Product Summary

The Nautilus 805 combines sensuous design with Nautilus™ technology in an affordable bookshelf/stand-mounted speaker.

Visually striking and sonically refined, the Nautilus 805 is our compact entry level Nautilus 800 Series speaker. This is a two-way design, with a 6.5 inch woven Kevlar® bass/midrange unit complementing the free mounted aluminium dome tweeter. The speaker is magnetically shielded to offer an exceptional audio and visual experience in home cinema installations. Specially designed optional stands are also available.

Technical highlights

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. 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. Flowport™: Golf ball aerodynamics theory points the way towards lower distortion reflex ports. Dimples improve the way the air flows over the surface of any object. In the case of reflex ports, they offer a significant improvement over simply flaring the port ends in reducing air flow turbulence at each end of the port; so you get less chuffing noise and less compression at high sound levels.

Speaker Description: Two-way, stand-mounted, reflex-loaded dynamic loudspeaker.
