Bowers & Wilkins 802 D4 Tower Speakers

$56,999.00 inc GST


The Bowers & Wilkins 802 D4 Tower Speakers are built to similar proportions as the flagship 801 D4.

It offers much of the performance of its sibling, including the same Turbine™ Head enclosure for its midrange drive unit, yet is more affordable overall.

Review

The Bowers & Wilkins 802 D4 produces less inherent sound than virtually any other loudspeaker, and reproduces music as it was originally recorded, completely unclouded.” avguide.ch

Aerofoil™ bass cone

The Bowers & Wilkins Aerofoil bass cone technology remains an outstanding solution to the conundrum of combining low mass and high stiffness in bass cones. Thanks to its carbon-fibre skin and variable-profile foam core. Now, they have added the foam Anti-Resonance Plug for lower distortion and even cleaner bass.

Aluminium top-plate

Every stereo model in the new 800 Series Diamond™ range has a significantly upgraded cabinet with an all-new aluminum top-plate. This also provides a perfect mounting point for all-new Leather by Connolly trim, with luxurious black leather for dark cabinets and light grey for lighter finishes.

Decoupled midrange assembly

Like its floor-standing siblings in the new range, 802 D4 has a dedicated midrange cone using three key Bowers & Wilkins technologies: the Continuum™ cone, Biomimetic Suspension and midrange decoupling, the latter ensuring minimal interference from the operation of the loudspeaker’s bass drivers.

The science of sound

Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. We question, we examine, we understand and then we evolve. We use computer modelling to explore and reimagine every aspect of loudspeaker design.
