Bowers & Wilkins HTM82 D4
It’s a Wrap
The new Bowers & Wilkins HTM82 D4 may be Bowers & Wilkins most compact centre-channel speaker, but it shares the design DNA of its larger siblings, including the Reverse Wrap cabinet and Matrix™ bracing.
The combination of the two technologies ensures a quieter, more acoustically efficient and better-sounding speaker than ever.
Reverse Wrap cabinet
Instead of a conventional loudspeaker box, their cabinets are made from a continuous curved section of wood, with the drive units mounted at the heart of the curvature.
This stiffer, more inert structure resists mechanical resonances far better and also ensures better dispersion of sound.
Continuum™ cone midrange
Introduced as a huge evolutionary change for them in 2015, the Continuum cone midrange drive has swiftly become a fundamental element in every Bowers & Wilkins loudspeaker.
With exceptionally low noise, it ensures outstanding resolution without coloration or masking of detail.
Decoupled midrange assembly
Bowers & Wilkins HTM82 D4 has a dedicated midrange cone using three key Bowers & Wilkins technologies: the Continuum cone, Biomimetic Suspension and midrange decoupling, the latter ensuring minimal interference from the operation of the loudspeaker’s bass drivers.
The result is outstanding clarity.
