Features

Brand Bowers and Wilkins

Product Description

The Bowers and Wilkins 606 and 607 S3 5.1 Speaker Package comprises two 606 S3s for the front channel these are mid-sized stand-mounted units. The two rear channels are provided by two 607 S3s these are the smallest stand-mounted units in the 600 range. There is also an HTM6 S3 centre speaker and an ASW 610 subwoofer.

Titanium tweeters are used to provide precise and clear treble. Additionally, the bass/midrange drivers feature composite Continuum cones for a punchy and accurate sound. Lastly, the speakers have four terminals for bi-wiring if required.

Titanium dome tweeters for well-dispersed high-frequencies.

All of the speakers in the Bowers and Wilkins 606 and 607 S3 5.1 Speaker Package feature titanium dome tweeters. The tweeters deliver music and dialogue with great musical insight as well as precise resolution. Titanium is used by the Aerospace industry and is ideal for tweeter cones.

It is relatively light and resists break-up at high power levels it is also highly heat resistant. Additionally, the attractive and acoustically transparent grille protects the tweeter and acts as a waveguide to widen the high-frequency dispersion.

Composite bass/midrange units.

All of the speakers in the 600 range use composite Continuum coned, bass/midrange drivers. This composite material resists abrupt transitions in the cone movement. This provides a smoother sound. As a result, the sound has great verve and precision with low distortion.

This is especially important with the centre dialogue channel. Lastly, the speakers feature a Flowport bass reflex system to boost the low-frequency response.

Upgraded speaker terminals.

The speaker terminals of the Bowers and Wilkins 606 and 607 S3 5.1 Speaker Package have been upgraded. They all now have bi-wiring capability. Each speaker has four terminals that can be used to run two sets of cables from the single output of an amplifier.

This doubles up the current carrying capability of the cables for a smoother sound. Interestingly, some active speakers use two separate amplifiers to feed the woofer and tweeter.

A word about crossovers.

Most modern speakers are two or three-way designs. This means that a crossover is needed. The crossover splits the audio band into ranges that are fed to the respective drivers. A high pass filter is used to feed the tweeter.

The filters are made up of inductors and capacitors that have the correct value to provide the necessary cut-off frequency. The capacitors have to be of a high quality. Notably, they have to last decades without going leaky or changing value.

Home cinema systems

The Bowers and Wilkins 606 and 607 S3 5.1 Speaker Package can be used to create a 5.1 surround system. The 5 refers to the number of speakers while the .1 refers to a subwoofer. There are two front channels along with two rear channels and a centre channel. More complex surround systems can be made up, such as a 7.1 system. Just add another two 607 S3s for the side channels.
