Bowers & Wilkins DM602 S2 Speaker User Manual

DM 6 0 2 S 2
Stand-mount/Bookshelf loudspeaker system
Product Summary
The DM602 S2 is a 2-way vented-box system with a woven Kevlar® cone bass/mid
driver which virtually eliminates distortions caused by radial waves travelling back and forth
along the cone. The aluminium dome tweeter produces amazing open sound.
The high quality cabinets are attractively finished in a choice of Black Ash or Cherry vinyl
In common with all other models the grey baffle, moulded in mica-filled polypropylene,
forms a second layer to the wooden baffle adding stiffness and damping.
A review from What Hi-Fi (July 1999) underpinned our belief in the speaker with comments
including, "providing a fantastic level of refinement in a medium sized box and having
enough bass weight and control to satisfy those into rock and dance. Great all-rounders
and an excellent buy”.
