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.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Speaker spikes
- Tape measure
Measure the distance between the speakers and the main listening position.
Separate the two 703s from one another, so this distance is equal to the space between the speakers and listening position.
Angle the speakers in, so the listener is facing the front of the speakers. The speakers will be angled normally around 30 degrees.
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.
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.
