What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

B&W Matrix 802 S3

B&W MATRIX™802 Series 3

Floor-standing loudspeaker system

Product Summary

The Matrix 802 has a highly linear, high efficiency motor system which delivers the long throw and symmetrical field required to produce an outstanding low frequency response. The Matrix 802 shares many of the key attributes of the Matrix 801. Its only real difference is size. Although only slightly taller than the Matrix 801, it occupies less than half the floor space. The Matrix 802 is therefore the natural choice where floorspace is limited, but the demand is still for a superb studio quality 3-way monitor.

Technical highlights

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.

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.

Matrix: The basic construction of nearly all loudspeakers is exactly the same - panels of wood-based materials, bonded to form a rectangular box. B&W studied and evaluated how each aspect of cabinet behaviour and the efficiency of various materials and construction methods affects sound.
