Whether you're entertaining guests on your porch or just hanging out poolside, you can count on the Klipsch® AW-650 for superb sonic performance. 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 outdoor 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 titanium 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.

Got wire?
Most speakers don't include any. Learn more about in-wall wiring at the Crutchfield Learning Center.

    Outdoor speakers let you move the party outside

    Bought these to replace a 20 year old pair of speakers on my deck. The difference in sound could not be more astounding. Bass, detail and imaging-from an outdoor speaker. Should have done this years ago.

    Pros: sound

    Cons: hey are large, take this into account for planning placement.

    Installed these on my lake house backside over my deck which faces the lake. This is where we spend most of our time. The speakers are about 14-16 feet apart for max seperation. Since we are only there every other weekend I take them down when we leave to avoid theft. They are easy to remove and replace especially since I added banana plugs to the speaker wire coming out of my house. I am using a temporary book shelf receiver to drive them until I get a Denon receiver at a later date. The sound quality is excellent and has planty of base. Can't wait to see how they will sound when we get a decent receiver to drive them.

    Pros: Excellent sound quality with plenty of bass. Easy to remove and replace.

    Cons: None

    I bought a Bose 251 system for around my pool and wasn't completely satisfied. I then bought the AW-650 for a side by side comparison. Returned the Bose the next day after install. I am a life long Klipsch fan after buying these speakers!

    Pros: Easy to install, amazing sound

    Cons: Their physical size is a little big.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I'm a huge Klipsch fan, and these speakers have that "Klipsch" sound to them. They easily fill up our outdoor kitchen area with high quality sound. Because I mounted them on the ceiling, I can only rotate them up and down. It would have been nice to be able to swivel them right to left. It's not a big problem, since the speakers do a pretty good job of filling the area with sound.

    Pros: Great sound quality. They're big, but not heavy. Easy to mount.

    Cons: None

    Klipsch speakers sound great. Purchased these along with Definitive Technologies AW 6500. Klipsch was a much cleaner, wider sound (horn) and better bass than Def Tech. Wish they were a little smaller but than again might not get the sound.

    I bought 2 pair of these and connected them @ 4 ohms to a sturdy Yamaha receiver/amp. Wonderful sound !! I broadcast music out of my back deck to the wide open river where I live. Great, clear sound at all volumes (driving with 100 watt per channel amp). Of course, they can't produce the bass spectrum that a sub is capable of, but I believe I have a discerning ear and I love the full range performance. I have not heard any outdoor speakers that i like better!!

    Pros: great sound, easy install, great look

    Cons: none, really. you get what you pay for!!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    These Klipsch AW-650 speakers are the third set of outdoor speakers I have tried in this particular location. First I had a set of Paradigm speakers and then a pair of Bose speakers but neither one provided the sound quality that I was looking for. These Klipsch AW-650 speakers were on sale so I took a chance and bought them. I couldn't be more pleased. They fill my entire backyard with beautiful sound. I live in the country so I can really blast these babies without bothering the neighbors.

    Pros: These sound almost as good as my living room speakers!

    Cons: These are big speakers and you may need help installing them. But once they are installed you will be happy, happy, happy.

    Unbelievable speaker quality! I was torn on what to order for my outdoor patio area but after reading the reviews on these Klipsch speakers I was sold. Got them in and installed them and was even more impressed. Great sound and extremely clear even with older style tuner. Will be upgrading that soon as well. If you're thinking about buying these just stop thinking and buy them, you won't be disapointed!!!

    Pros: Sound, clarity, look, ease of installation

    Cons: Not a ton of bass but overall sound outweighs this con!!!

    I wanted a pair of speakers for my garage that would be out of the way and sound good. These were perfect, with the mounting brackets I was able to put them on the ceiling and run the wire thru the attic. They sound great.

    Pros: Nice design of speakers and brackets, sound quality is good.

    Cons: Honestly no complaints yet. Have only had them for six months, and they worked just the way I was hoping.

    Written By David in Texas, DFW area on Friday, September 13, 2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I was a little hesitant when I first pulled them out of the box because they were much larger than I had envisioned from looking at pictures online. I went ahead and installed them under a patio roof and they are not obtrusive. I did not have a lot of room with the mounting brackets but installation was fairly simple, and the large side screws were easy to get in while dangling from the top of a tall ladder! I am really happy with the sound, they really started to open up after 20 hours or so break in time. The bass response is deep and tight, and now I am just waiting for them to go on sale again to buy a second pair. Tested using a Marantz Receiver at 125 watts per channel, and a Yamaha at 100 watts per channel.

    Pros: Sound Great!

    Cons: Large Enclosure

    Great sounding speakers. Fills the 1 acre backyard nicely. Use them with a denon 2312 on zone 2. The installation was easy except for snaking some wires. Mounted under the eves about 12 feet apart. Brackets are solid and easy to mount to with the big thumb screws. Very happy with them. Would recommend and have. Maybe my neighbors wouldn't recommend them :-)

    Pros: Sound great. Cant say enough about them. Caught them on sale 150 off. Turn them up full throttle and not even a crackle. Top notch outdoor speaker for sure.

