Bowers & Wilkins AM-1 Outdoor Speaker

$1,499.00

Brave the elements For those who want to bring impeccable Bowers & Wilkins sound quality to places where conventional speakers fear to tread, we’ve come up with the ideal solution: the AM-1 architectural monitor. This ultra-durable, weather resistant speaker is designed with the outdoors in mind – perfect for patios, gardens and poolsides – but its robust design and sleek looks also make it a great choice for public indoor spaces.

Technology AM-1 takes everything we know about high performance audio and adapts it to meet the demands of a versatile, all-weather monitor. The speaker combines tried and trusted technologies with new innovations – like an inverted driver array for optimum sound dispersion when the speaker is mounted high on a wall, and an advanced bass radiator design that maximises low-frequency performance while keeping the speaker sealed from the elements.

Behind the scenes Our senior development engineer Dr John Dibb explains how AM-1 overcomes the acoustic limitations of traditional all-weather speakers.

Description

The AM-1 Architectural Monitor offers a unique combination of high-quality sound and supreme flexibility. Articulate, exciting and powerful, AM-1 avoids the compromises commonly associated with versatile, all-weather monitors, and delivers all the performance expected of a Bowers & Wilkins loudspeaker.

A two-way design, the Bowers & Wilkins Weatherproof Monitor AM-1 features an inverted drive unit configuration, with a 25mm aluminium-dome tweeter mounted below rather than above a 5inch glass-fibre bass/midrange driver. This ensures optimal dispersion of sound when the speaker is mounted high on the wall. The Bowers & Wilkins Weatherproof Monitor AM-1’s low-frequency output is bolstered by the use of a rear-mounted auxiliary bass radiator (ABR). Used instead of a conventional bass reflex port, the ABR endows the Bowers & Wilkins Weatherproof Monitor AM-1 with exceptional bass response for a cabinet of its size. Unlike a port, it also provides AM-1’s cabinet with a continual seal against the elements. This combination of advanced drive units, unique configuration and classically simple crossover components combines to create a loudspeaker as musical as it is flexible.

The Bowers & Wilkins Weatherproof Monitors AM-1 has been carefully designed to be easy to install and very flexible. Designed to be positioned in either landscape or portrait mode, the Bowers & Wilkins Weatherproof Monitor AM-1 combines a rust-proof aluminium grille with a rigid cabinet composed of glass-filled plastics, ensuring class-leading resistance to extremes of dust, moisture and UV exposure. And while it has very obvious benefits outside, its discreet styling and impressive performance will also find favour for use internally.
