Description

Small wonder
803 D4 may be notably more compact than the 801 D4 or 802 D4, but it still bristles with technical innovation, most obviously in its use of a three-box construction. Its 130mm (5in) midrange cone is carefully isolated from the impact of its bass cones thanks to its Turbine Head enclosure.

Solid Body Tweeter
The latest incarnation of our iconic Solid Body Tweeter-on-Top housing features an elongated form with a longer tube-loading system, producing an even more free and open sound with high frequencies. As before, the carefully decoupled housing is milled from a single solid block of aluminium to better resist resonance.

Enhanced Matrix™
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 803 D4 is our best yet, ensuring optimum scale, power and intelligibility.

Turbine Head
Hear the sound, not the cabinet. We’ve used separate midrange enclosures on 800 Series models from the very beginning: now, our all-aluminium
Turbine Head housing takes the concept to the next level. This phenomenally stiff and inert housing for the crucial midrange cone is carefully damped to avoid unwanted
resonances and decoupled from both the bass enclosure and the tweeter body. The result? The most realistic midrange sound yet.
