Bowers & Wilkins CI 300 Series
the new CI 300 line of architectural speakers from B&W includes one in-wall speaker and two in-ceiling speakers.
With many companies in the consumer audio market struggling to figure out today’s new world order, the U.K.-based manufacturer Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) has taken the bull by the horns by carving out new opportunities for its dealer base through a series of product releases that address everything from computer and personal audio, to traditional custom installation.
B&W’s latest product release aims to fill the custom market’s need for affordable and good sounding speakers that can withstand the rigors of non-traditional room environments. The new CI 300 Series from the British manufacturer is engineered to live in environments such as saunas, indoor swimming pools or anywhere that humidity is an issue. The line features three products: the CWM362 two-way in-wall loudspeaker; the CCM362 two-way in-ceiling loudspeaker and the two-way CCM382 in-ceiling loudspeaker.
All three speakers offer an impedance rating of 8 ohms and sensitivity ratings of at least 89dB. Internally the speakers employ 1-inch soft dome tweeters and polypropylene midrange drivers. Stylistically, B&W adds the speakers feature an industrial design that includes a minimalist appearance with small bezels that help the speakers blend into their environments.
