Product Description

Better in-ceiling speakers like the B&W CCM382 serve very different needs than traditional, freestanding speakers. The CCM382's will serve customers who want very good quality for either multi-room or rear surround sound speakers but at the same time don't require super high-end performance.

Overview

Hide the hardware and reveal the true quality of the music. From two-channel hi-fi to multi-room audio and home theatre B&W Custom Installation speakers are capable of delivering sound that is, quite simply, out of sight. Each model in the Series is designed to be installed neatly into wall or ceiling, fitting virtually flush to the surface. The only visible evidence of each speaker is its slimline grille and frame, which can be painted to blend perfectly with your interior style, or even covered with co-ordinating fabric.

So forget cabinets, forget cables and focus all your attention on the pure aesthetics of your living or work space. While B&W Custom Installation speakers are made to disappear from view, they produce a sound that’s anything but shy and retiring. Harnessing the same Bowers & Wilkins technologies found in recording studios around the world, the speakers will fill a room with stunningly lifelike, three-dimensional sound. The result is a series that’s near invisible to the eye. But infinitely pleasing to the ear.

A Closer Look

The B&W CCM382 is a two-way in-ceiling loudspeaker, balanced for wide-angle listening. It comes with a choice of round or square baffles, and like all the models in the CI 300 Series it features an elegant minimal-width border design. It features a 203mm (8") Polypropylene cone bass/midrange driver, and a 25mm (1") soft dome tweeter. All the models in the CI 300 Series are capable of offering great sound in high-humidity environments such as indoor swimming pools.

Research - Building Projects

If you are reading this material as part of research of a new building product, then you may be surprised to know that on average in the USA, 65% of all new homes built have multi-room sound in some description specified as a standard feature. Although we don't have the exact figures for Australia, we're fairly confident that it will be the same or even more. Australian's love new technology.

But sadly, the big home builders have looked at this as a simply a profit opportunity and unless you organise otherwise will install what are known as "contractor series" speakers. If you guessed that these were bottom of the pile quality, you'd be right! A wrong decision here means you are stuck with bad sound and until the day you move or have them replaced.

Tip: Due to a simple lack of knowledge, many consumers think that In-Ceiling Speakers are a cheap option/alternative to other types of speakers. However, good quality In-Ceiling Speakers need some serious engineering to work well in your ceiling where dust and extremes of temperature take their toll. Some models have 'boxes' that you can buy as an optional extra which protect not just from the elements but are also meet one-hour fire-proof specifications.

Buyer Beware: There are dozens if not hundreds of In-Wall and In-Ceiling brands on the market. In fact, if you order enough, the Asian manufacturers will put any name you like on them! Don't laugh, because it is actually happening and boy are they cheap...but also nasty - real nasty!

The good news is that you can now buy In-Ceiling Speakers that actually deliver very good sound and UK brand B&W is living proof - everything they put their name to is designed in house including their In-Wall and In-Ceiling products which although mostly unseen could be referred to as "buried treasures."

Our Take

For those of us that have not only a need for In-Ceiling speakers, but a desire for something that has been designed to sound good, Bowers & Wilkins is a company you can trust. Looking at the improvements they've made in the different lines over the decades we have sold the brand, shows clearly that they are thinking about the specific use of the speaker in the home environment and even in the future. The products are also compliant with the latest international enviromental standards for end-of-life disposal.

You'll enjoy superior In-Ceiling performance at a modest price with any of the Bowers & Wilkins CM Series custom speaker range. The CCM382's are suitable for rear surround speakers as well as in multi-room Stereo music systems where you want something better than just "also ran" performance but still want to keep a reign on the budget!
