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.
Tweeters: The speaker has a 1" titanium dome tweeter, loaded
in a 90° x 90° Tractrix horn for a natural, lifelike sound. The square-mouthed
horn allows the speaker to be mounted horizontally or vertically without
affecting the coverage pattern.
Woofers: The speaker uses a 6-1/2" IMG (Injection Molded
Graphite) woofer. The dual ports are front-firing.
Weather Resistant Cabinet: This Klipsch Reference
all-weather loudspeaker is constructed from durable UV-resistant ABS plastic
with a rustproof aluminum grille. The CA-650T can be used for residential,
commercial, or recreational environments. The speaker and grille can be painted
to match any indoor or outdoor decor.
Multi-tap Transformer: The CA-650T includes a 60-watt
multi-tap transformer for 70- or 100-volt installations. There is also a bypass
position that allows normal 8-ohm operation for installations that do not
require a transformer. The speaker has a 4-screw barrier strip terminal to allow
you (or your installer) to daisy chain your speakers. The transformer has a
rotary switch for setting the appropriate tap setting:
- 70-Volt Settings: 60 watts, 30 watts, 15 watts, 7.5
watts, 3.7 watts
- 100-Volt Settings: 60 watts, 30 watts, 15 watts, 7.5
- Bypass Setting: 8 ohm nominal
Mounting Bracket: The included heavy-gauge C-style mounting
bracket is corrosion-resistant powder coated zinc and offers great placement
flexibility. It allows you to rotate the speaker almost 180° after mounting,
letting you direct the sound as needed. The speaker should be mounted to a wall
stud using 2-1/2" to 3" #10 or #12 pan-head screws (not included). 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. Once positioned, the
speaker can be locked down at the desired angle with the oversized knobs on the
top and bottom of the speaker. In addition, a pair of Nylock nuts are included
for additional security.
Threaded Insert: In addition to the mounting bracket, the
CA-650T has a 3/8"-16 threaded insert for use with optional mounts to give you
greater mounting flexibility.
