Boenicke Audio W5 Loudspeakers
£5,145.00 – £8,534.00
The W5 is the entry level loudspeaker from Boenicke Audio.
To say it is compact is an understatement! If you have never seen a W5 in the flesh before I can guarantee it will be a lot smaller than you anticipate and it will sound a lot bigger than you expect as well!
The W5 has an internal volume of just 2.8L. The cabinet is manufactured from solid wood and as with all Boenicke loudspeakers the internals of the W5 is an incredibly enclosure/chamber designed to help give the speaker it’s voice.
The cabinet is 293mm tall, 104mm wide and 231mm deep, they come included with dedicated stands which brings the finished height to just under 750mm tall. Each cabinet weighs in at approximately 3.5Kg
Easy enough to disappear into most rooms and spaces!
With sensitivity rated at 87dB and a 4 ohm impedance they will certainly appreciate some decent quality amplification behind them, the actual number of watts needed isn’t critical but as always the quality of the watts is!
They feature a 5 inch long throw bass driver on the side of the cabinet (hence the name W5), a forward firing 3 inch wideband driver and an ambient tweeter on the rear of the cabinet as well. The binding posts are high quality WBT NextGen and will accept 4mm plugs or spades.
Build quality is quite exceptional, solid wood cabinets as mentioned above, all horizontal lines are rounded and all vertical lines are sharp.
They are available in a choice of woods – Oak Pure, Oak Natural, Oak Pigmented White, Oak Pigmented Black, Core Ash, Ash Pigmented White and American Walnut (this last finish is a cost option). Please see the colour swatch for a better idea of finishes.
As with each speaker in the Boenicke range there are 3 different versions of the W5 available. There is the standard version (£5145.00), the SE version (£6540) and the SE+ version (£8534). Moving from the standard W5 to the SE version you get a number of internal improvements to the speaker and moving from the SE to the SE+ gets you even more. It’s not a small jump in terms of cost between the different versions but thankfully there is a quite a substantial jump in performance as well!
I keep a pair of the W5 SE on permanent demonstration and are available for home loan, but if you would like to hear a standard W5 or the SE+ version it can be arranged with a little notice.
The SE version of the W5 has
- 16-cm spiral resonator installed at widebander and bass driver
- Mundorf Silver-Gold-Oil capacitor for widebander, added Duelund Tinned Copper Foil 0.01 uF bypass capacitor
The SE+ version of the W5 has
- 16-cm spiral resonator installed at widebander and bass driver both parallel and in series
- Harmonix RF-5700 tuning bases at widebander’s magnet
- Added proprietary acoustic phase linearisation network
