Flexible, durable and great-sounding.
The easy-install bracket allows the AM-1 to be mounted vertically or horizontally, for total flexibility of installation.
Better bass, sealed tight
AM-1 needs a sealed enclosure to shrug off the rain and splashes, but that's not great for solid, powerful bass. So Bowers & Wilkins engineers designed this clever auxiliary bass radiator to give extra low-end punch from a compact enclosure.
Sound where you want it
We wanted to keep the AM-1 small, yet tough and flexible, so the combination of a slender wall-bracket, a clever one-plug mounting system and 220 degree rotation means we can deliver your music wherever you want it - indoors or out.
Brave the elements For those who want to bring impeccable Bowers & Wilkins sound quality to places where conventional speakers fear to tread, we've come up with the ideal solution: the AM-1 architectural monitor. This ultra-durable, weather resistant speaker is designed with the outdoors in mind - perfect for patios, gardens and poolsides - but its robust design and sleek looks also make it a great choice for public indoor spaces.
Use anywhere With its rust-proof aluminium grille and super-rigid cabinet, AM-1 is our most durable speaker ever. To make sure every AM-1 is highly resistant to the elements, each speaker must pass a range of rigorous weather tests, including UV exposure and testing inside an accelerated salt-spray chamber. Indoors or outdoors, at home or in a restaurant, it's guaranteed to perform whatever the weather.
ABR With AM-1, we've come up with an ingenious solution to the problem of producing powerful bass from a weatherproof speaker. Instead of the Flowport found in our traditional speakers, AM-1's cabinet integrates a rearmounted auxiliary bass radiator (ABR). As well as maintaining the cabinet's weather-tight seal, the ABR gives the AM-1 truly remarkable bass response for a speaker of its kind.
Technology AM-1 takes everything we know about high performance audio and adapts it to meet the demands of a versatile, all-weather monitor. The speaker combines tried and trusted technologies with new innovations - like an inverted driver array for optimum sound dispersion when the speaker is mounted high on a wall, and an advanced bass radiator design that maximises low-frequency performance while keeping the speaker sealed from the elements.
