Product Details from the Brand
Any mention of "us," "we," "our," etc is by Bowers & Wilkins, not Audio46
Flex is performance and flexibility.
Our smallest wireless speaker has big sound. Whether working alone, with a Flex partner in stereo, or as part of a surround-sound system with Formation Bar and/or Formation Bass, Flex has convenience with performance to match.
It’s only small when you look at it
Equipped to excel
Flex uses a 25mm decoupled double-dome tweeter and 100mm woven glass-fiber mid-bass driver to deliver superb hi-res audio.
Flex = muscle
100 watts of Class D amplification means Flex is a big, bold, hi-res listen when it’s working alone.
Add a second Flex to create a compact, high-performance stereo pair. Or form a surround-sound system by adding Bar and Bass.
Music from anywhere
Flex is ready to deal with Bowers & Wilkins Music App, Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay 2©, Bluetooth, Roon and Spotify Connect – to a 24-bit/96kHz hi-res standard.
