Outdoor stereo-input rock speaker (Sandstone)
Our take on the Klipsch AWR-650-SM by Crutchfield's Loren Barstow
Disguise your outdoor sound with the Klipsch® AWR-650-SM. This stealthy speaker imitates an actual rock to blend in seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. It sports a 6-1/2" woofer for deep, punchy bass and two 3/4" tweeters for crisp highs. This dual-tweeter design allows the '650-SM to play both channels of a stereo signal with precision and clarity. You can also use two of these speakers for a conventional stereo setup in a larger area. Plus, the UV-resistant enclosure ensures you'll enjoy smooth sound at cookouts and pool parties for years to come.

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 audio channel. Each channel on the AWR-650-SM has an 8-ohm impedance when 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 speaker wire.
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 security.

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: If you want to use the Klipsch rock speakers as a theater set up with one being the center channel that will definitely work. I don't think you would have any issue at all doing it. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

Thanks for your question. No it is not wireless. It has 3 ft of speaker wire that is already preattached to it. Hope that helps. [ Kenny Jun 14, 2016 ] Staff
