A sleek, versatile satellite speaker
The Bowers & Wilkins M-1 is designed to serve just about any role in your home theater system. You can set up two for stereo music, add more to serve as surround speakers, and even mount one horizontally as a center channel speaker. The speaker's 4" woven glass fiber cone woofer and 1" metal dome tweeter deliver crisp, accurate sound for music, TV, and movies.
Part of the secret of the M-1's powerful sound is the clamshell enclosure. It's formed from two interlocking, continuously curving sections, so there are no joints or seams. That allows for carefully controlle airflow that reduces noise.
Of course, the speakers' drivers are something special, too. The tweeters are tube-loaded, borrowing an idea from Bowers & Wilkins' revolutionary Nautilus floor-standers.
The midbass/midrange driver also benefits from ideas developed in Bowers & Wilkins' distinguished speaker lineup. It features an Anti-Resonance plug that debuted with their PM1 loudspeaker. It's a mushroom-shaped device made of polymer foam that soaks up resonance and reduces cone break-up, creating unparalleled clarity and detail in the midrange.
Multiple mounting options
The M-1's built-in adjustable tabletop stand lets you mount the speaker vertically or horizontally, and angle the speaker toward your listening position. The included wall mount offers similar positioning options, and comes with a decorative bracket cover. The tabletop stand and wall brackets have built-in speaker terminals that let you route speaker wire internally for the cleanest possible look.
Bowers & Wilkins has created floor stands just for the M-1, to help reduce unwanted resonance and place them for optimal sound.
Get more bass
A pair of M-1 speakers has good bass response especially considering how small these speakers are. But to get the best possible performancee, we suggest using a subwoofer, especially for home theater applications. Bowers & Wilkins recommends the ASW608 powered subwoofer is as an ideal match.
