You are purchasing TWO Bowers & Wilkins 8NT IN-WALL speakers with covers. On the first unit, the larger speaker and one tweeter have been dented. On the second speaker, just the tweeter has been dented. Both speakers have been tested and function properly. This speaker pair retails for 3600$ The dents do not seem to have any effect on sound quality. There are no cracks.
Quite simply, the Signature 8NT is the reference for in-wall loudspeakers. Supremely versatile, it provides a universal solution for those who demand the very best. Whether the application is traditional two-channel audio or multi-channel home cinema – front, centre or surround – this speaker handles all roles with consummate ease and is sufficiently powerful for larger rooms.
Conventional free-standing B&W speakers such as the 800 Series benefit from our unique Matrix™ internal bracing system, which is used to create extreme rigidity in the cabinet. The Signature 8NT’s back box builds on this experience and delivers similar sonic benefits. The back box’s corrosion-free aluminium panels are fitted with bi-directional bracing and vibration damping panels. This dramatically reduces coloration from vibration and aids 3D imaging, helping the listener to hear images formed in the space between the speakers.
The powerhouse of the Nautilus™ derived Signature 8NT comprises a pair of 200mm (7 inch) bass drivers straddling a centrally mounted midrange/high frequency module. With suspensions specifically tuned to the in- wall application and rigid, resin-impregnated composite pulp/ Kevlar® fibre cones, these drivers faithfully portray the most dynamic and powerful signals with ease, yet retain the agility and timing required for complex musical passages. Working in its own isolating chamber, the FST midrange driver with its woven Kevlar® cone is a smaller version of the driver found in our 3-way 800 Series models, renowned for its ability to retrieve the finest detail.
