Definitive Technology AW6500 6.5″ All-Weather Loudspeaker – Black – Pair

  • 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.
  • Waveguide: 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.

Definitive Technology AW6500 6.5″ All-Weather Loudspeaker – Black – Pair

Rich, dynamic sound meets rugged all-weather construction in the Definitive Technology AW6500 outdoor speaker. It features some of the same advanced technologies as Definitive’s highly acclaimed indoor speakers, but it’s ready to stand up to the hardships of outdoor living. Buy a pair to place near the pool or on your deck — their non-resonant PolyStone enclosures are fully sealed and built for direct exposure to the elements. And the included bracket lets you rotate the speaker up to 360° for maximum flexibility.

Crystal-clear highs, distinct mids, and deep bass

Definitive pairs a 1″ pure aluminum dome tweeter with a 6-1/2″ woofer for accurate reproduction of the voices and instruments in your music. The woofer uses Definitive’s BDSS (Balanced Double Surround System) design for accurate response across a wide frequency range. A pressure-coupled, racetrack-shaped radiator reinforces the output of the woofer, for overall bass that’s equivalent to that of a 10″ woofer. (Pretty cool for an outdoor speaker that’s sized to fit under roof eaves.) You’ll get deep lows to round out the sound of your favorite tunes.

Pressure Coupled Radiator Design

The Definitive Technology AW6500 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. BDSS drivers incorporate the following design features.


The Definitive Technology AW6500 features a 6-1/2″ BDSS driver coupled to a 5-1/2″ x 10″ (racetrack) pressure-driven low-bass radiator, and a 1″ pure aluminum dome tweeter.

Break-In Period

The AW series outdoor loudspeakers will sound good right out of the box; however, an extended break-in period of 20-40 hours or more of playing is required to reach full performance capability. The break-in period allows the suspensions to work in and results in full bass, a more open midrange, and smoother high frequency reproduction.

Polystone Non-Resonant All-Weather Enclosure

The Definitive Technology AW6500 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.

Mounting Bracket

The AW6500 outdoor speaker features an integrated galvanized steel mounting bracket and unique enclosure shape which allow a full 360-degrees of rotation for maximum placement flexibility. The AW outdoor speaker, using the integrated mounting bracket, can be oriented horizontally or vertically. The mounting bracket allows you to mount the speaker to an outdoor wall or under the eve of your home. The integrated mounting bracket can also be used as horizontal stand, if you want to simply place the speaker on a table or shelf. The mounting bracket is also removable, if you one to place the outdoor speaker in a vertical position on a shelf or table.
