702 Signature Floorstanding speaker – the pinnacle of 700 Series design and engineering.
The 702 Signature is finished in exclusive Datuk Gloss or Midnight Blue Metallic and features optimised crossovers, three Aerofoil Profile bass drivers, a Continuum cone midrange and a Carbon Dome tweeter housed in a Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top enclosure.

Crafted. Honed. Perfected.
702 Signature is the ultimate expression of the 700 Series range. Based on the versatile 702 S2, it transforms sound using technologies from the 800 Series Diamond range as well as featuring bespoke Signature optimisations.

Optimised tweeter housing
Milled from a solid block of aluminium, the Solid Body Tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimised housing that is exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances.

Sharper detail
Carbon Dome tweeters are purpose-built for the 700 Series and deliver pinpoint imaging accuracy and detailed insight in to your music.

Truly amazing sound
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum cone midrange driver.

Clean and revealing
The midrange drivers in 702 Signature feature a decoupled design, developed from the 800 Series Diamond. Decoupling reduces cabinet coloration and boosts midrange clarity.

Refined, articulate bass
The Aerofoil Profile bass cone has a unique wing-shaped form, providing stiffness and rigidity where it’s needed most. The result: accurate, dynamic bass.
