This is not just another speaker range. Each new generation of 800 Series Diamond is a landmark event for Bowers & Wilkins. The benchmark, the icon; the most advanced range of loudspeakers B&W knows how to make.
The 805 D4 standmount loudspeaker is the most compact model in the 800 Series Diamond range, but it’s still packed with advanced technologies, including that all-important Diamond dome tweeter and Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top. It’s proof positive that small can still be beautiful.
Solid Body Tweeter
The latest incarnation of B&W's iconic Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top housing features an elongated form with a longer tube-loading system, creating an even more free and open sound with high frequencies. As before, the carefully decoupled housing is milled from a single solid block of aluminium to better resist resonance.
Matrix bracing uses interlocking panels to reinforce loudspeaker cabinet walls in all directions internally, reducing resonance and creating a more believable soundstage. Every model in the new 800 Series Diamond benefits from an upgraded Matrix design that combines solid plywood construction with aluminium bracing to reinforce key stress points.
Diamond Dome Tweeter,br> Its unique stiffness-to-lightness ratio makes diamond the perfect tweeter material. B&W's diamond domes are capable of unrivaled acoustic detail, naturalism and spaciousness.
Thanks to its composite construction, the Continuum cone avoids the abrupt transitions in behavior that can impair the performance of a conventional drive unit. The result is a more open, neutral performance that delivers voices and instruments with precision and transparency.
Every stereo model in the new 800 Series Diamond range has a significantly upgraded cabinet design with an all-new aluminium top section for even greater stiffness. The same design also provides a perfect mounting point for all-new Leather by Connolly cabinet detailing, with luxurious black leather for dark cabinets and light grey for lighter finishes.
All stereo models in the new 800 Series Diamond range now use rear-mounted crossover designs mounted on stiff aluminium spines. This isolates the sensitive capacitors from the unwanted effects of air pressure within the enclosure and makes for a very effective heatsink to ensure optimum performance when in use.
Reverse Wrap cabinet
Instead of a flat-fronted speaker with a curving back, B&W cabinets are formed from one continuous curve, held together with a spine of solid aluminium. Fewer joins make for a stiffer, more inert structure, and a curved front means less baffling around the drive units. So sound dispersion is improved, and cabinet reflection is reduced.
