Get to Know the Basics: The AM-1 Speaker

Bowers & Wilkins launched its mountable AM-1 speaker in March 2013, hailing it as being able to deliver the brand’s high-performance sound while avoiding the acoustic compromises most all-weather speakers have to make.

The AM-1 was designed for both indoor and outdoor applications, but it instantly proved capable of operating well in all-weather environments.
Its aluminum exterior, for example, is rust-proof. And the speaker cabinet, which is composed of glass-filled plastics, is resistant to dust, moisture and UV exposure.

But the speaker’s specifications also are just as impressive for outdoor application.

Its 25mm aluminum dome tweeter is located below the 5” bass/midrange glass-fiber driver instead of above it – so that when you mount the speaker, sound will disperse at a more optimal output.

And it features a rear-mounted Auxiliary Bass Radiator so that you can enjoy power bass response from even a sealed and weatherproof speaker.
The AM-1 also features 220-degree rotation, perfect for you to optimally angle the speaker.

How Can You Enjoy the AM-1?

The most significant benefit of the AM-1 speaker is its weather-resistant structure.

Not only can it handle the Arizona summer heat, but it also can safely endure through monsoons, dust storms and more.

That means you can enjoy true Bowers & Wilkins speaker quality outdoors; no matter the time of year.

You can mount one or several AM-1 speakers near your outdoor lounge area or your pool, and you’ll instantly listen to high-fidelity sound as you relax in the fresh weather.
