Great music doesn't have to stay inside the house the Klipsch® AW-400 outdoor speakers bathe your deck, patio, or porch in accurate, detailed sound. These speakers don't need a huge amplifier to give you great coverage in open outdoor areas. That's because they feature a high sensitivity rating, which measures how loud a speaker plays with a given amount of power.
Rugged, all-weather design
Mount these speakers in a corner or under roof eaves with the included brackets. All-weather enclosures and rust-proof aluminum grilles stand up to the elements, ensuring years of worry-free performance.
Horn technology for powerful performance
Because high-frequency sounds are more directional than bass frequencies, it's especially important to target them right toward your ears. Klipsch places their tweeter inside a flared opening, known as a "horn," which disperses the highs evenly across your listening area. This design brings out details in everything you listen to, while reducing reflections that can color the sound. The horn also improves dynamics and efficiency, for powerful, "front row" sound that remains crystal-clear at all volume levels.

We also have some "rock" speakers that blend seamlessly into your landscaped lawn or garden.
Klipsch AW-400 Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
In addition to the AW-525 model I have already had for three years underneath the deck for the backyard, I wanted a smaller sized speaker on the upstairs deck to match the same superior quality, but in a smaller size. The compact size and durability of these speakers are amazing, not to mention the quality - both in sound and construction. Using my AW-525 for the past three years and leaving them out in the harsh Minnesota winters have proven no problem in producing their great sound year after year. After listening to the quality of other speakers, the Klipsch brand produced cleaner and crisper sounds with more full-bodied bass and no muddy sound. They work great at delivering audio over a large range without any reduction in quality at further distances from the speaker. Highly recommended for any outdoor environment, you won't be disappointed with this purchase or Crutchfield's outstanding customer service!
Pros: Clear, Crisp Sound 1-inch polymer dome tweeter Easy Installation and hookup Great sound coverage Attractive design Easily mounts vertically or horizontally Available in white, but can be painted
Cons: No cover plate over speaker wire inputs
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Great Sound I used these inside for a wedding chapel and they feel the roomwith full range of sound.
I wasn't sure what I would find when I wanted to add a set of all weather speakers to compliment our covered patio (12'x25'). My comparison is based on my listening experience. Although by no means do I consider myself an audiophile, I do like speakers that produce a balanced and natural sound. The AW400s don't have much low end punch but deliver a clean combination of mids and accurate highs throughout their frequency range. They are easy to listen to for extended periods of time and in my opinion outperform Bose, Yamaha, and others of similar size and price that I auditioned. Although they sound good without a sub, when combined with one, the sound is really solid. without spending a lot of money the AW400s are a "buy" in my book.
