Designed for down-firing, in-ceiling use, CCM7.5 S2 can be used as the left, center, right, and rear-channel rear speakers in a discreet home cinema system. Its configuration includes a 25mm (1in) Carbon Dome tweeter and a 180mm (7in) Continuum cone mid/ bass cone angled to the mounting surface, allowing for easy direction of the whole array towards the listener to ensure they hear the correct balance of sound. That way, dialogue is crystal clear, and special effects come across accurately. Thanks to Bowers & Wilkins's unique QuickDogsTM fixing method, installation is simple and if preferred, the supplied round grille can be replaced with an optional, square grille.

Video Review:

This is a very serious in-ceiling speaker. If you own a 700 series B&W speaker or even some of the top-of-the-line 800 models, you probably know all about the Continuum mid/bass driver they use. B&W developed this special driver a few years ago for their new 800 models and has been moving its great tech into more affordable products like the 700 series.

We were impressed to see the S2 version of the 7.5 added this tech with a 7” version of it. The great news for home theater is in the CCM 7.5 S2, the entire driver assembly is at an angle, so you simply rotate the entire speaker at the listening area when you install it.

Even more impressive is just how low bass response this speaker can reach. Their 3dB down point is 32 Hz which is incredible for an in-ceiling speaker! These move up to the same Carbon Dome tweeter found in the 700 series. For more information on the great tech in these, check out our full overview of the 700 S2 series.

Needless to say, the CCM 7.5 S2 is ideal for Atmos height channels in a serious B&W home theater system. For those of you wanting to do an all-in-ceiling 5.1 system in a family room, 3 of these across the front with their angled enclosure can serve you well as your main front channels and simply add another pair for the rears.
