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.
Weather Resistant: The Oasis
MK II uses a weather resistant sealed enclosure to help protect it from
the outdoor elements. Although weather resistant, a mounting location should be chosen to protect the
speaker from direct exposure to rain, high winds, or sunlight. The speaker
is not designed to be submerged underwater.
Woofers: Each speaker uses a
6.5" injection molded polypropylene woofer with a rubber surround.
Each speaker uses a 1" dome tweeter made of Teteron, a durable synthetic
material that's impervious to moisture.
The included mounting brackets offer enormous placement flexibility. They're
mounted to the top and bottom of the speakers (into 1/4-20 treaded inserts) and
allow more than 180° rotation after
mounting, letting you direct the sound to different areas as needed. If the
speakers are mounted vertically, the brackets allow them to swivel side to side.
If the speakers are mounted horizontally, they swivel up and down. The bracket
adds approximately 1" to the height and depth of the speaker. There are also two
6mm threaded inserts on the back of the speaker cabinet, 60mm apart, for use
with an optional aftermarket mounting bracket.
Speaker Connections: The
speakers use spring-loaded post terminals for easy connection of bare speaker wire
up to 10 gauge,
or angled pin connectors. The terminals are recessed far enough that most banana
plugs will not fit. Spade lugs will not work on this type of terminal and the
posts are too far apart for dual banana plugs. The speakers include two 50'
lengths of white 18-gauge speaker wire.
