Bowers & Wilkins CT8 LR Custom Theatre Speaker (Each)
Probably the most technologically advanced, custom installation home theatre speaker the world has ever seen or heard.
CT8 LRStationed to the left and right of the screen are two upright speakers. The CT8 LR features a spherical midrange/tweeter head that can be tilted towards the listener to retain a focused delivery, plus twin10” bass units, as in the surround speaker.
For the Custom Theatre range, we have taken our development of the Nautilus™-derived tube-loaded tweeter a stage further. Following the same principle as our adaptation of the midrange tube (see opposite), we’ve replaced the single, long tube with a whirl of tightly-packed, smaller channels contained in a shallow cup, each of which absorbs a portion of the unwanted sound energy from the back of the diaphragm. Even at frequencies well beyond human hearing, this tweeter sings like a bird.
