Bowers & Wilkins CCM683 In-Ceiling Loudspeaker features a 200 mm (8 inch) Kevlar® cone bass/midrange driver and a Nautilus swirl-loaded aluminium dome tweeter that pivots for adjustable off-axis treble response. The CCM683 shares most of the high-performance features of the CCM 682, but has a slightly lower maximum amp power of 130 Watts.
Nautilus™ spiral diffuser
The Nautilus™ tube is one of our most famous inventions - a horn that works in reverse by sucking unwanted sound radiation away from the back of a driver. A tube is all very well for speakers with the space to accommodate it - but what about a small ceiling-mounted speaker? For the tweeters in the CI 600 Series ceiling speakers, we've achieved the same effect by flattening the tube and twisting it into a spiral. So while the speakers are shallow enough to squeeze into the most confined spaces, the sound emanating from the front is just as focused, and just as natural.
Woven fabric cones are at the heart of our Custom Installation Series speakers. Whether the material is glass fibre or Kevlar®, the blend of fibre, resins and cone geometry produces an incredibly well-controlled cone that reduces standing waves, minimises coloration and leaves transient "attack" unblurred. The resulting sound is remarkably clean, clear and dynamic.
