Our take on the Klipsch CA650T

by James Ralston
Klipsch

An outdoor speaker for home or commercial applications

Get classic Klispch sound for your deck or porch at home, or for your restaurant's outdoor seating area or patio bar. The CA650T features multi-tap transformers for use with 70-volt or 100-volt distributed audio systems. Or you can set it to "bypass" mode and simply use these rugged, weather-resistant speakers with your standard home audio receiver or amplifier. Either way, you'll enjoy detailed sound and years of reliable operation.

Driver Technology

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.

Enclosure Design

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.

Connections

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 watts
  • Bypass Setting: 8 ohm nominal

Mounting Options

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.
