Aerofoil bass cone

Our 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, Bowers & Wilkins have added the foam Anti-Resonance Plug for lower distortion and even cleaner bass.

Diamond dome tweeter

One of their most significant accomplishments over the past two decades, the ultra-stiff, supremely accurate Diamond dome tweeter is the perfect combination of low mass, exceptional stiffness and outstanding accuracy. 15 years after they introduced it, they haven’t found a better tweeter dome technology.

Aluminum bass pods

HTM81 D4 mounts two Aerofoil bass cones in twin solid aluminum bass pods, each of which is clamped into an aluminum plate fixed to the stiffest part of its curved cabinet. Formed as single pieces of metal, these stiff structures provide the perfect mechanical location for those powerful bass cones.

The science of sound

Innovation is at the heart of everything they do. They question, examine, understand and then evolve. Bowers & Wilkins use computer modelling to explore and reimagine every aspect of loudspeaker design.
