New Shape in Sound
The most compact-headed model Bowers & Wilkins has ever made, the 803 D3 Diamond Series Floorstanding Loudspeaker boasts many of the qualities of its larger siblings, but in a room-friendly size.
The 803 D3 is an elegant floorstander, delivering exceptionally natural and precise sound thanks to a combination of Diamond Dome tweeter, Continuum cone, Aerofoil bass, and a more compact midrange head.
Reverse Wrap Cabinet
Relocating the curve of the cabinet to the front has a double benefit – it allows stronger joints at the back, while also helping sound dispersion across the curve of the baffle.
The Continuum cone delivers pristine midrange performance by effectively negating the break-up behavior that can adversely affect this all-important part of the spectrum.
The turbine head is the ideal shape for sound dispersion, while its internally ribbed, aluminum construction ensures that it is acoustically inert.
Diamond Dome Tweeters
Incredibly light, yet unbelievably rigid, Diamond is the ultimate tweeter material. Delivering the most revealing, natural treble you will ever hear.
