Bowers and Wilkins WM2 Weatherproof Monitor Speakers

Excellent Condition -- slight blemish on front grill

Located in South Boulder

The Bowers & Wilkins WM2 is the smallest of the weatherproof WM range, offering high performance from a compact design.

Given that almost everything is more enjoyable when it's done outdoors (in the right weather), it's a sorry state of affairs when rooms and cars are the only places we can enjoy fine reproduction of great music. Music outdoors need not mean extension leads, overstretched boomboxes and overpowered eardrums. B&W, one of the world's leading innovators in loudspeaker technology, has created a range of compact, hard-wearing weather monitors (WMs) that bring B&W's characteristic clarity and depth of sound to gardens, terraces, balconies, or poolside.

The B&W WM2 benefits from the common WM features of a woven fibreglass cone bass/midrange, mounted in a stylish corrosion proof cabinet with self-draining 'J'-port that extends the bass response without allowing water into the cabinet. The system, with its 130mm (5 in) driver crossing over to an Ultra 12 tweeter for high frequencies, is ideally suited to humid indoor or outdoor applications.

The B&W WM2 weatherproof monitors are tough on the outside and tender on the music. All three B&W WM models feature technologies drawn from years of pioneering loudspeaker development. Bass/midrange cones are made from woven glass-fibre to minimise unwanted resonances. Tweeters are based on that of the revolutionary Nautilus™ loudspeaker for extended treble and a crisp stereo image across a surprisingly wide listening area. So hook up some WMs, take the remote control somewhere it's never been before, and experience your favourite sounds in the fresh air.

Choose from three WM models: The contemporary style of the Bowers & Wilkins WM 2 offers high performance from a compact design. Increased volume and bass performance is offered by the WM 6. Audiophile performance treble is offered by the Nautilus™ tube tweeter technology in the WM 4 and WM 6, while more flexible mountings are also provided on these models.

The B&W WM2 speakers will supply the sound-track to your summer, year after year - no matter how inharmonious the weather gets in between. The hard-wearing polypropylene housings - with their gel-like trim - offer a stylish, weatherproof shell for the audiophile-standard components within. Behind the grille, on each model, an angled port prevents rainwater from entering the unit, while the strong high-quality wall-mountings are designed to resist corrosion. All this water-resistance means WMs can provide the accompaniment to certain indoor pursuits, too. In bathrooms, indoor pools, even saunas, moisture just rolls off them while the sounds roll out.
