    We just built our new home and wanting the best quality in cieling speakers that put out the best sound, I knew I had quite a few options laid out in front of me. I listened to countless speakers but these B&W's were by far the best sounding speakers I listened to in the Magnolia Room. Installation was unbelievably easy. Once I turned on the receiver and listened to the speakers, I was absolutely blown away as they sounded even better than the demo I was given. Then again, the folks at BB never really turned the volume up as loud as I wanted. The clarity at higher volume was just unreal. The amount of bass these speakers put out was surprising. But the clarity.... WOW! I almost went with another brand to save some $$ but my philosophy of "once and done" pushed me to spend the extra cash, get the best, and now there is never the feeling of "coulda, shoulda, woulda..." I truly believe in reading reviews before I buy anything...consumer reports, product reviews etc. and want to make sure I have as much info before taking that leap. I'm here to tell you right now, you will NOT be disappointed in these speakers. I have a full set up with the CM10 S2's in the living room, matching center channel, and these in ceiling speakers in both the living room and master bathroom. I'm sold on B&W's and once you hear them, you will be too. Love, love, love them!!!

    These speakers are amazing, I read lots of reviews and went to my local Magnolia/Best Buy and listed to them but they really have exceeded expectations. At the store it is hard to really get a sense of just how clear and accurate these speakers are with all the store noise and the salesmen always wanting to just BLAST whatever song they happen to like. But I listen to a lot off Jazz and Trap/Electronic and it is crystal clear, not a hint of any distortion, I am driving mine with the SONOS Connect:AMP which is plenty of power and sounds amazing. I installed them myself and the way they install and the design is bordering on Apple product good, very very easy to install. It is this attention to design and quality that makes these B&W stand out, these are worth every penny. I bought 3 other speakers to run a few trials and pick the best one, I got a set of Polks, Boston Acoustics, and Yamahas. It was not even close, these B&W are in a different class than any of those. They're way easier to install, they are much better made, heavier, better soldering joints, better materials, better frame, and the sound clearly benefits from this better design and build quality. I built a pair of 3/4" MDF speaker enclosures that fit in-between the ceiling joists and then I lag bolted them in position then we drywalled the boxes into the ceiling and installed the speakers after drywall/paining. I think having a sealed enclosure really helps these speakers, my boxes were about 14" x 10" x 16" in size. I plan on installing more using the same combination with the SONOS connect/AMP.

    After reading countless online reviews of online reviews, I was stuck between the less expensive Speaker Craft which fit my budget and the Bowers and Wilkins CCM664 which stretched my budget. I visited 3 different Best Buy stores before I found someone helpful and knowledgeable enough to spend the time with me and answer questions. Listened to the Speaker Craft first, which weren't bad, but a bit tinny. Once I listened to the B&W CCM664, I was impressed. and had decided Then against my better judgement, I decided to give the CCM 663s a listen which were $75 more each and would stretch my budget even more. I was blown away! Suddenly my budget was out the window and I walked out with a pair of CCM663s. Installation was a snap and took about 1 hour. The housing is installed and wired in the ceiling first then the speaker easily snaps in. The tweeters are aimable, so creating a large sweetspot is easy. And the grills are magnetically attached. Couldn't be happier!

    The wife and I purchased a townhouse which was pre-wired with in-wall fronts and in-ceiling rears. The place came with Definitive Audio 6" speakers all around. I fired up my Marantz SR7007 with the Definitive Audios and the response was solid, but I felt it just wasn't complete. After exhaustive research I opted for the B&W CCM663 and CWM663 combo. A quick install of the B&W's and power-up of the Marantz told me my research had paid off, I was smiling from ear-to-ear. These produce the sound I was after. Incredibly crisp for music and spot on for home theater. I run multichannel for music (which is about 60% of my listening) and the CCM663s really add that extra detail required to complete the experience. Incredible range, I just close my eyes and marvel at what I am listening to. Worth every penny. Even the wife commented that the system sounds incredible.

    You can never go wrong with B&W

    I just added these to complete the surround sound set-up in my house. I already had the B&W CM9 fronts and CM center. These match the tonal qualities nicely. It is not the ideal match for my other speakers, but there is nothing ideal about ceiling speakers anyhow. It is absolutely insane how clear and rich the sound is that come from B&W speakers. They are expensive, but I have not found anything that is noticeably better for the price range of any given B&W line. I wish I could afford their top of line products. If their mid-level stuff is this good, I could not imagine how their best stuff is. None of the speakers I mentioned will produce deep booming bass very well, but none of them are over 6.5" so what can you expect. Keep the low pass filters at around 90 to 110 and use a sub to fill in the low end and there will be no holes in the spectral response. B&W small to mid-size speakers have amazing mid and high responses. I can hear so many subtle sounds in some of my favorite movies and music that I never knew were there until I got this set-up.

