Standing just 293 mm tall and 104 mm wide, the W5 doesn’t impose itself on any listening space. Once you listen, you’ll be hooked on just how big the little W5 sounds.


Boasting just 2.8 L of cabinet volume, the W5 really shouldn’t fill your listening space with such grace and ease. Punchy bass comes from a driver capable of 18.5 mm of excursion. A liquid and lucid midrange with an accurate top end emanates from our 3’’ widebander made to spec just for Boenicke Audio. The ambient rear tweeter complements the main drive units and augmented by premium silk-wrapped Litz hookup wiring and WBT NextGen binding posts, this is a very grown-up little speaker.


Expect the usual Boenicke soundstaging as breathtaking as any vast landscape, a liquid midrange, accurate tone and harmonics which combine to connect you to your music in a way that defies what you thought possible.
