The perfect partner for the 683 S2 in a commanding home theatre system, the Bowers & Wilkins Centre Speaker HTM61 is a true three-way centre speaker which features two 6.5-inch drivers, an FST midrange and a Decoupled Double Dome tweeter.

The HTM61 S2 now features a Decoupled Double Dome tweeter, ideal for delivering the clarity needed for dialogue. The double dome enhances rigidity without adding weight, for a more precise response, while decoupling the tweeter from the main enclosure removes unwanted resonances and vibration. The result is absolutely clear.

Using construction techniques found in the 600 Series floorstanders, the HTM61 S2 also features two 6.5-inch bass drivers that use new aluminium cones, for an ideal mix of punch and precision.

Below the Decoupled Double Dome tweeter and between the two 6.5-inch bass drivers lies an FST midrange driver. And to the rear of the speaker are two Flowports. Together these ensure stunning audio clarity is carried across the entire frequency range, and a new symmetrical design improves integration and sound dispersion. The result is a serious centre speaker - stunning for big-screen action.