    What can i say about the Klipsch AW-650 well they are a must have. If u are serious about your outdoor, backyard sound run, don't walk to your nearest electronics store or website and purchase u won't be disappointed. The sound quality coming from my old JVC receiver (brought outta retirement for backyard duty) is second to none deep bass, clean highs, rock the deck fills the yard and can even be heard in the front yard. These are sizeable speakers that perform admirably. Don't cheat yourself with other brands of exterior speakers . My money was well spent.

    Pros: Bass performance Mids and highs crisp Look good also

    Cons: None yet

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    WOW! I've installed a lot of speakers over the years (insert expensive name brand here) and only been blown away by a few. These speakers rock! An outdoor environment is a harsh location physically and acoustically for any speaker but these handle the location great. I installed 2 pairs in different locations and they sounded amazing in a brick corner and on vinyl with no wall on one side. The bass output is insane for a 6.5" speaker mainly due to the large enclosure. Klipsch are always great but these speakers exceeded my expectations.

    Pros: Amazing Crystal clear sound with surprising bass response

    Cons: A little big but worth the bass they put out

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I upgraded to these speakers from a set of wireless units...what a difference! For someone who enjoys all types of music, the crisp clear full range of sound experienced with these speakers gives the music played a sound second only to a live performance. From Rock to Country to Classical, I couldn't be happier with the quality.

    Pros: Clear full range of sound...I couldn't be more pleased with their performance.

    Cons: In order to generate a large sound, the speakers are on the large side for patio units. I taped the bezel around the grill and the wiring area with masking tape and painted the back a dark brown to match the trim on my house. This highlighted the white speaker face reduced the visual size of the depth of the units.

    After working through the wide range of possible choices, we settled on the AW-650s for our back deck and have been absolutely delighted so far. The patio area is about 45' long x 25' wide, and the AW-650s effortlessly fill the back yard with full-range sound; I was committed to building a weatherproof sub to help with lower frequencies, but the Klipsches do so well that it's really not a priority anymore. Happy customer!

    Pros: Nicely finished, great full-range sound, excellent mounting options.

    Cons: None.

    My husband and I read LOTS of reviews before deciding to splurge on these speakers for our backyard. A few of the reviews made us nervous due to comments about a lack of base. Let me just say ... these speakers are AMAZING! We are sitting here listening to Latin music as I type (the amazing sound is what inspired me to grab my laptop to write this review) and the sounds is incredible - you can hear every note - high,low and in between - with great clarity. The only downside is the size of the speakers - I was very surprised by how large they are but we placed them in our yard such that one is mounted on a 4x4 post behind a bush and the other is at the end of our deck mounted on another post. I would definitely recommend that you measure and check the location where you plan to place the speakers to ensure that they will fit before you order. That said, they didn't fit where we intended to put them but are very pleased with how they worked out none the less. The price is absolutely worth the sound you'll get from these speakers!

    I spent a lot of time researching outdoor speakers for our new deck and I ended up purchasing the Klipsch AW-650. Wow, I am very happy to say the least. I had a set of Bose 151's at our old house and the 650's are by far my favorite. I realize there are better Bose out there but I am very satisfied with the 650's. I am spending more time on the deck just to listen and be amazed with these speakers. I mounted them up in the corner of the soffet and this results in great bass and crystal clear sound. They will crank up way louder than I need to go and I will admit I like to turn them up. We had friends over for a party a couple of weeks ago I received several comments on the speakers and it made the party a big success. Can't wait to have another one. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for outdoor speakers. I thought they were a little pricy but now that I have them installed and in use I don't think about the price at all. Buy them you won't regret it.

    Great outdoor choice

    i purchased these klipsch aw 650 speakers and a set of the definitive technology
    outdoor speakers at the same size. While installing I hooked up one of each
    speaker at the same time. The klipsch speaker was louder, clearer, and had more
    bass than the def techs. I really wanted the def techs to sound better because they
    are a slightly smaller speaker housing but it was not even close! I've tried many
    other speaker brands but I keep going back to klipsch because of the clarity and
    deep bass from a midsize speaker housing.

    Was replacing an old pair of Polk outdoor speakers, was a little reluctant to pay up
    for these. Flawless installation due to well designed mounting system, and the
    sound is the best I have heard from outdoor speakers. Contrary to a prior review,
    there is PLENTY of bass, and I have these speakers mounted on a flat wall, no
    corner to help the low end. What a great purchase, highly recommended.

    Works great with Sonos

    Written By Anonymous, Concord, CA on Saturday, June 19, 2010

    I live on a busy corner and have these speakers on my front patio. You do not need to crank them to get to hear them clearly over traffic noise, but if you do crank them....wow. They get loud enough to irritate the most forgiving neighbors. At high volume there is no sound degradation, they are super clear. Even being pushed by the Sonos 50 watts per channel they perform incredibly. Best investment I have ever made.

