Bowers & Wilkins AM-1 Weatherproof & Waterproof Speaker

The Bowers & Wilkins 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, 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.

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 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 AM-1 has been carefully designed to be easy to install and very flexible. Designed to be positioned in either landscape or portrait mode, 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.

Weatherproof

With its rust-proof aluminium grille and super-rigid cabinet, AM-1 is our most durable speaker ever. Indoors or outdoors, at home or in a restaurant, it’s guaranteed to perform beautifully whatever the weather.

UV Resistant

AM-1 has been subjected to rigorous environmental tests. These include ultraviolet (UV) exposure, to replicate long-term outdoor use, and testing inside an accelerated salt-spray chamber, to ensure it can brave the elements.

Auxiliary Bass Radiator

We’ve come up with an ingenious way to produce powerful bass from a sealed, weatherproof speaker. The rear-mounted ABR delivers truly remarkable bass response for a speaker of its kind.

220 Degree Rotation

The AM-1’s bracket is easy to install, thanks to an ingenious one-plug mounting system. It projects minimally from the wall, yet allows the speaker to rotate through 220 degrees, so you can angle the speakers optimally.
