CWM8.5 D

CWM8.5 D is engineered to deliver the best possible sound from a relatively compact speaker. A two-way in-wall model, it features a decoupled Diamond dome 25mm (1 inch) tweeter and a single 180mm (7-inch) bass/mid Continuum driver.

The most accurate high-frequency drive unit available, the exceptionally stiff and light Diamond diaphragm ensures pure, distortion-free treble. CWM8.5 D also includes a dark Continuum bass/mid driver for pristine midrange and low end sound.

CWM8.5 D’s back box is fully Matrix™ braced, for extra rigidity and improved performance. The back box also includes bi-wirable cables that are guided to the terminal panel through tubes and connect to the baffle with a multi-pin connector. CWM8.5 D has also been developed to fit into existing back boxes enabling customers who purchased the original CWM8.5 to easily upgrade.
