The new line includes a three-way speaker with a pair of 7-inch low frequency drivers.

Bowers & Wilkins has announced a new line of in-wall and in-ceiling loudspeakers designed for those who want optimal sound without actually having speakers visible in their room.

There are a pair of two-way speakers launching , both of which offer up a one inch Carbon Based tweeter with Nautilus Tube, just like you find in their less subtle designs. They CCM 8.5 and CWM 8.5 sport a seven inch woven blue Kevlar cone driver that provides you with frequency response as low as 35Hz.

The largest of the line is the three-way, in-wall CWM 8.3. This loudspeaker gives you the same one inch tweeter, but switches up the Kevlar driver to a five inch for better mid response. Picking up the bass is a pair of seven inch carbon fiber Rohacell bass drivers. This gets you down to 30Hz. Bowers & Wilkins says that thanks to a rotating center baffle, you can install this either horizontally or vertically.

The new speaker line is due out by the end of this year.
