Bowers & Wilkins's value-packed 600 series offers killer performance for the price. The 603 S3 is the largest floor-standing speaker in the line. It features a new tweeter design and material, along with the company's proprietary Continuum midrange cone. Its potent drivers provide room-filling sound along with plenty of refined, musical detail.
Previous iterations of the 600 series used aluminum domes for their tweeters. The 603 S3 features a newly designed titanium dome tweeter that's decoupled from the cabinet for immersive, detailed highs. The company also gave the 603 S3 the same acoustically transparent tweeter grille mesh found on their esteemed Signature series for even greater treble clarity.

The 603 S3 uses a three-way driver layout. Below the tweeter is a 6" midrange that uses B&W's Continuum™ cone FST™, borrowed from the company's high-end 800 series. This cone's unique composite construction gives the driver exceptional resolution and midrange transparency. Below the midrange are two 6-1/2" paper-cone bass drivers that provide rich, articulate low-end.
The rear of the speaker's bass reflex cabinet has a single Flowport™. This proprietary port has a dimpled and flared opening that allows air to move in and out of the cabinet efficiently, reducing the amount of turbulence (also called "chuffing") that can affect some port designs.
