Their range of in ceiling, in-wall and outdoor speakers follow this design philosophy and often incorporate truly innovative quirks and features.

The highly capable CWM8.5 D picks up where the 8.5 left off, offering a superlative audiophile performance from an almost invisible profile. The CWM8.5D is engineered to Bowers & Wilkins extremely high standards to sit as their flagship in-wall design. this model utilises an intelligent 2-way configuration and features a decoupled Diamond dome tweeter (25mm in size) and a 180mm Continuum midrange/bass drive unit. 

The Diamond tweeter design is often regarded as the most accurate high-frequency drive unit available on the market today, comprised of a synthetic diamond diaphragm that's both exceptionally stiff and lightweight, top-end sounds are reproduced with a pure and lifelike response without distortion. The integration of Bowers & Wilkins' new Continuum FST driver technology means that the midrange and bass elements of the audio source are portrayed to the same outstanding quality with lifelike dynamics. 

The backbox of the CWM8.5D followers a similar construction to their award winning traditional 800D series loudspeakers, featuring their Matrix bracing for added rigidity and a heightened level of sonic performance. The backbox also provides the crossover for the speaker, with bi-wirable cables that are guided by the installer to the terminal panel through tubes before connecting to the baffle with a multi-pin connector. The CWM8.5 D has been built to the same dimensions as its predecessor and is compatible with the previous CWM8.5 backbox, making upgrading your discrete audiophile system an easy process. 

Please note that the CWM8.5BB Back Box is required for installation of the CWM8.5 or CWM8.5 D in-wall speakers and contains components that are essential for the speaker to function. The back box is listed here as an individual product for those who wish to have the backbox installed beforehand and for the speakers to be integrated at a later date.
