This Bowers & Wilkins architectural monitor is designed to be used anywhere: it's perfect for use around the pool or mounted outdoors year-round, thanks to its weather resistance.
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 enclosures.
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.
