DM605 S2

F l o o r- standing loudspeaker system

Product Summary

The DM605 S2 is unique answer to the problem of a system that deserves deep,

controlled bass extension when there is not the physical room to incorporate a separate

subwoofer. The 130w amplifier is used to power the two bass drivers to give truly

extended bass output.

The mid-rangeand tweeter drivers are driven conventionally from the system amplifier, while

the two bass drivers are driven by the internal amplifier to give truly extended bass

performance. Bass performance is further enhanced by Flowport™ technology, which

smoothes the passage of air over both the internal and external port flares to reduce

chuffing and improve detail. A separate line level LFE input can be driven directly from the

subwoofer output on an AV processor or amplifier.

Technical highlights

Nautilus™ Tweeter: B&W's Nautilus Tweeter technology ensures that the sound

remains focused and time-sensitiveand that thestereo-imageis presented with

unparalleled three dimensional accuracy.

Kevlar®: B&W developed and patented the method of using Kevlar® for

loudspeaker cones to reduce unwanted standing waves. DuPont originally

created Kevlar® for use in bulletproof vests.

Flowport™: Golf ball aerodynamics theory points the way towards lower

distortion reflex ports. Dimples improve the way the air flows over the surface of

any object. In the case of reflex ports, they offer a significant improvement over

simply flaring the port ends in reducing air flow turbulence at each end of the

port; so you get less chuffing noise and less compression at high sound levels.
