Product Shot 1 The Pros:Beautiful. Available in gloss black, rosewood and wenge. Magnetically attached grills (looks better).

The Cons:Expensive. Requires high end sources, amplification and a subwoofer for full effect.

The B&W CM9 is a 3-way floorstanding speaker from B&W's CM Series that can handle up to 200 watts of power.  The speaker features a 1" Nautilus tube loaded aluminum dome tweeter, 6" woven Kevlar cone FST midrange, and dual 6.5" paper Kevlar cone bass drivers to provide a frequency response of 56Hz - 22kHz.

  It is designed with high quality components and includes B&W's Flowport technology which minimizes turbulence to produce crisp sound.  The CM9 is larger and more powerful than B&W's CM7 floorstanding speaker due to the presence of an additional woofer driver.  The speaker is available in real wood veneer finishes of Wenge or Rosenut and also in a glossy black painted finish to match household decor.  It comes with a black cloth grille that attaches magnetically for a clean look and has a price tag of $1500 each.

Anonymous: #b_w_cm9 It's disappointing to see that B&W has these made in China, although the 802 Diamonds that I want are made in the U.K. but cost $15,000 a pair. Jul 2, 11
