B&W CM8 S2 Speakers

The CM8 is a true 3 way floor standing speaker design using a FST midrange drive unit for excellent vocal clarity.

The CM8 Series 2 speakers build on the performance of their predecessors with improvements both internally and externally. 

A higher quality nickel-plated terminal tray combined with wiring from Van Den Hul and a new crossover with Mundorf EVO capacitors adds even greater accuracy, while a newly developed speaker grille and more minimalist drive unit surround ensures that the CM8 S2 looks as stunning as it sounds.

The CM8 S2 delivers a fast powerful full bodied sound whilst only being 165 mm wide -  An ideal floor standing speaker for those wanting the most arresting performance in a more compact room.

B&W have developed many speaker technologies over the years and they have included the "Double Dome" tweeters with "Nautilus" tapered rear tubes to help deliver clean and detailed high frequencies in the CM S2 range as well as their trademarks such as Kevlar cones for the bass and mid range drivers.
