Bowers & Wilkins 805 D4 Bookshelf Speakers

805 D4 floorstanding speaker

The 805 D4 stand-mount loudspeaker is the most compact model in the 800 Series Diamond™ range, but it’s still packed with advanced technologies, including the Diamond dome tweeter and the Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top.

Little Diamond

805 D4 might be smaller than its floorstanding siblings, but it’s no lightweight: its beautifully constructed Reverse-Wrap cabinet, stiff aluminium bass pods and 165mm (6.5in) Continuum™ mid-bass cone afford it exceptional bass extension and scale for a relatively compact speaker.

Diamond dome tweeter

One of Bowers & Wilkins 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.

Solid Body Tweeter assembly

Bowers & Wilkins newest Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top housing features an elongated form with a longer tube-loading system, producing an even more free and open sound with high frequencies. The carefully decoupled housing is milled from a single solid block of aluminium to better resist resonance.

Rear-mounted crossover

The new reverse-wrap orientation of the cabinet on 805 D4 means Bowers & Wilkins can place its sensitive crossover components inside their own, dedicated space within the cabinet, which has critical benefits to both performance and serviceability. They have taken the opportunity to upgrade the speaker terminals, too.

The science of sound

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

Go large

Why step up from 805 D4 to 804 D4? First, 804 D4 is a three-way speaker, with twin 165mm (6.5in) Aerofoil™ bass cones – and that has huge benefits to its power and scale. Second, as a three-way speaker, it includes a dedicated midrange cone, so voices and other details will sound more accurate.

Decades in the making

John Bowers wanted the original Model 801 to clearly be superior to anything he had done before: to be the best loudspeaker the world had ever heard. Over the decades that have followed, Bowers & Wilkins constantly evolved his original design, but his passion for perfection continues to inspire Bowers & Wilkins to this day.
