Bowers & Wilkins HTM81 Centre-channel Speaker

The largest of the Bowers & Wilkins centre-channel speakers. The HTM81 is designed to be paired with the 801 and 802 D4 and has the capability to match them. The centre-channel speaker is an important addition to any home cinema set up as it allows the other components to do their job.

At the centre of it all

The centre-channel speaker is arguably the most important in home theatre – and the HTM81 D4 has an enviable array of advanced technologies to reinforce that point, including Solid Body tweeter-on-top, a decoupled Continuum Cone midrange drive unit and twin 200mm (8in) Aerofoil bass cones.

Aerofoil bass cone

Our Aerofoil bass cone technology remains an outstanding solution to the conundrum of combining low mass and high stiffness in bass cones, thanks to its carbon-fibre skin and variable-profile foam core. Now, we have added the foam Anti-Resonance Plug for lower distortion and even cleaner bass.

Diamond dome tweeter

One of our most significant accomplishments over the past two decades, the ultra-stiff, supremely accurate Diamond dome tweeter is the perfect combination of low mass, exceptional stiffness and outstanding accuracy. 15 years after we introduced it, we haven’t found a better tweeter dome technology.

Aluminium bass pods

HTM81 D4 mounts two Aerofoil bass cones in twin solid aluminium bass pods, each of which is clamped into an aluminium plate fixed to the stiffest part of its curved cabinet. Formed as single pieces of metal, these stiff structures provide the perfect mechanical location for those powerful bass cones.
