Definitive Technology AW 6500 Outdoor Speakers
Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
31 October 2012
Summary: I enjoyed every minute of my time with the Definitive Technology AW 6500's. They were a breeze to install; their sound was balanced transparent, emotive and clean. I actually decided that they would be my new outdoor speakers within the first week. But then I took them inside for bench testing and all I could do was exclaim, "Zooey Mama!" the way Greg from "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" might say.
Excerpt: Ahh, Spring. When a young audiophile's mind turns to great weather, BBQs and lazing away the day in a hammock. And, of course, no day in the sun is complete without your favorite music playlist cranking away in the background. Now, I've spent the greater part of my life in Manhattan apartments, which means outdoor space was as rare as a taxi at rush hour... in the rain.
Pros: Great sound, Reasonable price, Did I mention they're all weather ?
Cons: Requires a powered amp, Installation is very DIY... a template would have been helpful., Aesthetically may not work for everyone, though the white version is paintable
