Product Details

Definitive Technology White Outdoor Speakers, Model AW6500WH

Now you can enjoy the incomparable sound of Definitive Technology anywhere around your home with the groundbreaking new AW6500 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 great outdoors.

          Comments about Definitive Technology Outdoor Speaker:

          I installed these speakers in our backyard just before my daughter's graduation party. I got a lot of compliments on the music (even from my Father). The speakers are wondeful at low volume with plenty of low end. They sound extremely warm and fill up the yard - even though it's outside. I've installed a lot of different outdoor speakers. These are far superior to any others I've heard. I still like to listen to loud music - these do a great job of providing volume (feel) without causing neighbors to cringe. All of my past experiences with outdoor speakers resulted in having to crank the volume to get the sound. These hum along very nicely and satisfy without needing to over-amp. Perfect. I drive the speakers through an old ADCOM amp with an Apple Airport Express. Allows me to use I Phone or I Pad to access I Tunes and adjust volume. Very cost effective, great control, and dusted off my old gear for new use.

          Service and delivery comments:

          I waited four - five weeks for the speakers to be delivered. Almost canceled, but, could not find them anywhere else or for less. They are in demand because "they are that good". Everything else from Abt was as expected - everyone was helpful and professional.

            Comments about Definitive Technology White Outdoor Speaker:

            I bought these to replace my 2 year old Bose 251s and my only regret is not buying them sooner. I have them mounted on the side of my house under a covered deck and the sound reflects off the ceiling and easily fills my ½ acre backyard. While the Bose would occasionally sound weak, tinny and lacking bass, those are non-issue with the DT 6500s. I listen to Classic Vinyl, Jazz/Fusion, and Classical music and the sound is clear and rich regardless of the genre.

              Comments about Definitive Technology White Outdoor Speaker:

              Finding a good outdoor audio solution typically requires some level in compromise in design and performance. After hearing a couple other sets of speakers owned by friend / neighbor, I was somewhat underwhelmed and wondering if it would be worth bringing audio outside when a boombox is cheaper and about the same in quality. After some research and feedback from folks on the inside I took the plunge for the AW6500's and was pleasently surpised. Music from easy listening while the baking in the sun next to the pool or rocking out during a party (same music as inside!) creates a next level experience for my home.
              I wouldn't claim they match what you can get from indoor systems, but I can't see placing a couple of B&W's outside during a rainstorm. Design is a little bulky, but I'm guessing that is where all the performance including low end bass is coming from.

              Nice sounding speakers. Not as much bass as an indoor system,so be sure to manage your expectations. Getting good bass is tough outdoors, but I highly recommend. They are bigger than most outdoor speakers, so be sure you have the room to mount.
