The B&W 805 D3 is the only loudspeaker of its size and type to feature studio-grade technology in the form of a Diamond dome tweeter mounted in an inert solid machined aluminium tube.

The 805 D3 features a Continuum cone low frequency driver that delivers a pristine performance by effectively negating the break-up behaviour that can adversely effect this all-important part of the spectrum.

The high frequency unit is an incredibly light, yet unbelievably rigid construction. Diamond is the ultimate tweeter material. The Diamond dome tweeter is housed in a solid piece of aluminium. This mechanically inert structure provides an incredibly rigid platform from which the tweeter can deliver the most revealing, natural treble you will ever hear.

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 technology.

Why is this item collection only?

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.

To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.

Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).

Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.

Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
