2-Way High Performance Outdoor And Weatherproof Speakers
High Power Handling; Extended Bass Capability
Includes Versatile Swivel Mounting Bracket
Designed In The USA
Mount the Proficient AW650 outdoor speakers in a corner or under your eaves with the included brackets. All-weather rugged ABS cabinets and rust-proof powder coated aluminium grilles will withstand the elements, ensuring years of top quality performance.
Great music doesn't have to stay inside your home. The Proficient AW650 outdoor speakers will ensure you are immersed in full, rich, balanced sound on your backyard deck or patio. The AW650 speakers don't necessarily need a super-high wattage amplifier or AV receiver to give you great coverage in open outdoor areas. However, the proviso is that you are not over-driving the amplifier and thereby producing distortion of any kind including the inaudible type. We recommend at least 2 x 80 Watts RMS output and upto 200 Watts per channel if you want to play them loud. The maximum input power is a healthy 150 Watts but a super-high quality amplifier around the 200 Watt mark will be required if you want to maximise the output. Sounds confusing? Well just think of the speedometer in your car. Just because it says 220kph doesn't mean it will go that fast...even on a racetrack! When it comes to power, play this conservatively and within the limits of each item and you'll have decades of happy listening.
For those who like to rock out but don't like big speakers, the 280mm-high AW650 is practically built to order. The AW650's 165mm woofer plays down to 37 Hz, which is even lower than the deepest note on a double bass! It’s tough, weatherproof ABS cabinet and high power handling assure years of reliable service.
Powerful Sound From A Small Speaker: This compact outdoor speaker delivers party-level sound even in large backyards. A tough, waterproof 165mm (6½") polypropylene woofer and ported cabinet give the AW650 much more powerful bass than most small speakers can muster. The pivoting 25mm (1") tweeter is made from Supernil synthetic fabric, which resists moisture and mould and also produces clear, detailed high frequencies.
A rugged ABS cabinet protects the AW650 against years of rain, snow and sun. The rustproof powder-coated aluminium grille protects the drivers from damage even if a stray football happens to hit the speaker. Each speaker comes with a swivelling mount, so you can mount it horizontally or vertically, then twist it in any direction.
The gold-plated binding posts will accept bare wire up to 12 AWG/79 Strand, spade connectors or banana plugs which are our recommendation.
The Proficient AW650 outdoor speakers produce full, rich sound that works perfectly in large open spaces. They work well at delivering audio over a good area without any reduction in quality. Even if you are wanting to party on a regular basis, you won’t hear the Proficient AW650’s complaining (no promises about the neighbours however) as long as you have the correct matching amplifier - see comments above regarding amplifier choice. Audio Trends has had decades of experience with outdoor speakers and a number of the staff have them installed in their own backyards. So we are not only enthusiastic about music outdoors but can speak authoritatively on the subject and make recommendations that will suit your needs.
