The 803 D3 is a completely new speaker. The most compact headed model Bowers & Wilkins has ever made, it boasts many of the qualities of its larger siblings, but in a room-friendly size.

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.

The 803 D3 is an elegant floorstander, delivering exceptionally natural and precise sound thanks to a combination of Diamond Dome tweeter, Continuum cone. Aerofoil bass and a more compact midrange head.

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.
