True floorstander performance from a seriously slim speaker. CM8 S2 will slip into any room, yet delivers power and precision from three Kevlar drivers and a Decoupled Double Dome tweeter.
With a cabinet just 165mm wide, CM8 S2 will fit in any room. And thanks to concealed fixings and a minimalist, magnetic and protective tweeter grille, CM8 S2 combines subtle stylish looks with modern, practical design.
Key to its slim profile is the use of two 130mm Kevlar bass drive units combined with a 130mm Kevlar FST midrange. The FST driver uses "surroundless" suspension to improve crossover with the tweeter, give a faster response and improve accuracy through the midrange.
Of course, CM8 S2 isn't designed solely to deliver power in a smaller form factor. With an FST midrange and Decoupled Double Dome Tweeter for increased rigidity and isolation from the cabinet, CM8 S2 is also designed for precise audio response.
