The 805 D3 has gone through a complete redesign. Fitted with a 16.5 cm Aerofoil driver and a Nautilus diamond dome tweeter it offers a bandwidth ranges from 34 Hz to 35 kHz with a response ranging from 42 Hz to 28 kHz at + / – 3 dB. The distortion for a volume of 90 dB at 1 m (which corresponds to a listening experience at a highly comfortable level) is lower than 1 % from 70 Hz and up to high frequencies – this equates to a superb performance profile to say the very least.

The exceptional 805 D3 is the only stand mount loudspeaker in the world to feature studio-grade technology in the form of a Diamond dome tweeter. It’s capable of delivering pristine sound from a relatively slight dimensions, allowing even those people with smaller listening rooms to experience True Sound.
Solid body tweeter
The Diamond dome tweeter is housed in a solid piece of aluminium. This mechanically inert structure provides an incredibly rigid platform from which the tweeter can deliver crystal clear sound.
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.
Diamond Dome Tweeters
Incredibly light, yet unbelievably rigid, Diamond is the ultimate tweeter material. Delivering the most revealing, natural treble you will ever hear.
