About the Russound 5B65

The Russound OutBack— indoor or outdoor speaker? Yes!

Russound asks, when you've got terrific speakers like the Acclaim 5 Series OutBack, why limit them? Sure, you can use these speakers in weather-stressed environments like your pool, patio or deck. But they also stand up perfectly to life's other challenges like tax-time in your home office, meal-time in your steamy kitchen, or downtime in your "man-cave." Sealed enclosures, salt-tested marine grade hardware, and aluminum grilles make them tough. Wall mounts and bookshelf feet are included to make them usable anywhere in your home. Flexible placement lets you mount this speaker horizontally, vertically, in corners, on poles, or standing upright.

Cajun me yea from Jeanerette La on 2/15/2013

Adam at Crutchfield really helped me out alot on this. I looked at the bose out door speakers but the price for what you got was to much. the russound 5B65W 6.5 outdoor speakers sounds great the Bass is great not BOOMing your head to the next street. The price of $100 for the white cant beat it. Crutchfield service is great and no charge for shipping How can you beat it

Pros: can't beat Crutchield service, the quality of product, and great online advice [thanks Adam] and free shipping whyn go any where else

Cons: NONE

Upgraded to these speakers from the free ones that were offered with the Sonos ZP120. I think they sound great and suprized by the amount of bass they had outside.

Pros: Mounts easily.

Cons:

I was unfamiliar with these speakers when I called to talk to a sales rep. I was actually comparing Polk and Yamaha, which seemed to fit my budget best. After hearing about these from the rep and looking at their specs, I decided to give them a try. They had a pair that were open box, too, so I saved a few more dollars. When I got them in, I was surprised at their size. When compared to other outdoor speakers, they seemed to be much larger. They actually weren't that much bigger, but they seemed to be so well made that they compared favorably to a solid indoor speaker. I attached the included brackets to my brick wall under the patio and had them connected in minutes. The push-type connectors were very solid. (I did cheat since I had they guys who ran my surround and sub cables run wires outside at the same time.) I fired up my receiver (Onkyo) and tried the Zone 2 feature with my iPhone. The sound was great and the bass was particularly good for being outside. I am still trying to see if I can adjust the tone for zone 2 at my receiver, but that's not related to the speakers. For the money, I don't see how you could be disappointed. By the way, if you need to install into brick or concrete, I tried these tapping screws that are blue. They use a special bit and once the hole is drilled, they tighten right into the brick. Don't recall the name, but they worked great.

Pros: Great sound, solid bass, well made.

Cons: None

Features

Design: The Russound Acclaim 5 Series OutBack outdoor speakers are designed and built to withstand the rigors of outdoor environment. They can be used in a wide range of temperatures, and are unaffected by extremes in humidity. This 5B65 package includes 2 outdoor speakers (with integrated brackets), 2 grilles, 2 pair of end caps, and 2 bookshelf feet.

Woofer: The 5B65 speakers feature 6-1/2" injection-molded polypropylene woofers with rubber surrounds.

Tweeter: The 5B65s have 1" Teteron dome tweeters.

Terminals: Each speaker has a single pair of spring post terminals that can accept up to 12 gauge speaker wire. Russound recommends that you use 16 gauge speaker wire for runs up to 100 feet, 14 gauge up to 150 feet, and 12 gauge up to 200 feet.

Grilles: Black painted aluminum grilles are included for each speaker. The grilles (as well as the mounting hardware) are corrosion-resistant to give you years of service in any kind of weather.

Painting: The speaker mounting bracket, enclosure, end caps, and grille can be painted to match your home's exterior if you desire. Care should be given to prevent getting paint on the terminals or drivers.

Installation Options: The 5B65 speakers can be installed horizontally or vertically using the provided mounting bracket. The speakers can rotate on the bracket approximately 60° left or right. The bracket has provisions for corner mounting or pole mounting (using U-bolts), as well. Each speaker comes with a bookshelf foot that attaches to one end of the speaker for installing the speaker vertically on a flat surface.
