High Fidelity Sound on the Water with B&W
Famed for brilliant sound in your home, Bowers & Wilkins have now released their Marine range of speakers, specifically designed for the harsh marine environment.
The two models, Marine 8 and Marine 6, are said to be perfectly suited for either luxury yachts or near waterfront locations They feature an IP66 rating so are suitable for exposed positions where water (fresh and salt), dust, UV and other environment factors would preclude the use of ordinary speakers.
John Martin, Brand Manager for Convoy International told StereoNET:
Unlike most ‘marine’ audio speakers, the B&W models are capable of delivering the rich and lifelike ‘True Sound’ for which B&W is famous.
The secret to B&W’s superb sound quality is their specially adapted polypropylene driver and soft dome tweeter, partnered with a dedicated crossover. The combination delivers wide and smooth frequency response, with solid bass and lifelike upper frequencies, high power handling and easy amplifier matching.
Available in either round 8” (200mm) or 6” (150mm) sizes, Marine 8 and Marine 6 are designed to be built into walls, ceiling, bulkheads and other flat surfaces for a near-invisible flushmount finish.
The Marine range utilises non-corrosive rigid polymer chassis, marine grade stainless steel grilles and fittings, and sealed electronics in order to achieve the IP66 rating.
Bowers & Wilkins Marine 8 ($999 RRP) and Marine 6 ($799 RRP) are available now.
