Product Details

Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series Gloss Black 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker, Model 803D3GB

The 803 D3 is the first of its kind: a full-range, studio-quality speaker built for the home, and the most compact headed unit we’ve ever produced. While this elegant speaker comes in a living room-friendly size, it shares the same revolutionary technologies and design features as its larger siblings, including our turbine head and reverse-wrap cabinet.


  • Reverse wrap cabinet
    Relocating the curve of the cabinet to the front has a double benefit – it allows stronger joins at the back, while also helping sound dispersion across the curve of the baffle.
  • 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.
  • Turbine Head
    The Turbine head is the ideal shape for sound dispersion, while its internally ribbed, aluminium 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.
