Floor-standing loudspeaker system
The CDM 9NT is the largest floorstander in the range producing generous bass
extension and delivering a tight midrange. The CDM 9NT incorporates the unique
surroundless midrange FST first pioneered in the 800 Series. Technological features
include Nautilus tweeter, braced cabinet construction, Flowport and mushroom dust cap
for improved bass throw.
The handcrafted cabinets in real wood finishes incorporate the best in design knowhow;
the styling and contouring is truly a triumph in the collaboration between science
Tweeter on top: B&W's Tweeter on top technology ensures that the sound
remains focused and time-sensitive and that the stereo-image is presented with
unparalleled three dimensional accuracy.
Kevlar®: B&W developed and patented the method of using Kevlar® for
loudspeaker cones to reduce unwanted standing waves. DuPont originally
created Kevlar® for use in bulletproof vests.
Flowport™: Golf ball aerodynamics theory points the way towards lower
distortion reflex ports. Dimples improve the way the air flows over the surface of
any object. In the case of reflex ports, they offer a significant improvement over
simply flaring the port ends in reducing air flow turbulence at each end of the
port; so you get less chuffing noise and less compression at high sound levels.
