The 802D was the first 800 series utilizing the coveted diamond tweeter developed by B&W and still in use in their 800 series speakers.

It also utilized the famed kevlar midrange driver that adorned the 800 series for decades (and a bunch of recording studios too).

This particular set came to us from the original owner who took exemplary care of them. They present close to new with the slightest signs of use.

Functionally they are perfect and play like the day they left the factory.

Included are the two speakers as pictured, plus the complete set of grilles. 

The speakers feature bearings on the bottom both bases to allow ease of movement. There are no spikes.

These are listed for local pickup only, or we can deliver them about 100 miles away via SkyFi courier for an additional fee.

If you want shipping long distance you'll need to hire the experts from our local Craters and Freighters who will do an exemplary job.

More from B&W:
The 802D uses the same midrange and tweeter layout as the larger 800D and 801D, but its twin 8” bass drivers are housed in a narrower and more compact cabinet, making it ideal for those listeners that value the detail and imaging of the larger systems, but prefer a smaller aspect.

Although the styling is clearly based on its predecessor, the Nautilus 802, it has been revised and enhanced by changes to the plinth, the underside of the cabinet and the way the tweeter sits on the midrange enclosure. For those who prefer to operate the speaker with the grille in place, it’s curving profile detail lifts the whole look of the cabinet.

All three models that have aluminium plinths are supplied with roller glides for easy maneuverability. These may be replaced by optional heavy-duty feet if preferred. This new foot design is double-ended, with a spike for carpeted floors at one end and a clear, non- marking rubber pad at the other for more vulnerable surfaces. A total of 1.6” height adjustment is possible, which allows a few degrees of tilt if necessary.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Speakers:

Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.

After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.
