DI­A­MOND DOMES

Sound + Image - - B & W -

B&W’s fa­mous di­a­mond tweet­ers make use of di­a­mond’s unique stiff­ness-to-light­ness ra­tio — and di­a­mond tweeter domes push the break-up fre­quency to a re­mark­able 70kHz, away from the op­er­at­ing range of the dome so that clar­ity and de­tail be achieved with­out res­o­nances and dis­tor­tion. The en­abling tech­nol­ogy is Chem­i­cal Vapour De­po­si­tion, ‘grow­ing’ di­a­mond like ice crys­tals on a win­dow — but re­quir­ing tem­per­a­tures equiv­a­lent to those on the sur­face of the Sun! B&W worked with the world’s fore­most in­dus­trial di­a­mond pro­ducer to cre­ate the di­a­mond domes used on the 800 Se­ries D3.
