Reinventing Matrix™ Bracing

The 801 D4 features the most advanced Matrix™ bracing system yet, utilizing interlocking panels to reinforce the loudspeaker cabinet walls in all directions. This reduces resonance and delivers a more immersive soundstage. The Matrix assembly in the 801 D4 has been upgraded with extensive aluminum bracing, reinforcing key stress points for even greater rigidity.

The Turbine™ Head: Unmatched Midrange Clarity

The 801 D4's all-aluminum Turbine™ Head houses the Continuum midrange cone, providing a stiff and critically damped enclosure that eliminates unwanted resonances. Additionally, the Turbine Head is decoupled from both the bass enclosure and the tweeter body, resulting in an unprecedentedly realistic midrange sound.
