The Bowers & Wilkins 1" Decoupled Double Dome tweeter

The 1-inch Decoupled Double Dome tweeter in Bowers & Wilkins 607 speakers delivers clear, distortion-free highs.

Proprietary drivers

A closer look at Bowers & Wilkins' superior technology will give you some idea of why this speaker sounds so good.

The 1" Decoupled Double Dome tweeter features a thin, light aluminum dome, surrounded by a second, thicker ring that reduces distortion. The assembly is decoupled from the mount to isolate it from cabinet vibrations that can color sound.

The 5" Continuum™ cone bass/midrange driver borrows technology from the company's high-end 800 Series. The cone's composite construction delivers precise vocals and instruments and smooths transitions.

Flowport™ for better bass

This compact speaker pair offers surprisingly deep bass, thanks to Flowport technology. Its bass reflex enclosure features a rear-firing, dimpled and flared port that provides natural bass response without the turbulent "chuffing" that standard ports can create. Each speaker includes a two-piece foam plug that can be inserted if you want to adjust bass response to your liking.

Build a complete Bowers & Wilkins system

The 603 is voice-matched to other speakers in the 600 Series, so you can build a seamless surround sound system.

A rich history of audio excellence

Founded in England in the 1960s, Bowers & Wilkins is known worldwide for their innovative hi-fi speaker designs and their premium headphones. Crutchfield is proud to offer a diverse selection of products from this legendary audio brand.

Features

1" Decoupled Double Dome Aluminum Tweeter: The Bowers & Wilkins 607 bookshelf loudspeaker adopts a refined and upgraded version of the proven Decoupled Double Dome Aluminum tweeter (1"), offering 38kHz breakup performance. The Decoupled Double Dome tweeter uses a thin and light aluminum dome, surrounded by a thicker ring, to prevent audible distortion. Decoupling also helps prevent cabinet vibrations reaching the tweeter. Synthetic gel cushions the decoupled tweeter, with the assembly isolated from the mounting hardware. The result is a more natural, spacious, and pure sound.

5" Continuum Cone Midbass/Midrange Driver: The 607 bookshelf loudspeaker features a single 5" Continuum cone midbass/midrange driver, borrowed from B&W's 800 Series Diamond. Thanks to its composite construction, the Continuum cone provides a smooth and accurate sound by avoiding the abrupt transitions in behavior that can impair the performance of a conventional drive unit and cause distortion. As a result, voice and instruments are delivered with purity and precision.

Flowport Technology: The B&W 607 bookshelf speaker utilizes Flowport Technology to create smooth, deep, and efficient bass response. Its bass reflex enclosure features a rear-firing, dimpled flared port that provides natural bass response without turbulent noise or distortion. If you want to reduce the volume of bass without moving the speaker further from the wall, fit the included foam plug into the rear-firing port for lesser bass response.

Note: You can adjust the bookshelf speaker's low-frequency performance using the supplied foam plug. The foam plug is two-pieces, allowing for a degree of fine-tuning using either the outer, larger-diameter piece in isolation or the two parts together. Using solely the outer, larger-diameter foam piece will deliver less bass attenuation than the complete foam plug assembly.

Acoustically Transparent Magnetic Grille: The Bowers & Wilkins 607 bookshelf loudspeaker comes with an acoustically transparent magnetic grille that's easy to install, looks great, and doesn't get in the way of the sound.

Dual Binding Post Terminals: The bookshelf speaker has two sets of binding posts connected by jumper straps. The binding post terminals will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, or banana plugs (single only). There are plastic inserts that will need to be removed from the binding post terminals in order to use banana plugs. Using the dual binding posts terminals, you can choose to bi-amp or bi-wire the speaker (when facing the back of the cabinet - the left set of binding posts are for the high frequency drivers; the right set of binding posts are for the low frequency drivers).

  • Bi-Wiring: Bi-wiring can provide noticeable improvements in the overall transparency of your loudspeakers. Run separate speaker wires to the low & high frequency drivers from a single amplifier.
  • Bi-Amping: Bi-amping allows you to use separate amplifiers for the high & low frequency sections of your loudspeaker for greater dynamic range & lower distortion. We recommend that your separate amplifiers have identical gain to preserve the speaker's voicing balance.

Note: Make sure the jumper straps between the dual binding post terminals are removed when making a bi-amp or bi-wire type of connection.

Mounting & Placement Options: The Bowers & Wilkins 607 bookshelf loudspeakers can be placed on a set of speaker stands (sold separately - see Accessories Tab), a table-top, shelf, or other piece of AV furniture. The included self-adhesive rubber feet prevent unwanted vibration and protect your furniture from scratches (the feet add approximately 0.25" to the overall height of the speaker). The B&W 607 bookshelf speaker should be positioned as close to ear level of the main seated listening position as possible. Moving the speaker further from the walls will generally reduce the volume of bass. Space behind the speakers will also help to create an aural impression of depth. Conversely, moving the speakers closer to the walls will increase the volume of bass.

  • Stereo Setup: The bookshelf speakers should be positioned between 4.9375" and 9.875" apart at two corners of an equilateral triangle completed by the listening area at the third corner. The speakers should be approximately 1.625" away from the back wall, and at least 1.625' away from any side walls.
  • Home Theater: If the bookshelf speakers are to be used for the front channels in a home theater system, position the speakers within approximately 1.625' of the sides of the TV screen to keep the sound image in scale with the visual image. The speakers should ideally be at least 1.625" away from any side walls.

Note: The B&W speaker does not come with a mounting bracket, threaded insert, or keyhole slot to wall-mount the speaker. However, you can use as side-clamp mounting bracket (sold separately - see Accessories Tab) to wall-mount the speaker.

Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series: The Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series consists of a floorstanding loudspeaker (603), two bookshelf loudspeakers (606 / 607), a center-channel speaker (HTM6), and three powered subwoofers (ASW608 / ASW610 / ASW610XP). The 600 Series delivers Bowers & Wilkins' storied sound in simple 2ch stereo applications or more complex home theater setups.

Customer Q&A

Q
Which Yamaha integrated amplifier would you recommend for the B&W 607 speakers?
[ James  Sep 20, 2019 ]

A
Purchased white speakers for use with Denon Receiver.
[ RUSSEL  Sep 20, 2019 ]

I first purchased a Yamaha R-S202 amp (i think it cost $140) and though it played loud I was looking for more clarity in the smaller upper floor townhouse room that I have the speakers placed in. I ended up deploying the Yamaha amp elsewhere and going with a Rotel A14 integrated amp instead. When I messaged B&W directly the told me that the 607's are actually tuned from the factory on Rotel amps so that gave me some more confidence in the sound clarity. The Rotel is $900 new and i found one for $540 on ebay very gently used. That's the route i'd recommend personally but that is totally just based on my listening goals. Yamaha makes some great integrated amps too though so you might be able to go a bit higher end (and a bit more $$$) and get something from Yamaha that sounds awesome. I am also a bit of a "noob" to this space too so take my advice with a grain of salt. Best of luck to you and happy listening! Oh, and the B&W's ROCK! Every night for the past month I just close my eyes and quite literally cry listening to all my favorite music hearing new things I never heard before. If you love music, these things will sing for you. Best investment in audio equipment I've ever made. -John
