Bowers & Wilkins DM604S3 Loudspeakers
Introduction Bowers & Wilkins is a company perhaps best known for their reference grade, ultra-high-end 800 Series and Nautilus speakers. The intense research and development (details of which can be read about in Bryan Southard’s review of the B&W 802Ds) that goes into these reference speakers eventually trickles its way down to more affordable speakers, such as the 600 Series 3 speakers, which range from $350 to $1,400 per pair. We had the opportunity to review the largest speaker of this more modest series, the DM604S3, a three-way floor-standing speaker that packs a boatload of energy. For those not familiar with B&W’s top offering, the Reference Nautilus speaker looks somewhat like a giant alien snail with horns. The bass enclosure is basically a tube that is a tapered coil, with three more drivers on top. Each of the upper three drivers has a long tapered tube extending to the rear. The tapered tubular enclosures eliminate nearly ...

AV Education on RHT Building Your Dream Theater: Step 2 - Homeowner's Guide to Construction Contracts Written by Brian Kahn After you have selected the main players (installer, interior designer, calibrator, acoustician) for your construction team as described in Part One of this series of articles, you will need to negotiate the contracts that will govern their work for you. It is an understatement to say negotiating and drafting the contract documents is extremely important to the success of any home project be it an addition, a remodel or a dedicated home theater. The contracts will set forth the guidelines that outline everyone’s responsibilities and scope of work. In most cases with home theaters, the contracts come from an installer or retail firm and everything is, of course, negotiable. In the event that someone does not do what they are supposed to do, the written contract will provide guidance to the available remedies. Not that ...

AV Education on RHT Building The Basic Home Theater Part Two: Setting a Budget for Gear Written by Bryan Dailey and Jerry Del Colliano Welcome. In part one of our series on how to build a badass home theater, we talked about preparing your room, controlling ambient light, choosing furniture and, finally, how to convince your wife (or husband) how to let you install your dream home theater. In this feature, we are going to focus specifically on one of the biggest concerns that any of us have before we take the plunge into a major home theater: cost. The prices below for the systems we have assembled consist primarily of retail prices available at the time of the publication of this article. It is not meant as a definitive guide, but rather as a road map to building the budget for your own gear. Specific prices, tax and shipping will vary, based on when ...

Bowers & Wilkins 802D Loudpeakers
Introduction B&W’s nearly 40-year pursuit of speaker perfection has made it one of the world’s most recognizable names in high-performance loudspeakers. Long ago, with what started as a love for classical music and live concerts, John Bowers set out to create the perfect speaker, one that neither added to nor subtracted anything from the recorded music. Four decades later, true to Bowers’ vision, B&W is still on the cutting edge of technology with their latest offering, the 800 Series loudspeakers. The B&W 802D loudspeaker is a three-way, floor-standing vented speaker system that is available in a variety of real wood veneers, retailing for $12,000 per pair. It measures 45 inches in height, 14.5 inches wide, 22.2 inches in depth. Each speaker weighs a backbreaking 176 pounds. The 802D is comprised of two eight-inch Rohacell bass drivers, one six-inch woven FST Kevlar driver for the midrange and B&W’s coveted diamond dome tweeter. Residing third in the 800 ...
