703 S2

A big speaker in every sense, the 703 S2 has both the grace and power to bring every element of your music to life, from delicate nuances to monstrous bass lines.

A substantial, uncompromising three-way floorstander built to fill even the largest rooms with full-blooded, realistic sound. Powerful bass lines come roaring to life, while the speaker’s dedicated Continuum™ midrange driver and Carbon Dome™ tweeter lend an astonishing clarity to vocals and treble effects.

703 S2

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

Continuum™ Cone 
First introduced with the 800 Series Diamond, the Continuum™ cone represents the biggest step-change in midrange performance since Kevlar®. Its woven, coated material provides highly controlled break-up, resulting in a more open, neutral midrange.

Decoupled midrange
The midrange driver in the floor-standers feature a decoupled design, adapted from a similar system in the 800 Series Diamond. Decoupling reduces cabinet colouration, and boosts midrange clarity.

Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone 
Developed using advanced computer modeling techniques, the Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone has a variable thickness, providing stiffness and rigidity where it’s needed most. The result: deep and dynamic bass.
