WEATHER-PROOF AM-1 DESIGNED TO PROVIDE GREAT SOUND WHEREVER YOU NEED IT.

Easy to install with an elegant cast aluminium wall bracket incorporating an ingenious one-plug mounting system. Combined with minimal wall projection and a design that allows the speaker to be angled through 220º with B&Ws renowned sound quality and you have our most recommended architectural speaker.

Great Sound Anywhere

On the patio, by the pool or flooding the garden with music, the Bowers and WIlkins AM-1 takes your tunes to the great outdoors.


In its element

With an easy-install bracket and that all-important weather resistance, the AM-1 delivers excellent quality, great music wherever you want it.


Sound anywhere

Flexible, durable and great-sounding.
The easy-install bracket allows the AM-1 to be mounted veritcally or horizontally, for total flexibility of installation.


Better bass, sealed tight

The B&W 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 enclosures.


Sound where you want it

B&W 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.

More Details

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.

A two-way design, AM-1 features an inverted drive unit configuration, with a 25mm aluminium-dome tweeter mounted below rather than above a 5inch glass-fibre bass/midrange driver. This ensures optimal dispersion of sound when the speaker is mounted high on the wall. AM-1's low-frequency output is bolstered by the use of a rear-mounted auxiliary bass radiator (ABR). Used instead of a conventional bass reflex port, the ABR endows AM-1 with exceptional bass response for a cabinet of its size. Unlike a port, it also provides AM-1's cabinet with a continual seal against the elements. This combination of advanced drive units, unique configuration and classically simple crossover components combines to create a loudspeaker as musical as it is flexible.

AM-1 has been carefully designed to be easy to install and very flexible. Designed to be positioned in either landscape or portrait mode, AM-1 combines a rust-proof aluminium grille with a rigid cabinet composed of glass-filled plastics, ensuring class-leading resistance to extremes of dust, moisture and UV exposure. And while it has very obvious benefits outside, its discreet styling and impressive performance will also find favour for use internally.
