Definitive Technology DI 6.5R In-Wall Speakers – Pair

High performance is practically invisible with the Definitive Technology Disappearing™ Series. The sleek profile and vanishing in-wall mounting design allow the DI 6.5R to fill any room with immersive sound, not bulky speakers. The outstanding, nuanced audio detail is instantly conspicuous, while the speakers stay ingeniously out of sight.

Definitive Technology DI 6.5R Disappearing In-Wall series speakers feature near-invisibility thanks to their small diameters, hidden flange design, and low profile micro-perf grilles. They are as easy to install as traditional flanged flush-mount speakers, and don’t require custom sheetrock/spackle skills to install yet they are practically invisible. The DI 6.5R grille is a mere 8-5/16″ (21.04 cm)in diameter, about the same visible size as competitive 5-1/4″ in-ceiling speaker. With Definitive’s DI Series you get more sound per square inch of visible speaker.

  • Flangeless design, micro-perf grille and flush mounting allow a discreet 8.31″ total visible diameter
  • Deeper sound quality with precision BDSS drivers and a pivoting pure aluminum dome tweeter
  • Rigid PolyStone™ baskets eliminate unwanted vibrations to prevent ringing and minimize distortion
  • Axially Aligned design for broader sound dispersion and more natural balance

Balanced Double Surround System

Proprietary BDSS technology delivers the wide dynamic range and deep bass output of much larger drivers in a small-sized, high-efficiency mid/woofer.

Pure Aluminum Tweeter

The pivoting pure aluminum dome tweeter features a uniquely constructed housing, eliminating diffraction distortions typical with traditional speakers for spectacular audio performance.

Balanced Dispersion

BDSS technology, aim-ready tweeters and a specially-contoured AeroRing around the driver distributes natural, well-balanced sound everywhere in the room.

Adjustable Crossover

A sophisticated adjustable crossover network with custom, high-precision components produces superior sonic purity for crisp, clean sound. This is an amazing speaker.
