In-ceiling speakers, designed to squeeze into small spaces or be used in multiples for diffuse, background sound, are really difficult to get right. If the driver’s too small, there won’t be enough bass without adding a bulky subwoofer, but the common alternative is a 2-way where the tweeter sits in front of a small bass/midrange driver. The problem with these is the driver fires around the tweeter’s body, inevitably leading to colouration. The new Bowers & Wilkins CCM632 is a single 75mm (3in) full-range driver with a beautifully well-balanced sound, that sidesteps traditional small speaker issues yet still takes up less than 150mm (6in) diameter space installed. The CCM632 also features Bowers & Wilkins new and innovative ZipDogs™ fixing method. These make short work of installation and cope with almost any thickness of mounting panel. Each speaker comes with an integral enclosure to minimise acoustic bleed into adjoining spaces. Speakers are supplied in pairs, with each pack including round and square magnetically fixed, and fully customisable, grille/bezel assemblies.
