Integrated Bass Radiators

The AW6500’s 5.5 x 10″ bass radiator, pressure coupled with the active BDSS mid/bass drivers, pumps out bass rivaling an 8″ woofer in less space. You can fill the outdoors with rich, full-frequency audio even at low volume.


Clean, Crisp Highs

The AW6500’s Aluminum Dome Tweeters feature ultralight, rigid construction that enables them to play significantly higher frequencies than we can hear, providing effortless, distortion-free performance within and beyond the audible range.


Accurate Midrange, Dynamic Bass

The AW6500’s 6.5″ woofers deliver deep audio throughout your outdoor space. Featuring the innovative Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS), the same driver technology found in our top indoor speakers, the AW6500 delivers output usually associated with a larger driver, while retaining a smaller driver’s improved dispersion and midrange definition for clear, impactful sound.


Integrated Waveguide for a smooth response

The cone’s integrated waveguide smooths off-axis response for broad, even dispersion and better imaging throughout your space. 


Mineral-filled Polymer Cone hear near and far  

The AW6500 features a deeply drawn mineral-filled polymer cone, engineered using sophisticated 3D modeling techniques, for wide range performance.


Wired For Fun

With its higher frequency response, zero-latency video sync, and rock-solid performance, the AW6500 delivers reliability and sound quality far beyond wireless speakers.


Ready to Play come rain or come shine

The All-Weather Series can withstand rain, snow, and temperature extremes that drive us mortals indoors. With Definitive Technology’s proprietary weather seal defending the subwoofers, tweeters, and passive radiators, it’s no wonder these loudspeakers boast a class-leading 5-Year Warranty.


Tough PolyStone™ Exterior for durability and longevity

Definitive Technology’s exclusive, rugged PolyStone™ enclosure can take all that nature can muster. The black finish is highly fade-resistant, and the white finish is both fade-resistant and paintable. For accurate outdoor audio, PolyStone enclosures, coupled with mesh aluminum grilles, provide an acoustically neutral, anti-resonant home for the tweeter, subwoofer, and passive radiator. They’ll last for many years, and never stop sounding great.
