British sound engineers, Bowers & Wilkins, have launched a new 2-way bookshelf loudspeaker designed to match the 805S and 800 Series loudspeakers from the brand.

Already popular in the UK, the CM1 ‘mini-monitor’ speakers share driver and crossover technology with the 805S and 800 Series models.

Though small, the new speakers offer “colour, energy and beauty” in their sound, and are perfect for users who desire nice aesthetics with a discrete size.

The CM1s use laser-based measuring techniques to optimise linear inductance on the drive units, according to Bowers & Wilkins.

“It is due to this that they are able to draw greater detail from the signal. The crossover uses just a single component for each of its drive units meaning only the slightest of electronic adjustment is needed to balance the system,” said a spokesperson for the company.

 

The speaker is designed to be mounted on a stand or shelf where it may be used with the supplied port sleeve. The port sleeve itself has a hollow centre which alters the balance of the CM1’s low frequency response but retains overall balance.

The 2-way vented box systems with woven Kevlar cones offer a frequency range of -6dB at 45Hz to 50kHz, and sensitivity of 84dB SPL.

The CM1 is available in three wood-inspired veneer finishes – Wenge, Rosenut and Maple – each completed by magnetically attached grilles in either black or dark grey.

The CM1 has a recommended retail price of $1,499 a pair and is available from Bowers & Wilkins dealers from January 2008.
