Create studio-quality sound in your home theater with this Bowers & Wilkins three-way floor speaker. Its three bass driver cones play thumping low frequencies within its rigid housing, and the top-mounted tweeter delivers optimized highs in a structure that's resistant to resonance. This Bowers & Wilkins three-way floor speaker is vented for producing lifelike sound.
1" Carbon Dome Tweeter
Pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail resulting from a Carbon Coating on our aluminum Double Dome Tweeter. The closest performance to our Diamond Dome Tweeters.
Solid Body Tweeter
Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances. You'll enjoy smooth and clear highs.
6" Continuum Midrange
Continnum is a woven material that blends control with flexibility. The result is breathtaking clarity right where you need it most- the midrange. Hear voices, guitars and other instruments in a whole new way.
Aerofoil Bass Drivers
Bass drivers need to be light, stiff and not ring like a bell. Aerofoil features incredibly light materials molded into a shape resembling an airplane wing for optimal rigidity and damping. Instead of hearing one-note bass, you'll hear colors and textures with power and control
Decoupling places a shock-absorber between the cabinet and drivers to short circuit detail smearing distortion. The result is greater clarity and pinpoint imaging by reducing distortions that soften and blur what you hear.
3- Way Design
Drivers are optimized for their specialized roles in reproducing high frequencies, mid frequencies and low frequencies. This results in better performance for all sounds.
Reduces air turbulence for clearer bass by dimpling the flared port.
Remains acoustically transparent while protecting the speaker's components.
A:AnswerAny receiver in Magnolia would be fine but here's the thing: you heard the speakers and loved them so the receiver that was being used to drive them is the one to get. I listened to these speakers with several different receivers at Magnolia. Their switching allows for comparison. Each receiver imparts its own "color" on the sound, i.e., the way it processes the sound through its electronics. I preferred the Yamaha A880. I personally did not like the subdued Denon sound or Marantz, but you might. What I do is listen with the various receivers until the sound I like is found. Isn't that how you chose the speakers? Same principle. I find Best Buy salespeople to be very patient and they actually enjoy doing the comparison. Anything 80W and above is fine and can be had for decent money. Wattage doesn't matter unless you're in a concert hall and need to blare it. For in home use 80W is fine. Speaker wire: stick with 16ga 100% copper. For runs more than 25' or so, use 14ga. You need nothing else. Enjoy.
