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 great outdoors. Now you can have it all — the great sound of Definitive indoor speakers on the patio, deck, garden, or in the sauna.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound from an outdoor speaker

Pros: -Sturdy, well made
-Sound quality is superb. Very clear music reproduction.
-Easy to install and position to maximize sound quality
-Super fast shipping
-Attractive speaker

Cons: -Speaker connection terminals are a bit close together, although using some sturdy banana plugs solved this minor problem.
-Some may find bass response lacking, however, for an outdoor speaker these produce decent low-end.

Other Thoughts: I installed two of these AW5500's under my eave over my backyard patio. Installation was a breeze. I used two drywall/wood anchors with screws for each speaker mount and they are not going anywhere. I used 14 gauge CL2 rated speaker wire. The sound quality is really nice, especially from an outdoor speaker. I will actually listen to new music outside on my patio now, rather than just having music as ambient background sound. I wired a subwoofer cable along with the speaker wire and use an old Yamaha 10 inch subwoofer to help boost the bass when I want some seriously good sounding tunes. Without the subwoofer, the low bass is a bit lacking for my taste. Still, most will find that these speakers faithfully reproduce a wide range of music. Buy these if you want quality sound for your outdoor space.
