Bowers & Wilkins CT8 LR


Bowers & Wilkins CT8 LR

is uncompromising 3 ways loudspeaker, designer to sit on the left and right of your cinema

The CT8 LR features a spherical midrange/tweeter head that can be tilted towards the listener to retain a focused delivery, plus twin 10” bass units, as in the surround speaker.

For the Custom Theatre range we have taken our development of the Nautilus™-derived tube loaded tweeter a stage further. Following the same principle as our adaptation of the midrange tube (see opposite), we’ve replaced the single, long tube with a whirl of tightly-packed, smaller channels contained in a shallow cup, each of which absorbs a portion of the unwanted sound energy from the back of the diaphragm. Even at frequencies well beyond human hearing, this tweeter sings like a bird.


Pure performance, without compromise
CT800 combines reference-quality power, clarity and control with speakers that can be custom-fitted into a theatre room. Experience everything from the roar of a jet engine to the creak of a staircase in extraordinarily life-like detail.
