How to Upgrade B&W 703 Speakers
Upgrading the B&W; 703 is largely a matter of improving room placement. (woofer image by Renato Francia from Fotolia.com)

The Bowers and Wilkins 703 loudspeaker sits in the middle of the B&W line-up. Noted for its unique shape and fixed suspension transducer midrange, the 703 is a speaker equally at home with audio/video receivers and high-end amps. Although upgrading internal components would surely void any warranty, and probably degrade the sonics, there are certain tried and true ways to optimise the 703s.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Measure the distance between the speakers and the main listening position.

  2. 2

    Separate the two 703s from one another, so this distance is equal to the space between the speakers and listening position.

  3. 3

    Angle the speakers in, so the listener is facing the front of the speakers. The speakers will be angled normally around 30 degrees.

  4. 4

    Screw the speaker spikes included with the 703s into the threads in the base of the speakers. These are adjustable to keep the speakers level.

  5. 5

    Set the speakers upright in their new position. Press down firmly on the top of the cabinet to sink the spikes into the carpet.

Tips and warnings

  • Screw in the included white rubber feet instead of the spikes if the speakers are on hardwood or tile floors.
