Product Details

Bowers & Wilkins CM1 Black Gloss Bookshelf Speakers, Model CM1GB

The partnership of a 130mm Kevlar® cone bass/midrange driver with a Nautilus™ tube-loaded aluminium dome tweeter helps the CM1 handle musical detail with ease across the full frequency spectrum. Despite the size of the speaker, the CM1’s bass is always deep and under control thanks to the CM Series’ magnet and voice coil system technology, which keeps distortion to a minimum. 

The quality of CM Series drive units has made it possible to use minimalist crossovers throughout the whole range. The resulting gentle transition between drivers avoids the unnaturally rapid changes in dispersion that bedevil more complex designs, while the high quality components, carefully chosen after exhaustive listening tests, ensure that as little as possible gets between you and the sound of the original recording. 

All CM Series speakers come with aluminium driver trims. Grilles attach magnetically, so there are no unsightly grille-mounting features to spoil the clean lines of the speaker’s facade. For the finish, you can choose either one of two real-wood veneers in Rosenut or Wengé or highly polished Gloss Black.

Comments about Bowers & Wilkins CM1 Black Gloss Bookshelf Speakers:

I use the speakers just for music with my IPOD. I added a subwoofer, but you really don't need one. These speakers are just like having the live music in front of you. Great product. Highly recommend.

Comments about Bowers & Wilkins CM1 Black Gloss Bookshelf Speakers:

B&W speakers are known for their sound quality as well as their true to life reproduction. This model of speaker is no exception. The highs are beautifully airy and not to bright, while the mid bass has enough body to cover some of the heaviest low frequencies. I personally like the cabinetry, finish and choice of exotic materials used. For a bookshelf speaker, it seams as if B&W approached the CM1 with a "no restraint" mindset, meaning no corners were cut. Another feature I enjoy is the attention to detail on the cable terminals which give you the option to Bi-Amplify the speakers. The build is wonderful, but the true beauty is in the sound. I feel that if these speakers are fed properly and are in the correct setting, you will get the chance to witness what quality reproduction is about. With the right music and setting you can replicate a wonderful and relaxing environment. I feel the B&W CM1 loud speaker is a well rounded product that will be enjoyed for many years to come!
