User Manual (PDF, 20.1MB)

The Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series speakers have undergone several iterations since their introduction as an accessible, visually modest, and high-quality range of speakers. In this latest iteration, Bowers & Wilkins merged HTM62 S2 and HTM61 S2 into one powerful, punch-packing speaker that offers 603-matching levels of performance from a smaller, more preferred size.

 

 

 

Truly amazing sound

Voices are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum cone midrange driver.

Developed over an eight-year period and first featured on Bowers & Wilkins' flagship 800 Series Diamond models, the Continuum cone has been integrated into the sixth generation of the critically acclaimed HTM6. In addition to appearing more sophisticated than the trademark Kevlar yellow, these cones transform the speaker's performance into something far beyond what you might expect from an affordable and compact centre channel.

These eye-catching silver bass/mid cones signal a change in tradition for Bowers & Wilkins. Similar to Kevlar cones, this woven composite material offers more flexibility and driver control. They offer lower-noise and better self-dampening than Kevlar, and the impulse response time is far quicker than previous cone technologies. These 5" drivers are what really separates this centre speaker from any other speaker at this price point, and offers a fantastically rounded bass response that will fill just about any room. 

Complimenting the quality bass/mid drivers is the Flowport™ located at the rear. This trademarked bass vent system includes two port bungs/inserts, which allow you to customise the low-end performance of this speaker to suit your space.

What this means for you is clearer sound, punchier mids, and more controlled bass. Perfect for explosive and clear dialogue in your home theatre, no matter the genre.

 

Layered, beautiful details

The new 600 Series adopts a refined version of the proven Decoupled Double Dome tweeter, offering 38kHz breakup performance. With a re-engineered assembly for better performance, the result is a pure and precise soundscape that allows you to enjoy all the nuances of your favorite movies.

This tweeter technology maintains a dual-layer aluminium diaphragm but has been upgraded with the high-end Neodymium magnet inherited from the 700 Series.

 

A speaker that looks as good as it sounds

The new HTM6 speaker isn’t just about cleaner sound, it boasts a more sophisticated look, too. Bowers & Wilkins have removed the grille pegs and replaced them with magnets, while moving the port to the rear of the cabinet, creating a modern and premium aesthetic, wrapped with a matte finish.

The first thing you'll notice about this speaker when it's set up in your room is the contrast between the polished metal of the tweeter to the sharp lines and corners of the enclosure.

 

Introducing the new 600 Series. Storied sound for every moment

Since 1966, Bowers & Wilkins have made continued technical advancements to design the perfect loudspeaker, and today they bring that heritage to vinyl enthusiasts and movie lovers alike with the new 600 Series. This range turns movie night into an immersive experience, and brings the music you love to life as if the performer is standing in front of you.

You can hear the engineering excellence and passion, and that is why Bowers & Wilkins' speakers are used in leading recording studios around the world, such as the legendary Abbey Road Studios, due to the accuracy they provide. Bowers & Wilkins is a global leader in bringing music and sound to your ears – and your experience – the way it was meant to be heard.

The groundbreaking feature of the latest 600 Series is the integration of Bowers & Wilkins' cutting-edge Continuum™ cone, which creates layered midrange sound with a pristine soundscape. The human ear is naturally tuned into sound in this frequency, and Bowers & Wilkins have understood the power of the perfect midrange presentation for over a generation.

Developed over an eight-year period, the Continuum cone was first featured on the flagship 800 Series Diamond models, including the 800 D3, now in use in Abbey Road Studios. It truly makes your music come alive, delivering the crucial sounds fundamental to any great music experience. The new 600 Series also features the patented and ultra-low-distortion Decoupled Double Dome tweeter to reveal astonishing levels of detail in your music. Whether you immerse yourself in stereo or surround sound, the 600 Series brings you closer to hearing Bowers & Wilkins True Sound.
