Product Details

Definitive Technology White Outdoor Speakers, Model AW5500WH (Sold As Each)

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.
