Floor-standing loudspeaker system
The DM580 is a prodigious floor-standing three-way system in the finest B&W tradition, covering the entire frequency range and offering critical enjoyment over the whole spectrum of musical experience.
The rear vented enclosure has been precisely tuned to intergrate with the drive units and simplified crossover. Matrix technology has influenced the critical bracing of the enclosure which is further strengthened by separate mounting the tweeter, bass/midrange and bass units.
B&W's Tweeter technology ensures that the sound remains focused and time sensitive and that the stereo image is presented with unparalleled three dimensional accuracy.
The cabinets feature a specially designed high density front baffle which achieves almost Matrix-like stability in strengthening overall enclosure construction. The bevel edges of the front moulding reduce diffraction and improve dispersion. The crossover components use heavy gauge wire throughout and new drivers guarantee not only high reliability but ensure that top specifications are met.
