Bowers & Wilkins CWM7.3 S2

The Bowers & Wilkins CWM7.3 S2 features an integrated backbox that optimises its performance, cuts down on sound transference through walls and also makes it easy to retrofit.

Its design incorporates twin 150mm (6in) Aerofoil profile bass drivers, a 100mm(4in) Continuum cone FSTTM mid-range driver and a Carbon Dome 25mm (1in) tweeter, all proven technologies shared with the acclaimed 700 Series range ofloudspeakers.

These outstanding tranducers, when combined with high-quality,optimised, components on the crossover and a critically formed baffle constructedfrom glass reinforced ABS, produce a truly remarkable in-wall speaker.

About Bowers & Wilkins

Bowers & Wilkins, or B&W, is a British company that produces audio equipment, most notably loudspeakers. B&W was founded in 1966 by John Bowers at Worthing, West Sussex, England.

In 1982 the company opened a dedicated, purpose-built research centre titled ‘SRE’ or ‘Steyning Research Establishment’ in Steyning, about 10 miles from Worthing. The buildings were fit for audio-related work since they were previously used by SME, the English tonearm designer who felt the downturn in tonearm sales due to the introduction of the new digital media CD. SRE housed a prototype shop and listening rooms, ranging from semi-anechoic to typical small living rooms. Also available was advanced equipment like a laser interferometer and PDP-11/35 computer.

Approximately twenty staff support the research facility. Engineers of note who have worked there in R&D include Ray Greenwood, Dr. Steve Roe, Dr. John Dibb, Dr. Glyn Adams, Dr. Peter Fryer and Laurence Dickie.

The design of B&W loudspeaker cabinets has been done by industrial designer Kenneth Grange since 1975. Morten Villiers Warren became manager of design in the late 90’s when designing the new 800 series of speakers.
