805 D4 might be smaller than its floorstanding siblings, but it’s no lightweight: its beautifully constructed Reverse-Wrap cabinet, stiff aluminium bass pods and 165mm (6.5in) Continuum™ mid-bass cone afford it exceptional bass extension and scale for a relatively compact speaker.
Diamond dome tweeter
One of our most significant accomplishments over the past two decades, the ultra-stiff, supremely accurate Diamond dome tweeter is the perfect combination of low mass, exceptional stiffness and outstanding accuracy. 15 years after we introduced it, we haven’t found a better tweeter dome technology.
Solid Body Tweeter assembly
Our newest 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. The carefully decoupled housing is milled from a single solid block of aluminium to better resist resonance.
Thanks to its composite construction, the Continuum™ cone avoids the abrupt transitions in behaviour that can impair the performance of a conventional drive unit. The result is a more open, neutral performance that delivers voices and instruments with precision and transparency
The new reverse-wrap orientation of the cabinet on 805 D4 means we can place its sensitive crossover components inside their own, dedicated space within the cabinet, which has critical benefits to both performance and serviceability. We’ve taken the opportunity to upgrade the speaker terminals, too.
Aluminium top plate
Every stereo model in the new 800 Series Diamond range has a significantly upgraded cabinet design with an all-new aluminium
top plate for even greater stiffness and as a result, even more realism. The same design also provides a perfect mounting point for all-new Leather by Connolly cabinet detailing.
