Product Details

Definitive Technology White Outdoor Speakers, Model AW5500WH

Now you can enjoy the incomparable sound of Definitive Technology anywhere around your home with the groundbreaking AW5500 All-Weather loudspeakers.

These technology-packed wonders feature high excursion active drivers pressure-coupled to racetrack-shaped Low-Bass Radiators to give you more than double the bass output while maintaining a weather-tight seal for ultimate placement flexibility, reliability, and performance.

With their fully sealed design, aluminum grilles, and rugged PolyStone enclosures, the AWs can be fully exposed to the elements and still reliably deliver their indoor speaker sound quality for years of outdoor listening enjoyment. Their integrated galvanized steel brackets and unique shape allow a full 360 degrees of rotation allowing the listener to orient the active drivers toward the listening area. Pointing the active driver baffle towards the listener while the Low-Bass Radiator side faces the wall or ground gives you the ideal balance of clear mids, extended highs, and thunderous bass even in the tough acoustic conditions of the outdoors.

The AW5500 features a 5-1/4" active driver pressure-coupled to a 5" x 8" Low-Bass Radiator for a total bass radiating area greater than that of an 8" conventional woofer, while the AW6500’s 61/2" driver and 5-1/2" x 10" Low-Bass Radiator exceeds the radiating area of a 10" woofer — imagine all that bass from speakers small enough to unobtrusively place anywhere. Both AW models use Definitive’s trademark Pure Aluminum dome tweeter for unexcelled high frequency extension and detail. Now you can have it all — the great sound of Definitive indoor speakers on the patio, deck, garden, or in the sauna.

            Comments about Definitive Technology Outdoor Speaker:

            Installed a pair of these under my deck by the swimming pool 3 years ago. These are a bit pricey but for the sound quality you can't beat these Def Tech's. Wether listening to music or the game by the pool or relaxing on the patio these speakers sound GREAT. These sound amazing at low or cranked up. If your thinking about it pick up a pair or more and enjoy the sound these put out, just make sure to get thicker speaker wire as I did for long runs, so you dont lose any treble or bass as you will over 25 ft or more, trust me it will pay off!
