Bowers & Wilkins 685 S2 Bookshelf Speaker

The versatile Bowers & Wilkins 685 S2 is ideal for stereo and home theatre uses in most rooms.  Its performance is enhanced with the addition of a Decoupled Double Dome tweeter.

The tweeter is decoupled from the main cabinet.  It is 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.  The result is stunning audio quality from a highly versatile smaller speaker.
