    Driver Technology

    Drivers: The Klipsch All-Weather Rock speaker (AWR-650-SM) is a two-way, dual channel design using a single high performance bass driver for the low frequencies and a pair of Polymer dome high frequency tweeters for wide, even coverage inside a bass-reflex enclosure with a side-firing port. The Rock speaker features a dual voice coil 6-1/2" polymer woofer and two 3/4" polymer dome tweeters. The speaker's dual tweeter design allows it to play both left and right stereo signals with precision and clarity.

    Enclosure Design

    All Weather Enclosure: The Klipsch AWR-650-SM is constructed of durable weather proof materials such as fiberglass enclosure and powered coated aluminum grilles that are UV-resistant. The Rock enclosure houses a durable polymer woofer cone and polymer dome tweeters. This ensures that the rock speaker will look and sound good for years to come regardless of environmental extremes. The Klispch All-Weather Rock speaker is perfect for lawns, gardens, patio, decks or any other place where exposure to the elements makes conventional loudspeaker usage unsuitable.

    Connections

    Speaker Configuration: The AWR-650-SM can be configured as a single two channels speaker or used in pairs as a single channels speaker. The AWR-650-SM is provided with a 4-conductor cable to be able connect either 1 or 2 audio channel. Each channel on the AWR-650-SM has an 8-ohm impedance when connecting both channels of the speaker. When joining the inputs for a 1 channel connection, the AWR-650-SM becomes a 4-ohm speaker.

    Wire Splicing: Unless the AWR-650-SM will be connected to an amplifier/receiver directly using the 3' speaker lead, wire splicing to a separate set of high quality, moisture resistant speaker cable will be required (sold separately). The Rock speaker comes with five wire-nuts to add additional speaker wire.

    Mounting Options

    Placement: Due to its aesthetic design and up-titled orientation, this Rock loudspeaker is designed for low or ground level placement. If a single AWR-650-SM is connected in a two channel configuration it is best to center the speaker on the preferred side for even coverage. To achieve the bets performance from a pair of AWR-650-SMs, place them on the same side of your intended listening area and space them 8 to 20 feet apart. For a higher quality stereo image some degree of toe-in, toward the primary listening area may be required to achieve the desired effect. Some additional Bass will result if you place the speaker in a corner or near a wall.

    Securing The Speaker: The Klipsch AWR-650-SM is includes a security eyelet on the underside of the speaker. This permanent eyelet can be used to attach the supplied security cable to the supplied metal stake for added security.

    AWESOME SPEAKERS

    Written By Stephen D, Harrisburg PA on Wednesday, July 23, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    These speakers "rock" I installed these under our deck where we have a finished patio with Jacuzzi. We have a small 20' strip of flowers there with mulch. After running my speaker wire (14gauge) to the speakers I pointed them into the center of the patio...one on the far left, one on the far right. These sound awesome with wonderful bass response even with the Jacuzzi running.

    Pros: Cant go wrong with Klipsch. Buy them. They look real, not too heavy, and look great in any landscaped area. The speakers have just enough weight to keep them to the ground. Klipsch provides a landscape hold down steel peg with each speaker for added security to the ground.

    Cons: I was timid in wanting to spend $300 per speaker... would have been nicer to purchase as a set for $300....but they are worth the money!!

    Awesome sound

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    These speaker sound awesome. The bass response is EXCELLENT for an outdoor speaker. They play loud and clean. So well in fact that I've already had a few conversations with the neighbors since I installed them. I only gave 4 stars instead of 5 since one of my speakers won't play in stereo. The others all work fine. I'll update my review after talking to Crutchfield support

    Pros: Loud, clear, and great bass.

    Cons: See above

    Great treble and midrange outdoor speaker

    Written By Vsdi, New York, NY on Monday, April 02, 2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Purchased this speaker to replace a blown KLH rock speaker. Tried using one speaker since it can be hooked up to reproduce both channels. The treble and midrange are incredibly clear but I ended up ordering a second speaker to hear the separation of the two channels.

    Pros: Great crystal clear highs and midrange

    Cons: Bass is ok but not as good as the KLH that these replaced. Price is high considering they are made in China.

    Awesome sound

    Written By Mike, Chicago, IL on Friday, May 28, 2010

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have had these for two seasons now and they are wonderful. I was a little skeptical because of the price, but with the warranty and quality, they are perfect. The sound is very deep and rich. the sandstone color looks somewhat fake, but I have them on both sides of my patio (about 38ft apart) pointing to the center of my patio (think of a triangle), and because of their location I do not see them very much. So the color does not bother me.

    The bass is surprisingly deep and that gives the sound a full feel. I recommend spending the extra $$$ for these.

    Amazing Outdoor Sound...These Speakers ROCK

    Written By John, Brooklyn, NY on Saturday, May 31, 2008

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Not only do the Rock Speakers look great in my newly landscaped yard, but the sound is truly amazing. I now have Klipsch throughout my house. I sent my Bose back. I am glad that there is finally an outdoor rock speaker worthy of praise.

    I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: If you want to use the Klipsch rock speakers as a theater set up with one being the center channel that will definitely work. I don't think you would have any issue at all doing it. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
