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.

The exceptional 805 D3 is the only stand mount loudspeaker in the world to feature studio-grade technology in the form of a Diamond dome tweeter. It’s capable of delivering pristine sound from a relatively slight dimensions, allowing even those people with smaller listening rooms to experience True Sound.

Stand sold separately.

Prestige Edition
The high-gloss Santos Rosewood Prestige Edition is finished by hand by skilled Bowers & Wilkins craftsmen in the Worthing factory. The process is labour intensive – requiring significantly more time than a standard 800 Series model to manufacture. Each Santos Rosewood Prestige Edition loudspeaker will be serially numbered.
