conventional drive unit. The result is a more open, neutral performance that delivers voices and instruments with precision and transparency.
