Designed to provide great sound wherever you need it, the weather-proof AM-1 is the most durable loudspeaker Bowers & Wilkins has ever made.
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.
The ultra-durable, weather resistant AM-1 is designed with the outdoors in mind äóñ perfect for patios, gardens and poolsides äóñ but its robust design and sleek looks also make it a great choice for public indoor spaces such as restaurants and bars. Its also versatile: designed to be positioned horizontally or vertically, with an easy-to-install bracket.
With its rust-proof aluminium grille and super-rigid cabinet, AM-1 is B&Ws most durable speaker ever. Indoors or outdoors, at home or in a restaurant, it s guaranteed to perform beautifully whatever the weather.
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.
When used outdoors or in public spaces, speakers tend to be mounted above the listener. So our engineers turned traditional speaker design on its head with the AM-1. Its tweeter sits below the other drivers, angling the optimum listening axis äóñ the point where the units operate exactly in phase äóñ down by around 10 degrees. Perfectionism to give you pristine sound anywhere.
