Definitive Technology AW 6500 All-Weather Speaker With Bracket

Legendary Definitive Performance-Outdoors!

Now you can enjoy the incomparable sound of Definitive Technology anywhere around your home with the groundbreaking 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. Now you can have it all  the great sound of Definitive indoor speakers on the patio, deck, garden, or in the sauna.

  • 6-1/2 inch active driver pressure coupled to a 5-1/2 x racetrack-shaped Planar Low Bass Radiator has total bass radiating area greater than a woofer to belt out powerful bass that fills outdoor areas with rich big speaker sound

Happy Happy:)
My set-up consists of a Pioneer Elite VSX-23, zone 2 powering (2 DT 6500's to my front patio (30' x 30'). My speaker placement is under the eves against the wall (bass radiator reflecting to the wall) and the speakers centered and projecting to my listening area. After some break-in, the speakers really shine at moderate volume's producing balanced, clean sound that's fills my listening space. The Hi's are crisp, Mid's are detailed and the Bass is strong. Crank up the power and at high volumes you can projected another 100 feet beyond. The speakers look and sound great and hide well under the eve's...

Lots of bass
Bought these speakers after a demo and liked the way they sounded. Got them home and mounted them on the back of the house. I live in southern ontario so I was concerned about leaving them out all winter. So I wrapped them up over this terrible winter, and just opened them back up today. Work like a charm. Looking foward to some +5 deg weather this weekend and getting some yard work done while listening to music again. Great bass and a really full sound.

Stop reading these reviews and just go buy a pair
You won't be disappointed. These speakers sound great with as little as 50 watts per channel but really shine when you can give them 100+. I have mine powered by an Emo XPA 5 with 200 watts per channel and they sound almost as good as my Dahlquist DQ-10s. Excellent bass for such a small speaker, great imaging and transparency. I have mine sitting on a stone retaining wall and the bass is awesome.

The only thing I can fault them on is they sound a little bright but you may be able to eq it out. Not that big of an issue though. The speakers are very accurate so you can definitely hear the difference that hi res audio files make (e.g. 24/96 or 24/192 files).

I left mine out in the rain exposed to the elements and they do fill up with water. Just shook it out and they were fine. Probably good to keep them protected or bring them inside during a big storm if you can.

They are also solidly built. All metal, no plastic.

Recently I was in the market for outdoor speakers and decided to give the AW6500 from Definitive Technology a go and boy I'm glad I did! For an all-weather speaker, the dynamic range and low frequency performance blows me away. I foresee many years of enjoyment of these speakers on my deck. Highly recommended.

Outstanding
Ok. I have had these outside speakers for a year. The 6500 series is great. I crank them out with my 55 watts Sonos Amp unit for a pair. Since the California dude had a bad experience about one of his going bad, I must say they are for outdoors--- but probably they should at least be covered from the major outside elements. If the dude's wasn't exposed to the elements that bad then I would look at the Geek Squad doing the wiring before I'd look at these speakers. In hindsight after reading all the comments maybe the fact that i'm only cranking out the limited 55 watts from the Sonos is making the difference of blowing the outside speakers even though their rated higher to 200 watts at 8 ohms. Trust me even with 55 watts from the Sonos Amp I have make sure i'm polite and not turning it too loud to disturb my neighbors with AC/DC Gone Fishin or Run DMC Walk this Way...LOL. I also have 5 UIW RCS II's in my ceiling of my living room. Unbelievable sound for football parties.

High Quality Product, Excellent Customer Support
I installed 7 of these speakers in my outdoor patio 3 years ago. They install easily, with lots of possible orientations. No maintenance, no cleaning, and they still sound great. Some of mine are exposed to the elements directly, some are not. The bass response is good, but will still sound best when complimented with an outdoor sub (JBL has some options). Someone (ok, it was me) threw a Nerf football and hit one of the speakers. The speaker grill was majorly dented, but the sound was not affected. I called DT customer support and they sent me a replacement grill free of charge. You can't beat that.

Amazing outdoor speakers
I mounted these in the ceiling facing down in an outdoor cabana that's 36' x 24'. The speakers are powered by a Denon Heos amp and they crank. The sound is amazing...you will not be disappointed!

I'm very pleased with the sound and the build quality. I discovered that I had to put a bead of putty between the wall and the mounting bracket for my installation. I have an eggshell texture on top of cinderblock and certain notes generated harmonics in the mounting bracket. this was an easy fix.

Great little speakers!
Bought these for my patio and liked them better then my small surround sound speakers so they never made it to the patio. So I mounted them in my living room, I got the white ones so that I can paint. The wife likes them because they blend in so well. Ended up getting a center and surrounds to go with an old pf1500 subwoofer and it sounds pretty good. I have had really good luck with deff tech. I bought my pf1500 in about 1995 or so and it still looks and works great.

Excellent sound and quality
Just hooked up a pair of AW6500 on my patio connected to a 65 watt Haffler amp and a Sonos connect. Sound quality is great with plenty of volume!
