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.
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.
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

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
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
