Incorporating state-of-the-art Bowers & Wilkins innovations such as Kevlar and Nautilus tube-loaded tweeters, the CT700 Series creates cinema sound more lifelike, more immersive, and more powerful than you would have imagined possible.
If you think epic home theatre sound requires an epic budget to match, think again. Our CT700 Series represents nothing less than a revolution in what can be achieved when space and budget are limited. Incorporating state-of-the-art Bowers & Wilkins innovations such as Kevlar drive unit cones and Nautilus tube-loaded tweeters, the CT700 Series creates cinema sound more lifelike, more immersive, and more powerful than you would have imagined possible at this price level.
CT700 brings you all this in compact design that can be adapted for many different home theatre environments, large or small. Forget compromise: with a CT700 system, what you get is nothing less than a genuinely cinematic experience in your own home.
The CT700 Series is built around ground-breaking technologies that belie its entry-level status. Each model in the range features our famous Nautilus tube-loaded tweeters: a highly specialised colouration-reducing technology that was first introduced in our pioneering Nautilus speaker and has since been refined and adapted for use in our most advanced speaker models.
At the upper end of the range, the CT7.3 LCRS includes an FST (fixed suspension transducer) midrange drive unit. Originally developed for our reference-standard speakers, the FST uses a flexible foamed polymer support under the cone rim, designed to absorb the bending waves that, in conventional drivers with rubber roll surrounds, can bounce back and forth between the centre and outer edge of the cone and muddy the sound.
The result? A far more accurate, responsive cone, and the kind of crystal clarity you’d expect to find only in a much more expensive speaker.
A CT700 system is as versatile as it is powerful. The speakers are rigorously engineered so that the timbre and overall dynamic characteristics of each model in the range matches precisely. This means you can build your own CT700 home theater sound system using any combination of models in any position.
Designed to be installed into concealed locations behind acoustically transparent screens or custom cabinetry, each speaker in the range is finished in durable matt black and comes with blue Kevlar drive unit cones, which help to eliminate any unwanted reflections from projectors or other light sources. So while you can’t fail to notice the incredible sound quality, the speakers themselves are all but invisible.
Not all of us have the luxury of a dedicated home theatre room large enough to accommodate a full CT700 system. So it’s useful to know that, with the CT700 Series, you have the option of combining the system with speakers in our Custom Installation range. Designed to fit flush into wall or ceiling cavities, Custom Installation speakers make a good – and equally discreet – substitute for CT700 speakers in positions where space for cabinets is limited.
For in-wall speakers, you could choose between the CWM 8180, with its high-end spec including a Kevlar FST midrange driver and 200mm Rohacell bass driver, or the CWM DS8, which can switch between dipole and conventional surround modes at the push of a remote-control button. In-ceiling options include the highly adjustable CCM 817, or the CCM 818, which combines great sound directionality with a 200mm Kevlar cone.
