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.
Pure Aluminum Dome Tweeter: An exclusive magnetic fluid-cooled,
moving-coil, aluminum dome 1" tweeter brings together the performance advantages
of metal domes (greater clarity) and soft domes (smoother sound and better
dampening) in one state-of-the-art tweeter design, for detail, clarity and
High-Definition Midbass Driver w/ Cast-Basket: An Aerodynamically
designed, magnetically inert, non-resonant cast basket minimizes reflections of
the sound radiating from the back of the 6.5" polypropylene woofer with butyl
rubber surround and preserves structural and magnetic integrity for significant
performance advantages in the areas of bass reproduction, lifelike midrange
clarity, and dynamic range.
Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Network: The 1" tweeter and 6.5" woofer are
perfectly blended together with a complex phase-coherent Linkwitz-Riley
crossover network with user selectable equalization.
EQ Switch: There is a two position
switch marked "HF EQ" on the top of the crossover circuit board facing the
speaker baffle. This can be set to either "H" (brighter) or "L" (less bright),
depending on your personal listening preference as well as your chosen mounting
Rigid Non-Resonant Low-Profile Frame: Molded of a glass-filled polymer
compound to eliminate baffle resonance, the UIW 65's frame maintains sonic
purity by defeating diffraction, giving it a wide, dynamic sound stage with
minimized resonance or coloration.
Paintable: The UIW 65 in-ceiling loudspeaker metal mesh
grille and polymer frame can be spray painted to match the color of your wall
without any loss of sound quality. Simply remove the grille from the speaker and
place it on a drop cloth, newspaper, or plastic sheet and spray paint it with
canned spray paint that closely matches the desired finish/color (available at home improvement stores).
A paint mask is supplied to protect the drivers when painting the frame.
Spring-Loaded Speaker Terminals: The UIW 65 features a pair
of heavy-duty, gold-plated, spring-loaded posts designed to accept up to 10 gauge wire,
banana plugs (single only), or pin-connectors.
Applications: The UIW 65 is perfect for use as a front, surround, or
center channel speaker in a stealth home theater system, or for producing
exceptional sounding music throughout your home.
Mounting Options: The UIW 65 can be mounted in-wall using
the six integrated rotating clamps and mounting screws. A cutout template is
supplied to help you cut a 6.375" (w) x 9.75" (h) hole. You will need to allow
at least 0.625" of space around the cutout and have at least 3.3125" of clearance
for mounting depth (using 1/2" thick mounting surface). You should allow at
least 1" from the edge of the cutout to nearest obstruction inside the
