    B&W HTM6

    Centre channel speaker.

    The HTM6 S3 is small enough to fit into convenient spaces in your home but mighty enough to partner with the 603 S3 floorstanding speaker. It combines our all-new Titanium Dome tweeter with the powerful accuracy and transparency of twin Continuum bass/midrange cones. Celebrate clarity with the HTM6 S3 centre channel speaker.

    Part of a winning team
    As part of the 600 Series S3 range, the Bowers & Wilkins HTM6 S3 centre speaker enjoys unrivalled heritage. The matching 607, 606 and 603 S3 speakers are all class-leaders in their own right and complement this centre speaker perfectly. Not only does the HTM6 S3 match the style and finish of the other speakers, but it’s also the perfect sonic match – meaning you get consistent sound throughout your room.

    The best just keeps getting better
    For around 30 years, Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series speakers have been at the top of their class. Even before the latest S3 speakers were announced, the previous version was still considered amongst the best in its category. With technology derived from the 700 Series, however, the latest 600 Series S3 centre speaker moves the game on to an entirely new level.

    Titanium tweeter for the absolute vocal clarity
    Featuring an all-new titanium domed tweeter, the HTM6 S3 takes a big step up in top-end detail and refinement. Using materials and technologies from the 700 Series, the more advanced driver teases out vocal nuances that are easily missed with other centre speakers. Using a tube-loading system, the tweeter is further isolated from cabinet resonances, reducing distortion to vanishingly low levels.

    Continuum mid-range cone for lifelike dialogue
    First developed for Bowers & Wilkins’ flagship 800 Series, the Continuum woofer design shows exceptional ability for this class of speaker. Improvements to the S3 include a more powerful, lower distortion motor assembly. This further enhances the already impressive vocal response and helps you to hear dialogue more clearly, even when competing against a climactic soundtrack.

    Better on the inside, still handsome on the outside
    The HTM6 S3’s sleek good looks remain largely as before, but inside the cabinet there’s been extensive improvements. Upgraded electronics promote a more transparent and open sound, while the cabinet itself has a new bass port design and is stiffer, both of which reduce resonance.

    Choose your finish
    Always one of the more attractive speakers in its class, Bowers & Wilkins didn’t need to change the timeless style. All that’s left is for you to choose between one of three distinct finishes. Matte black is the classic choice with the all-white version providing a lighter option. For a more traditional style, go for the oak finish with light baffle.
