Bowers & Wilkins HTM2 D3
Discontinued replaced by HTM82 D4
This highly capable centre speaker is the ideal partner for the smaller speakers within the 800 D3 range.
Models we would suggest 805 D3, 804 D3 and 803 D3
Boasting Diamond dome tweeters, Continuum and Aerofoil cones, crystal clear sound is guaranteed.
The Continuum cone delivers pristine midrange performance by effectively negating the break-up behaviour that can adversely effect this all-important part of the spectrum.
The Aerofoil cone’s variable thickness provides added strength where it is needed to maintain its pistonic shape, delivering rock sold bass.
Bracing is essential in keeping a speaker stable, so the character of instruments comes through cleanly. Developed using computer modelling and constructed from wood ply with metal reinforcement, Matrix offers the ultimate in bracing.
Diamond Dome Tweeters
Incredibly light, yet unbelievably rigid, Diamond is the ultimate tweeter material. Delivering the most revealing, natural treble you will ever hear.

1960s: Humble beginnings
The sleepy coastal town of Worthing in South England might not look like a hotbed of 1960s freewheeling experimentation, but for audio fans it’s a place that’s synonymous with innovation.
Thanks to the first Bowers & Wilkins speakers built here in the early years of the company, music lovers could experience albums such as Sgt. Pepper and Pet Sounds in new, mind-expanding depth and clarity
John Bowers begins assembling speaker systems in the workshop of his electronics shop in Worthing, South East England
Following an inheritance of £10,000 from a satisfied customer, John Bowers sets up his own loudspeaker company
The first Bowers & Wilkins loudspeaker. The profit from P1 allowed the company to invest in new calibration equipment
1968: Domestic Monitors
The DM1 and DM3 were launched to bring high quality audio to more customers, at an affordable price point
1970s: A decade of milestones
With the company established and growing fast, Bowers & Wilkins developed its reputation for innovative design backed up by world-leading R&D.
They introduced new forms and design concepts including Tweeter-on-Top, new cone materials such as Aramid fibre, and it all culminated in the launch of the iconic 801, soon to become the reference speaker of choice for many of the world’s leading recording studios
With its curved cabinet, the DM70 changed the shape of loudspeaker design
1980s: The application of science
Extensive investment in research led to the establishment of the company’s dedicated R&D facility in Steyning.
The era of MTV pop superstardom and bombastic stadium rock also saw Bowers & Wilkins buck the trend and introduce something small and unobtrusive: the “compact monitor”, or CM1
1990s: Rewriting the rulebook
The 1990s saw the pioneering work of the Steyning research team realised in spectacular fashion with the launch of Nautilus™, a speaker that rewrote preconceived notions of speaker design.
It also saw major product launches at both ends of the spectrum, with the unveiling of the highly regarded entry-level 600 Series and the flagship Nautilus 800 Series
2000s: Expansion in to new categories
The decade that brought us iPods and smartphones saw them embrace the new world with the launch of the iconic Zeppelin.
They also expanded into the car audio category and transformed the performance of their 800 Series with the development of the Diamond-dome tweeter
2015: 800 Series Diamond
The latest version of their flagship introduced a complete redesign and revolutionary new technologies, such as the Continuum™ cone
