CM1 S2

Small is beautiful, and sounds beautiful with CM1 S2. The smallest speaker in the CM Series combines precise audio with modern design and enough power to fill most rooms.

CM1 S2

The CM1 S2 was the original CM Series speaker, launched in 2006. Now the new CM1 S2 features vastly improved internal components and a Decoupled Double Dome tweeter for stunningly precise and amazingly powerful audio for its size.

The Decoupled Double Dome Tweeter uses an aluminium dome and ring combined for lightness and rigidity, preventing distortion. A ring of gel cushioning decouples the tweeter from the cabinet for improved imaging and dispersion and a more natural, spacious treble.

As well as the new tweeter, every key component inside the CM1 S2 cabinet is improved. Like the rest of the CM Series, it uses new, improved crossovers, internal wiring and input terminals. The results sound stunning for such a small speaker. And it's beautiful: choose from Satin White, Gloss Black or Rosenut real-wood veneer.
