B&W AM1 Weatherproof Monitors

The Bowers & Wilkins AM-1 architectural monitor brings impeccable sound quality to places where conventional speakers fear to tread. It's designed to sound stunning mounted anywhere: indoors or out, year round, in all conditions.  It's the most durable, versatile speaker we have ever made, with all of the audio performance you can expect from a Bowers & Wilkins loudspeaker. The ultra-durable, weather resistant AM-1 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 such as restaurants and bars. It's 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 our 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 – the point where the units operate exactly in phase – down by around 10 degrees. Perfectionism to give you pristine sound anywhere.

The AM-1's bracket is easy to install, thanks to an ingenious one-plug mounting system. It projects minimally from the wall, yet allows the speaker to rotate through 220 degrees, so you can angle the speakers optimally.

We've come up with an ingenious way to produce powerful bass from a sealed, weatherproof speaker. The rear-mounted ABR delivers truly remarkable bass response for a speaker of its kind.  The AM-1's bracket is easy to install, thanks to an ingenious one-plug mounting system. It projects minimally from the wall, yet allows the speaker to rotate through 220 degrees, so you can angle the speakers optimally.

Product Questions
What is the difference between active and passive speakers
Active speakers require a power supply which can come from the mains or a battery. Usually an input would come from an Aux chord or wirelessly from bluetooth or streaming. Passive speakers do not need a seperate power supply but would need amplification, usually via a traditional HiFi amp. Passive speakers are usually for HiFi and surround sound. Active speakers are usually for portable products or media speakers such as for a PC.
