Definitive Audio Performance

Elevated, Almost Invisible Sound

Bold and powerful, the DT6.5R features a 6.5” Woofer and 1” Pivoting Dome Tweeter in a round form factor engineered for in-ceiling audio excellence. Every component in the DT6.5R is conceived and developed in-house for a listening experience that delivers and a product that endures.

Low-Diffraction Swivel Tweeter
for high-performance
high frequencies

The DT6.5R features our low-diffraction swivel tweeter. Its specially-designed housing eliminates cross-driver interference with the midrange driver while improving dispersion and off-axis response. The swivel mechanism enables the installer to aim the tweeter for pinpoint direct audio or diffuse surround sound.

High-Performance Audio Components
in your walls and ceilings

Teeming with high-tech components such as annealed aluminum tweeters, polypropylene mineral-filled mid/bass cones, and anti-diffraction surfaces, the DT Series reproduces audio with the legendary voicing you've come to expect from Definitive Technology.

Pure Aluminum Swivel Tweeter

The ultralight, rigid construction of the DT6.5R's aluminum dome tweeter enables it to play significantly higher frequencies than we can hear, allowing for optimum linearity within the range of human hearing. The swivel mechanism lets installers orient the tweeter for precise direct sound or diffuse surround sound - or anything in between.

Quick and Easy Installs

Truly Custom Installations

Using only four common tools and a pencil, installers will find it a breeze to install the DT6.5R in-ceiling speaker. With strong yet lightweight construction, integrated pivoting lock arms, paintable grilles, and magnetic grille fasteners, you’ll have your DT6.5R speakers installed and playing sweet audio in no time.

Pivoting Tweeters
for customized sound

When using DT Series speakers as fronts in a home theater setup or as stereo speakers in a distributed audio system, installers can aim the tweeter toward the main listening position for improved imaging and detail. When using as rear/surround speakers, installers can aim the tweeter toward an adjacent wall or ceiling for a more diffuse sound field.

Fewer Tools Needed
for faster installs

Rotating lock arms, magnetically-attached grilles, and heavy-gauge speaker wire push terminals enable a faster, simpler installation using fewer tools.

Paintable Magnetic Grilles
for the custom touch

All DT Series speaker grilles and grille frames are paintable, with easy step-by-step instructions. Once you have your perfect look, powerful neodymium magnets attach the grilles to the speakers for a secure, tool-free finish.
