The B&W 801D is a 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker from B&W's high end 800 Series that handles up to 1000 watts of power.  The speaker is an upgrade to B&W's Nautilus 801 and is designed slightly taller with a curved cabinet that includes Matrix interlocking bracing for rigidness and stands on a heavy cast aluminum plinth.  It features a 6" Kevlar cone FST midrange driver that is housed in a rounded Marlan enclosure and has a 1" diamond dome tweeter positioned above the midrange which is the same layout as B&W's 800D.  However, the 801D has a large 15" Rohacell cone bass driver with a mushroom diaphragm and re-inforced by a down-firing Flowport compared to the dual 10" bass drivers of the 800D.  The diamond dome tweeter is a very high performance tweeter that can handle frequencies above human hearing and works with the midrange and bass to produce realistic three-dimensional sound and a frequency response of 29Hz to 28kHz.  The speaker is available in real wood veneer finishes of Rosenut or Cherrywood and comes with a black cloth grille.  It retails at approximately $9000 a piece.
