Britain’s B&W Loudspeakers has introduced a new, audio/video application loudspeaker, the VM6.

While the company’s VM1 speakers continue to be very successful, they felt a a need for an even higher performing product in this category. Enter the VM-6. The VM-6 is a two-way, ported, wall-mount or stand-mount design, which can be placed in either a vertical or horizontal position.

This allows for tidy cable routing, which keeps the installation clean and modern. The wall bracket also provides for some side-to-side swiveling to increase the available listening angles.

VM-6 incorporates a one-inch aluminum dome Nautilus tweeter with tapered-tube technology, and a five inch Kevlar cone bass/midrange driver that delivers solid bass down to 49Hz (-6dB). These driver elements are based on the same designs found in B&W’s CM-1, which won the coveted EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) award for speaker of the year 2006.

VM-6 speakers are available in black, pearl white, and silver finishes with complementary grill cloths of black (black finish), white (pearl white) and mid-grey (silver finish).

  • $450
  • Available this month
  • Can be wall- or stand-mounted
