buying the punchy Kevlar® bass/midrange drive unit from B&W’s legendary 800 Series, the CCM816 in-ceiling speaker, a smaller version of the
CCM818, is designed for home theatre or 2-channel applications. Fitted at a 28 degree angle, the 6.5 inch driver units enable the optimum listening axis
to be directed more towards the listening area. This improves sound quality and imaging in a way that normal ceiling speakers cannot offer.
The CCM816 is a two-way speaker, with a woven Kevlar® driver for the bass and midrange. This technology is utilized on many of B&W’s most-respected speakers, but here a blue finish makes it less attention grabbing than our traditional yellow cones. This 6.5 inch driver means the CCM816 is more compact than the 8 inch equipped CCM818, but shares the excellent sound quality rarely found in a custom installation speaker.
It’s a two-way speaker with a woven Kevlar driver for the bass and midrange. The CCM816 features a 6.5-inch driver, a 1-inch tube-loaded aluminum tweeter and two drivers set at a 28-degree angle to focus the sound on the optimum listening position, which allows the speaker to focus sound on the optimum listening position. However, as with the CCM818, some smart engineering allows the CCM816 to achieve this angle while at the same time sitting flush with the ceiling for a truly discreet finish.
