DM 320; Floor-standing loudspeaker system
Model Dm320 follow in the successful tradition of B&W's 100 and 500 Series loudspeakers, incorporating features normally found in much more expensive systems to improve performance in terms of lower colouration, higher power handling and greater dynamics.
If greater efficiency and bass extension are called for then the DM320 with its larger
enclosure and the 3-way system comes into its own.
Equipped with two 8in bass units in a closed box configuration and the acclaimed magnetic
fluid-cooled, light-alloy domed tweeter offers an extended low frequency range with higher
The use of a aluminium domed tweeter immediately distinguishes the two models. The specially
created 26mm (1in) tweeter enables high power handling to cope with the heavier usage
imposed on modern hi-fi systems. Frequencies in excess of 20kHz are within its range.
Subtle changes to the cabinet such as the tweeter plate, and bevelled front edges of the cabinet,
help produce a dramatically more even frequency response. The B&W tradition of attention to
detail manifests itself other features, such as the reinforced low-frequency driven diaphragm, the
rigid die-cast chassis, and the provision for bi-wiring or bi-amplification.
