The Bowers & Wilkins 805 D4 bookshelf speaker is a marvel of audio engineering, designed for the most discerning of audiophiles who demand nothing but the best in terms of sound quality, precision, and design. This speaker is the most compact model in the 800 Series Diamond range, but it packs a powerful punch, delivering exceptional performance and a listening experience like no other.
At the heart of the 805 D4 is the revolutionary Diamond dome tweeter, which is one of the most significant accomplishments in the past two decades of loudspeaker design. This ultra-stiff, supremely accurate tweeter is the perfect combination of low mass, exceptional stiffness, and outstanding accuracy. The result is incredibly clear and detailed high frequencies, with a sense of openness and transparency that allows you to hear every nuance of your music.
The Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top assembly takes the performance of the Diamond dome tweeter to the next level. This latest innovation features an elongated form with a longer tube-loading system, which produces an even more free and open sound with high frequencies. The carefully decoupled housing is milled from a single solid block of aluminum to better resist resonance, ensuring that you get the most accurate and distortion-free sound possible.
In addition to the tweeter, the 805 D4 also features a 165mm (6.5-in) Continuum mid-bass cone and stiff aluminum bass pods, which provide exceptional bass extension and scale for a relatively compact speaker. The beautifully constructed Reverse-Wrap cabinet further enhances the sound quality, providing a stiff and stable platform for the drivers to work their magic. This construction also helps to minimize cabinet resonances, which can color the sound and reduce clarity.
One of the key advantages of the 805 D4 is its rear-mounted crossover. This new reverse-wrap orientation of the cabinet allows the sensitive crossover components to be placed inside their own, dedicated space within the cabinet, which has critical benefits to both performance and serviceability. The upgraded speaker terminals are another advantage, ensuring a secure and stable connection with your amplifier.
Innovation is at the heart of everything that Bowers & Wilkins does, and the 805 D4 is a testament to that. The company uses computer modeling to explore and reimagine every aspect of loudspeaker design, from the drivers to the cabinet to the crossover components. The result is a speaker that delivers exceptional sound quality, precision, and detail, with a level of transparency and accuracy that is unmatched in its class.
The Bowers & Wilkins 805 D4 bookshelf speaker is a true masterpiece of audio engineering, combining advanced technologies, state-of-the-art design, and precision manufacturing to deliver a listening experience that is second to none. Whether you're a music lover, audiophile, or simply someone who appreciates the very best in speaker quality, the 805 D4 is the perfect choice for you.
