Bowers & Wilkins has just announced their latest PM1 Carbon Braced Tweeter that will deliver performance which will blow your mind (or should we say, ears?) away. The tweeter mechanism will be mounted on top of the PM1 in a similar manner as that of the 800 Series Diamond, relying on a Nautilus tapering tube. The high-quality aluminium dome has been strategically stiffened using a ring of filament-wound ultra-high modulus pitch-based carbon fibre to boot. The reason behind this is to raise the break-up frequency of the tweeter, adding another 40KHz thereabouts, dramatically affecting the audible frequencies below 20kHz. Apart from that, a new surround material has also improved the harmonic structure of instruments and voices, letting the listener pinpoint the position of the performer with greater accuracy than ever before.
All in all, the Bowers & Wilkins PM1 Carbon Braced Tweeter does seem to be the perfect product – at least, we believe, until a newer model or replacement comes along. This might however be the most refined small loudspeaker from Bowers & Wilkins to date. Expect the PM1 Carbon Braced Tweeter to arrive next month for £1995/$2800 per pair, while the PM1 dedicated stands will set you back by £400/$550 for each pair. [Press Release]
