Bowers & Wilkins 805 D4 Stand-Mount Speakers

The Bowers & Wilkins 805 D4 stand-mount loudspeaker is the most compact model in the 800 range and packed with advanced technologies, including the Diamond dome tweeter and the Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top. Available now in gloss black. Please contact us for details.


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

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. Their 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.

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. The speaker terminals are upgraded, too. Innovation is at the heart of everything at Bowers & Wilkins. They use computer modelling to explore and reimagine every aspect of loudspeaker design.

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