    These hit the mark....

    Written By Peter, San Mateo, CA on Sunday, March 21, 2010

    To complete our backyard remodel last summer, I made a last minute decision to add outdoor all weather speakers. I researched Bose, Polk, and Mirage before finally deciding to go with the Klipsch AW-650's.

    My backyard is 26 feet deep by 64 feet wide. Given some of the challenges I was having trying to run speaker wire to various areas of my backyard, I mounted these on the side fence (closest to our patio), about 14 feet apart and 5 feet off the ground, pointing across the backyard. The end result...fantastic sound that fills the entire yard.

    I also added the recommended In-wall (on-wall) Volume control, and now I can't imagine not having it. Just buy it...don't think about it...just buy it...trust me. You have no idea how many times you will enjoy turning down the music from outside vs. running inside and turning these down at the source.

    At first I was worried about the larger size of these speakers, but it turned out to be a non issue, once I mounted these on the fence posts.

    Bottom line: Only needed two speakers, plenty of power, they look great, and they are withstanding the elements very nicely. I LOVE these speakers.. ZERO regret.

    My wife & I listened to a number of different outdoor speakers at a local
    store. The best sounding ones were from Klipsch, but they were only the
    5.25" units. I Did some research on Crutchfield and found these reviews
    very helpful. When I installed the Aw-650s we could not believe our ears!
    They are SO CLEAR, even out by the pool. I mounted them in corners about
    a foot away from two walls. They have great bass, crystal clear mids and
    highs. We have decided to replace all of our home speakers with Klipsch.
    These outdoor speakers sound better than our Sony indoor speakers.

    WOW! Worth the money.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    For years I went the cheaper route and was never happy with the sound in my backyard. I have a large deck and a pool area that always seemed to come up short in the music and sound department. This time around, I took my time and read the reviews on all the products and decided to spend the $ and see if there really is a difference. From the moment I installed them and began playing music I was impressed. I found myself saying WOW as each new song played and the range of music from rock to reggae was enjoyed. Definately worth the money, I only wish I had purchased them from the start and avoided all the others makers and disappointment. Probebly could have saved myself some money if I had just spend the money in the first place. Price is a bit steep, but trust me these are worth the $. You will not be sorry.

    Happy, Happy, Happy!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Purchased these for my rear outside deck area... they are great! Running these from a Denon 4308CI 140 watts/channel and they rock! Great bass response too....worth the $$.

    The push over the cliff.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Thanks Crutchfield for exchanging my AW-525 speakers for these Klipsch best models. Read my review on them also. I wrestled with the idea of dropping another C-note to upgrade to these and am I ever glad I did! Speaker efficiency rules in the outdoors. If you have a big back yard, 95 db will give you commanding sound for a real cookout or pool party. Try the other wimpy brands mostly rated at 89 db and you'll be straining to hear anything. Snooty "audiophile-types" will tell you how exquisite their over-priced under-powered snob-boxes sound. But who sits outside in Lazyboys five feet away from their golden speakers listening to Mozart concertos? If you want to really party, these AW-650's are worth the price and put out incredible sound that will flat out amaze you. I'm thinking of adding in the Klipsch AW-800 subwoofer next, that is, if I don't end up in jail from complaining neighbors!

    I've had mine for about 3 years now and they still sound just as good as they day I bought them. I reviewed outdoor speakers for about 3 mos before going with these and I've never once regretted the decision. Sound is great at all levels, and these will play at a high level. They were completely exposed to the elements (extreme heat and cold) on my last house for 2 years and never once did they show any wear/tear or sound loss.

    Driver Technology

    Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1" Tractrix Horn loaded dome tweeter for a natural, lifelike sound. The Tractrix Horns deliver a 90-degree by 90-degree dispersion pattern for a broader sound-stage.

    Woofers: Each speaker uses a 6-1/2" IMG (Injection Molded Graphite) woofer. The dual ports are front-firing.

    Enclosure Design

    Weather Resistant Cabinet: Klipsch Reference All-Weather loudspeakers are constructed from UV-resistant, glass-reinforced polypropylene, designed to handle the outdoor elements. They can be painted to match any trim or siding color.


    Binding Posts: The gold-plated binding posts will accept bare wire up to 12 gauge, pin connectors, spade connectors, or single banana plugs.

    Mounting Options

    Mounting Brackets: The included mounting brackets are corrosion resistant powder coated zinc and offer great placement flexibility. They allow you to rotate the speakers almost 180 degrees after they've been mounted, letting you direct the sound to different areas as needed. If the speakers are mounted vertically, the brackets allow them to swivel side to side. If the speakers are mounted horizontally, the brackets allow them to swivel up and down. The speakers' shape makes corner placement easy.
