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 ...

AV Education on RHT Buying a New Home With A Good Sounding Media Room Written by Bob Hodas Introduction A number of years ago, a good friend of mine built a beautiful new house in Napa, California. He had made a bundle working for a professional audio company that had taken the industry by storm with a forward-thinking new product. I went up to visit him and was I ever impressed with his home. It was spectacular in almost every aspect. What wasn’t spectacular were the acoustics of the room in which he set up his favorite speakers. He set the system up in his vast living room, which had an Rt60 (reverb time) that rivaled my old high school gymnasium. I could see for this discerning listener that making his music playback match the grandeur of the overall home was going to take a small miracle.

Bowers & Wilkins 703 Loudspeakers
Introduction There are few audio companies that carry a brand equal to that of B&W. For many years Bowers and Wilkins, a British speaker manufacturer better known as B&W, have produced speakers that are argued to be at the top of each price class they compete in. Over a decade ago, the B&W Matrix 801s dominated the over $10,000 class with a speaker that was referenced by many professionals in the industry. After 801s came the futuristic yet functional Nautilus speakers. This $40,000-plus speaker looked radically different than anything consumers had ever seen. Sonically, the Nautilus was a masterpiece that employed technology meant to reduce internal resonances. This technology had precisely measured and formed tapering tubes with a conch-like shell form on the bottom. Much like Acura did with their flagship NSX sports car, the Nautilus line of speakers trickled down cutting-edge speaker technology to price categories that everyday music and movie enthusiasts could afford. The ...

AV Education on RHT: Bob Hodas' Sound Tips Part 2 June 2003 When we last left off, we had moved your speakers all over the room until you found the spot where they sounded best. Ideally, when finished, you realized that you had improved your room in more ways than simply buying any new piece of gear on the market. I know speaker setup is a daunting task and some of you may be still procrastinating. That’s okay, because I can’t provide all of the necessary information in just one column. There’s more help this month. For instance, did I remember to tell you it would be much easier if you removed those speaker spikes first? No? Shame on me! Those spikes will have an audible effect on the low end, but you don’t need them for the initial placement. Even with my high-resolution gear, I can’t measure any difference in frequency, phase or ...
