Bowers & Wilkins 802 D3
The 802 D3 delivers pristine, high-performance sound in any environment. Its Diamond tweeter partners with a Continuum cone to ensure revealing natural sound that will leave you speechless.
Diamond Dome Tweeters
Incredibly light, yet unbelievably rigid, Diamond is the ultimate tweeter material. Delivering the most revealing, natural treble you will ever hear.
The Turbine head is the ideal shape for sound dispersion, while its internally ribbed, aluminium construction ensures that it is acoustically inert.
The Continuum cone delivers pristine midrange performance by effectively negating the break-up behaviour that can adversely effect this all-important part of the spectrum.
The Aerofoil cone’s variable thickness provides added strength where it is needed to maintain its pistonic shape, delivering rock solid bass.
For some people, it’s enough just to hear music
But some of us want more. We want to experience it – in its purest, most unadulterated form. To savour every nuance and detail. To feel as close to a musical performance as if we were there, with the artist at the moment it was recorded. At Bowers & Wilkins, we’ve been pursuing this dream for half a century. And now we’ve made our biggest leap forward yet. Welcome to the 800 Series Diamond.
This changes everything
Change. It’s what we do at Bowers & Wilkins. Our approach to acoustic design and engineering has always been driven by relentless innovation – by questioning what went before, in order to make things better. With the 800 Series Diamond, our approach was no different. But this time, we’ve gone further than ever before. And the result is something truly radical.
Reimagining an icon
The 800 Series isn’t just another speaker range. For decades, it’s served as the benchmark for high-end audio performance. So how do you improve on the best? Answer: you start from the beginning. So when we set out to create the new 800 Series Diamond, we went back to the drawing board, embarking on one of the most ambitious research and development projects we have ever undertaken.
We’ve introduced a few changes. Eight hundred and sixty-eight of them, to be exact
Using new computer modelling techniques, we examined every single element of the speaker, searching for the smallest weaknesses so we could understand how to overcome them. As a result, almost every component of every speaker has been reimagined from the ground up, from drive unit materials all the way to the position of screw fixings. The new 800 Series Diamond isn’t an
evolution. It’s a revolution.
