A typical CT800 installation will feature two or more vertical surround sound speakers at the rear and sides to generate an authentically three-dimensional listening experience. To maximise the 3D effect, the CT8 DS incorporates additional side-firing midrange drivers for the option of dipole operation.
Sound with backbone demands a speaker with backbone. In a system with as much power as this, the physical forces exerted on the cabinet by the air movements inside it are huge. To hold the cabinet walls in place and avoid the kind of vibrations and flexures that can taint the sound, each speaker contains B&W’s double thickness Matrix™ internal bracing system of interlocking anechoic cells. This indomitable skeleton – like that of a building – dissipates forces around the structure and creates a single rock solid unit.
