True Sound Comes Home

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 Bowers & Wilkins have 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 turbine head and reverse-wrap cabinet.

Hear small details in a big way

Mounted atop the main enclosure, the Diamond dome tweeter in its solid aluminium housing delivers space, ambience and precise soundstage imaging.

Less resonance, more dispersion

The Turbine Head’s massive midrange housing is carefully shaped and inert, ensuring voices and instruments are delivered with extreme purity.

Truly amazing sound

Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone midrange driver.

Nimble and powerful

Solid, dramatic bass is delivered through the rigidity and lightness of the uniquely-shaped, variable thickness Aerofoil™ cone.

Braced for impact

Unwanted resonances can blunt the punch of the sound: advanced Matrix bracing keeps the cabinet ultra-rigid and damps out superfluous vibrations.

Stable foundations

Perfect sound is about moving air, not the speakers: a stable plinth makes for easy positioning, then keeps it rock-solid for listening.
