Bowers & Wilkins CT8 CC
3-way Closed-Box System Speaker
The CT8 CC center speaker is the perfect match for the CT8 LR model: it shares the same Rohacell® bass drivers, woven FST™ midrange driver and metal dome high frequency driver, but has the bass units either side of the mid/treble pod.
3-way closed-box system. 1 x 1.25" metal dome tweeter. 1 x 6" Kevlar FST midrange. 2 x 10" Rohacell bass. Power handling 1000W.
Centre speaker: CT8 CC
The centre speaker has the identical driver complement to the CT8 LR for precise timbre matching, but rearranged to suit its horizontal orientation. Shown here positioned below the screen, it could equally well be placed above, thanks to the adjustable midrange/tweeter head.
Some things don’t change. For 25 years Kevlar has been outperforming pretenders to its position as the number one material for midrange driver cones. Its woven structure resists the concentric standing waves that blur the sound from conventional cones, and presents the most immediate parts of the sound spectrum in all their true colors. Lending support is B&W’s FST technology: a foamed polymer surround that mirrors the mechanical properties of the Kevlar, absorbing residual resonances and bending waves in the cone. A formidable partnership.
