Launching later this year, the limited-edition Bowers & Wilkins 805 Maserati Edition loudspeaker incorporates B&W’s Diamond Dome Tweeter encased in bird’s eye maple and Maserati’s leather covering.
The 805 Maserati Edition loudspeaker features a two-way design with a Diamond Dome Tweeter and 6.5-inch Kevlar midrange driver, while an advanced crossover network controls the drivers. The drivers are housed in a ported enclosure that incorporates B&W’s Flowport technology which is said to minimize port distortion. B&W wraps the speaker in polished wood veneers including bird’s eye maple, along with Maserati’s famous leathers.
The 88dB sensitive 805 Maserati Edition is an 8-ohm speaker that has a stated frequency response of 49Hz to 28kHz. B&W recommends amplifiers rated between 50 watts to 120 watts.
B&W announced that the 805 Maserati Edition loudspeaker will make its debut on the “Seven Notes World Tour” which celebrates the musicality of Maserati’s engines; the tour will make stops in L.A., New York, Tokyo and London.
