 Bowers & Wilkins​ 803 3 Way Bookshelf Speakers

The 803 D3 features a Continuum cone midrange driver that delivers a pristine midrange performance by effectively negating the break-up behaviour that can adversely effect this all-important part of the spectrum.

The Low Frequency drivers feature Aerofoil cone’s with variable thickness that provides added strength where it is needed to maintain its pistonic shape.B&W have refined the science of magnet motor design to a fine art. Each of the 803 Diamond’s bass drivers are powered by a dual magnet motor system, creating a more symmetrical magnetic field and reducing harmonic distortion. This delivers dynamic, clean rock sold bass.

Finally the high frequency unit is an incredibly light, yet unbelievably rigid construction. Diamond is the ultimate tweeter material. Delivering the most revealing, natural treble you will ever hear. The tweeter is mounted in a solid aluminium housing known as the "Turbine head" which is the ideal shape for sound dispersion, while its internally ribbed, aluminium construction ensures that it is acoustically inert. A unique quad magnet design keeps the tweeter running cool and smooth, even at the highest frequencies. 

Finally all the drivers need to be mounted correctly! Bracing is essential in keeping a speaker stable, so the character of instruments comes through cleanly. Developed using computer modelling and constructed from wood ply with metal reinforcement, Matrix offers the ultimate in bracing.

 

These Ex-Demo speakers are in excellent condition and come boxed with all accessories.
