Bowers & Wilkins 801 D4

Bowers & Wilkins 801 D4

The loudspeaker that sets the standard other high-end designs will be judged by for years to come. Endowed with every new technology the 800 Series Diamond™ has to offer, the reference-quality 801 D4 is an instant icon.


801 D4 is defined by a long history of innovation. In each of its incarnations over the decades, the 801 has always been the most advanced loudspeaker that Bowers & Wilkins makes at that particular point in time, a showcase of all their newest technologies and most original thinking. It’s no small wonder it has become an icon.

Matrix bracing uses interlocking panels to reinforce loudspeaker cabinet walls in all directions internally, reducing resonance and creating a more believable soundstage. The Matrix assembly in 801 D4 is their best yet, upgraded with extensive aluminum bracing to reinforce key stress points.

The all-aluminum Turbine Head houses our Continuum™ midrange cone in a stiff and critically damped enclosure to eliminate unwanted resonances. At the same time, it’s decoupled from both the bass enclosure and the tweeter body. The result is perhaps the most realistic midrange sound you’ve ever heard.

The new Biomimetic Suspension revolutionizes midrange performance by greatly reducing the unwanted air pressure and coloration that a traditional fabric spider can generate. The result? Midrange transparency you wouldn’t believe.

Innovation is at the heart of everything Bowers & Wilkins does. They question, examine, understand and then they evolve. They use computer modelling to explore and reimagine every aspect of loudspeaker design.

The 801 D4 is Bowers & Wilkins flagship and the most powerful model in the new 800 Series Diamond range. Its no-compromise design includes all their most advanced technologies in their purest, most optimized form alongside crossover components of the highest quality. If you want the very best in a reference loudspeaker, this is it.
