This is GREAT news for music lovers and home theater enthusiasts alike!

The CM10 floorstander is the flagship model in the CM Series. It features technologies seen for the first time in a CM Series product. These include a new double aluminium tweeter housed on top of the cabinet and a Kevlar® FST(tm) midrange driver decoupled from the main cabinet. The result is a loudspeaker that exceeds the already exceptional performance of its stablemates in every key regard.The CM10 floorstander is the flagship model in the CM Series.

The NEW Bowers & Wilkins CM-10 in Gloss Black

The CM10 is a fitting flagship for the highly regarded and very popular CM series. It sets a new standard for performance for the price and features a number of significant innovations borrowed from 800 Series, while also introducing an important new tweeter design.
Most obviously, the CM10 is the first model in the CM Series to feature the tweeter-on-top configuration, an iconic design aspect of our top performing models. The outboard tweeter housing is decoupled from the rest of the enclosure. Isolating the tweeter in this way aids imaging and dispersion, creating a more natural, spacious sound.

The tweeter dome contained within that distinctive housing is another first. CM10’s new tweeter is based in part on the research conducted on the carbon-braced tweeter employed in PM1. In the case of the CM10, the edge of the aluminum dome is strengthened using a second aluminum layer that replicates the main dome’s profile with the center part cut out, in essence a ‘double-dome’ design. This approach stiffens the whole structure and prevents the voice coil from going ‘out of round’ at higher frequencies. The result is the best performance yet from a CM Series loudspeaker: the double-dome pushes the first break-up frequency up from the standard dome’s 30kHz to an even more impressive 38kHz. This makes the tweeter purer and more piston-like in the all-important audible band below 20kHz. The result is exceptional clarity and control, even under duress. Importantly, this new tweeter design provides greater sensitivity than the carbon-braced approach (which necessarily adds mass) with very similar acoustic results. Maintaining high sensitivity was important to the overall high output/wide dynamic range goal for this model.

Moving the tweeter to the top of the cabinet has other advantages as well. The overall cabinet height of CM10 is the same as that of CM9, but by adding just a little depth to the enclosure and then relocating both the tweeter and FST midrange drive units creates sufficient extra volume for an additional bass driver unit. So, CM10 has 50 percent more bass driver area than CM9, with three drivers rather than two, yet doesn’t seem significantly larger overall.
It also gains in overall sensitivity, as bass alignment has been altered, allowing CM10 to be tuned lower. This gives it more extension, while the extra bass driver also helps reduce distortion, and enables a higher maximum output level.

Attention has also been paid to the all-important midrange area, and CM10’s Kevlar FST driver is, for the first time in the CM Series, decoupled from the rest of the cabinet. This performance-oriented solution not only reduces audible cabinet coloration, but also makes the listener less aware of the position of the loudspeaker itself.

The FST drive unit is secured in place by a drawbar mechanism, as found in 800 Series Diamond models. Moving the midrange driver closer to the top of the cabinet has similar results to placing the tweeter on top. It improves upward dispersion and increases the sense of airiness.
The cumulative effect of all these improvements is that, when compared to CM9, CM10 plays louder, has a more extended bass, better imaging and lower distortion and coloration. It is a crowning achievement for the CM Series, and pushes the range’s performance to new heights. In a word, it rocks!
CM10 comes in a range of finishes to suit any room. Choose between two real wood veneers, Rosenut or Wenge, or a painted black gloss finish.
