Sound System 17
Experience music
like never before

Music brings people closer together; it is a compelling symbol of expression which emotes and elevates. But in order to truly experience every spine-tingling nuance, from rich bass to crystalline treble, you need exceptional, unblemished sound quality. At Bowers & Wilkins, we will never tire from bringing our exacting audio standards to everyone. And that is why Sound System makes our dream a reality.



Each Sound System stack has four rock solid, fully braced low frequency enclosures as the foundation, four mid/high frequency enclosures each incorporating two mid/bass units, a Continuum™ midrange driver like the ones present in our flagship 800 Series Diamond™ speaker range as well as four Nautilus™ tube-loaded high frequency drivers. The result? Unprecedented sound quality and impact.

“It’s phenomenal the effect it can have on people”
JG Wilkes, Optimo.


7th - 10th September

Located in the magical coastal home of Portmeirion in North Wales, Festival No. 6 offers an indulgent line up of music, arts and activities. And this year Sound System will be making its debut, bringing a must-hear musical experience to an entirely new audience. This September the Castell Gardens stage will play host to a unique combination of DJs, spoken word and talks – all of which are powered by Sound System.
