Bowers & Wilkins AM-1 Outdoor Speakers - Great sound, whatever the weather

The Bowers & Wilkins AM-1 is a durable, weatherproof loudspeaker that delivers high-performance audio in an incredibly resilient and versatile package. Suitable for use outside and indoors, AM-1 is available in white or black finishes.

Articulate, exciting and powerful, B&W AM-1 avoids the compromises commonly associated with all-weather monitors, and delivers all the performance expected of a Bowers & Wilkins loudspeaker. The AM-1 is based on a two-way design and features an inverted drive unit configuration, with the AM-1’s 1inch (25mm) aluminium-dome tweeter mounted below rather than above a 5inch (130mm) glassfibre bass/midrange driver. This ensures optimal dispersion of sound when the speaker is mounted high on the wall.

The 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 B&W AM-1 has been carefully designed to be easy to install. Its elegant cast aluminium wall bracket incorporates an ingenious one-plug mounting system. Designed to be positioned in either landscape or portrait mode when mounting, extra flexibility is offered by AM-1’s ability to be rotated through 110 degrees from centre in both directions. Its minimal projection out from a wall also adds to its appeal. So, while AM-1 has obvious applications such as providing high-quality audio around gardens, patios and around swimming pools, its sleek design will also find favour indoors. Venues such as bars, restaurants and other communal areas will benefit from AM-1’s winning combination of premium sound quality, discreet styling, flexibility and durable construction.

B&W 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. It has also undergone rigorous, continuous testing in an accelerated salt-spray chamber, plus outdoor UV accelerated life tests to ensure its parts don’t fade or discolour.

Please note B&W AM-1's are priced and sold in stereo pairs.
