Bowers & Wilkins XT4 Speakers in Aluminum


These don't come up very often and this might be the first pair we've ever seen in person.

These are the original UK version featuring an exotic silver extruded aluminum finish.

Don't be fooled by the diminutive cabinet and woofer size. These speakers can rock like a speaker twice the size likely due to B&W's engineering prowess.

Cosmetically the cabinets look great with no signs of use or abuse. The grills have faded a bit but are very presentable. All the drivers are perfect and work as they should in our listening room.

Included with your purchase is the two speakers exactly as pictured. There are soft feet currently installed on both speakers (see last photo). No spikes or other feet are included.

More from B&W:
The XT4 is the perfect solution when contemporary design, minimal visual bulk and outstanding performance are all top of list. XT4 boasts an immensely rigid one-piece extruded aluminium enclosure which carries a top mounted NautilusTM tube loaded 25mm aluminium dome tweeter, a 130mm Kevlar® cone midrange driver, and twin FlowportTM loaded, composite paper/Kevlar® cone bass drivers. The twin bass drivers provide low frequency bandwidth and power handling in abundance giving the XT4 a real sense of scale and dynamics.

Locating the NautilusTM tweeter module on the top of the enclosure achieves perfect, head high positioning, provides wider dispersion for a better image stability, and allows correct phase integration with the midrange driver. And the acoustic quality inherent in the drivers along with the minimal enclosure contribution means that the crossover circuits can be simplified and each separate component optimised by ear for ultimate sound quality.

In either AV front speaker or conventional stereo system roles the XT4’s combination of performance and aesthetic style is unrivalled. Genuine high-end hi-fi with a contemporary aesthectic.