    After extensive comparison shopping, we purchased the Bower speakers and have been absolutely delighted. Other candidates were Bose, Sonos and other "speciality" brands available through Home Entertainment contractors. Since we didnt want to drop $18,000 on a system we declined the specialty contractors bid. Sound quality remained our first priority and we preferred hardwired to a wireless product. The ratings for Bower is solid and the price point in our budget. Paramount to all is that the sound quality is awesome! Bonus we were even able to install the ceiling speakers ourselves. Wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

    I upgraded my basic Klipsh in ceiling speakers that came as part of my package when we built in 2014. I wanted more dynamic range and directional tweeters. The B&W with Kevlar and adjustable tweeters really made the difference! The sound is tight but robust. Firm and soft at the same time is another way of describing it. The vocals from their famous tweeters are incredible and the mid and bass is as good as you can expect from a 6” cone. Paired up with 700 watt Martin Logan 10” sub. Can’t go wrong with B&W

    I own the Bowers and Wilkens CM10 series and I have them powered by parasound amplifiers with a OPPO player. The very best sounding speakers. Crisp and very detailed. The center channel CM2 S2 is excellent. I purchased 4 of the inceiling speakers as I plan to mate them with either a Marantz AV8802 Atmos ready receiver or an Integra. The speakers are great with clear and full sound. I decided to go this route in hopes of keeping the sound a bit more focused and directional as it comes from above.

    I was looking to buy some wall mount speakers for a new house. I asked to listen to them in the Magnolia sound room and they sounded pretty good. Well, then I head the B&W 664s and 663s. HUGE difference even between those two models. Needless to say I shelled out the additional dollars and I am happy with the decision. These speakers are awesome and love that they are flush mounted to the ceiling instead of protruding from walls and ceiling.

    I did a lot of research and had a budget for my in ceiling speaker system. I went to multiple magnolia Best Buy stores but Erik from Huntington Station store sold me the moment he put the B&W CCM663 on. I told him I wanted the B&W664 and wanted to hear them they sounded great but he than told me if I could hear the difference from 664 to 663. That's when I was sold on the 663 unbelievable sound quality. Watched the movie 13 hours and I thought I was in the battle in Benghazi. Thanks Erik.

    I have dolby atmos installed in my house and was using some cheap ceiling speakers to create sound for atmos. I could tell that the cheap speakers sounded different than my CM9 and other B&W speakers but thought its only for surround sound so why bother upgrading. But over time the sound emitted from the cheap ceiling speakers really bothered me so I pulled the trigger on these and I am so glad I did. Now my system matches sonically and that is music to my ears.

    Somethings in life you can be cheap on, not this. Your money is well used when purchasing a BW speaker system. I got the inceling speakers with marantz receiver and the clarity, quality, and dept of sound is amazing. I am blown away. Other brands like Bose or Fender or the cheap amazon brands got nothing on BW Speakers. Just perfection!

    I was trying to find speakers to upgrade to Atmos - I didn't like the idea of upward firing speakers "bouncing" sound off the ceiling - direct sound has always appealed more. All my existing speakers are B&W so I started my search there. These were quite easy to install - I like the sliding retainers that hold them into the ceiling. The sound is very good - better than I thought possible for the money. Now I need more Atmos Movies.

    I placed a pair of these in my living room cathedral ceiling (I built insulated backing boxes for them). They sound fantastic! It is hard to believe that what you are hearing are just 2 ceiling speakers. If you need a pair of quality ceiling speakers for either stand alone stereo or in a surround sound system, these would be hard to beat.

    I bought these as my ceiling speakers for my Atmos setup, and I love them. The install is easy, I had the ceiling pre-wired during construction. Sounds fantastic paired with an Integra AVR. These match perfectly with my B & W CWM 663's. They typically do not go on sale, but since I was buying 4 of them, the Magnolia sales person gave me a little discount which was awesome.

    I purchased 5 B&W in ceiling speakers for my home theatre room, and I must say that they are worth every dime! I have watched movies, listened to tv and music and heard things/imperfections that I have never heard before. If you are looking for some quality in ceiling speakers, these will not disappoint.

    So glad I went with these speakers! I purchased B&W tower speakers for my sound system in a different room and love the sound reproduction, so when it came time to decide on in-ceiling speakers in my great room, choice was easy. Thanks, Best Buy, for working with us on this purchase!

    These speakers are fantastic. I was even impressed with the packaging. The mounting system is awesome. Every aspect of the speaker screams quality, but the sound is what counts. These really deliver. The speakers sound so full. They have great detail and clarity. I can't recommend these enough. Worth every penny.

    These speakers were awesome in the store and sounded great at the house, but the housing that was already installed for this was too big and too shallow The speaker diameter was too small and the depth too tall). So, these are probably best installed in a newly carved hole in the wall or ceiling.
