Why to buy Bowers & Wilkins 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker (802 D3) - Gloss Black :

Reveal Your Music

If you are looking for stunning realism, then the 802 D3 is the loudspeaker for you. The beneficiary of all the technical innovation the new 800 Series Diamond has to offer from the innovative Turbine head and Continuum cone to the radical new plinth design at home or in the studio, it will reveal depth and detail in music you never knew existed.

Wolf in sheep’s clothing

Turbine Head

Turbine Head

Hear the sound, not the cabinet. That’s the principle behind our separate head units a feature we introduced when we launched the first 800 Series speaker in 1979. Now, thanks to a radical redesign, the 800 Series Diamond head unit performs better than ever. Constructed from a single piece of aluminium, braced with internal radial fins and with a raised, slimmer profile, the Turbine head is almost totally inert, producing a sound that’s free from cabinet coloration.

Solid Body Tweeter

Vibration is the enemy of good sound. To minimise vibrations, you need components that are as stiff as possible. For the 800 Series Diamond, we created our stiffest tweeter enclosure yet. The tweeter assembly for the new range is housed in a solid piece of aluminium, while an improved gel decoupling system isolates the tweeter from the effects of cabinet resonance. The result? Pin-sharp acoustic detail, and new levels of insight into a musical performance.

Continuum Cone

Continuum Cone

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. And a giant leap forward for loudspeaker design. The Aerofoil bass cone is a perfect example. By using advanced computer modeling and a new syntactic core material, able to produce a cone of varying thickness, with maximum stiffness where it’s needed most. This optimized shape means the cone displays pistonic behavior further up the audible range, producing bass that’s precise, controlled and utterly lifelike.

Reverse Wrap Cabinet

When it came to designing the ideal shape for the 800 Series Diamond cabinet. Quite literally. Instead of a flat-fronted speaker with a curving back, we produced a cabinet with a front and sides formed of 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.

Matrix

Matrix

Matrix provides the backbone for our speakers. It’s an internal structure that works like the bracing of a ship’s hull, with criss-crossed interlocking panels keeping our cabinets rigid and inert. For the 800 Series Diamond, we’ve introduced our most radical rethink of the Matrix concept yet. The internal panels are thicker, solid plywood has replaced MDF, and metal components have been added to reinforce key stress points. All together it’s the most solid Matrix system we’ve ever built.

Plinth

A great speaker needs a rock-solid foundation. By moving the crossover from the plinth to the main body of the speaker, we’ve been able to create a base for the 800 Series Diamond that’s more stable and resonance-resistant than ever. Replacing the original open-box design, the new plinth is constructed from a solid piece of aluminium weighing in at a mighty 17kg. This improves stability by lowering the centre of mass and counter-balancing the weight of the Turbine head.

Diamond: The Super-Material

Diamond: The Super-Material

The properties of diamond are prized in highly specialized industrial applications, from neurosurgery to CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Its unique stiffness-to-lightness ratio also makes diamond the perfect tweeter material. Developed especially for the 800 Series Diamond, diamond tweeter domes push the break-up frequency threshold to a remarkable 70kHz, resulting in superb clarity and detail.
