Our watertight design protects your speaker from the elements
5.5” woofer and bass radiator deliver deep, impactful audio throughout your outdoor spaces
Galvanized steel mounting brackets for flexible installations
The AW5500 combines high definition Aluminum Dome Tweeters that deliver clean, detailed treble, and a 5.5” BDSS™ woofer pressure-coupled with an 8” passive bass radiator that delivers clear, deep, impactful bass. You’ll enjoy expansive, full-precision sound, no matter where you are in the yard.
The same painstaking engineering and thoughtful material choices of Definitive Technology indoor speakers infuse the All-Weather Series.
The AW5500's 5 x 8" 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.
The cone's integrated waveguide smooths off-axis response for broad, even dispersion and better imaging throughout your space.
The AW5500 features a deeply drawn mineral-filled polymer cone, engineered using sophisticated 3D modeling techniques, for wide range performance.
With its higher frequency response, zero-latency video sync, and rock-solid performance, the AW5500 delivers reliability and sound quality far beyond wireless speakers.
Mount anywhere, hear everywhere: The integrated galvanized steel mounting brackets and unique enclosure shape enable full 360° rotation. Place your speakers just about anywhere while directing the audio to reach exactly where you want it. Add as few or as many as desired; they scale to any outdoor space. And the AW5500 comes with a class-leading 5-year warranty.
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.
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.
