About the Klipsch AW-525

Do you want clear sound in your garden, on your patio, or by your pool? Check out the Klipsch® AW-525. These speakers don't need a huge amplifier to give you great coverage in open outdoor areas. That's because they feature a high sensitivity rating, which measures how loud a speaker plays with a given amount of power.

Rugged, all-weather design
Mount these outdoor speakers in a corner or under roof eaves with the included brackets. All-weather enclosures and rust-proof aluminum grilles stand up to the elements, ensuring years of worry-free performance.

Horn technology for powerful performance
Because high-frequency sounds are more directional than bass frequencies, it's especially important to target them right toward your ears. Klipsch places their titanium tweeter inside a flared opening, known as a "horn," which disperses the highs evenly across your listening area. This design brings out details in everything you listen to, while reducing reflections that can color the sound. The horn also improves dynamics and efficiency, for powerful, "front row" sound that remains crystal-clear at all volume levels.

Product Research

Driver Technology
Enclosure Design
Mounting Options

Driver Technology

Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1" Tractrix Horn loaded dome tweeter for a natural, lifelike sound. The Tractrix Horns deliver a 90-degree by 90-degree dispersion pattern for a broader sound-stage.

Woofers: Each speaker uses a 5-1/4" IMG (Injection Molded Graphite) woofer. The dual ports are front-firing.

Enclosure Design

Weather Resistant Cabinet: Klipsch Reference All-Weather loudspeakers are constructed from UV-resistant, glass-reinforced polypropylene, designed to handle the outdoor elements. They can be painted to match any trim or siding color.


Binding Posts: The gold-plated binding posts will accept bare wire up to 12 gauge, pin connectors, spade connectors, or single banana plugs.

Mounting Options

Mounting Brackets: The included mounting brackets are corrosion resistant powder coated zinc and offer great placement flexibility. They allow you to rotate the speakers almost 180 degrees after they've been mounted, 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, the brackets allow them to swivel up and down. The speakers' shape makes corner placement easy.

I'm upgrading from a 12 year old pair of Boston voyager 2 outdoor speakers,that have served me well. Klipsch sound and speaker sensitivity were determining factors but they have a lot to live up to,I really liked the Boston brand and have them throughout my house.....stay tuned [ F  Mar 11, 2016 ]

I have a Klipsch surround system in my living room and another in my man cave. My 3rd system was bought for my pool. These speakers will be added to the pool system.

1 question already asked

So I recently bought a house and the previous owner had speakers in the yard the wire is already ran but ran into a flower bed. Do these speakers have to be mounted on a post or house or can I sit them on the floor in a flower bed area?

We have some speakers that are specifically designed to be mounted in or on the ground. Give us a call or chat and we can point you in the right direction:
[ Cosmo  Apr 25, 2020 ]  Staff
Theoretically, these will stand up to the elements, as they have rust-proof aluminum grilles and sealed heavy-duty plastic cabinets. But let's be clear: these are NOT the " ROCK" or "Garden" speakers by Klipsch; those are made to stand up to the elements...rain, snow, sun. If you see in the "overview", the description states that these speakers are meant to be placed, mounted under eaves or under a covered patio. I'd suggest mounting, you'll get much more life from these speakers.
[ Chris  Apr 22, 2020 ]
I would raise them above ground level to avoid moisture. Personally, I would elevate them. Mine are mounted under the eve of our home and they sound terrific.
[ RICHARD  Apr 21, 2020 ]
I'm not sure if it can be placed on a flower bed. I would rather consult a Crutchfield specialist, I did it before buying my speakers and it was helpful. The speakers are working great.
[ Guillermo  Apr 21, 2020 ]
I wouldn't put them on the ground. They're going to get muddy and wet. They also would do better with some sort of overhang, they're outdoor, but that's not the same as being submersible in a downpour.
[ Michael  Apr 21, 2020 ]
