Designed to provide great sound wherever you need it, the Bowers & Wilkins Weatherproof Monitor AM-1 is the most durable loudspeaker Bowers & Wilkins has ever made.


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, the Bowers & Wilkins Weatherproof Monitor 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. The Bowers & Wilkins Weatherproof Monitor 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 the Bowers & Wilkins Weatherproof Monitor 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.

The Bowers & Wilkins Weatherproof Monitors AM-1 has been carefully designed to be easy to install and very flexible. Designed to be positioned in either landscape or portrait mode, the Bowers & Wilkins Weatherproof Monitor 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.


"The B&W AM-1 looks better than most outdoor speakers, has a versatile mounting system, and sounds very good." Audioholics
