B&W (Bowers & Wilkins) CM8 Floorstanding Speakers


Gorgeous, gloss black floorstanding speaker from Bowers.

These just received a brand new set of OEM tweeters, which brings them back to performance levels matching the day they left the factory.

The previous tweeters were working, but were dimpled by little fingers per a report from the original owner.

The gloss finish has no scratches or damage other than the typical light scuffs found in just about every speaker in this finish.

These also come with optional spikes and grills.

From an excellent What Hi-Fi? Review:
+ Striking Looks
+ Amazing Midrange
+ Punchy, Weighty Bass
+ Detailed Treble

"Bowers & Wilkins claims the FST drivers in its elegant CM8 floorstanders allow for ‘the cleanest midrange performance in the business'.

FST stands for Fixed Suspension Transducer and relates to the bright yellow Kevlar cone only having the smallest of surrounds. The idea is that the surround damps the cone optimally to produce the purest possible sound.

The driver setup is a trademark B&W 25mm Nautilus tube loaded aluminium dome tweeters, a 13cm woven Kevlar FST midrange driver and two 13cm paper/Kevlar bass drivers.

The CM8s are biwirable and feature B&W’s Flowports to promote tighter, better-defined bass. Ideally, you should position them in some free space, with a little toe-in.

Stunning midrange performance
We have to admit that the midrange performance is, indeed, spectacular – the clarity of vocals is stunning."
