The largest speaker in the 600 Series. This floorstander is ideal for audiophile stereo and home theatre applications in larger rooms, delivering serious performance and amazing value.

The floorstanding speaker in the new 600 Series from Bowers & Wilkins brings pristine sound to your home. The flagship 603 speaker features our award-winning Continuum™ cone technology, which creates a pure and precise soundscape. Developed over an eight-year period and first featured on our flagship 800 Series Diamond models, the Continuum cone has been integrated into the sixth generation of the critically acclaimed 603 to transform the performance you expect from an entry-level speaker. The 603 features the proven Decoupled Double Dome tweeter, with a re-engineered assembly for better performance. Our improved paper bass cones combine effortless power and endless low-end with the precision and low-distortion accuracy you’d expect from Bowers & Wilkins. But the new 603 speaker isn’t just about cleaner sound – it boasts a cleaner look, too. We removed grille pegs and replaced them with magnets, while moving the port to the rear cabinet, creating a modern and premium aesthetic, wrapped with a matte finish. Fill your home with beautiful Bowers & Wilkins sound.


Continuum™ Cone
First introduced with the 800 Series Diamond, the Continuum™ cone represents the biggest step-change in midrange performance since Kevlar®. Its woven, coated material provides highly controlled break-up, resulting in a more open, neutral midrange.

Decoupled midrange
The midrange driver in the floor-standers feature a decoupled design, adapted from a similar system in the 800 Series Diamond. Decoupling reduces cabinet colouration, and boosts midrange clarity.

Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone
Developed using advanced computer modeling techniques, the Aerofoil™ Profile bass cone has a variable thickness, providing stiffness and rigidity where it’s needed most. The result: deep and dynamic bass.
