True to our heritage of uncompromising sound quality, the unique 120-degree elliptical speaker shape was created to hold a full-range of high frequency, midrange and subwoofer components for a true stereo effect, with calculated, angled drivers so sound reaches every part of a room. Stream in 96/24 quality and sync easily with other Formation speakers for a complete high-fidelity, multiroom set up. Formation Wedge, as part of the Formation Suite, is yet another example of how Bowers & Wilkins defines the Highest Form of SoundTM.

Mesh network

Formation products create a mesh network. Each product in this network dynamically chooses the optimal path to route audio-data between products, in order to ensure a robust streaming experience. We have therefore certified Formation products for High Network Availability (HiNA) and conform to the appropriate power requirements set out in the ERP directive.
