Bowers and Wilkins DM14


The B&W DM14 is a closed box type loudspeaker system of 28 litres internal volume, designed for use either as a professional monitor or as part of a high quality domestic sound system.

It follows the same styling and design concepts as B&Ws smaller DM12 monitor but its greater volume and additional low frequency driver yield the benefits of increased efficiency, increased maximum acoustic output power, and an extension of low frequency response.


Type: 2 way, 3 driver loudspeaker system

Frequency Response: 80Hz to 20kHz

Impedance: 8Ω

Sensitivity: 86dB

Bass: 2 x 150mm bextrene cone

Tweeter: 1 x TW26 26mm polyester

Enclosure: 28 litre, closed box

Finish: black ash, rosewood, teak or walnut

Dimensions: 567 x 256 x 295mm

I paid $120 off a Craigslist seller for a pair of these DM14's. I've owned many pairs of under $1K speakers: Kef, Wharfedale, Paradigm, MartinLogan, Energy, and the great Pioneer budget speakers made by Andrew Jones of TAD. These speakers are an eye opening experience. The make is solid. The audio they kick out is exceptional. They sound the best when running a well mastered SACD. The lone DVD-A I have is Beck's Sea Change and it's the best I've heard through all the budget speakers I've owned.



re: DM14

Does anyone know if the tweeters (TW26 afaik) have magnetic oil/ferrofluid in them?


re: DM14

The DM14 tweeters are Ferrofluid cooled while those in the later and cheaper DM1400 are not. You may wish to Google "the difference between the DM14 and the DM1400".

re: DM14

As far as remember, they did not.
