With its true 3-channel output, the Bowers & Wilkins Formation Bar delivers crystal-clear sound from all your favourite movies and music.

The perfect speaker for music and movies
Featuring nine, optimised drive units, the Formation Bar delivers spacious and powerful sound. Whether it’s your favourite music or movies soundtrack, Bowers & Wilkins famous speakers produce a depth of sound that most soundbars simply can’t touch. With three dome tweeters and six woven glass fibre cones, clarity and detail is exceptional.

Crystal-clear dialogue from dedicated centre channel
The Formation Bar is a 3-channel speaker, meaning it uses a separate speaker array for the centre channel. This not only firmly locates dialogue to the image on the screen but also helps you decipher muddy-sounding vocals.

Go further with optional Formation Bass and Flex
Impressive as a stand-alone soundbar and wireless speaker, the Bar can be taken to a completely new level with optional Bass and Flex speakers. Add the Formation Bass and the system goes from 3.0 to 3.1. ‘Point One’ may not sound much, but the dedicated subwoofer takes the depth and scale of sound to previously unplumbed depths. Play your favourite action movie and the intensity of sound will have you on the edge of your seat. Add two Formation Flex speakers behind you and, hey presto, you now have full 5.1 home cinema sound – without all the speaker cables. Immersive, cinema sound has rarely been so easy.

Formation sound all around your home
The Bowers & Wilkins Formation system offers high-end sound quality with effortless, multi-room versatility. It uses a patented, robust mesh network for perfect speaker synchronisation all around your home. Set-up is quick and easy and Formation is compatible with all popular streaming systems, including Bluetooth, AirPlay, Roon and Spotify. For the best possible sound, Formation is also compatible with 24 bit/96kHz Hi-Res music files.

High-resolution sound
With the ability to stream up to 24 bit/96kHz, the Formation is capable of streaming at twice the fidelity of its leading competitor. This gives the sound purer harmonics for a more life-like sound. It also means you get to hear your Hi-Res music files to their full potential.

Robust, Formation Wireless Technology
Developed to run independently from your home wi-fi, Formation Wireless Technology delivers an unbeatably stable connection. The more Formation units you add, the stronger the mesh becomes, meaning you can stretch to the furthest parts or your home where wi-fi may be patchy. The mesh also helps deliver perfect synchronisation between all the Formation speakers in your home.

Easy to set up
Simply download the Bowers & Wilkins Home app from the Apple or Google stores and you’re ready to go. Set-up is fast and intuitive, with each additional speaker clearly identified on the app.

Wide-ranging compatibility
Whichever way you choose to stream your music, the Formation is likely to be compatible. With built-in wi-fi and Bluetooth, you can stream from a huge range of sources. Formation is also compatible with the most popular streaming systems and services, including Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect (Premium account required) and the multi-room system, Roon.
