Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Overview: 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.
Woofers: The AW-800-SW uses an 8" IMG (Injection Molded Graphite) woofer.
The dual ports are front-firing.
Crossover: In addition to the built-in low-pass
crossover for this speaker, there is also a high-pass crossover and a set of stereo
speaker level outputs to connect a set of full range speakers. The crossover
point is fixed at 150 Hz.
There is a mono/stereo switch on the back of the speaker. If powered by a mono
amp, set to mono and connect the amp to either speaker input. If powered by a
stereo amp, set to stereo and connect the amp to both speaker inputs.
Mounting Brackets: The
included mounting bracket is corrosion resistant powder coated zinc and offers
great placement flexibility. You can rotate the speaker almost 180 degrees after they've been mounted, letting you
direct the sound as needed. If the speaker is mounted
vertically, the bracket allows it to swivel side to side. If the speaker is
mounted horizontally, the bracket allows it to swivel up and down. The
speaker's shape makes corner placement easy.
Binding Posts: The gold-plated
binding posts will accept bare wire up to 12 gauge, pin connectors, spade connectors,
or single banana plugs.
