    A great opportunity to grab the discontinued (and still sought after by dealers, they always complain to B&W as to why they discontinued them!) FPM series.

    This listing is for a pair of FPM5's with gloss black frame (rear chassis is silver) and the larger FPM6 that I used for the centre channel. Plus wall brackets.

    I recall paying around £2K when new for the three, note they are now out of warranty. The sale is for all 3, I will not split.

    A nice review giving more detail can be found at:

    Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) FPM On-wall Speakers Reviewed

    User manuals for specs can be found at the link below:

    Bowers & Wilkins - Product Archive

    A home demo is very welcome - they sound amazing!

    The condition of all 3 is very good, the logo badge is missing from the centre channel speaker grill, but I believe new grills are still available from Bowers if it bothered you. In fact, I just called them, and they are sending me a new one. Bowers is awesome for support!

    I no longer have the packaging, so would prefer collection, however, I am happy to discuss packing up safely and shipping for an additional fee.

    Any questions, let me know!

    Ouch, that hurt ;)

    If you do the research you will see that £500 is a steal for these. Ask any Bowers dealer they will tell you how good these are and how they wish Bowers kept them going. You would have to spend considerbly more to get anything better.

    BUt... Im feeling all festive, so the lowest is £400 plus delivery. BUY BUY before I change my mind :clap: :smashin: :facepalm:

    What a total pain, these look superb but I've just measured up and they would not fit in my set up. :(

    I hope you get a good sale.

    Would you still take £400 for these speakers?

    Cheers,
    Colin

    Hi Colin, I have now listed them on the bay at no reserve as I did not have success on here within the timeframe I had in mind. So they may even go for less, who knows :)

    Sorry was busy earlier today. So just to be clear does that mean you are no longer willing to sell them on here for £400 + postage? I guess they might sell for more on eBay but there will be fees on top.

    Thats offer has now passed, I plan to let the auction run as its unfair on those that have now bid.

    Ok fair enough. I'm think it's likely they'll go for a much higher price on eBay but I'll keep an eye on the auction just in case. Cheers, Colin.
