Product Details

Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series Compact Diamond Gloss Black Bookshelf Speaker (Each) - FP37478

The smallest speaker in the 800 Series Diamond range is also one of the most groundbreaking. Packed with cutting-edge technologies never seen before in a speaker of its class, it's the only stand-mounted speaker in the world to feature a diamond dome tweeter. For lifelike spaciousness and detail, no other small speaker comes close.


  • Solid body tweeter
    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 crystal clear sound.
  • Continuum cone
    The Continuum cone delivers pristine midrange performance by effectively negating the break-up behaviour that can adversely effect this all-important part of the spectrum.
  • Diamond Dome Tweeters
    Incredibly light, yet unbelievably rigid, Diamond is the ultimate tweeter material. Delivering the most revealing, natural treble you will ever hear.
