Wireless soundbars are supposed to help give a full, immersive home theatre sound experience in a compact design, but often they fall short, with too few speakers that aren’t placed at an optimum angle due to the limited shape and size. With Formation Bar, Bowers & Wilkins has created a powerful multiroom soundbar that delivers legendary sound quality with wireless streaming flexibility. Bowers & Wilkins engineers designed nine optimized drive units born from their legendary loudspeakers and have them optimally positioned in a sleek design to create a wider, all-inclusive, soundstage, while a dedicated center channel layers in crisp, clear dialogue. The combination makes an entire room “centerstage,” for a truly immersive audio experience that will make your home theatre experience a part of the Highest Form of Sound.

  • 6 mid/bass cones give freer and more open sound than other bars.
  • Use standalone or pair seamlessly with Formation Bass for sofa-shaking power.
  • Dedicated center channel for crisp and clear dialog.
  • Aluminum double dome tweeter ensures high-end sound quality.
  • 9 optimally positioned loudspeaker drive units.
  • Creates a bigger stereo image, for more spacious room-filling sound.
