Bowers & Wilkins CWM7.5 S2 In-Wall Speaker

The Bowers & Wilkins CWM7.5 S2 shares the acoustic configuration of the 707 S2 and like its sibling, it houses a 130mm (5in) bass/mid-range Continuum cone driver plus a 25mm (1in) Carbon Dome tweeter, coupled to a forward-firing FlowportTM for outstanding bass response from a relatively small footprint.

It has a critically formed baffle constructed from glass reinforced ABS plus its own integrated backbox, ensuring retrofittable installation plus optimum performance.

It’s an outstanding performer when used in stereo or multi-room installations, and is equally at home as the rear speaker in a larger theatre application.

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.
