Nice sound, good quality

Novaguy, Crutchfield
1 August 2015
  • Summary: Love the sound quality on these speakers, nice housing and hardware, very easy to adjust and install. Bass while very good not what I expected after reading other reviews but not shabby, overall they sound fantastic.
  • Pros: Nice clean sound, very spacious, no distortion with quality amp. Nice hardware, easy to mount and adjust.
  • Cons: Rather large, bass less than expected but without a sub to be expected. Price is up there but you get what you pay for.

Very good, but pricey

JimS, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I purchased four AW6500's to replace my aging Infinity Outrigger (large ones) speakers on my deck. As the Infinity's were still kicking after 10 years, they were getting a bit tired from being exposed to the elements 365 days a year (snow, rain, etc.).
  • Pros: Sound fantastic at loud volumes.
  • Cons: Pricey Lack of bass response at low volumes.

Descent

NY411, Crutchfield
4 April 2015
  • Summary: These speakers do not sound too bad. They have great highs and mids. They are very efficient so a smaller amp. will make them sound good,unlike what the sales adviser told me. (ie 50W x 50W or higher) They have pretty good bass, however push the bass hard and you will get pops, like the cone...
  • Pros: Good Mids. and Highs.
  • Cons: Woofer pops when bass is pushed hard.

Sound great, but the enclosure and bracket are eh...

Eric, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I bought these based on the many sales and good reviews that I had read about them. I'm doing an outdoor-backyard theater for an area that's about 25' x 25'. When I first pulled the speakers out of the box, I was a little skeptical.
  • Pros: Good clean sound
  • Cons: Cheap enclosure/bracket. Sweet spot listening to music.

  • Pros: Very easy to mount.

Great Sound - Likes Power

Uncle gadget, Crutchfield
22 April 2013
  • Summary: These are great speakers! Installed them around a swing pool deck and when I really put the power to them they respond with excellent sound and good full range for out door speakers. I would suspect that the base response would be even better if I hand them mounted against a wall or under a soffit.
  • Pros: Easy to use mounting brackets and solid sound performance across the board.
  • Cons: To really get them to fill out they do need a good bit of power. You are going to need a solid strong amp pushing these speakers if you are going to get the most out of them.

OK but nothing special

D. Trelford, Amazon
2 August 2012
  • Summary: I'm not as happy with the sound as a lot of others. I was used to Boston Voyager sound (similar price range) and these sounded boxy when compared to them. I was able to do a direct side by side comparison and they had a clearer sound with good tight bass where these sound almost muffled and boxy.
