Description

Built to similar proportions as the flagship 801 D4, the Bowers & Wilkins 802 D4 floorstanding speakers offer much of the performance of its sibling including the same Turbine™ Head enclosure for its midrange drive unit. It’s absolute elegance. The 802 D4’s svelte proportions and beautiful painted or real-wood-veneer finishes make for an elegant living-room companion that delivers an outstanding audio experience, perfect for reference-grade stereo listening and an excellent choice in home theatre applications.

Aerofoil™ bass cone

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, an added foam Anti-Resonance Plug brings 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 aluminium 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.

ONE pair in stock, satin walnut finish. Other finishes available on order.
