Product Description

Definitive Technology AW5500 All-Weather Speakers White – Pair

The Definitive Technology AW5500 Is Priced And Sold As A Pair

Now you can enjoy the incomparable sound anywhere around your home with the groundbreaking Definitive Technology 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.


Pressure Coupled Radiator Design

The AW series outdoor speaker provides clear, high-definition sound by pressure-coupling a BDSS technology driver to a racetrack-shaped mid/bass radiator cleverly placed on the opposite side of the enclosure. This technique offers a total bass radiating area greater than an 8-inch woofer to belt out powerful bass that fills outdoor areas.

BDSS Technology

Definitive Technology’s Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) driver offers a wide-bandwidth accurate frequency response, broad dispersion, low distortion, and detail retrieval; so you hear more the music with greater accuracy and enjoyment

Polystone Non-Resonant All-Weather Enclosure

The Definitive Technology AW5500 features a fully sealed (air and water tight) design, aluminum grilles, and rugged PolyStone enclosure, which allow it to be fully exposed to the elements and still reliably deliver their indoor speaker sound quality for years of outdoor listening enjoyment.

Balanced Double Surrounds

The speaker’s balanced double surrounds support the cone at two points to provide better mechanical stability for longer, more linear excursion, and improved damping to suppress parasitic cone resonance.

Mineral-Filled Polymer Cone

The speaker features a deeply drawn mineral-filled polymer cone engineered using sophisticated 3D modeling techniques for wide range performance.


The cone’s integrated waveguide smoothes off-axis response for broad, even dispersion and better imaging.

High Temperature Voice Coil

The driver’s high temperature, oversized, lightweight vented voice coil offers improved power handling and quick transient response. The voice coil is also lengthened to increase linearity and lower distortion.

Magnet Structure

The driver’s magnetic system is optimized by finite element analysis to maximize magnetic flux in the gap for high efficiency and linear excursion.

Die-Cast Alloy Basket

The die-cast alloy basket minimizes ringing and vibration while the open area minimizes back wave reflection.
