The Bowers and Wilkins AM-1 Outdoor Speakers
The new B&W AM1 Architectural Monitor offers a unique combination of high-quality sound and supreme flexibility. Suitable for installation in a wide range of outdoor and indoor applications, it’s the most durable loudspeaker Bowers & Wilkins has ever made, capable of withstanding all weather types, as well as steam.
The sound quality that the AM-1 is capable of greatly reflects the sophistication and quality of its design. The midrange/bass driver is 5 inches in size and is constructed from a glass-fibre. This driver is supported by an innovative bass enhancing technology called ABR, which stands for Auxiliary Bass Radiator. The ABR is used in place of a bass reflect port, allowing the AM-1 to deliver great depths of bass sound while retaining a level of control not normally found with a speaker of its stature. Unlike a bass port, the ABR also provides a weatherproof seal for the AM-1's cabinet.
The 25mm aluminium dome tweeter is mounted beneath the mid/bass driver, ensuring the best possible sound dispersion and in turn, resulting in a superior stereo-field when mounted high up on a wall. These drivers sit beneath a rust-proof aluminium grille, attached to a rigid cabinet composed of glass-filled plastics. This ensures an unrivalled resistance to the elements, whether they be extreme amounts of dust, moisture or UV.
Rigorous and unrelenting tests and assessments in an accelerated salt-spray chamber and outdoor UV exposure proves that the AM-1's parts and pieces don't fade or discolour.
The AM-1 can be positioned in either a landscape or portrait mode and includes a cast aluminium wall bracket with a one-plug mounting system. Speaker cables don't link directly to the AM-1, but rather to this bracket instead for a stronger and safe signal connection and an easier installation process.
Who are Bowers and Wilkins?
Bowers & Wilkins are a company who needs a very little introduction, having been constructing some of the world's most critically acclaimed loudspeaker and headphone models for half of a decade. Starting at the entry level 600 S2series, through to the new 700 S2 series audiophile range, 800 Diamond series and flagship Nautilus model. These different series of loudspeaker have been praised as the superior listening experience in both two-channel hifi/music listening and in multi-channel home theatre applications, having claimed a vast multitude of awards in both categories. A Bowers speaker can be easily recognised by their iconic styling and their new silver 'continuum' cone, present throughout the 600, 700, 800 & Formation ranges. In April 2019 Bowers and Wilkins introduced their newest "wireless" range called "Formation", giving you a true, high-quality music experience when it comes to streaming music wirelessly.
