Diablo, CA home gets a BIG re-do!

This is the story of a lovely home in Diablo, CA we have been working on for a while.  We have replaced the home infrastructure and networking equipment to insure a stable platform for Control4 as well as the newly designed security and surveillance systems.  We have added distributed audio and video (both B&W and Paradigm speakers and subs, Sony and Yamaha electronics)through the home as well as a theater.  This has been an extensive remodel and we are nearing completion. Left to do are an out door TV system with dedicated audio and landscape audio.

More pictures in a couple of weeks!

Bowers & Wilkins engineers at Steyning Research Establishment continue to apply their proven expertise across all loudspeaker categories. Now the Bowers & Wilkins two new game-changing models for the marine / outdoor sound market.

Marine 6 and Marine 8

For some time now, yacht builders have had to accept the status quo in marine application speakers with a compromise for reliability in place of higher performance. This is certainly no longer the case with the introduction of Bowers & Wilkins new Marine 6 and Marine 8. B&W has developed two flush mount loudspeakers that fully comply with the extremely rigid marine IP66 regulations, while living up to the acoustic performance and industrial design standards expected of all Bowers & Wilkins products.

Performance

The Marine 6 and Marine 8 speakers feature metal salt-resistant grilles and all screws are marine-grade stainless steel. The driver chassis’ uses a non-corroding rigid polymer and the tweeter dome has a rear support to prevent permanent deformation when using pressured fresh water to wash off salt accumulations. The speaker systems are fully encased to protect electric components and all surfaces from corrosion. As denoted by their model numbers, the speakers’ bass/midrange driver dimensions are 6″ and 8″ with both featuring 1″ soft dome tweeters.

The result of Bowers & Wilkins intensive investigation and engineering execution is that the designs are extremely rugged and perform with a higher level of acoustic performance than is typically found in marine application speakers. B&W’s Marine 6 and Marine 8 models are ideal for use on fresh and salt water vessels, but equally applicable for outdoor use in residential applications, even those situated in challenging seaside locations.

Marine 6 – $325 each, sold in pairs
Marine 8 – $425 each, sold in pairs

Available from early September.
