Bowers & Wilkins video factory tour: final assembly

In the fifth of our exclusive series of video tours around the Bowers & Wilkins UK factory, we look at the amazing amount of effort that goes into finishing our 800 Series Diamond loudspeakers before they are sent to customers. These exclusive video provide customers and members of the public with a rarely seen insight into the attention to detail, advanced technology and craftsmanship that are combined to produce the world’s best loudspeakers.

Introduced by Product Manager Mike Gough, this exclusive video looks at the lengths Bowers & Wilkins goes to in order to ensure its loudspeakers are finished to the luxurious levels of quality expected from our discerning customers.

It is during the final process that these speakers are rigorously tested against a reference sample at half hourly intervals throughout the day. This ensures that the speaker the customer gets sounds exactly as the engineers at Bowers & Wilkins intended it to.

And if you missed any of our other videos, you can watch the 800 Series Diamond head unit video, the cabinet manufacturing video, the polishing video and the paint spraying video.
