Product Details

Bowers & Wilkins Gloss Black CM8 S2 Series Floorstanding Speaker, Model CM8S2GB (Sold As Each)

True floorstander performance from a seriously slim speaker. CM8 S2 will slip into any room, yet delivers power and precision from three Kevlar drivers and a Decoupled Double Dome tweeter.


  • With a cabinet just 165mm wide, CM8 S2 will fit in any room. And thanks to concealed fixings and a minimalist, magnetic and protective tweeter grille, CM8 S2 combines subtle stylish looks with modern, practical design.
  • Key to its slim profile is the use of two 130mm Kevlar bass drive units combined with a 130mm Kevlar FST midrange. The FST driver uses "surroundless" suspension to improve crossover with the tweeter, give a faster response and improve accuracy through the midrange.
  • Of course, CM8 S2 isn't designed solely to deliver power in a smaller form factor. With an FST midrange and Decoupled Double Dome Tweeter for increased rigidity and isolation from the cabinet, CM8 S2 is also designed for precise audio response.
