B&W Matrix 802 Series 3 - Floor-standing loudspeaker system. Very clean. No boxes or packing. (Speaker spikes and binding posts included but not show.) Walnut Finish with black grilles. Excellent speaker for the price range. Been experimenting with speakers and while the choice was tough these were a tight runner up to a pair of Dahlquist DQ-20.
Local Pick up. (Willing to meet half way in NY/NJ/CT Tristate Area.)
● The Matrix 802 has a highly linear, high efficiency motor system which delivers the long throw and symmetrical field required to produce an outstanding low frequency response.
● The Matrix 802 shares many of the key attributes of the Matrix 801. Its only real difference is size. Although only slightly taller than the Matrix 801, it occupies less than half the floor space. The Matrix 802 is therefore the natural choice where floorspace is limited, but the demand is still for a superb studio quality 3-way monitor.
Kevlar®: B&W developed and patented the method of using Kevlar® for loudspeaker cones to reduce unwanted standing waves. DuPont originally created Kevlar® for use in bulletproof vests.
Tweeter on top: B&W's Tweeter on top technology ensures that the sound remains focused and time-sensitive and that the stereo-image is presented with unparalleled three dimensional accuracy.
Matrix: The basic construction of nearly all loudspeakers is exactly the same - panels of wood-based materials, bonded to form a rectangular box. B&W studied and evaluated how each aspect of cabinet behavior and the efficiency of various materials and construction methods affects sound.
