BOWERS & WILKINS 800 SERIES DIAMOND

The 800 Series Diamond: A Legend Reborn

The all-new version of Bowers & Wilkins flagship range takes change to another level. With a radical redesign, next-generation technologies and a whole new standard for audio performance, it's more than changed, it's been reborn.

Technologies

AEROFOIL CONE

Using advanced computer modeling and a new syntactic core material, B&W has produced a cone of varying thickness, with maximum stiffness where it’s needed most. This optimized shape produces bass that’s precise, controlled and utterly lifelike.

TURBINE HEAD

Hear the sound, not the cabinet. Constructed from a single piece of aluminum, 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.

MATRIX

Matrix provides the backbone for these speakers. It’s an internal structure that works like the bracing of a ship’s hull, with crisscrossed interlocking panels keeping the cabinets rigid and inert. It’s the most solid Matrix system B&W has ever built.

Design

SOLID BODY TWEETER

Vibration is the enemy of good sound, so B&W created their stiffest tweeter enclosure yet. The tweeter assembly is housed in a solid piece of aluminum, while a gel decoupling system isolates it from cabinet resonance. The result: pin-sharp acoustic detail.

CONTINUUM CONE

After 8 years of development, B&W came up with a midrange cone material that could outperform Kevlar®. Continuum avoids the abrupt transitions that can impair the performance of a conventional drive unit, delivering a more open, neutral performance.

REVERSE WRAP CABINET

Instead of a flat-front speaker with a curving back, B&W formed one continuous curve with the front and sides, holding it together with a spine of solid aluminum. The curved front improves sound dispersion while reducing cabinet reflection.
