Reverse Wrap Cabinet
When it came to designing the ideal shape for the 800 Series Diamond cabinet, Bowers & Wilkins did a U-turn. Quite literally. The cabinets are formed from one continuous curve, backed by a spine of solid aluminum, so the sound dispersion is improved and cabinet reflection is reduced.
A great speaker needs a rock-solid foundation. The new 804 D4 uses a downwards-firing Flowport™ exiting on to a solid aluminum plinth complete with a steel constrained layer damping sheet, which controls unwanted resonance. It also has greatly upgraded spikes for maximum stability.
